[Leonard Arrington]
Bill Critchlow ... said that Alvin Dyer was a first cousin [once removed] to [David O. McKay's secretary] Clare Middlemiss and he said that this helps to explain Alvin's call to be a member of the First Presidency and to be an apostle. It also helps to explain his aggressiveness and forwardness and confidence in functioning as a member of the First Presidency. He also said that Alvin Dyer was a great apple-polisher.
