Memories about Daniel H. Ludlow from Jennifer Sweeny

Contributor: finnsh Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years 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.

Constructed by the German Democratic Republic, starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall cut off West Berlin from virtually all of surrounding East Germany and East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and finished in 1992. The barrier included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, accompanied by a wide area that contained anti-vehicle trenches, "fakir beds" and other defenses. The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" in building a socialist state in East Germany.
