The Daughters of Dakota Pioneers began in 1934 as the Fargo Chapter of the Pioneer Daughters of North Dakota and later became an independent organization. It was founded to honor the memory and spirit of the women pioneers in North Dakota, to perpetuate and preserve the history of North Dakota and to promote interest in the resources and activities of North Dakota. It includes its meeting minutes, yearbooks and scrapbooks. The four scrapbooks contain items from 1936 through 2003, but there are very few items before 1960. They include newspaper clippings of accomplishments, obituaries, engagements and marriages of members and member’s kin, as well as articles about the organization’s activities and events. They also contain many clippings and articles pertaining to local history and especially to events at Bonanzaville.
