Orson F. Whitney (1855-1931) was a writer, editor, and ecclesiastical leader in Utah.

From the description of Orson F. Whitney poem, 1885. (Unknown). WorldCat record id: 432135686

Orson F. Whitney was an apostle in the Mormon Church, poet, author, educator, newspaper editor, and Utah historian. teacher of religion and theology at Brigham Young College, in Logan, Utah. Born on July 1, 1855, in Salt lake City, Orson Ferguson Whitney was the son of Horace Whitney, the eldest son of Newell K. Whitney, who was a prominent Utah pioneer and the Presiding Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also called LDS or Mormon Church). His mother was Helen Mar Kimball, the oldest living daughter of President Heber C. Kimball, another prominent figure in the history of Utah, an original Apostle of the Church, and a member of the First Presidency at the time of his death. During his lifetime, Orson F. Whitney rubbed shoulders with many prominent men and women, and the records he kept disclose that he had contact with early pioneers as well as with prominent people of more recent times. He recognized the difference between "school learning" and the knowledge that comes from one's own experience. As a young man, "Ort," as many of his friends called him, was an intense student, both inside and outside the classroom. He wanted to be an actor and spent many hours preparing for the stage by studying elocution, fencing, and grammar. Whitney claimed that in his youth he had little interest in writing or speaking, that he hated poetry, and that he lacked religious discipline. His mother, conceding at last to her son's desire for a dramatic career, agreed to sell a piece of land she owned to raise sufficient money for him to go to New York and continue his training and his career. Many months passed, however, and no one bought her land. Later, during General Conference, in 1876, Orson was jolted out of his seat when he heard an announcement that he had been called on a mission to the Eastern States. Elder Whitney later recalled that he accepted the call more out of pride than piety. His mother sold her land almost immediately after his acceptance of the call, and Elder Whitney then had sufficient money to embark on a missionary career which sparked in him a great interest in speaking and writing, helped him develop sensitivity and skill, and assisted him to achieve religious discipline. At the same time it would provide him with opportunities to act in different roles in life. During seventeen months in the mission field, Elder Whitney had many opportunities to develop his talents as a writer and a public speaker. He started a regular column of his missionary experiences in the Salt Lake Herald under the pen name Iago. He developed a deep commitment to the Church and the discipline necessary to serve. A year after he returned from his mission, at the age of 23, Orson was called to serve as the Bishop of the Eighteenth Ward. Young, unmarried, inexperienced, and by his own admission, a little frightened, he walked to the pulpit to accept the calling to preside over a ward of Youngs, Kimballs, Caines and Calders. He stated that he trusted that the Lord would help him qualify himself for the job. He served as bishop for 28 years. Within a year Bishop Whitney married Zina Beal Smoot, the daughter of Abraham O. Smoot. While bishop, Whitney worked as an editor for the Salt Lake Herald, served as a member of the City Council, was an active participant in the Home Dramatic Club, and wrote popular poetry. Due to his prominence as an orator, Orson F. Whitney was called upon to read the Manifesto in General Conference, which suspended the practice of plural marriage in 1890 and relieved to a degree some of the problems of the time. Much of the correspondence of the ensuing years is centered on the literary accomplishments of Orson Whitney. In 1890 he produced his first book, a biography of his grandfather, Heber C. Kimball, as well as numerous poems and articles for church publications. Also, in 1890, Whitney was chosen and commissioned by the Church to write his famous History of Utah, which was sponsored by Dr. John O. Williams and J. H. E. Webster. He produced two volumes of the work by 1894 and the third in 1898. A man of letters, he published a biography of Lorenzo Snow, an autobiography entitled Through Memory's Halls, and several books of poetry including his lengthy epic poem, Elias, An Epic of the Ages . He is also known for writing frequent defenses of literature. He was the first to articulate the vision of Mormon literature in his 1888 sermon, Home Literature . Orson F. Whitney was also well known for his political involvement, and he was considered to be the champion of Women's Suffrage in Utah. As a member of the Constitutional Convention, in 1895, he gave a very forceful address on the issue. In 1906, Orson Whitney received what he termed to be "the greatest honor that my life has ever known." He was called to be an Apostle in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He filled three missions for the Church, his last presiding over the European Mission. In 1921, he was called to preside over the European Mission. Elder Whitney died May 16, 1931 at Salt Lake City, Utah at the age of 75.
