RC Evans lives online
One of the most interesting figures that I have got to learn about is Richard Charles Evans, Bishop of Canada in the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (RLDS). Today, the RLDS have evolved into a new church called the Community of Christ.
While once a force in Mormonism, RC Evans passed away in 1921 from pneumonia. However, he left a legacy of sermons, poems, songs, tracts, and books. Fortunately, efforts to digitize many historical documents has allowed RC Evans to be rediscovered online.
Here is a list of some of the resources about RC Evans that are online:
