Meet the first Italian Consul in San Francisco, Leonetto Cipriani

Mike Homer, Italy’s Honorary Consul to Utah since 2008, is a historian among many other talents and has written several books on the American West and Mormonism.

In 2007, the Mormon History Association awarded him the Steven Christensen Best Documentary Book Award for On the Way to Somewhere Else: European Sojourners in the Mormon West, 1834-1930 (see cover above). Today, I’m pleased to bring you a selection from this book about Italy’s first Consul in San Francisco.
