100 years ago today - Nov 23, 1918

The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles sustains Heber J. Grant as church president with Anthon H. Lund and Charles W. Penrose as counselors, and they are "set apart" (not ordained). Because of the deadly influenze epidemic, conference does not meet to sustain this action until 1 June 1919. ... Some Mormons criticize Grant for his relaxed golf games and trips to California resorts, without realizing that these are precautions he has gradually adopted against the build up of too much emotional stress.
