George Q. Cannon
George Quayle Cannon was the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' chief political strategist (the press called him "the Mormon premier" and "the Mormon Richelieu"). He was member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and a first counselor to the first four presidens of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was also Territorial Delegate from Utah from 1873 until 1881.
George Q. Cannon was also the publisher of the Juvenile Instructor magazine and opened the George Q. Cannon & Sons bookstore with the purpose of selling the magazine and other publications of an uplifting nature. How many books were actually published by Cannon & Sons is not known, since in that period a lot of the authors published their work themselves, letting others distribute them.
