Nathan B. Pierson Collection

 Collection
Identifier: MS-30
This collection of four folders focuses on three themes: marriage licenses “to be retained by the person performing the ceremony”; funeral services and obituaries, and Quaker pamphlets. Nathan Benbow Pierson’s pastoral ministry was in Kansas, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. The certificates and funerals are documents from the various locations where he and his wife Hazel ministered. The retention of the Quaker documents illustrate his valuation of their teachings.
