Chief Architect for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
A convert, he worked as a carpenter of major contribution for the Kirtland Temple soon after joining the Church, appointed superintendent of joiner work under the Chief Architect of the Nauvoo Temple, designer and Chief Architect for the Salt Lake Temple, Manti Temple, St. George Temple, and Logan Temple in Utah.
Working with President John Taylor as he had with Presidents Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, fate did not permit Truman to live to see the Salt Lake Temple finished. For more than thirty-five years he had toiled and labored on this one great structure. It was said that he knew every stone in its walls.
