Boone County Pomona Grange Records, 1897-1982
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: Minute books (1897-1982) document the business meetings of the Boone County Pomona Grange detailing topics of discussion programs, plans for proposed projects, and subordinate grange activities. Records of meetings between 1904 and 1910 are missing; it appears the group may have disbanded and reorganized during this time period. The roll book and dues account books (1897-1967) provide statistics on membership and dues fluctuations. Treasurer’s and secretary’s annual reports further describe the organization’s activities. Several state grange records including rule books, programs, journals of proceedings, and rosters also are available. A catalog of Grange buttons and badges visually portrays the organization’s regalia in 1912.
