Historical Talk and Prayer Endings

This post at Splendid Sun gives a somewhat informal, but fascinating history of the usage of "In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen." at the end of talks and prayers in LDS usage. I didn't realize it was such a recent formulation, growing in the 1950's. I would be interested to see the results of a more exhaustive search on the topic.
