Scope and Contents

This collection contains five diaries, 1899-1904, of Reverend H. Grundy from Oshkosh, Wisconsin and LaSalle, Illinois. According to the diaries, Grundy was pastor of the Second Baptist Church in Oshkosh in 1899 and the Congregational Baptist Church in LaSalle from 1900 to 1901. Reverend Grundy then moved to Chicago, Illinois to become a pastor there. In the diaries, Grundy wrote about performing weddings and funerals, names of those parishioners who were "saved" by him, travel destinations, visiting with members of his church, and other aspects of his daily life. The entries for the 1899 diary are short, while the entries of the other diaries are longer.
