William Clayton was the scribe of Joseph Smith and had arguably the best access to the dirty deets of church history, which is probably why his journals have become politically fraught in the Mormon historical community. Bryan and Lindsay explain how access to his diaries became so contested it ended in a long, drawn-out court case against Jerald and Sander Tanner.
Bryan and Lindsay who? Do they have last names?
During this 50-minute presentation, I was hoping to get a few specifics about what the William Clayton diaries contain that led to so much legal wrangling over access to them. I waited in vain.
