55 years ago today - Feb 19, 1965

At the end of Janurary, the ultra-conservative John Birch Society released its Bulletin which announced that Apostle Ezra Taft Benson would speak at a testimonial for Birch Society founder Robert Welch in Seattle on 19 February "with the full approval of President McKay of the Mormon Church."

[The John Birch Society Bulletin (Feb. 1966): 30. See D. Michael Quinn, "Ezra Taft Benson and Mormon Political Conflicts", Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought 26:2 (Summer 1992) for full cite and context.]
