Ryan Lee talked about Senator Reed O. Smoot (R-UT) and showed items from Senator Smoot’s papers, housed in the L. Tom Perry Special Collections at Brigham Young University. Reed Smoot was elected to the Senate in 1903, and his religious affiliation prompted a congressional inquiry by the Senate Committee on Privileges and Elections. The collection includes Senator Smoot’s personal diaries, items related to the hearings, correspondence with U.S. presidents, and photographs.
