60 years ago today - Nov 26, 1962

[Hugh B. Brown]
"It is certainly regrettable [that Reed Benson, son of Ezra Taft Benson] is permitted to continue to peddle his bunk [conspiratorial, conservative political philosophy] in our Church houses. The matter was brought sharply to the attention of the President by Brother Moyle during my absence . . ."

[Hugh B. Brown to Richard D. Poll, 26 Nov. 1962, in response to Poll to Brown, 20 Nov. 1962. From D. Michael Quinn, Ezra Taft Benson and Mormon Political Conflicts, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought 26:2 (Summer 1992), also in Quinn, The Mormon Hierarchy: Extensions of Power Salt Lake City (Signature Books, 1994), Chapter 3.]
