100 years ago today - Mar 18, 1920

First Presidency selects Elder George F. Richards to chair a committee to prepare a new edition of the Book of Mormon. Committee members included Anthony W. Ivins, Melvin J. Ballard, and James E. Talmage. Later John A. Widtsoe and Joseph Fielding Smith are added. After finishing with the Book of Mormon the committee takes up preparing a new edition of the Doctrine and Covenants. The main change is the removal of the "Lectures on Faith" which were published in the 1835 edition and called "the Doctrine of the Church."
