I have been reading Hugh B. Brown’s memoirs (An Abundant Life) a very nice entertaining book. I found myself very involved in the book as he talked about his early life and it just continued from there on. His views on Priesthood leadership and on his mission were fascinating to read.
I also found it interesting to note how much he loved Canada. It made me very happy as a Canadian and I understood his fish out of water perspective of a Canadian in Utah. I was wondering if anyone else has seen more books written about his life. For someone who was such a piviotal figure in the church during the 1960s it would be interesting to learn more about him.
I also think it would be nice to get a more scholarly book about Ezra Taft Benson who was another bigger than life figure in that period. Again I may just have missed them but something along the lines of Rough Stone Rolling or David O. McKay and the Rise of Modern Mormonism.
Personally I would like to see more expansion into the lives of men who may not be known well in our day but were teachers and leaders in their own right.
