The history of the Deseret Alphabet is like so many other histories of the people and happenings of the time. It has been told in many
varieties. I am endeavoring, in these pages, to collect copies of as many written references to the Deseret Alphabet as is possible. I have
made quite a collection as you will notice, but I still have more work to do. New items will be added to this collection as quickly as they
are obtained. Please contact me if you know of another available reference, or are in possession of another reference that I have not included. I have broadly split the body of documents into two classes. The link, 'Looking Forward', has items that were written about the Deseret Alphabet when
it was still in use or development (or shortly after its abandonment). While the link, 'Looking Backwards', has items written long after the
alphabet had disappeared from the general consciousness.
