25 Years ago

President Spencer W. Kimball returned home to Thatcher, Ariz., to, among other things, attend a class reunion dinner the weekend of May 16, 1975, according to the May 24, 1975, Church News.

An article stated, "It was his first visit to his boyhood hometown as President of the Church, his first visit since 1963 when he spoke at the Eastern Arizona College baccalaureate."

President Kimball was accompanied by his wife, Camilla, as he attended the dinner Friday night for the Eastern Arizona College class of 1914. President Kimball was a member of that class when the school was the Church-operated Gila Academy, a high school.

He also spoke in Church meetings Saturday and Sunday in Thatcher and nearby Safford, Ariz.
