Noted Mormon Author and Intellectual Eugene England Dead
Mormon author and intellecutal G. Eugene England, died Friday at his home in Provo, Utah at about 10:30 am after a six-month struggle with brain cancer. His family has released the following obituary. Mormon News plans its own obituary later this week.

Remembering England
Tomorrow hundreds of people are expected at the Provo Tabernacle to remember one of Mormonism's best known and most influential authors and intellectuals. G. Eugene England was widely known in spite of the fact that he never held Church-wide office. But he did start two of Mormonism's most enduring independent institutions and was heavily involved in another. He pushed for and encouraged the study of Mormon literature and Mormonism during a career of more than 20 years at BYU, and most recently founded the only center for the study of Mormonism. But six months ago, England was hit by a devastating case of brain cancer, to which he finally succumbed last Friday.
