35 years ago today - Jul 30, 1988

A newspaper reports that Brigham Young University has fired Hebrew professor David P. Wright due to his private disbelief in the Book of Mormon as ancient history. Wright joins the faculty of Brandeis University and is excommunicated in 1994 for publishing an article which applies biblical textual criticism to the Book of Mormon. This is reported in the national 'Chronicle of Higher Education.'
