SERIES: 83441
TITLE: Articles of incorporation record books
DATES: 1871-1961
ARRANGEMENT: Chronological

DESCRIPTION: These volumes record copies of Articles of Incorporation filed with the Millard County Clerk by newly organized corporations. The registers were kept as the official copy which was available for public use. The actual articles of incorporation record the following: names of the incorporators and their places of residence, the length of the corporation's duration, the pursuit of business agreed upon, amount of stock each shareholder receives, description of stock classes, number and kind of corporate officers, and the number of directors necessary to transact corporate business.

Under Utah law, individuals desiring to incorporate were to file and record articles of incorporation with their respective county clerk. These agreements specified the nature and place of business, amount of stock to be issued, terms for officers, etc. The clerk in turn issued a certificate of incorporation and recorded the final articles of incorporation in these record books. The series ended in 1961 when the Division of Corporations was created and the state assumed sole responsibility for registering incorporations.
