Tenth President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Son of Joseph F. Smith, Sixth President of the Church; grandson of Hyrum Smith, Patriarch of the Church; and grandnephew of President Joseph Smith Jr.
President Heber J. Grant called him "the best posted man on the scriptures of the General Authorities of the Church that we have." He published more books and articles than any other man who became President of the Church, though it was never his main intent to become an author, in his sixty-two year ministry as an apostle and prophet, Joseph Fielding preached on almost every facet of the gospel.
