On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

August 15

Sinking with the Titanic on this day (1921) is William H. Harbeck. Although not a member of the Church, his film company announced a major production about the history of the Church to be titled, The Romance of Mormonism. While a crew began filming the Salt Lake Temple and other Utah sites, Harbeck traveled to Europe and then booked return passage on the ill-fated Titanic.
