Additional Information "John Andreas Widtsoe (pron.: /ˈwɪtsoʊ/; 31 January 1872 - 29 November 1952) was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1921 until his death. Widtsoe was also a noted author, scientist, and academician; for a short time he was a professor of agriculture at BYU, and is arguably the founding father of Brigham Young University's college of biology and agriculture. On BYU campus the John A. Widtsoe building is the home of the College of Biology and Agriculture. Soon, however, he returned to Logan to succeed Kerr as president of Utah State University from 1907 to 1916. He also served as the president of the University of Utah from 1916 until his call as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve in 1921;"--wiki.
