Scope and Content

Incorporation case files contain at a minimum the original articles of incorporation and any subsequent amendments. Some files also contain notices to pay licensing fees and taxes, oaths of office for corporate officers, annual reports, correspondence, or other miscellaneous documents. Case files are created during the length of a corporation's duration. The case file is generated when companies incorporate within Grand County and serve as evidence of "due incorporation of the corporation [UCA 16-2]." The series officially ended in 1961 when the state Division of Corporations was created.

Articles of incorporation constitute a contract between the state and corporation, between corporation and stockholders, and between the stockholders and state. The articles of incorporation record the following: names of the incorporators and their places of residence, the length of the corporation's duration, the pursuit of business agreed upon, amount of stock each shareholder receives, descriptio n of stock classes, number and kind of corporate officers, and the number of directors necessary to transact corporate business.
