The Pleasant Prairie Academy Archives document the corporate institutional life of a regional academy (high school) of the Reformed Church in America based in Illinois from the last years of the 19th century through the first half of the 20th. The records include the Articles of Incorporation, deeds, minutes of the faculty, photographs, newspaper clippings, financial materials, student records, historical pamphlets, and correspondence. Collectively, these archives provide evidence for the multigenerational growth and acculturation of a German-speaking, Reformed-affiliated Ostfriesian group of Midwestern settlers.
