The collection consists of group photographs of the officers and men of the 119th Field Artillery Regiment stationed at Camp MacArthur, Waco (Tex.). Also included is a photograph of the officers of the 32nd Division, of which the 119th was a part.
The series contains materials created and collected by the Band members during the Tour and includes correspondence, invitations, programs, news articles and reviews, pins, band tour photos and memorabilia, recordings of concerts and events, and recorded recollections. Also included materials related to the 1981, 1984, and 2011 reunions (see The 50th Anniversary Reunion and Return to Russia Tour series for more materials). The series is arranged into alphabetically organized sub-series, each representing material donated by an individual Band member. The Recollections and Recordings sub-series contains material that was donated by different donors.
The first subgroup (1976-1979 Accessions) is divided into seven series: Correspondence, Manuscripts and Writings, Public Statements and Publicity, Biographical Material, The Republic of New Africa, The Crusader, and "Radio Free Dixie" Transcripts.
The 1992 Accession of records of the University of Michigan Solar Car Team (4 linear feet) dates from 1989 to 1993 and consists of Visual Materials (videos and a photo album), a series of Binders, student end-of-term Group Reports, and Topical Files (from the Solar Car Team's filing cabinet).
There are two videos within the Visual Materials subseries. The Making of Sunrunner by George Bournias summarizes the creation of Sunrunner and details student participation in the project. The second video is actually a combination of two slide programs: Cut 1: The Sunrunner Down Under and Cut 2: USA and Australia Slide Program. The subseries also includes a photo album containing pictures of team members performing different tasks. Only a small number of the photographs in the album are labeled.
The Binder subseries includes a set of five binders (1 linear foot) maintained by Frank E. Stagg, exterior design group leader. Covering the years 1989 and 1990, these "Sunrunner Books" contain newsletters and bulletins, lecture notes, timelines, budget and sponsor information, wind tunnel data, exterior group agendas, work schedules and weekly goals, Australia race rules and general correspondence.
Also part of this subseries are the "Team Binders" (1 linear foot). These are arranged alphabetically by team function and also date from 1989 to 1990. These materials provide insight into the creation of Sunrunner, highlighting design concepts and testing results.
The Group Reports subseries (1 linear foot) is also arranged alphabetically by team function. This series (dating from 1989 to 1990) includes bound and unbound reports. The level of student reporting ranges from the general "what I learned on this project" to very detailed reports with charts, graphs, and accounts of individual accomplishments.
The Topical Files subseries (.75 linear feet) is arranged alphabetically and consists primarily of materials from the solar car team office filing cabinet. Materials in this series (dating from 1989 to 1990) include lecture notes from Aero Viroment, student applications and biographies, GM Sunrayce USA and World Solar Challenge information, meeting minutes, newsletters and bulletins. Also a part of this series is information relating to a student history project completed in 2001 examining the solar car team from its beginnings in 1989. Included is their final paper and correspondence with former team members about their experiences with the project.
The 2002 Campaign series comprises all those materials that were clearly connected to the campaign. It includes administrative materials, such as budgets and planning documents; literature distributed by the YCFE and its opposition; and press coverage published throughout the duration of the campaign. It also details the efforts of organizing and training campaign volunteers and includes documentation of supporters in the business and religious community.
The 2004 Review is a comprehensive two-volume overview of the IA program. These binders compile documents from IA's conferences, projects, correspondence, participation lists and records, staff and faculty accomplishments, awards, publications, websites, and press material. As a primarily grant funded initiative, IA measured its accomplishments by the success of its projects. This Review was likely used as a reference source for the IA staff, as documentation of partnerships, and as evidence of accomplishments to show potential participants and funders. The contents of the review are as follows. Volume 1: Self Study, History, Consortium, Responses to the Work of IA, Governance, Work of Faculty, Work of Colleges and Universities; Volume 2: Work of Language, IA at the University of Michigan, Funding, Staff, and Public Scholarship
Though some of the binders' contents is duplicated in the two auxiliary boxes (some of the early newsletters for example), the binder's order and integrity have been maintained to provide a snapshot of how the project functioned and how it viewed itself in 2004. Of particular interest is the "Imagining Michigan Conferences" section. It was an annual series of conferences between 2000 and 2004 that used the "Imagining Your State Tool Kit" to identify ways to bring universities and community institutions within Michigan together. Book 1 has a CD-ROM "Highlights from November 2002 Conference."
The 5x7 Plates, 1894-1909 Series includes approximately 230 plates. Of particular interest and depth are the plates relating to the Garden of the Gods (Colorado), St. Louis, Mackinac Island and Les Cheneaux, as well as Tanner family portraits.
The Program Files series is the largest in the collection and dates from 1968 (when 60 Minutes premiered) to 2007 and is arranged by television schedule years (beginning in September). The content of the Program Files has changed over time and this accounts for some of the subseries that were developed with the passage of time. For the first few years, these files consisted only of the transcripts of the program as aired. Whatever background information was collected or if any post-program material was received, these were usually filed with the collection's General Files (described below). Beginning around 1975, the Program Files began to include, in addition to the broadcast transcript, all of the materials (clippings, articles, producer memoranda, viewer suggestions, transcripts of interviews with participants, etc.) accumulated in connection with the background preparation for any given story. Responses to stories, such as update information, viewer correspondence, and newspaper articles, were also now included in the individual program file. This post-program materials would remain with Program Files until the 1986/87 season when it was transferred again to the General Files.
An important subseries of the Program Files consists of story ideas in various stages of development that were dropped or never aired for whatever reason. Initially, this subseries was designated as "Dead Story" materials and covered the period from 1981 to 1990. Included were clippings, correspondence, and memoranda from producers and others with suggestions for possible program segments. Prior to 1981, story suggestion files were usually maintained as part of the General Files series. Around 1990, the content of the Program Files series again changed and thus was created a subseries of background materials for stories both aired and proposed. Because there is often overlap between the program file and the background file for a given story in the 1990s, the researcher is encouraged to consult both.
Concluding the Program Files is a set of binders containing copies of transcripts for 60 Minutes and other Mike Wallace programs such as CBS Reports and his Biography program. This portion of the collection only covers the period up to 1990.

Measuring 24 linear feet, the records are divided into three series, one for each "wave" of interviews. The 1967 Survey Forms (13 linear feet) consists solely of completed survey forms. Each form is approximately 40 pages in length and asked respondents to answer a wide variety of searching questions. Information is regularly recorded on survey scales, but interviewers frequently augmented this information through annotations on the form.
The 1968 Survey material (3 linear feet) consists primarily of completed 1968 survey forms, which were about 30 pages each in length and similar in content to the 1967 instrument. In addition there are interviews with civic leaders that consist of both a survey form and a tape recording of the interview.

The Abraham Epstein papers at the Bentley Historical Library provide the researcher insight into the careers of Abraham Epstein and Henrietta Epstein. Abraham Epstein's writings and portions of his correspondence demonstrate the depth of his commitment to social security and offer a look at his version of the ideal social security program. The papers, however, provide little insight into the workings of the AAOAS and AASS - organizations which were a vital and integral part of Abraham Epstein's life. It is only through study of the man and the organizations behind which he was the driving force that a thorough appreciation of his role in the social security movement can be gained.
The Abraham Epstein papers at the Michigan Historical Collections are divided into two subgroups: Abraham Epstein and Henrietta Epstein. Both subgroups are further divided into two series: Correspondence (arranged topically), and Topical Files.
Of interest to the researcher are Abraham Epstein's files of correspondence with the Social Security Board, in which he discusses his views of the theory, content, and implementation of the Social Security Act. In his Topical Files, there are extensive holdings of articles and writings, many issues of the AASS monthly bulletin, and interesting industrial handbooks, published in the 1920s, from various British Isle firms. The pension and insurance programs of European firms shaped, in part, Epstein's early views on social security.
The collection consists of photographic negatives of aerial views over the University of Michigan Stadium during the Michigan-Michigan State University football game on October 5, 1940. Also includes other views of the University of Michigan campus on that same date.

The Abstract of Mortgages series (volumes numbered for storage vol. 24-42) contains abstracts of mortgages from 1825 through 1954. This series covers Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, the villages in the county, and the townships, with the exception of Salem and Superior Townships. These volumes seem to have been first compiled in the early 1880s. They were kept up-to-date with later mortgages until 1954.
The first series, Academic Accomplishments, contains Professor Hultquist's curriculum vita and copies of his scientific research papers.
The Academic Affiliations series (1945-1969; .3 lin. ft.) consists of three subseries: Detroit Institute of Arts (1945-1963), Richmond Museum of Fine Arts (1963-1965) and University of Michigan Museum of Art (1965-1969).

The Richmond Museum of Fine Arts subseries consists of four folders and contains typed and written correspondence, memoranda, an annual report and a few miscellaneous items. The University of Michigan Museum of Art subseries consists of three folders and contains memoranda, typed and written correspondence and miscellaneous items.
The Academic and Professional Files series is the largest portion of the collection and offers the richest source of material from which to document Oksenberg's extensive and varied career. This series, consisting mainly of correspondence, but also including memoranda, reports, and other documentation, has been maintained by broad chronological subseries. Because of Oksenberg's many responsibilities and academic commitments and because these files came into the library in several different accessions, there is much overlapping between the several subseries. The researcher is therefore encouraged to examine the container listing carefully for related (though separated) files of interest to his/her research.
Some of the subseries are arranged by name of individuals. Included in these are prominent sinologists such as A. Doak Barnett and John K. Fairbanks; policy makers W. Michael Blumenthal and Zbigniew Brzezinski; and presidents Nixon, Carter, and Bush. Other subseries are arranged by name of organization. Here the researcher will find Oksenberg's files from his activities with the Committee on Scholarly Communications with the PRC (CSCPRC); the Joint Committee on Contemporary China (JCCS); the National Committee on US-China Relations (NCUSCR); the Social Science Research Council (SSRC); and several other Chinese studies organizations. This series provides a sense of the changing concerns and priorities of American sinologists during the 1970s and 1980s.

The records of the Academic Freedom Lecture Fund (AFLF) begin in 2000, and mainly consist of videotapes of lectures from the University of Michigan Senate's annual Davis, Markert, Nickerson Lecture on Academic and Intellectual Freedom. There is no documentation of the fund itself.
The annual Davis, Markert, Nickerson Lectures on Academic and Intellectual Freedom are organized chronologically. In addition to the videotapes, documentation includes some transcripts of the lectures, and event programs. The printed program contains background on the lectures, including the resolution establishing the lecture and biographies of the three professors. The 2000 lecture folder also contains a memorial for Clement L. Markert which appeared in The Journal of Heredity.
Adam Kulakow's undergraduate documentary Keeping in Mind, focusing on the University of Michigan's handling of the Davis, Markert, Nickerson cases in the 1950s during the McCarthy era, contributed greatly to the development of the AFLF and the annual lectures. The video was shown publicly for the first time on April 9, 1989. An upgraded 2001 copy of this video is included in these records. For more information about the documentary, and the interviews conducted in support of the project, researchers may consult the Adam Kulakow Papers. The Kulakow collection consists of interview transcripts and videos, and notes which Kulakow generated while producing the documentary. It also includes a copy of the original documentary. Note: The 1989 conditions governing access to "Keeping in Mind" are presumed to remain in force. Please see the finding aid for the Adam Kulakow papers for access and use conditions.
In 2000, the University of Michigan Press published Unfettered Expression: Freedom in American Intellectual Life. The book, edited by Peggie J. Hollingsworth, contained essays originally given as lectures in the annual Davis, Markert, Nickerson Lecture on Academic and Intellectual Freedom series at the University of Michigan from 1991 to 1999.

The Adam Kulakow Papers and Visual Materials consist of materials which Kulakow generated while producing the documentary Keeping in Mind, an exploration of the effects of McCarthyism on The University of Michigan in the 1950s. The documentary was Kulakow's undergraduate senior honors thesis at the University of Michigan. It focuses on three University of Michigan faculty members (Dr. Chandler Davis, Dr. Clement Markert, and Dr. Mark Nickerson) who were called before the House UnAmerican Activities Committee in 1954 to testify regarding their alleged affiliations with the Communist Party and examines subsequent actions taken by the University. Kulakow's work was funded by the University of Michigan, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts; the Bentley Historical Library; and the Leo Burnett Scholarship. The documentary premiered on the University of Michigan Ann Arbor campus on April 18, 1989. At the premier, the film was shown and afterwards the events on which it focused were discussed by the three professors, who had traveled to Ann Arbor for the event.
The collection is comprised of two U-matic videotape copies of the documentary itself (one of which is an archival master copy, not for research use) and one VHS copy of the documentary (to be used for making copies only); U-matic videotapes of interesting interviews conducted by Kulakow and his production crew with historians and University of Michigan faculty and administrators; and one folder of handwritten Kulakow notes and interview transcripts.

The Administration series provides information about Michigan RCAR's internal organization, mainly since the mid-1980s. The minutes from Policy Council and Director's Reports contain yearly summations of the group's activities, and give some sense how priorities were set and activities were planned. The "Policy Council and Affiliated Pro-choice Group Lists" folder provides information about the founding of the Michigan chapter of RCAR in 1975.
The Administration series includes both formal and informal group and individual portraits of university central administration and support staff and some office and workplace images.
The Administration series consists of policies, membership details, speakers, and other similar institutional records.
The Administration series includes two subseries. Corporate Papers contains the articles of incorporation in 1917, by laws for St. Columba Community Outreach in 1984, and the Michigan Annual Reports for both entities. The 1912 abstracts for the original property purchase for two lots are included. Finance subseries includes the accountings for Save the Church Fund in the 1930s and 1940s and more recent reviewed financial statements from the 1990s.
The Administration series (2 linear ft.; 1971-1984 and 1983-1998) consists of those records related to the internal operations and the outreach functions of the organization. The records are arranged alphabetically by type of material and by the group creating the records. The minutes of the Executive Committee and the Political Action Committee provide the best entry to the policy and decision-making processes of Common Cause in Michigan. The general correspondence and financial statements are also illuminating of the inner workings of the group. The Michigan newsletters and the press statements are quite informative and seem effective at communicating the leaders' message to the public at large.
The Administration series is the largest series. This series includes; audits, clippings, contracts, correspondence, financial records, history, job descriptions, licensure and certification, manuals, marketing, minutes, monthly summaries, plans, proposals, publications, reports, and tax returns. The series contains documentation pertaining to the creation, finances, publicity, and management of Individualized Home Nursing Care. There is a large amount of minutes, which document board of directors, committee, sub-committee, and review committee meetings. Through the minutes the social programs, outreach planning, marketing, particular aspects of patient care and specific financial concerns are detailed. Materials of interest may include correspondence between Individualized Home Nursing Care and Yomiuri Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper, regarding the work done by Individualized Home Nursing Care. There is also information pertaining to the subsequent partnership that evolved which resulted in the United States and Japan Training Institute in Geriatric Care. The series also includes detailed information pertaining to the financial state of the organization and statistics regarding patient care, which can be found in the audit documentation, monthly summaries, and the tax information. The founding documentation within the history sub series may also be of interest because it documents the evolving goals, mission statement, and responsibilities of the organization and its board members.
The Administrative Records series includes articles of incorporation, bylaws, and history; committee records; correspondence; minutes; and NAUL newsletters.
The Administration series contains seven subseries. The Board of Directors subseries includes SAC corporate papers, minutes for 1988-1991 and 1999-2001, strategic plans, and the 2000-2001 Board revitalization process. The Clippings subseries highlight SAC activities in the public eye through the three decades of existence and is a primary source for finding details on SAC activities in Ann Arbor and around the state. Included in this subseries are the contents of a scrapbook of newspaper clippings, damaged by the 2002 fire, documenting the Black History case. This case received national attention and was cited in the New York Times and other major newspapers.

The Administration series consists of three subseries: A.G. Studer and R. Elliott files; R. Adelberg files; and Topical files.
The bulk of the records are in the Administration series. This series is primarily composed of meeting minutes that span from 1896-1997. These meeting minutes reflect the evolving mission of the camp as it was influenced by the changing social norms. The meeting minutes comprise two groups, the House Committee and the Girls Friendly Society Board of Directors. These meeting minutes were kept intermingled because they had overlapping membership and in some instances the notes refer to one another. Interspersed throughout the meeting minutes are annual reports and monthly financial reports. These reports are kept with the meeting minutes because they are referenced in the meeting minutes. Significant issues found in the notes are the changing administration of the society and of Camp Holiday, the amount of resources spent on the maintenance of the cottages, and the annual experiences of the summer camp staff. The Administration series also contains information pertaining to the background of the camp, committee member lists, constitution and by-laws, brief correspondence which includes a letter sent to the Queen of England, material from a leaders workbook in 1980, membership policies, and the 1980 Trust Agreement.
Administration (1 linear foot, 1951-2004) includes correspondence, newspaper articles, photographs, and publications. The correspondence documents the daily administration of the program and negotiation for the continuation of the program. Of special note are letters from many former students written in 1974 about their experiences in the program. The newspaper articles are mainly publicity for the program, and discuss the purpose and findings of the projects. The photographs show students collecting and analyzing the survey data. Publications form half of this series. Some are published by DAS about the program, and others are publications by faculty and students using the data collected by the survey. Also of note are lists of survey topics by year and bibliographies of all the publications using DAS data. Publications are arranged alphabetically, by title.
The Administration series comprises 0.3 linear feet and details the organizational structure of CIF. It includes records from the Board of Directors and Executive Committees (including meeting minutes, handouts, memos, and reports from various subcommittees) and some historical materials, including CIF's Articles of Incorporation.

The Administration series covers the business facets of ATC, focusing mainly on its finances, property management, and interaction with government agencies.
The Administration group was created in the course of processing and consists of those records related to the structure and organization of the church. This group, arranged alphabetically by type of material, runs just over one linear foot and includes annual reports, constitutions, financial records, histories, and minutes. The histories are valuable in providing self-reflective views of Second Baptist as a church very concerned with its place in history. The financial records are fulsome and quite detailed, so they provide telling insights into the challenges facing Second Baptist during the lean years of the Depression and the boom times of postwar Detroit. The annual reports and minutes of the advisory board and trustees are quite illuminative of the 1970s and 1980s as the church faced the challenges of an aging congregation grown fewer in number and the court controversy surrounding the removal of Pastor Holloman.
The Administration series is arranged alphabetically by topic. It includes the club's by-laws, records of committees and club officers, and minutes and reports. In addition, the series contains newsletters sent to the members and club yearbooks with information regarding the history of the club and the interest groups. Membership lists dating from 1921-1999 are also included in this series. A large portion of the series is folders and volumes of compiled minutes, membership rosters, newsletters, and other material. While these folders do contain some duplicate materials, they offer a comprehensive group of records by year.
The Administration (1929-1959; 5 linear feet) series includes documents pertaining to the establishment of the fund, annual reports, and minutes and resolutions of the board of trustees. Additionally this series includes reports from the field received by Norton from Child Health Division staff members. The three largest files in this series correspond to the three divisions within the CFM: the Research Laboratory, the Child Health Division, and the Child Guidance Division. Each of these files includes such documentation as annual reports, correspondence of division directors, and various other reports and memoranda. The Research Laboratory is the smallest of these, but the researcher should note that its director Icie Macy-Hoobler donated her professional files to the library separately, and included with them are her CFM papers.
The Child Guidance Division subseries, in addition to annual reports and correspondence of one of its directors Maud Watson, is noteworthy for the correspondence exchanged between Norton and its other director John M. Dorsey. Dorsey was a distinguished psychiatrist and university educator who wrote long and thoughtful letters to Norton about child guidance and the kinds of programs needed to deal with the stresses confronting the state's young people, particularly urban youth.
The Administration (1934-1945) group consists of four folders of reports from various offices and organizations contributing to orientation.
The Administration series details the interactions between the governing heads of MIFA (the Forensic Council and State Manager), their members, and their sponsoring institution. The series also documents special initiatives undertaken to assist in MIFA's administration. The series is divided into four subseries: Forensic Council, Mailings, Standing Committees, and Topical Files. The Forensic Council contains the agendas, minutes, reports, and supporting documents of the Council's meetings and is, by far, the most comprehensive and orderly subseries. The files are arranged chronologically in this subseries. The Standing Committees subseries is composed of records pertaining to meetings of the debate, individual events, drama/theatre, and discussion/student congress committees. There are also a few files of the Middle Level individual events committee. These files are typically arranged chronologically by school year and are not complete. Many of the items in these files will also be found in the Forensic Council subseries, but it might be easier to first check the committee files to locate information concerning one of the MIFA activities. The subseries Mailings, 1967-2004, is arranged chronologically and contains materials mailed to coaches and participating schools. While a portion of these records can also be found in the Forensic Council series, these documents have been retained in this arrangement as full examples of the volume of material received by member schools during their participation in MIFA activities. The last subseries in this portion of the collection is of Topical Files, which arranges information alphabetically by topic rather than chronologically.
The first series, Administration (Boxes 1-3) contains annual reports, correspondence, and budgets for the Center. Interesting documents in this series include the correspondence between the Center and universities in France and the Ivory Coast, and a collection of historical papers on the development of the Center in the late 1950s. Also contained in this series are the records relating to the Foster Library which was managed by the Center. Contained in the Library's records are the lists of the many publications that the Center published from their research.
The Administration series was created in the course of processing and consists of materials related to the structural organization of the union, its affiliation with MFT/AFT, and its efforts to keep members informed. This series is comprised subseries reflecting different accession of GEO records. Records within each subseries are alphabetically by type of material. The series as a whole reflects GEO's pragmatism and commitment to fairly representing the interests of its members. The researcher should note that decision-making within the GEO hierarchy was mutable with the executive committee, stewards council, and steering committee having final say at different times. The 1975 strike tactics and strategy are well covered in the minutes of the executive committee and stewards council and in The Picket Line, the GEO daily newsletter of spring 1975.
Administration, 1982-1990, series contains by-laws, correspondence, budgets, membership information, minutes, and reports.
Administration and Background consists of 0.2 linear feet of material. It includes the history of the program, the agreement with the Korean Foundation, and newsletters and brochures created by the program.
The Administration and Governance series, (1945-2010, 2.0 linear feet) contains materials produced in the course of cooperatively running Henderson House. Researchers can find business records, minutes of meetings, documentation regarding the history of the house, and other administrative records. The bulk of the materials consist of minutes and agendas of Henderson House meetings, Board of Governors meetings, and Alumnae Council meetings from 1945 to 2002 and are arranged chronologically. Five ledger books containing minutes from 1946 to 1956 are also part of this series.

Administration/Organizational Files (1987-1996) is the first series. The diversity training manuals document the creation of the diversity programs that the office sponsored. They contain records which explain what the goals of the diversity programs would be, and what the university wanted the program to accomplish. The correspondence is mostly between the Office of New Student Programs and other offices at the University of Michigan, such as the Office of the President. The files also document the selection process for program facilitators, and job descriptions. The fourth manual, the most recent, represents how information in the ONSP was kept after 1989. The manual lists facilitators for that year and what activities and programs they would be in charge of. The file also contains general correspondence. Two other files contain evaluations of the diversity program from students that went through the program. All of the comments are anonymous. The series also contains the speech "Towards a Truly Multicultural University" by Frances R. Aparicio, associate professor of Romance Languages/ Latino Studies at the University of Michigan. The final folder in the series contains a speech and a transcript from the network news program Frontline. The episode is titled "Racism 101" and focuses part of the story on the University of Michigan. In addition to the transcript there is a video of this episode in box 2.

The Administrative series is comprised of two major areas: funding and management matters. An NIH grant application for 1990-1995 comprises the major part of the Funding subseries. Included in the General folders is the report produced for the NIH site visit in 1994, for the renewal of the grant. A small amount of correspondence regarding program expenditures and stipends during the period from 1986 to 1993 is included. A Program Management folder contains job descriptions, a management schedule, and recommendations resulting from an administrative review. These papers provide background for the policy procedures and decisions of the program.
The Administrative series covers the period 1957-2002 and is the largest portion of the record group. In addition to the church's quarterly conference minutes, this series also documents its activities within the Michigan Conference and within the General or national conference. Under "Financial" are formal, detailed, annual and quarterly reports containing information about nearly all of the church's expenditures and receipts. It should be noted that financial information about the status of various church projects can be found scattered throughout this series. Under "Pastors," the researcher will find information about pastors Hilliard and Ardrey. Although most of these files relate to the activities of Pastor Ardrey, files of Bishop Hilliard have been separately donated to the library and may be found cataloged under his name. The Ardrey files reflect his concern for his community and his desire to improve the educational system. Materials from many of the committees that he worked on - including the Property Release Option program, Citizens for Millage, and the Task Force on School/Community Relations - are found in this portion of the Administrative series.
St. Paul A.M.E. Zion Church was also involved in a housing project, 1966-1978, and records from this undertaking are found under the heading "St. Paul Housing Corporation." Designed to be an affordable housing alternative for the elderly and low income families, this project was financed by a federal government loan. Unfortunately, the project never materialized as anticipated because the loan came due before construction was completed.
The Administration series also includes materials on some of the organizations within the church, such as its clubs, the board of stewards and the board of trustees. The researcher will get a sense of the church's membership by examining the funeral notices, many of which contain brief summaries of the lives of deceased members. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by name of member. There are also funeral notices scattered among the most recent Sunday Bulletins.
The Administrative records chronicle the financial and leadership activities of Immanuel U.C.C. from 1912 to 1995, with the bulk falling between 1942 to 1978. The researcher will find a copy of the 1894 church constitution in the Constitution and Bylaws file as well as various later drafts. The first volume of Consistory and Congregational meeting minutes contains the earliest consistent documentation of church decisions and activities, which were recorded in German until mid-1927. Minutes were handwritten until early 1969, after which they were typed, copied, and taped into the journal. The folders in this series include minutes, agendas, and reports that are absent from the bound volumes.
The church's financial activities and membership levels are available from the formal Financial Reports and Year Book Reports to the parent United Church of Christ. More detailed records of disbursements and income are found in several of the Yearly Files. The church's organizations, for example the Consistory, Board of Education, Ladies' Aid Society, and the Pastor, report on their finances and activities in the Annual Reports to the Membership.
The Pastors file is an incomplete collection of ten of Immanuel's twelve (non-interim) pastors' hiring, letters of resignation, and correspondence after departure. It also includes documents for Keith Westphal, who was minister of Christian Education from 1966 to 1967.
Immanuel's self-reflection, as it sought to be responsive to its membership, is evident in the number of surveys it did. In 1961, the church coordinated with their parent organization to do a comprehensive Congregational Analysis. In 1967 and 1973, the leadership conducted surveys of the membership; the responses can be found in the corresponding Yearly Files. The most serious evaluation of the church's relevance came in the late 1970s with the decision whether or not to merge with St. Mark's and Trinity churches (the third, St. Peter's, decided to close rather than merge). The Tri-Church Merger series includes meeting minutes, Immanuel's compiled files pertaining to the three churches (each includes a formal appraisal), and their membership survey and ultimate rejection of the merger.
