46th annual conference of the Mormon History Association begins

In this sesquicentennial year of the founding of St. George in 1861, enthusiasts are gathering to this red-rock locale this weekend for the 46th annual conference of the Mormon History Association.

At the Dixie Center, more than 130 scholars, many of whom are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will give presentations on various aspects of Mormon history.

Speakers include Elder Bruce C. Hafen, president of the St. George Utah LDS Temple and an emeritus general authority of the church. He is a native son of St. George. William MacKinnon, this year's president of the association, will give the presidential address discussing his perspective as "A Presbyterian Afoot in the Mormon Past."
