Greg Prince at USU 2010 — The Audio

Greg Prince, author of David O. McKay and the Rise of Modern Mormonism, was here at USU today.  For those interested, I recorded the audio for both of his presentations.

The first was delivered in front of Dr. Philip Barlow’s undergraduate Joseph Smith class, and dealt mostly with the writing of his book (from a historian’s perspective).

Presentation #1

The second was more like a keynote, and dealt primarily with his main observations from his book about President McKay.

Presentation #2

For those so inclined, please enjoy!

    I cannot thank you enough for making this available. This is a wonderful service for person’s like myself who could never dream of attending a function like this in Logan. Thanks for making the future happen.

    I will say I should have not listened while I was driving on the freeway. I almost had a car wreck when someone from the audience asked “Who is Sterling McMurrin?”

    Either You’re getting older or the younger generation is getting more uninformed.

    Thanks for posting these. Prince’s McKay book is a favorite of mine, but I had no idea just how much time and work it had taken. Also, interesting to hear that he forwent royalties to make the book more affordable.
