First Unitarian Church, Duluth (Minn.) records

 Collection
Identifier: S2445

Scope and Contents

The records of the church span a number of the years of activity, but there are gaps in the records.

The records are organized into four series: Administrative, Social Organizations, Ministerial, and Financial.

A few folders of additional materials include newspaper clippings, photographs and two scrapbooks. Board minutes span November 1954 to January 1980, and tend to include financial statements or budget reports, but expanded financial records are found in that series. Records of the Congregation's social groups drop off in the mid 1960s.
