4/30/08: Picturing Joseph Smith
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, UT – A daguerreotype has recently re-emerged that is raising some intriguing historical questions. The researcher S. Michael Tracy believes it to be the only known photo of the Mormon prophet Joseph Smith. Others question its authenticity and it has raised quite a stir. What makes such an image so fascinating - and what would a real image of Smith mean to the faithful?
- On Wednesday, April 30 from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., S. Michael Tracy will be at an open house for his book "Millions Shall Know Brother Joseph Again." The event is free, and takes place at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building, 15 E South Temple in Downtown Salt Lake City.
