Scope and Content
This series is made up of minutes recorded at meetings of individual committees making up the Utah Centennial Commission, created in 1939 to commemorate the advent of the pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley. These typewritten minutes are an official record of meetings of committees and sub-committees. Typical entries note the date, time meeting convened and adjourned, and location of the meeting as well as the names of committee members in attendance or absent. Also recorded are the nature of the business discussed, plans presented, suggestions made, and actions taken (i.e., motions made, votes taken, decisions made, assignments made, etc.). In some cases a meeting agenda and notification letters are included.
Alphabetical by committee name, thereunder chronological
Duplicate progress reports are included.
Minutes from the Centennial Commission (1947), Series 19313, include minutes of the Centennial Commission.
Records of the Centennial Commission originally were deposited with the Utah Historical Society, which in 1949 was designated by Governor J. Bracken Lee as the official repository for the records of the commission. The newly independent Utah State Archives retained custody of the records following its removal from the Historical Society in 1969.
This series is classified as Public.
