How a Mormon Researcher Started the Disposable Diaper Revolution
A recent article in the New Yorker tells the story of how a Mormon researcher for Johnson and Johnson started a revolution in disposable diapers, making them at once smaller, drier and better. And, along the way, the diaper industry discovered the virtues of having a small, compact product. But, the article observes, in the end the researcher, Carlyle Harmon, didn't get much credit for his invention, and even his obituary, in the Deseret News in 1997, focused mainly on his service to the LDS Church and ignored his ground-breaking discovery.

With the new year approaching, Mormon News will look back at the major Mormon news stories and people that made news in the past year. As part of this review, we are starting a, hopefully, annual process to name the "Mormon of the Year," the person who has had the biggest impact, good or bad, during the past year on Mormons and on the way Mormons are perceived by others.

Kleason Tells Court He Fears US Death Penalty
The man once convicted and now accused again of the brutal murder of two LDS missionaries told a British court on Monday that he is afraid he will be executed for the murders if sent to the U.S. Robert Elmer Kleason testified at an extradition hearing in an attempt to stay in England, where he would be paroled from prison. And because British law prohibits the death penalty, the country won't extradite accused criminals to countries where they will be executed.

Bennett, an LDS Church member, brought the name of legendary broadcaster Walter Cronkite to the department, which then became the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Telecommunication.
