With volume 51, number 1, BYU Studies announces the change of its name to BYU Studies Quarterly. This new name distinguishes our journal from other departments at Brigham Young University. This issue contains a variety of articles: first is a documentary article on a newly released record kept in 1835 for the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church. Also related to the Joseph Smith Papers Project is an article on James Covel and the historical background of Doctrine and Covenants 39–40. An article looking at a 1950s-era proposal that BYU might create satellite campuses connects that research to the founding of a statistics department at BYU. An article about Frederick G. Williams shows that Williams participated in the medical profession’s slow shift from harmful practices to mild herbal treatments. This issue also contains book reviews, book notices, and poems.
