Hark! A New Guest Blogger Appears On The Horizon! (Or, Welcome, Kate!)

By November 3, 2008

We at the JI are pleased to welcome a new guest blogger, Kate B.    Kate’s an admired presence in the Mormon history world, having published (among other works) an award-winning article in the Utah Historical Quarterly, and has presented at a veritable plethora of MHA conferences.   She holds an MA in history, and was a key cog in the now famous 2003 Claudia Bushman-directed “Mormon Women in the Twentieth Century” summer seminar.  Her interests include women’s history, Mormon history, local history and historic preservation. Also, she graced my own grad school experience with her presence.  Current hobbies include chasing around a two year old and his dog.

We are eager to see what she comes up with.  Welcome, Kate!

  4. Rumor has it those summer fellows were really good singers–maybe if we ask really nicely, we can get Kate to do The Kidnapping of General Joseph Smith for us 😉

  8. Welcome.

    The Kidnapping of General Joseph Smith? Is that a Mormon folk song or something?

  10. Hooray! I feel like singing “As Sisters in Zion” or something. Welcome to JI, Kate.

  11. The Kidnapping of General Joseph Smith is one of the many poems written by Eliza R. Snow. Under Claudia Bushman’s direction, we sang it to the tune of Improve the Shining Moments. I cannot sing Improve the Shining Moments to this day without laughing a bit. I”ll see if I can dig up the text.

  13. Thanks Kate. I see a poem by Eliza R Snow, under the title The Kidnapping of Lieutenant-General Joseph Smith. A little unwieldy for a song title.

    Improve the shining moments, huh. I’ll give it a try
