11/13/07: The Mysterious Papers of John V Long

John Varah Long was born in Yorkshire, England in 1826 and died in Utah, 1869.

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Tuesday on RadioWest - a real life murder mystery from the old West. John V Long was a confidant and scribe of Mormon leader Brigham Young, but he fell from grace, was excommunicated from the LDS Church, and finally found dead in a drainage ditch in 1869. Doug is joined by historian Will Bagley, rare book dealer Ken Sanders and church historian Ron Barney to explore what Long's newly discovered papers tell us about life in the early days of the Utah territory.

This evening at 7:00, Ken Sanders will speak on Edward Abbey, Earth First! The Monkey Wrench Gang and Me at Westminster College. For more information, call 801-832-2812 or click here
