The Christian Association fonds

  • CA GPR 0443
  • Fonds
  • 1926-1929

The fonds consists of three volumes (1926, 1928, 1929) of meeting records from the Christian Association. The records are a compilation of the reports of the groups at Toronto, Ontario and Beaverlodge, Alberta. The reports include those for regular meetings, Young People's meetings, and joint Summer and Winter conferences, and associated material including some letters, announcements, and a eulogy. The records were created during the time of C. H. Partridge’s presidency.

The reports provide more detail than normal meeting minutes and frequently include direct quotes from the speakers. They document personal details from the lives of the members of the Association and their relationships and interactions with other members of the group as well as others in their lives. The amount of detail recorded is directly related to Burnsite doctrines and beliefs, especially those surrounding divine guidance and the "live Gods". Speakers and members from Toronto area include: Mr. and Mrs. Partridge and their daughters Guinevere and Murell, the Mapes, the Parrys, the Pierces, the Wilsons, Mrs. Courage, the Darts, Mrs. Eadie, the Finkles, the Hills, Mr. Hughes, Mrs. Johnson, Miss Nixon, Mr. Pratt, Mr. Sarjeant, Mrs. Schofield, Mrs. Thomson, Mr. Tucker, and Miss Walton. Speakers and members from Beaverlodge include: the Flints, the Albrights, the Lossings, the Gaudins, the Smiths, the Wilkies, and Mrs. Miller.

The reports are arranged in essentially chronological order. Some diversion from strict chronological order is noticeable due to the difficulties of compiling reports from two groups separated by large distances. The original order of the material has been maintained by the Archivist.
