115 years ago today - Apr 5, 1907

Establishment of the Liahona [Magazine] -- According to Andrew Jenson, assistant Church Historian, Benjamin F. Cummings, the publisher of The Liahona, was called "by the Church authorities" to edit this paper published by the Central States Mission "in the interest of all the missions in the United States, Canada and Mexico."

After 11 numbers (weekly) had been published it was considered wise on the part of Church authorities to amalgamate the 'Liahona' with the "Elders Journal, a periodical published in the interest of the Southern States Mission."
