60 years ago today - Wed Dec 24, 1952

[David O. McKay Office Journal] The First Presidency met with the Executive Committee of the Board of Education--Joseph Fielding Smith, Harold B. Lee, Marion G. Romney, Adam S. Bennion, and Franklin L. West--I said that the First Presidency had learned from one or two sources, seminary teachers and others, that they are not to use any books that we have in the libraries. Pres. Smith said the Committee had given instructions against the use of certain books and some of these books were considered before the Board several years ago. After some discussion it was decided that the correspondence that has gone out to Seminary teachers on this matter should be examined and if erroneous impressions are going out, as they seem to be, they should be corrected.
