110 years ago today - Feb 10, 1911

A committee consisting of Francis M. Lyman, Hyrum M. Smith, Charles W. Penrose, Anthony W. Ivins, George H. Brimhall, Horace H. Cummings, Heber J. Grant, George F. Richards, and Joseph Keeler meets with three BYU professors, Henry and Joseph Peterson and Ralph Chamberlin. The session lasts nearly five hours, and the three are frank in explaining their belief in evolution and their reservations about some parts of the Bible. According to Heber J. Grant, they manifest "a very good spirit." The next day the committee formulates its report, which it presented to the Twelve. They agree unanimously to ask the three to leave BYU.
