Elder 1873; seventy 1876; ordained a high priest and set apart as Bishop of the Eighteenth ward July 14, 1878; member of the quorum of the twelve apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; missionary to eastern states October, 1876-78; to Europe 1881-83. Main founder and first president of the Wasatch Literary Association. Clerk, collector and city editor of the “Deseret News” 1878 City councilman 1880 his first civic office. Helped to organize, and was president of the Home Dramatic Club. Associate editor of the “Millennial Star” at Liverpool, England. City treasurer 1883-1890. Chancellor of the University of Deseret, succeeding George Q. Cannon. Chief clerk or the House of Representatives 1888. First elder to hold Sabbath services at the Penitentiary. The town of Whitney, Idaho, was named for him. One of the three framers of the “Declaration of Grievances and Protest,” and the reader of that document at the great Tabernacle mass meeting May, 1885, and a year later he delivered the address of welcome to Governor Caleb W. West, on his arrival at Salt Lake City. At the General Conference in October, 1890, he was called to read President Woodruff’s “Manifesto” to the congregation. In May, 1890, Bishop Whitney began the “History of Utah”. He was the choice for this work, of the most prominent men and women in the community and was employed by the publishing company organized by Dr. John O. Williams, an experienced book man from the east, who was the main owner of the enterprise. The Bishop’s duties were purely literary; at no time did he have anything to do with the business management. Served the public gratuitously in various ways. At a Unitarian conference held in the Jewish Synagogue at Salt Lake City in 1892, at which ministers of various denominations were invited to speak, he represented his church, by appointment of the First Presidency. His address was pronounced by the Rabbi the most impressive one delivered on the occasion. He was prominent at peace and charity meetings and other gatherings of a public character. In the fall of 1894, Mr. Whitney engaged in his first political campaign. Up to this time he had never made a political speech, nor had he united with either of the new organizations which had superseded the People’s and the Liberal parties. His predilections were for Democracy. Never an office-seeker, and shunning rather than courting public life, at the solicitation of Democratic leaders, he became a candidate for the Constitutional Convention, and was elected by the largest majority cast in his precinct. The part played by him in the convention notably in the great woman’s suffrage debate is well known. He served upon various important committees, and was one of the special committee that revised the constitution prior to its transmission to Washington. In January 1896 accepted a professor’s chair in the Brigham Young College at Logan, and for the next eighteen months was a resident of that town, and an instructor in Theology and English. In the Pioneer Jubilee, Bishop Whitney played a prominent part, beginning with the reading for President Woodruff, who was too feeble to speak, of the dedicatory prayer at the unveiling of the pioneer monument. He compiled for the Jubilee Commission the Book of the Pioneers’ for the state archives, and contributed to the literature of the period a poem, ‘The Lily and the Bee,’ an allegory of the founding of Utah. His ‘Ode to the Pioneers,’ adapted from one of his earlier poems, and set to music by Professor Evan Stephens, was sung with thrilling effect by the Tabernacle choir during the five days’ celebration. Since the opening of 1899, Bishop Whitney has been connected with the Church Historian’s Office. For several years he has presided over the State Historical Society. In literature he shines conspicuously, but all his previous efforts are eclipsed by his latest production, ‘Elias, an Epic of the Ages.’ It is lofty, massive, grand, exhibiting fertility of thought, expansive research and wonderful constructive ability. The great theme that it embodies Eternal Truth has probably never before been treated so comprehensively in a poetic way. Along with his devotion to literature, he retains his early affection for music and the drama, and makes it a point to see and hear the most gifted artists, as also the best preachers and lecturers.”
