Activities: Bart Williams reports (19 Dec 2001) that "Pres. Stout ... [lives] in Orem, UT. I talked with him and his wife and daughter Wendy for about an hour or so [recently]. We attended the 100 year Celebration of the Opening of Japan. It was a very good program presided by Elder Kikuchi who delivered the Keynote Address. The Stout Family is doing well and would like to get together with everyone who served under him."
