Date 1947
Description The initial work on this thesis '"as begun after consultation with Dr. L. H. Creer, Head, and Dr. G-. Homer Durham of the Department of History and Political Science; of the University of Utah. Since the author requested a subject of consequence both to the State of Utah and its founders the Mormon people, he was guided into research on Dr. John M. Bernhisel. A happier choice could not have been made. Dr. Bernhisel played a vital role in the history of the Mormon Church from its earliest days. His close association with the Prophet Joseph Smith in the troublesome days at Nauvoo lends importance to this study. His work in Washington, as Utah's first Delegate to Congress over a period of ten controversial years, makes his life a prominent one in Utah History. The author wishes to acknowledge his appreciation to Dr. Creer and Dr. Durham for their guidance to this most fascinating study. A special debt is owed to Dr. Gregory Crampton for encouragement, assistance and advice over a long period. The great part of the research was, of necessity, carried on at the Mormon Church Historian's Office. The author received much aid and advice from Mr. A. William Lund, Assistant Church Historian, and Mr. Alvin Smith. Gratitude for their help is hereby expressed. The Staff of the University of Utah Library was most helpful. Mr. L. H. Kirkpatrick, Librarian, and Miss Laura Jean Wheeler, Circulation Librarian, have rendered useful service throughout a long period. To all of these individuals, and others unnamed, including my wife and parents, I express appreciation for assistance in completing a work, which but for them, would be undone.
