Jerald Tanner: 1938-2006

Accomplished amature historians, the Tanners (both former Mormons) have been awarded honorary degress, and had an uncanny ability to gain access to obscure historical documents. This ability has lead many to theorize that the Tanners had sympathizes within church administration and academia, who leaked to the couple what some might call 'sensitive material'. Included are two obits for Mr. Tanner, that come from two very different perspectives:
