Ezra Taft Benson, the thirteenth president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the son of Sarah S. Dunkley and George Taft. He was raised on the family farm. He entered Utah State Agricultural College at Logan in 1918 and stayed there until 1921 when he left for the church's required period of missionary work. His two years were spent in Europe. Benson returned to the farm but was able to complete his B.S. degree at Brigham Young University in 1926. Later that year he married Flora Smith Amussen. In 1929 Benson began work with the University of Idaho, first as county agricultural agent in Preston and then in 1930 as head of a new department of agricultural economics and marketing. He also helped organize the Idaho Cooperative Council, in part as a response to the Depression, and in 1933 became its secretary. Through this time Benson remained an active Latter-day Saint and served a stint as president of the Boise stake (congregation). Benson represented the council in Washington, D.C., for a number of years and as a result in 1939 was invited to become the executive secretary of the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives. Shortly after the beginning of World War II, he was asked by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to serve on the National Agricultural Advisory Commission. He emerged, however, as a major critic of the Roosevelt policy of farm subsidies and control. In Washington Benson also served as president of the Washington stake of his church. In 1943 Benson was selected as a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles which head the administration of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He retired from public life and moved to Salt Lake City to take up his duties there. He served as president of the European mission and assumed the task of coordinating relief work after the end of the war. Through the 1940s, however, he kept his hand in farm issues and remained a constant critic of what he considered the government's paternalistic intervention in the farming business. In 1952 President Dwight D. Eisenhower selected Benson as the new U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. He was granted a leave of absence from the church to assume his new duties in Washington. He served in that position through all eight years of the Eisenhower administration.
