Red Cross of Northern Utah

Identifier: MS-462

Scope and Contents

The Red Cross of Northern Utah collection is on loan from the Northern Utah chapter of the Red Cross in Ogden, Utah. The collection contains information pertaining to the Red Cross in Northern Utah from December 1915 to present. The Weber County Chapter of the Red Cross began in December 1915 when a small group of individual gathered together to begin organizing a chapter of the Red Cross. In 1962 the name was changed to the Bonneville chapter, and in 1969 the chapter merged with other chapters in Northern Utah to become the Northern Utah Chapter, with its headquarters being in Ogden, Utah.

The collection is separated into five main series: Chapters, Audio Visual, Oversized, Artifacts and Textiles. The first series, Chapters, with the largest chapter being the Weber/Bonneville Chapter is broken up into smaller sub series. These include publications, which deal with manuals and pamphlets created for the Red Cross, which also includes textbooks for first aid and so forth. The Programs sub series has information about the Canteen during WWII at the Union Station in Ogden, the Grey Ladies, Nursing and smaller community programs. It also contains the annual meeting minutes, executive committee meeting minutes and information about the merger that occurred in 1969.

The second series, Audio Visual contains photographs and negatives as well as slides and image sets that include slides with corresponding paperwork and photographs. It also contains 16mm films, Betamax videos, audio cassette tapes, and an LP record. Some of these items are oversized and have been placed in the oversized series with a separation sheet.

Oversized is the third series and contains the items that would not fit in the smaller boxes. This includes 16mm films, braille handbooks, scrapbooks, photographs and awards. There is also an architectural drawing that has been placed outside the collection in the map cases.

Artifacts is the fourth series and this contains audio visual viewing items, pennants, ribbons and sewing kits. The sewing kits are all hand made with buttons, threads, safety pins and needles circa 1940s. It also includes a first aid kit from 1948 which has never been used.

Textiles is the final series, which include uniforms, accessories and miscellaneous fabrics. Uniforms includes dresses, smocks, coats and shirts that were worn by Red Cross volunteers from the 1940s to 2000s. Accessories include epaulettes, ties, hats and other miscellaneous fabrics, to include a large sheet with a red cross sewn into the middle.
