Information on the Mountain Meadows massacre is being sought to aid in preparation of a book to be published on the subject next year. Richard E. Turley Jr., managing director of the Family and Church History Department; Glen M. Leonard, director of the Museum of Church History and Art; and Ronald W. Walker, professor of history at Brigham Young University, have announced that they are preparing a book, tentatively titled Tragedy at Mountain Meadows, to be published by Oxford University Press.
The volume will be a forthright and accurate history of the massacre, and its authors wish to be as complete in their research as possible. To that end, they are soliciting the help of anyone who has information on the massacre.
Please send information to Brian Reeves, 50 E. North Temple Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84150, or call him at (801) 240-5488.
