    Administrative history

    The Chalmers Presbyterian Church was established circa 1909-1910 in the Calder and Elm Park areas of north Edmonton. The congregation existed until 1925 when it joined the United Church of Canada, a union of Methodist, Presbyterian, and Congregational denominations, and was reconstituted as Chalmers United Church.

    Chalmers United Church existed until 1994 when it was amalgamated with Castle Downs United Church to form the new congregation of Chalmers-Castle Downs United Church.

    Custodial history

    Records deposited under accession number PR1975.0387 were acquired sometime prior to 1975 however there is no surviving record of the details.

    Scope and content

    The fonds consists of correspondence (1910-1925); Board of Managers records (1913-1925); list of births (1910-1916); Ladies' Aid records (1917-1925); First World War Roll of Honour (1919); and a map of a Calder subdivision (1909).

    Physical condition

    Immediate source of acquisition

    In 1975, the Conference entered into a permanent loan agreement with the Provincial Archives of Alberta (PAA) for the physical custody and control of the holdings of the Conference Archives and the records were relocated to the PAA in that same year. Records received after 1975 have come from the congregation, church members, or officers of the presbytery or the Conference. Jean McKinley deposited the materials constituting PR1996.0388 on behalf of Chalmers-Castle Downs United Church on April 12, 1996.


    The materials have been arranged chronologically and in accordance with the congregational series arrangement plan.
