The study of media as it relates to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has increased appreciably over the past few years. The Church's first sustained centralized effort began with the creation of the Radio, Publicity, and Mission Literature Committee in 1935. However, little research has been conducted in regards to the creation, products, or impact of the Committee. This thesis examines the circumstances under which the Radio, Publicity, and Mission Literature Committee was formed in 1935. It further describes the Committee's production of filmstrips, radio programs, and exhibits. The impact of these products in missionary work and public image is also explored.
