A favorite magazine cover from the Church’s past: The Instructor, July 1958.

  3. I should have noted that the photographer was Ray Kooyman, and his title for the image is “Two of His Young Lambs.” The little girl is Lora Hathalie, with a family pet lamb whose neck bell let the family keep track of him. This issue of the Instructor includes half a dozen extraordinary photographs of Navajo and Hopi women, all LDS.

  4. What a beautiful picture – and an apt title.

    Does the magazine indicate where Lora lived?

  8. I think a comment of mine was caught in the spam filter.

  9. Yup — sorry about that. Your last one was caught there too, so you’ve done something, who knows what, to offend the great filter god.

  10. 6: Justin, the “about our cover” paragragh doesn’t tell where she lives, specifically, just a general statement that “pioneering is not yet finished” and goes on “even in the painted deserts of America’s Southwest.”

    The other articles are about women living on the Navajo Reservation.
