Emeritus General Authorities


The following announcement was made by the First Presidency in General Conference on September 30, 1978:”After a long period of prayerful consideration and counsel, extending, indeed, over several years, we announce a new and specific status to be given from time to time to brethren of our associates in the General Authorities. We announce that some brethren have been designated as emeritus members of the First Quorum of the Seventy. These brethren are not being released but will be excused from active service. It is out of consideration for the personal well-being of the individuals, and with deep appreciation for their devoted service, that this designation will be given from time to time to designated members of the General Authorities.”  All those who have been granted ’emeritus’ status are listed below, listed in order by the time of they became emeritus General Authorities.
