    President Benson Marks 91 Years

    President Ezra Taft Benson celebrated his ninety-first birthday quietly on the first weekend in August. On Friday, August 3, his counselors, members of the Quorum of the Twelve, and their wives honored him at a reception. On his birthday—Saturday, August 4—his family celebrated the occasion. Members from throughout the Church remembered him with cards and other “Happy Birthday” greetings.
