Biography of David McKay 
David Oman McKay (September 8, 1873 – January 18, 1970) was the ninth president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), serving from 1951 until his death. Ordained an apostle and member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in 1906, McKay was a general authority for nearly 64 years, longer than anyone else in LDS Church history, except Eldred G. Smith (though Smith was not active as a general authority for many years).

Early life
The third child of David McKay and Jennette Eveline Evans McKay, David Oman McKay was born on his father’s farm in Huntsville, Utah Territory, about east of Ogden. McKay's mother was a Welsh immigrant from Merthyr Tydfil, and his father was a Scottish immigrant. In 1880, after McKay’s two older sisters died, his father was called on an LDS mission to his native Scotland, where he proselyted for two years. In his father's absence, McKay took on additional family responsibilities to help his mother.

McKay's grandmother bequeathed $5000 to McKay's mother upon her death and directed that "every cent ... be used for the education of the children." This money allowed McKay and his brother, Thomas, to attend the University of Utah. McKay graduated in 1897 as valedictorian and class president.

For his first three years at Weber, McKay taught mainly religion and literature classes. On April 17, 1902, McKay was appointed principal of Weber succeeding Louis F. Moench, the founding principal who had resigned after nine years at the helm of the institution. One of his first actions as principal was to organize a school paper.

McKay also oversaw the inauguration of sports programs at Weber. In 1905 they won their baseball game against the University of Utah. There were also men's and women's basketball teams organized during McKay's tenure.

In 1905, church apostles John W. Taylor and Matthias F. Cowley resigned from the Quorum of the Twelve due to disagreement over the manifesto forbidding polygamy. In early 1906, apostle Marriner W. Merrill died. With three vacancies in the quorum, George F. Richards, Orson F. Whitney, and McKay were called as apostles in the church's April 1906 general conference. McKay was 32 years old at the time.
