Leonard J. Arrington taught economic history for many years at Utah State University (USU), but due to his interest in the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the Mormon or LDS Church), he would later become more widely recognized as a renowned church historian. Arrington was incredibly influential in both the study of church history as well as in the legacy of excellence he left on USU’s Department of Economics and Finance. On July 12–13, 2017, the Leonard J. Arrington Centennial Conference was held at USU’s Jon M. Huntsman School of Business in celebration of Arrington’s 100th birthday. Colleagues, students, friends, and others gathered together to listen to a series of panels and lectures where Arrington’s research, writings, teachings, and life were discussed and celebrated.
