Content Description

The collection consists of one ledger and various other items for the Jerauld County Young Democratic Club. The ledger (5 ½ x 12 ½ x 1) is mostly empty with the exception of a member list and dues paid from March 6 to April 18, 1934. The list is found on pages 72 and 73 and includes 69 members who paid fifty cents for their dues. The other main part of the collection is activities concerning the “Birthday Ball for the President” held on January 30, 1935 at Wessington Springs (S.D.). The ball was to commemorate the birthday of then President Franklin Roosevelt. The collection includes a national brochure on the event, receipts for expenses, a dance card with Roosevelt’s likeness, and a advertisement for the dance held at the I.O.O.F. Hall in Wessington Springs featuring Louis Langbehn’s Band. Other miscellaneous items in the collection include a letter from the South Dakota State Central Committee of the Democratic Party dated September 18, 1934, a check blank from the Jerauld County Bank (Wessington Springs, S.D.) and other notes. The items were transferred from the University of Nebraska at Omaha Criss Library and Archives.
