Custodial history

Most records in the collection were likely transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986, with additional items transferred by 2011. Original provenance is largely unclear but archivists or others from Saskatchewan Conference or its predecessors probably brought together the various documents (which could alternately have been filed in other Conference Archives collections).

Scope and content

The collection consists of primarily textual materials relating to various ministers and other lay people associated with the United Church, in Saskatchewan. Contents include obituaries, newspaper articles, pamphlets, programs, publications, and various other documents containing biographical information. Some are accompanied by portraits.
