MS 20447 Benjamin Stites Terry Manuscript, October 4, 1923, 1 item. Consists of a transcript of an address before the Baptist State Convention at Fargo, North Dakota, entitled "The History of One Frontier Family." The manuscript provides the history of the family of Elijah Stites Terry, a Baptist missionary to Dakota Territory.


The history of the North Dakota Baptist State Convention begins with the first Baptist missionaries to what is now North Dakota.  Elijah Stites Terry and James Tanner arrived in Walhalla in March, 1852, to establish a mission among the Indians.  Terry and Tanner proposed to build a log structure in which they could conduct services and teach Native Americans.  On June 27, 1852, while in the woods preparing timber for the building, Terry was shot and scalped by a band of Sioux Indians.  Soon after, James Tanner left Walhalla and the proposed mission.  Baptists did not return to missionary activity in present-day North Dakota for nearly a quarter of a century.

The next attempt by Baptists to evangelize the area, though less dramatic, was successful.  To meet the needs of recent immigrants, the First Baptist Church in Fargo was organized on January 27, 1879. The ethnic groups which settled in North Dakota, e.g. Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, Germans, and Russians, immigrated in numbers large enough to enable them to establish their own ethnic churches and associations.  Despite the value placed on local organizations, the North Dakota Baptist Association was organized in Grand Forks on November 5, 1881.  Three years later, in early November, 1884, the North Dakota Baptist State Convention was organized, its constitution adopted, and officers elected. The Convention's object, as stated in its constitution, was "to promote religious and educational interests in North Dakota."  Power of the Convention to interfere with or implicate the independence of member churches was expressly prohibited by the constitution.  For nearly its first decade the organization of a Convention seemed insignificant.  As the churches grew in strength, and a few of them became self-supporting, the need and value of the Convention were more fully appreciated.  In 1892 a plan of cooperation between the Convention and the American Baptist Home Mission Society (ABHMS)--set-up to finance the "Mission of the West" and dependent largely on Baptists of the eastern United States--was adopted.  Incorporation in 1911, in addition to several amendments to the Convention's constitution, allowed the Convention to act as a legal entity.  Eleven years later, on March 1, 1922, the North Dakota Baptist State Convention changed its relationship with the ABHMS from a "dependent state," to become an "independent convention."  The North Dakota Baptist State Convention cooperates with the Conference of Churches and participates in the United Ministries Higher Education Commission.  Since 1969, the North Dakota Convention has contracted with and provided the secretariat and other ministries for the South Dakota Baptist State Convention.

Opportunities found in railroad expansion, wheat farming and cattle ranching, coal mining, and oil production brought people to North Dakota, but economic depression and drought had often brought the reverse.  By 1905, twenty-five of the churches established under the leadership of Rev. G. W. Huntley were extinct.  Early church leaders blamed the lack of money to build church edifices, but in later years, churches disappeared due to dwindling population in rural areas and small towns.  Also, some congregations chose to be independent of the convention.  Dr. Fred E. Stockton, General Baptist Superintendent of North Dakota from 1920 to 1938 and author of North Dakota Baptist Half-Century Book, 1934, listed one hundred and seventy-one churches that had been organized in North Dakota with approximately one hundred alive and related to the Convention in 1934.  By 1984 nineteen churches made up the North Dakota Baptist State Convention. Those nineteen local churches are grouped into two associations: the Sheyenne River Association, formerly known as the North Dakota Association, and the Northwest Association.  Baptist congregations still belonging to the North Dakota Baptist State Convention are listed below.

The scrapbooks are arranged chronologically with foldered material preceding bound volumes.
