The William E. McLellin Papers, 1854-1880 free pdf During his long life, William E. McLellin moved from one Mormon faction to another, searching for truth but sympathizing with dissenters in each new group. In fact, he was a genuine, if illtempered, intellectual among Joseph Smith's less academically oriented original twelve apostles, and his writings illuminate the founding period of Mormonism. Ironically, the items in this compilation were discovered because document forger Mark Hofmann claimed to have found "apple crates full" of such material. In fact, Hofmann had found nothing, but the publicity surrounding his claim led to the discovery of the McLellin papers. The collection is introduced and contextualized by the editors and contributors, including former RLDS Church Historian Richard P. Howard, Salt Lake Tribune reporter Dawn House, Brigham Young University Professor Thomas G. Alexander, and AHA award-winning historian D. Michael Quinn.
