Biographical History

Ferdinand Friis Hintze, Sr. (1854-1928) was born to Anders Hintze and Karen Sophie Nicolaisen in Roskilde, Copenhagen, Denmark. He and his family joined the Church in Denmark and two years later, when he was age ten, his family emigrated to Utah. He served several missions to the Northwestern States Mission and then to Scandinavia and Turkey. His most notable achievement was translating the Book of Mormon into the Turkish language along with 29,000 copies of missionary tracts. His son, Ferdinand Friis Hintze, Jr. (1881-1973) was born in Big Cottonwood, Utah and later became a professor of geology at the University of Utah.
