85 years ago today - Sep 14, 1935

[Heber J. Grant]
Such a thing as a millionaire being made among the leading officials of the Church has never happened. I doubt if it ever will happen. Nearly all of the Authorities of the Church when they have passed away, have passed away as poor men. Some of them have been fortunate enough to make investment that have grown, and they have been prosperous. There is not today a single wealthy man in the Presidency of the Church or the Council of the Twelve Apostles, or the Seven Presidents of Seventies, or the Presiding Bishopric.

[Heber J. Grant, Letter to Mrs. T. William Rhoads, 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]
