May Green Hinckley

Third General Primary President: 1940–1943

Having lived outside the American West much of her life, May Hinckley brought an appreciation of the challenges those members faced to her call as the third General President of the Primary in 1940. During her short three and a half years of service, Sister Hinckley and her board created a new curriculum that consolidated the spiritual foundations of Primary and added a scripture reading program for leaders and teachers.
