Maeser, The Territorial Enquirer, Provo, Utah, June 22, 1881. ~ ~ ~ ~ Faculty & Staff. Nels L. Nelson, English and Spanish teacher, 1883-1920. Fifth Principal of Brigham Young Academy from 1900 to 1904. He married Maude Noble , who was was born on February 1, 1879 in Kanab, Kane County, Utah. She died on January 9, 1954 in Downey, Bannock County, Idaho and was buried in Downey. Nels Lars Nelson married Maude on May 25, 1904 in Salt Lake City, Utah. An incident in the Onedia Stake Academy in Preston, Idaho: Mark Hart remembered his former teacher N. L. Nelson. "Man, how he could concentrate!" he recalled. "When he had his nose in a book he was gone. I whispered to a kid next to me. I'll bet I can sneak right out of that window and he'll never notice. "I inched over to the wall, like this, stopped and checked him -- he was still lost -- and then I inched along some more. I slipped out the open window, went around to the front steps, into the hall, then sneaked back into my seat. He didn't notice at all." ~ ~ ~ ~ After serving as principal at BY Academy in Provo, Nels Lars Nelson became a BYU English professor, and in 1904, he became the editor of a new periodical. It was called The Mormon Point of View. After only four issues the publication ceased. A single bound volume of The Mormon Point of View can be found in the UCLA Research Library. In 1898, Nels Lars Nelson had published Preaching and Public Speaking, an effort to provide useful advice and raise the level of preaching in the church. In 1904, he also published Scientific Aspects of Mormonism. Brother Nelson, usually known by his initials N. L., had a lively, inquiring mind and a vigorous, compelling style of writing. During its brief lifetime, The Mormon Point of View published nine articles, stories, or poems, including: --"Human Side of the Book of Mormon." Here Nelson explored the textual changes, mostly grammatical, in subsequent editions after 1830. Inevitably, he also addressed the nature of the translation and the presence of Bible passages in the Book of Mormon. Not the last word, this article is nevertheless provocative and worth reading. --"Learning to Read Up Hill." Someone complained that the new magazine was too difficult. Editor Nelson was unsympathetic. "I cannot and will not reduce the whole thing down to thin soup once more, to suit his watery mental digestion," he wrote. I wonder what he would say about the non-readers among us a century later, those whose intake of ideas comes from movies and television. --"The Spiritual Life." Analyzing several metaphors employed by Jesus, Nelson went on for 78 pages. =="The Harris-Anthon Episode." Martin Harris and Charles Anthon both told about the famous interview. Since Anthon contradicted himself, Nelson said, Harris is the more reliable. He was sufficiently satisfied after meeting to invest a sizeable sum of money in the publication of the Book of Mormon. --"The Mormon Family." Although plural marriage is briefly mentioned, the main point of this article is to praise the "fruitfulness" of Mormon families. A century later, when fertility in many countries is below the 2.1 required for replacement, we are awed as Nelson describes families of five to twelve children for each mother. -- A short story by a young woman in one of Nelson's classes rounded out the contents of the periodical's first and only volume. Nelson had hoped to sell two thousand copies, which would have returned a modest profit to him as editor. He did not come even close to his goal, and the venture failed financially. N. L. Nelson had built up a sufficient reputation for loyalty that the First Presidency gave his project their endorsement. But in their letter we notice a recognition of the financial risks. "As far as we are concerned, we should very much like to see a magazine published such as you have outlined; it would undoubtedly be a credit both to you as its publisher and to our community. But will it pay financially, and can it be done without financial injury to yourself and family? . . . To be frank with you, we are afraid it will not pay." They were right. After the fourth issue, completing the first volume, The Mormon Point of View folded.
