Northampton Friends Meeting Records

1991-1999
1 box (0.25 linear foot)
Call no.: MS 902 N678

The Northampton (Massachusetts) Meeting began as a monthly meeting set off from the Mount Toby monthly meeting in nearby Leverett, Massachusetts in 1994. In 1991, support for a Northampton meeting had begun to grow, so a preparative meeting, under the care of the Mount Toby meeting, met from 1991-1994. In 1994, a newly-established Northampton meeting was formed.

The collection includes almost all minutes from July 1991 through July 1993, as well as a State of the Society report for 1993. (See April 1993). The State of the Society report is called out in its own folder for 1994, the first year of the re-established Northampton monthly meeting. Then the minutes continue from September 1995 through July 1999.

Note that a previous incarnation of a Northampton meeting, starting in 1938 at Smith College, eventually evolved into the Middle Connecticut Valley Monthly Meeting that in turn led to the development of the Mount Toby (Massachusetts) meeting. Those materials can be found in the Mount Toby collection (mums902-M686).
