John Whitmer is one of the most familiar names in early Mormonism. As one of Joseph Smith’s earliest supporters and associates, John was a member of one of the founding families of Smith’s Restoration movement.

Although he broke with Joseph Smith and the mainstream of Mormonism, Whitmer continued to believe in the Book of Mormon and the earliest ideals of the movement. Ron Romig’s years of scholarly research reveal a new portrayal of Whitmer that is essential to every Mormon history collection.

Congratulations to Ron!
