S. Norman Lee mission journal
Scope and Contents note
Collection contains a bound volume of letters written by S. Norman Lee during his mission to England from 1909-1911. In general, the letters are addressed to his wife and discuss the life he experienced as a Latter-day Saint missionary. In his letters, Lee informs his wife that the letters addressed to her are, in fact, his mission journal and subsequently instructs her to keep them all so he will have a record of his time spent in England. After his mission, Lee had the letters bound so that they would be in journal form. During his mission, Lee was the associate editor of the "Millennial Star" and lived at the Durham House, a house which served as the mission headquarters. Lee returned from his mission in the spring of 1911.
