135 years ago today - Oct 2, 1883

Bishop Orson F. Whitney begins participating in regular spiritualistic seances about this date. In 1889 the Twelve learns of this activity, reverses its decision to call Whitney as a new apostle, yet allows Whitney to remain bishop. Among those who attend these seances are Arthur and Charles Stayner and Maud May Babcock. Bishop Whitney continues to participate until 1900.
