Lost Legacy: The Mormon Office of Presiding Patriarch - Smith, E Gary, and Bates, Irene M, and Bates, Irene

The hereditary office of Presiding Patriarch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, first occupied by the father of the Mormon prophet, Joseph Smith, had long seemed the focal point of a struggle for authority between those appointed and those born to leadership positions. This book argues that the office's 1979 demise was inevitable.
