60 years ago today - Jul 1, 1962

Following the release of Lowell L. Bennion as the director of the LDS institute of religion at the University of Utah, George S. Tanner writes in his diary: "The way it looks to me is that the Brethren have suddenly become worried that there is a little too much liberalism among some of our better trained men and they are trying to stamp it out." Tanner was the institute director for twenty-eight years in Idaho and has taught continuously in the program since 1923.
