The Famous Mormons website (www.famousmormons.net) began in 1995, soon after the Internet began spreading across the world.

My interest in “Famous Mormons” began while I was serving as a full-time missionary in Southern California for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints beginning in 1978. I had many conversations with people about a television show that had some of the LDS Church teachings subtly mixed into the program. The show was a science fiction drama called Battlestar Galactica. The executive producer was “Famous Mormon” Glen A. Larson.

For someone to be added to the site, I may come across a press item that mentions the person is a member of the Church. However, most of the additions come through e-mails. After I receive an e-mail, I check the Internet to see if there is anything mentioning the LDS membership of that “famous” person.

The Famous Mormons webpage pages gives a few lines or a small paragraph about each person, but I have expanded to creating essentially a collection of short biographies of some of those on the site.  

My sources in finding this information have been the Internet, books, information from the family and friends of the people, and often from the people themselves.

What makes someone a “Famous Mormon”? Well, if I have heard of them and they are popular outside of the Church, that’s   a good start. Also, if enough people e-mail me to tell me to add the person to the page, then he or she is famous. In other words, there really aren’t strict rules to determine which people are added to the website, other than they are Mormon, are interesting, and recognized in a public way.

The LDS Church now has more than 15 million members, so naturally I have only included a small number of those people who deserve to be called famous! Keep those ideas coming about who should be included on the website.

You will also see I am not attempting to judge “activity” in the Church or political preference. I once received a lengthy e-mail about one of the U.S. senators who was included on the website. The person felt I should remove the senator from the website because he didn’t have the same political values as the e-mail sender. Needless to say, I didn’t remove him.

You may see someone on the site I have included and say to yourself, “I have never heard of that person.” That is because I have included someone who I think is worth learning about. Either that person has a great story to tell or is very talented and will likely be famous soon!  Check out the many pages on www.famousmormons.net   and keep checking back.
