Name of creator
Records in the fonds were likely transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986. Their original provenance is unclear. The additional “W.H. Hughes” file(s) appears to have been assembled around 1955, before joining the other Union materials, at the Conference Archives.
From 1925 through to 1982, the official repository for Conference, Presbytery and local records of the United Church in Saskatchewan was at St. Andrew’s College (Saskatoon). In 1982, the Conference signed an agreement to house their records with the Saskatchewan Archives Board (later Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan), while still retaining ownership and management responsibilities. The collections were gradually relocated and continue to be stored with the Provincial Archives, to the present day.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of textual materials created by and relating to the General Council of Local Union Churches, its Policy Committee and related individuals and bodies.
Contents include: minutes of the Policy Committee (c1920), a report to the General Council of Local Union Churches of Western Canada (1921), and resolutions passed by the General Council (1922); publications relating to the General Council (1921-1924); correspondence regarding Union Churches and Cooperative Churches (1924); and an address “The Evolution of Organic Church Union in Canada”, given by the Chairman at a General Council Meeting, on April 5, 1915.
There is also a group of additional materials on the topic of Local Unions, created/collected by the Rev. W.H. Hughes. This contains some originals and some copies of archival materials, along with other documents written and/or assembled by Hughes.
