Kenney collection (1820-1984) reflects the research interests of Scott G. Kenney during the 1970s and early 1980s for a projected biography of Joseph F. Smith (1838-1901). The collection consists of typescripts made by Kenney, as well as photocopies of diaries and letters. Kenney's original organization of the material has been preserved. There is a wealth of information contained in the collection about the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (hereafter abbreviated to the LDS Church, the Mormon Church, or simply the Church). This is the case because Joseph F. Smith was a nephew of the Prophet Joseph Smith, was ordained an LDS apostle in 1866, and became president of the Mormon Church in 1901. In order to give the reader a flavor of some of the topics selected quotations from letters or journal extracts are included in the inventory. However, such quotations are only a very small fraction of the information in the collection.; Section I contains Kenney's name files, arranged alphabetically by last name. It consists of boxes 1-7, and included in this section is material on the following individuals who had contact with Joseph F. Smith: former LDS presidents (John Taylor and Wilford Woodruff); members of the First Presidency (Charles W. Penrose, Anthony W. Ivins, Anthon H. Lund, John R. Winder); secretaries to the First Presidency (L. John Nuttall, George Reynolds); fellow apostles (Abraham H. Cannon, George Q. Cannon, Albert Carrington, Heber J. Grant, Franklin D. Richards, George F. Richards, John Henry Smith, George A. Smith, Reed Smoot, Moses Thatcher, Abraham O. Wood
