Improvement Era


Improvement Era

"The Improvement Era" (often shortened to "The Era") was an official magazine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) between 1897 and 1970.

The "Improvement Era" was first published in 1897 as a replacement to "The Contributor". Over the years, it was the official publishing organ for a variety of organizations within the LDS Church, including the Seventies, the Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association, the Young Ladies' Mutual Improvement Association, priesthood quorums, church schools, the Church Music Committee, and the Home Teaching Committee. It ceased publication in 1970 due to the implementation of the Priesthood Correlation Program and was replaced by the "New Era" and the "Ensign".

Notable articles

The February 1968 issue included the first publication of images of the Joseph Smith Papyri, in sepia tone.
