[Heber J. Grant]
...I am surprised to learn that young girls of our communities are being enticed into bathing beauty contests, and I am wholly in sympathy with your attitude towards such contests. I am sure that some day your sister will appreciate even more fully than she seems to do now your interest in her welfare. The very name, 'bathing beauty contests' signifies the desire of those promoting such to display the forms of our girls. ... I wish more of our girl would heed counsel as readily. ...

[Heber J. Grant, Letter to Ben W. Infanger, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1910-1951, Privately Published, Salt Lake City, Utah 2010]
