Davis Bitton, The Foundation for Apologtics and Information Research (FAIR), 2005.
Retired University of Utah historian, Dr. Davis Bitton, recounts the fascinating details of nineteenth-century Apostle George Q. Cannonn's dealings with LDS apostates. Those interested in early LDS approaches to apologetics and nineteenth-century critics will find this presentation stimulating.
Davis Bitton is a retired University of Utah history professor. After serving a mission in France, he graduated from BYU and then received M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Princeton University. He has taught at the University of Texas and the University of California at Santa Barbara, and served for ten years as assistant Church historian. Dr. Bitton is co-author (with Leonard J. Arrington) of The Mormon Experience: A History of the Latter-day Saints and Saints Without Halos: The Human Side of Mormon History. He compiled A Guide to Mormon Diaries and Autobiographies. His most recent books are Images of the Prophet Joseph Smith and George Q. Cannon: A Biography.
Like other people, Davis has different interests. He has served in a bishopric and on the stake high council. He may not hold the worlds record for longevity as a gospel doctrine teacher, but this has been his Church calling for many, many years. His interest in early modern Europe resulted in a series of upper-division university courses, papers at conventions, book reviews, articles, and a book entitled The French Nobility in Crisis, 1560-1640. He is an accomplished concert pianist, having studied in Paris under the formidable Madame Dumesnil and in California under the equally demanding Wladimir Kochanski.
