PDF download: 1902 Universalist General Convention Board of Trustees rules and Theological Schools notice

The PDF file linked from this page is in the public domain.

This is a little experiment in both open licenses (public domain, really) and getting hard-to-find documents “out there.”

This is the inside back cover of the Thirty-Seventh Annual Report of the Board of Trustees (1902) of the Universalist General Convention, the national denominational body. It is what the title suggests: the Board’s own rules, and a word about the three seminaries, and how an aspirant for ministry might proceed.

I have a few of these reports, and find them fascinating. Like how the denominational young adults group was an avid fund-raiser for church planting ministers’ salaries. Or how an optional fund (“Cent-a-Day”) would yield $81.82 per participant in today’s dollars.

One word of warning; it is 2 megabytes large. Later. I’ve made a better, cleaner, and smaller (230K) version.

27 January. Well, I can’t get it to download either. I work on that this evening.
