David O. McKay's Educational Model for Mormon Schools in the Pacific, 1906– 1940
Educational Model. Pacific Education, Innovation, Schools, Administration, Mormon, Educational System
David O. McKay's influence permeated every aspect of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) educational activity in the Pacific from 1906 to 1970. Looking at his innovations in Church education practices and policies, which promoted more productive schools and individuals within the LDS Church in the Pacific, provide a pattern. McKay provided an international and global lens that was applied towards the Church educational efforts, most especially, at what was to become BYUH. His ideas and model of establishing schools can be duplicated by other entities where children are devoid of the opportunity for education.
