Elder Milton R. Hunter


<< Elder Milton R. Hunter

Elder Milton R. Hunter "was called to serve on the First Council of the Seventy; he was sustained April 6, 1945....

Assignments as a General Authority for the LDS Church took Elder Hunter to many parts of the world. During this time, he visited Mexico, Central America, and South America, where he eagerly took the opportunity to study archaeological sites, searching for confirmation of contexts within the Book of Mormon.

Hunter is widely known among LDS Church members as the co-author of the book Ancient America and the Book of Mormon with Thomas Stuart Ferguson. First published in 1950, this book focuses on the writings of an Aztec historian, Ixtlilxochitl, who in written accounts of Mesoamerican history related to newly-arrived Europeans, appears to corroborate, [confirm or give support to] a number of claims made in the Book of Mormon.

Hunter was a co-founder of the New World Archaeological Foundation....

During his career as a teacher and Church leader, Hunter wrote 23 books, principally on religious and history oriented topics."  (BYU, Alumni)
