LUF within the Unitarian Universalist Community

Textual documents, pamphlets and brochures, and 2 digital videos received from the CUC, one being labeled “UUA 2010 Breakthrough Congregation” and the other “Fusion;” both are promotional videos for the Unitarian Universalist denomination.

The Canadian Unitarian Council was a national group formed within the continental Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. They were interconnected corporations until 2002 when they split into independent organizations. The LUF hosted the CUC Annual General Meeting in 1986, 1997, and 2009. The CUC/UUA head office and other organizations within the UU society provided direction and guidance to the LUF when they were establishing themselves and when they became an incorporated fellowship. Mostly materials viewed and used by the board members and committee chairs. Majority of materials pertain to the AGMs and other conferences; not LUF specific.

Reports and Board Material

Textual documents and 3 CD-Rs with pictures and videos from events and moments. While the administrative assistants over the years did an admirable job updating binders with related material, there was substantial material that was not filed with the Board minutes and seemingly was gathered from the administrators desk when they moved out of their building on Algoma street. This included board minutes, reports, and correspondence that directly related to the way that LUF governed their institution. This subseries reflects the way the alphabetical arrangement had limitations: there was material that did not neatly fall into the categories they chose. Files relating to organization and function that did not fit into other series are stored here, such as “fellowship life.” Includes also bylaw and policy information, financial statements and reports, and board members’ correspondence.

Board Minutes

Earlier minutes are transcribed accounts of the board meetings, while later minutes are formal agendas with an outline of the board’s discussion and their concerns of that week. UU recommends the board organize their records by year which is what the LUF did, using binders to sort time periods. The original arrangement was not disturbed; the binders were replaced with folders. Length of board minutes vary.


File arrangement reflects original order: as part of the history project, the past Newsletters were ordered chronologically and ordered into binders. They include information typical of any newsletter: the month ahead, notes from the president, and general updates. The original arrangement was not disturbed while the binders were replaced with folders. It appears the newsletters were sent out electronically after 2012.

Photographs and Albums

Photographs and albums from Margaret Phillips' family and friends varying in date from sometime before the 1920's to 2015. Dates on folders are inferred as the majority of the photos are unlabeled or undated, with some exceptions.


Awards, certificates, and other tokens of accomplishment and appreciation given to Margaret Phillips over her life time.

They also provided services typical of religious denominations such as weddings and celebrations of life. They took part in local Thunder Bay programs such as “adopt a highway” and “bicycle for humanity.” Materials here reflect the originally received file arrangement.
