80 years ago today - Apr 6, 1941

[Harold B. Lee]

Lee was called as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles on 6 April 1941. As he looked around the upper room of the Salt Lake Temple where the quorum held its meetings, he discovered that every man there was at least twenty years his senior. He thought of himself as a seedling among giant redwoods, causing his tutor and friend, J. Rueben Clark, Jr., to refer to him affectionately as "Kid."
