The Mark H. Forscutt papers (circa 1862) consist of Forscutt's partial history of the Morrisite church, of which he served as clerk. The Morrisite church was formed as a result of the death of Joseph Smith Jr. (1805-1844), prophet and president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The John W. Fitzgerald papers (1967-1973) consist of writings by Fitzgerald (b. 1907), a member of the LDS Church who was excommunicated due to his views on African-Americans and the priesthood. His writings are centered around the LDS Church, the priesthood, and his excommunication.
