60 years ago today - Aug 22, 1962

A First Presidency letter to stake presidents: "It is contrary to our counsel and advice that ward, branch or stake premises, chapels or other Church facilities be used in any way for political campaign purposes, whether it be for speech-making, distribution of literature, or class discussions." The First Presidency finds it necessary to reissue these instructions on 5 Mar. 1980.
