More InformationShow full item record
The club, organized in 1954 and located northeastern North Dakota, is devoted to garden interests, especially the Pioneer Memorial Gardens at Homme Recreation Area in Walsh County, N.D. The club records include Constitution and Bylaws, Treasurer’s Records, Project Plans, Subject Files, and Scrapbooks. One note are the scrapbooks, from 1980 and later, that follow the political career of one of the club members, Rosemarie Myrdal, former Lieutenant Governor of North Dakota. The other set of scrapbooks (1968-1976) were formal books organized for the purpose of winning awards and recognition for the club. The scrapbooks from 1971 to 1976 are each adorned with a hand-painted porcelain medallion. One of the images is the state seal of the North Dakota Federation of Garden Clubs, which was designed by a member of the Agassiz Garden Club, Agnes Sticha.
