45 years ago today - May 9, 1978

The HARVARD CRIMSON prints a story of a visit to an LDS visitor's center titled "Mannequins And Mormons." The author, Cliff Sloan, tells of being asked to sign the guest book so "'we can always keep in touch with you.' Visions of Mormon missionaries gripped me. For all I knew, they'd be coming by my room night and day, proselytizing, smashing bottles of booze. I decided to give a pseudonym, but was somehow unable to think up one on the spur of the moment. For a few minutes, I stood in front of the guest book, drumming my pen, trying to think of a fake name, smiling weakly at Sister Wood. Finally, feeling more foolish than ever, I put down my first and middle names 'Cliff Myer.'"
