Yesterday’s answer:

a.      President Joseph F. Smith

The only known Book of Mormon aboard the ill-fated Titanic was that carried by Irene Colvin Corbett of Salt Lake City. Sister Corbett had left her husband, Walter, and three children to study nursing in London. Although warned by both her husband and Church President Joseph F. Smith not to leave her family, 28-year-old Corbett did so anyway. Her grandson Don Corbett, said his headstrong grandmother also wanted to do missionary work and asked for a blessing from President Smith. In her hometown of Provo, Utah, friends criticized her for going against the prophet. Corbett, her Book of Mormon, and all of her belongings sank in the Titanic after it struck an iceberg in the morning hours of April 15, 1912, some 300 miles off the coast of Newfoundland. She was among the 1,513 people who died in the tragedy.
