Photographs of the Fourteen Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, September and October 1898

Author Richard Neitzel Holzapfel, Author Ronald L. Fox,

When President Wilford Woodruff died, the fourteen Apostles gathered for the funeral in Salt Lake. Charles R. Savage took a photograph of the service on September 8, 1898, creating the second-earliest photo of all of the Apostles together. The Apostles sat for a group portrait right after the funeral. After seeking guidance from the Lord, senior Apostle Lorenzo Snow decided to reorganize the First Presidency right away, and a group photo taken on September 13, 1898, shows, through the seating arrangement, that the new presidency had been formed. When Rudger Clawson was called as the newest Apostle on October 10, 1898, the Church leaders had yet another photo taken which included him. On this day, the Apostles had individual photos taken also. The authors show the connections among these several photos, providing dates and background information to these photos that was not previously known.
