Lorenzo Snow

Snow, Lorenzo, 1814–1901, American Mormon leader, b. Mantua, Ohio, studied at Oberlin College. Entering the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (1836), Snow became an apostle in 1849. Upon his return from missionary work abroad, he settled in Utah, where, at Brigham, he established (1864) a mercantile and manufacturing cooperative. In 1889 he was made president of the Twelve Apostles and in 1898 president of the church. His works include an Italian translation of the Book of Mormon and The Only Way to Be Saved (1851).
