New exhibit showcases women of the early days of Relief Society

Historical documents and items from the early days of the Relief Society will be on display during a three-day exhibit at the Church History Library. This year's "Treasures of the Collection" exhibit, with emphasis on the Relief Society, includes historical documents and artifacts from the Church History Library and Museum.

"We were asked ... if we would focus on Relief Society in conjunction with the publishing of the book, [Daughters in My Kingdom, the History and Work of Relief Society]," said April Williamson, who works in public programming for the Church History Department. "We are focusing on the women of the Church and how Relief Society has affected their lives."

The exhibit, to be open Sept. 24, 30 and Oct. 1, includes seldom-seen historic books, photographs, manuscripts, journals and recorded minutes relating to the early Relief Society organization.
