Google has indexed and made available the Life Magazine photo archive, which includes many previously unpublished photos.

There are a number of interesting shots of church leaders meeting with different people:

Lee,

Thanks for the post. Those who review it should take note, however, that a few of the photos are of leaders of splinter groups of the Church.

Interesting pictures and illustrations. Thanks Lee.

Interesting to see what Life called "Mormon"

Life magazine called the RLDS leader Wallace Smith a Mormon, and also the Short Creek fundamentalist group "Mormon", and that was only 50 years ago. At least now I have more understanding of why my school associates really thought I might have more than one wife with news reporting like this! Thank goodness for newsroom.lds.org to clarify who we truly are.

Thanks for posting.
