Two video vignettes from now-deceased Nauvoo residents will be shown during the symposium. Florence Ourth, a member of the Nauvoo Community of Christ Church, was present in 1928 when the bodies of Joseph and Hyrum Smith were located. Her video vignette is titled “Remembering Emma.”
Lillian Snyder (1914-2004), a descendant of Nauvoo’s French Icarians, studied and preserved Icarian history. A professor at Western Illinois University (WIU), she donated Baxter and Icarian papers to the Center for Icarian Studies at WIU. In Nauvoo, Dr. Snyder founded the Lillian Snyder Icarian Living History Foundation. Her video vignette provides information on “Icaria.”
