Why Ron?

Ronald O. Barney
Ronald O. Barney

Ron worked in the Church Historian's Office for several decades and has won the respect of Mormon history researchers.

He has seen the Historian's Office go through more than a name change as it transitioned into the Church History department; He was instumental in establishing the Joseph Smith Papers Project. 

Not much in Church history ruffles Ron. He takes a measured approach to his work as a historian, and lucky for us, he is in the process of writing a book on the restoration of the priesthood in the Church.
