Stake History[]

Stake President Lee[]

Jblee

Harold B. Lee was an American religious leader and educator who served as the 11th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from July 1972 until his death in December 1973.

In 1930, Lee was called as president of the LDS Church's Salt Lake Pioneer Stake in Salt Lake City. He became the youngest stake president in the church, at that time, when he was set apart. The 1929 Great Depression in the United States left more than half of its members without jobs. He established a welfare program to aid members in distress that became a model emulated by the entire LDS Church. As part of the program, he helped organize the Pioneer Stake bishop's storehouse in 1932. The storehouse provided members with basic food necessities. Bishop's storehouses remain part of the church's welfare program today. In 1936, Lee became managing director of the Church Welfare Program. Although he also pursued a political career, he began full-time church service when he was called to the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in 1941.[1]
