    • Extensive History of Heber Grant Ivins writings

      Content Description

      The H. Grant Ivins papers (1897-1973) contain diaries, correspondence, memoirs, unpublished manuscripts, and articles on subjects relating to religion and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). This collection documents one man's transition from a devout believer in the divine authority of the members of the LDS Church hierarchy to an outspoken critic of those he later described to Heber Holt as "mere men who make mistakes and who should be willing to admit these mistakes." The bulk of this collection is associated with Ivins' writings on polygamy and other matters relative to LDS Church doctrine.
