Title The Mormon outpost of San Bernardino, California
Date 1947-04
Description In this paper I have tried to make a summary of the colonizing policies and the methods used by the Mormon leaders. Emphasis is placed on the San Bernardino settlement in the "outer cordon." Because of the similarity in procedure I have reviewed the founding of sore of the settlements in the inner cordon." San Bernardino became the southwestern outpost and the key settlement in the "Corridor to the sea." It offered greater attractions and possibilities than any of the other outposts and was by far the largest undertaking. San Bernardino was founded in a region already occupied by non-Mormons. This definitely had an influence upon the type of control the leaders were able to apply. The wisdom of the venture can only be appraised in terms of the experiences gained and the possible values such an undertaking would have had had it fulfilled its purpose. The terms ''Gentiles" and "Saints" are used to denote Non-Mormons and Mormons* This usage is customary among Mormon Church members. To the Historian of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I wish to express a profound feeling of gratitude for permission to collect historical data from files and original records of the church. Deep appreciation is expressed to Dr, Leland Hargrave Creer for guidance and valuable suggestions on the content of this paper. I am very grateful to Dr. G. Homer Durham and Dr. W. Harold Dalgliesh for their assistance in the writing of this thesis. I, also, wish to thank the Librarian of the University of Utah for helpful materials obtained from the Treasure Room and files of the Library,
