    Inside back cover: Sacred Grove, Manchester, New York, by George Edward Anderson. Photo taken in 1908. George Edward Anderson—“Mormon bishop with a camera”—desired to photographically record sites of Church history. He received approval to do so while en route to England on a mission call. In the spring of 1907, 46-year-old Brother Anderson stepped into the locale of the Sacred Grove. He prayed for inspiration, and “when he saw the sun shining through the trees in a small clearing, he knew this was the right place.” His photograph is one of the classic images of Church historical photography.

    Title illustrations in this issue feature woodcuts by Bradley Teare and Warren Luch.
