My sister sent me the story of my great great grandparents, John Griffin and Ruth Keep.

I saw many an interview by this journalist.
I’ll remember him in part for his interviews with President Gordon B. Hinckley of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, as reported in this NPR piece produced when President Hinckley passed away:
Hinckley agreed to two interviews with Mike Wallace, the television-news tough guy at 60 Minutes, and they turned Wallace into a gushing fan.
It was Hinckley’s “candor,” Wallace told NPR, “his willingness to entertain any question, no matter how difficult or, perhaps embarrassing,” that charmed Wallace.
“He was just absolutely open with me,” Wallace said. “It became quite clear that there was a great deal in the Mormon religion that I genuinely admired.”
