Claudia will talk about materials concerning Mormons and Salt Lake City that she stumbled across while doing a study of Boston in 1870. She was explicating the diary of an activist named Harriet Hanson Robinson who moved to a Boston suburb and bloomed as “New Woman.” While pouring through the Boston newspapers, Claudia kept coming across long write-ups of people who visited Salt Lake City and came back to tell the tale. The reports offer a new perspective on how Easterners viewed Mormons as the Cullom Bill was under national discussion.

Richard will talk about reconstructing the narrative of early Mormon history in light of the new information that has accumulated over the past fifty years. Most of the discussion will be devoted to questions from the audience about Joseph Smith and early times.
