The Nauvoo Years

Article

Contents

One of the leading figures of early Mormon history, Heber C. Kimball assisted Joseph Smith in locating Nauvoo as a new place of refuge for the Church. During the time the Saints lived in Nauvoo, Heber actually spent more than half of his time away, serving four separate missions for the Church. This study concentrates on several important developments during his Nauvoo sojourn—family affairs, Masonry, polygamy, and temple work, utilizing the numerous surviving letters and other writings from his wife and daughter, Vilate and Helen Mar Kimball, as well as entries from Heber’s own journal.
