Nice shot of LDS leaders in the 40's. Supposedly this happened in 1940 although I'm just read it online:

Mar 29,1940 - First Presidency asks Apostle Joseph Fielding Smith to chair "Literature Censorship Committee authorized by Quorum of the Twelve last Thursday."

1940's General Conference shot ... when Black's were still inferior.

Why would a church need a ""Literature Censorship Committee"?
