William W. Phelps's Service in Nauvoo as Joseph Smith's Political Clerk

Bruce A. Van Orden

William W. Phelps, one of Joseph Smith's most intimate associates, worked very closely with Joseph Smith during the Nauvoo period. He labored in several Church positions but served primarily as the Prophet's political clerk during the apex of Joseph's career. In this position, he was the Prophet's second most important clerk.
