Volume Editor:
Grant Underwoo​d

This volume marks the beginning of the Documents series of The Joseph Smith Papers. While other series of the Papers include the large, multiple-entry documents-such as journals and the Book of Mormon manuscripts-that are not assignable to a single date, the Documents series presents in chronological order the core of Joseph Smith's documentary record.


Andrew L. Johns

This volume makes a significant contribution to historical knowledge and understanding in the sphere of the diplomacy of sport. The American politico-sporting scene occupies center stage, but due regard is paid to non-American topics. Moreover, the book meets the editors’ aim to provide a framework of reference for future research and publications on the interaction between sport and diplomacy.

    IMPORTANT: This internship requires a time commitment of 7-10 hours per week over the course of Spring/Summer semester. It is preferred that students devote one full day to the internship (for example working from 8-5 pm every Tuesday) since it does require that you commute to Salt Lake City.

You will be expected to register for 3.0 credits of History 199R.  DO NOT APPLY IF YOU CANNOT ACCOMMODATE THIS SCHEDULE.
