J.B. Haws is married to the beautiful Laura Favero, which he submits as yet another evidence that

miracles have not ceased! They are the parents of three boys and a daughter, and they love living in

Provo and cheering (sometimes too fanatically) for the Cougars.


Before coming to BYU, J.B. taught seminary in northern Utah, in Salt Lake and Weber Counties. He

attended Weber State University, BYU, and the University of Utah. His PhD from the U of U is in

American History, with an emphasis on twentieth-century Latter-day Saint history. He served a Spanish-

speaking mission in Raleigh, North Carolina, so he speaks Spanish with a slight Southern accent (and

English with a heavy Hooper, Utah accent).


Areas of research: Twentieth-century LDS history, public perception of Latter-day Saints
