75 years ago today - Feb 14, 1944

[Spencer W. Kimball]
At 3 P.M. I attended the special meeting of the Council of the Twelve in which we excommunicated the woman [Anna Jacobsen] in the [Apostle Richard R.] Lyman case. Bro Widtsoe and I were appointed to talk further with her and to hear her story which we did immediately after the meeting. It was a sad story full of pathos. My sympathy went out to her in her distress.

[Lyman and Jacobsen had engaged in an unauthorized plural marriage relationship.]

[Spencer W. Kimball, Diary, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1835-1951, Electronic Edition, 2015]
