About

Next to Brigham Young, George Q. Cannon was arguably the best-known Latter-day Saint in the last half of the nineteenth century. His record covers half a century, a period in which he served as an editor and publisher, a businessman, an educator, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, a territorial delegate in Congress, and a counselor to church presidents Brigham Young, John Taylor, Wilford Woodruff, and Lorenzo Snow.

This website publishes for the first time George Q. Cannon’s journal from 1855 through 1901. It also reproduces Cannon’s journal from 1849 through 1854, which was previously published in two print volumes.
