Brand new hardcover book! Never been read! ; BEST BOOK AWARD, MORMON HISTORY ASSOCIATION. James Henry Moyle was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under U. S. President Woodrow Wilson, Commissioner of Customs under President Theodore Roosevelt, and special assistant to treasury secretary Henry Morgenthau. He was also president of the LDS Eastern States Mission. By his own count, he had two religions, Mormonism and the Democratic Party, and he alternately praised and criticized both. As one who was intimately acquainted with every major religious and political figure in Utah and elsewhere over six decades--and as the father of a future LDS apostle--he mustered surprisingly profound and entertaining insights in his memoirs. Par of his prominence was due to his aristocratic flair. Apostle Matthew Cowley admitted that he "always had to take another look when [he] passed Brother James H. Moyle on the street. " Nor was this large-framed, gray-haired statesman one to mince words. It is the raw edge to his comments that makes his autobiography so memorable. This former political kingpen's life is also recounted in LDS church president Gordon B. Hinckley's James Henry Moyle: The Story of a Distinguished American and Honored Churchman, who, by his own account, refers to Moyle as a colorful, highly opinionated, uncensored voice, who has a unique value. ; Significant Mormon Diaries Series No. 8 Series; Vol. 8; 6" x 9"; 408 pages; 9781560850236
