Professor Herman Publishes Online Article About "Secret" Mormon History

Our very own expert on all things Arizona, Prof. Dan Herman, has recently published an online article about the "Secret History" of powerful Mormon families in Arizona during the nineteenth century. Promising to be of great interest to those interested in the background of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, it chronicles how the political "dynamism" of the Romneys (progenitors of Mitt) and the Udalls, among others, were forged in what Herman calls the "bloody cauldron" of frontier Arizona.
