105 years ago today - Oct 13, 1917

The Deseret News reports that "Bishop Robert McQuarrie has resigned from the bishopric of the Ogden Second ward after rendering efficient service as bishop for a period of 40 years." During Mormonism's first century, presiding officers have the option to honorably resign for personal reasons such as family stress, business problems, ill health, or simply weariness of the position. It is customary to tell their congregation.
