Monday Trivia Quiz
Here's another question from Dave Schneider from the Deseret News (who felt guilty that his last question was so obscure that no one got it):

Marty Stephens' three terms as speaker of the Utah House of Representative is the record length of time in that office. During the 50 years, or 25 legislative terms, preceding Stephens becoming speaker, 23 different legislators served as speaker -- 21 of them for just single terms. Name the only two speakers during this period to serve two terms.
