Title Daniel Rasmussen, A Man of intergrity
Description years old when he died. I had to speak a piece in Sunday School that day. Our neighbor who was a tailor had made me a new suit to wear. 1 went to father's bedside to thank him for the clothes and recite my piece to him. I saw him no more, for he died that afternoon. One Saturday. 1 took the horses to feed along the ditch banks and planned to stay several days, but mother sent for me to come home for Stake Conference. 1 heard George Q. Cannon bear his testimony and it impressed me very much. 1 attended Snow College the first year of its existence and graduated with the first class. In 1896 I graduated from BYU with a Degree of Pedagogy. Later I received my B.A. Degree from the same institution. My first teaching assignment was in Cedar city schools and I was the only teacher. 1 was called to serve a mission in the Eastern States from June 1899 to August 1901. The first summer 1 traveled without purse or script and the last year 1 was President of the mission. When 1 left, mother told me she would not live to sec me return. She sent some good things far me to eat on the train with Jennie Jorgensen who delivered them to me at Thistle, as she was on her way to Castle Dale. She said later there was a design in her timing her trip, because this was the beginning of our friendship. Mother died 19 March 1900 at the age of 57 and it was not the same when 1 returned home without her there. School contracts had been made when I came home, but the local board offered me a class made up of a mixture of 3rd and 5th grade pupils from over-crowded classes in the Hamilton School. Later I was transferred to the High School and supervised the Jr. High division. This continued for several years, and then I was given the Social Science Department and this was my assignment until the time of my retirement in 1939. 16
