Lowell Bennion is without a doubt one of the most important Mormon figures in the 20th century. Along with T. Edgar Lyon, Lowell Bennion founded the University of Utah LDS Institute, and taught and inspired many of the great Mormon minds of the 20th century, including Eugene England, and many of the founders of Dialogue and Sunstone.
Lowell Bennion was also commissioned to author several Sunday school and priesthood manuals for the church in the 1950s. His ability to combine spirituality with intellect has been, in many ways, unsurpassed to this day. This interview was produced by Stirling Adams of Provo, UT–and centers around Mary Lythgoe Bradford–a close friend of Brother Bennion, as well as his biographer.
