B.H. Roberts and My Father
This is a photo of my father and all the missionaries in his mission in the eastern states. His mission president was B.H. Roberts. He had a huge influence on my father his whole life and when we were going through mother's books he had a whole collection of Robert's books. My father is in the middle,next to Sister Roberts. Why did all the women back then look so stern. It must have been a difficult life. The missionaries back then went without purse or script. They were dependent upon others, and not necessarily other Mormons for their food and lodging.
