Abstract:

Records documenting the board's fundraising for and construction and management of the Minnesota Building and exhibits at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The correspondence, much of which is addressed to board secretary Charles McCormick Reeve or superintendent L.P. Hunt, is divided into four sections: Chicago office, exhibitors, board, and miscellaneous. The Chicago office letters are mainly from fair officials including general instructions sent to all states but also regarding specifics related to the Minnesota exhibits. The exhibitors correspondence documents the planning for and erection of the exhibits, particularly those relating to flour milling, forestry, and education. The board correspondence includes letters from Governors Merriam and Nelson; board members Montfort, LaDue, Furlong, Lamphere, and Ward; superintendent Hunt; Women's Auxiliary Board head Mrs. L.P. Hunt; state geologist N.H. Winchell, and Conde Hamlin, St. Paul Pioneer Press. The miscellaneous correspondence, kept by Reeve, deals with a wide variety of topics involving the board's management and activities.

The subject files also cover a wide variety of topics related to the board's work and include bids for the building, a May 1893 commissioner's report, employment correspondence, petitions on closing the building on Sundays, financial statements, special subscription fund statements, and Women's Auxiliary Board records.

There are also correspondence and reports kept by superintendent Hunt, visitors registers of Minnesota residents who visited and toured the building, and award certificates presented for the education, fish, and forestry exhibits.
