Abstract:

In 1920, David O. McKay visited the Latter-day Saint missions, schools, and branches in the Pacific, solidifying the Church leadership's commitment to global outreach. The trip also later inspired McKay's initiatives when he was Church president. McKay's account of his trip brings to life the story of the Church of Jesus Christ's transformation into a global faith. Throughout his diary, McKay expressed his humanity, curiosity, and fascination with cultures and places--the Maori hongi, East Asian customs, Australian wildlife, and more. At the same time, he and his travel companion, Hugh J. Cannon, detailed the Latter-day Saint missionary life of the era, closely observing logistical challenges and cultural differences, guiding various church efforts, and listening to followers' impressions and concerns. Reid L. Neilson and Carson V. Teuscher's notes provide historical, religious, and general context.
