On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

Jan . 11

In addition to being in the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, George Q. Cannon (who was born on this day, 1827) had a long career in publishing that he used to support the Church. He was an editor of the Deseret News, published the Juvenile Instructor, started the Western Standard newspaper, and assisted in the publishing of the Times and Seasons and the Nauvoo Neighbor. His other books and articles about the Church were intended to help the youth and educate the general public about the Mormons. https://history.lds.org/exhibit/george-q-cannon-a-mighty-instrument?lang=eng
