Louie Bouton Felt

First General Primary President: 1880–1925

Thirty-year-old Louie B. Felt was the Primary president of the Salt Lake City Eleventh Ward when she was called as the first General President of the new Primary Association in 1880. She continued her service as the ward Primary president and only gradually assumed full leadership responsibilities for the general Primary. Before Sister Felt was released in 1925, much that is still familiar in Primary today was in place.
