Dear 100 Hour Board,
In my English class, we were recently discussing the phenomenon of General Authorities always having a middle name. My teacher told us that they all do, although I'm not sure whether he meant presently, or in the past as well. Do you know of any since Joseph Smith who only have a first and last? If so, please list them.

LeGrand Richards, from the geneology info I've found, didn't have a middle name.
Emeritus General Authority Vaughn J. Featherstone doesn't have a middle name either. Just an initial. No, I'm not kidding. Here's the reference:
Norman R. Bowen, "Bishop Vaughn J. Featherstone," Ensign, July 1972, 20
