Hi I'm J. Taylor Hollist

All my education was in Utah in mathematics. I have lived in Oneonta, New York for over 50 years.

About Me

I spent 15 years studying mathematical symmetries in the art of M. C.Escher. Since retiring from teaching geometry at the college level, my interest has been in Mormon history, especially along the Susquehanna River. A book by A. James Faulkner (1924-2016) on Wilford C. Wood (1893-1968) of Bountiful, Utah has been of interest to me because I have done a lot of research on W. Wood and the Faulkner book has no footnotes.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were Mormon and they had strong testimonies of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have always liked Latter-day Saint Church history. The teachings and example that Christ set for us has always been an inspiration to me

How I live my faith

My wife and I serve in the Palmyra New York Temple.
