George A. Smith

We know that George A. Smith was an apostle in the Quorum of the Twelve, but what was his profession in life?
A.    Doctor
B.    Lawyer
C.    Professor
D.    Merchant
Yesterday’s answer:
C   B. H. Roberts
From the life of B. H. Roberts:   Utah Democratic Chairman B. H. Roberts wrote a letter criticizing Senator Reed Smoot for seeking re-election instead of magnifying his office as an apostle. The letter was published and caused an uproar. Fellow Democrat Heber J. Grant recorded that in a meeting of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve, “the general feeling was that after having run for Congress himself twice, that it came with very poor grace for [Roberts] to take the position that no high church official should hold any high office politically.”
