Memories about Daniel H. Ludlow from Jennifer Sweeny

Contributor: finnsh Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Daniel is my maternal grandfather. I collected stories to write up memories of his life: As a youth, Daniel Ludlow won many awards at fairs and competitions for raising sheep and pigs. He planned on farming, but then he had 8 girls! His only sister, Margaret, died when she was 14 and he was 10. He only remembers her being sick. He loved ice cream, bread and milk, fresh watermelon on the rind, and tomatoes. He was very hard-working and kind, but also competitive. He loved to play games like Up and Down the River and Golf. He also loved fishing. I remember him teaching me how to fish up in the mountains as a girl. Daniel said he wanted to do twice as much and be twice as good to make up for all that his father missed out on because of his early death. He served as mission president in Perth, Australia from 1981-1984; was the BYU Dean of Religious Education; Chief Editor of the Encyclopedia of Mormonism; LDS Church Director of Correlation; and wrote many books including Latter-day Prophets Speak and Companions to Your Study of [the various books of scripture]. He told the story of traveling to Salt Lake City in a bumpy car with a typewriter on his lap while finishing the last pages of his manuscript before meeting with his editor. He assisted Thomas S. Monson, Boyd K. Packer and Bruce R. McConkie in preparing the first LDS Church edition of the Standard Works that were released from 1979 to 1981. That was the first time the Book of Mormon and Bible referenced each other in the footnotes. Daniel and Luene were sealed in SLC Temple June 10, 1942. He always teased Luene--especially for being older than him--but all he wanted in his final days and months was to have her by his side. Daniel passed away on Valentine's Day and still had flowers sent to his love. He got his BS at Utah State University (History) where he served for two years as student body president. He then went on to receive an MA from Indiana University (Education) and a Ph.D. from Columbia University (Communications). BYU presented him an honorary doctorate in 1995. Daniel went to Israel over 70 times and took the first BYU group in 1968. He said he could be buried anywhere but his heart would be in Israel. President Thomas S. Monson and Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf both came to his viewing, and Elder Jeffrey R. Holland called Luene from Saudia Arabia when he heard the news that Daniel had passed away.

The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.

It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war is considered a Cold War-era proxy war by some US perspectives. The majority of Americans believe the war was unjustified. The war would last roughly 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which also saw all three countries become communist states in 1975.
