    Life of a Century

    The 20th Century Adventures of Centenarian Lorna Call Alder (1906- )

    Alder, Lorna Call

    Born in 1906, Lorna Call Alder grew up on a farm in the Mexican colonies. She remembers being visited by Mexican rebels who demanded that her family open the door or be shot, having General John J. Pershing for Thanksgiving dinner, and having to take over the raising of her 12 brothers and sisters. She has written several books on the Call family, has given generously of her time to the Church, and spent over 30 years as a professor in BYU’s education department, retiring at the age of 75. She still keeps as active as she can, giving of her time and serving in other ways. She has lived the life of a remarkable woman.
