    Biography

    George Quayle Cannon (1827-1901) was a Mormon publisher and attorney who lent travel necessaries to Salt Lake City emigrants. He was later part of a delegation that petitioned the U.S. government for Utah statehood (1872), subsequently serving Utah Territory in the U.S. House of Representatives (1872-1880) until barred from his seat for practising polygamy. [Ms2.C226]
    Heber Jeddy Grant (1855-1945) was President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for twenty-seven years (1918-1945). Before becoming President, he successfully led the fight in Utah for prohibition of alcoholic beverages (1908). Under Grant's leadership the Mormon Church experienced considerable material growth, especially duing the 1920s. His conservative views on religion and politics, however, alienated the liberal wing of his church during the Great Depression and several of the candidates he supported for political office during this period were defeated.
