The Congregational Church Papers brings together records from a number of Southern California Congregational Church organizations. The earliest records include those of the Congregational Ministerial Union of Los Angeles and vicinity, 1908–1934; Woman’s Home Missionary Union of Southern California, 1888–1925; and Woman’s Board of Missions for the Pacific, 1889–1914. However, the greatest portion of the collection is annual reports and miscellaneous items from member churches of the Congregational Conference of Southern California and the Southwest, 1952–1963, though a few items date to the early 1900s. Papers from women’s organizations account for more than a third of the collection.
In addition to the Congregational Church Papers, we have been the recipient of papers from specific Congregational Churches including First Congregational United Church of Christ Barstow and Mount Hollywood Congregational Church (United Church of Christ).
