From the life of Gordon B. Hinckley: Early in his life, President Hinckley displayed an exceptional gift for public speaking. During his college years, the bishop of his ward asked him to substitute for apostle Reed Smoot, a U.S. senator, who was unable to come to speak to the overflow audience awaiting him. Young Gordon Hinckley got up to address the disappointed audience. A friend who heard him recalled, “When Gordy Hinckley finished speaking, people had forgotten all about Senator Smoot’s absence. The boy really stirred them.”
