SERIES 6: EVENT FILES, ca. 1888-1989, 8.5 cubic ft.

Boxes 319-329

This series consists of event-specific files and plays. The event-specific files are arranged alphabetically and include programs, readings, and souvenirs that correspond to the event. Of particular interest are the Solar and Lunar Festival files. The Solar Festival honored Cyrus Teed's birthday (October 18, 1839) and was held yearly in mid-October. The Lunar Festival was a mid-April gathering that commemorated the birth of Annie G. Ordway (Victoria Gratia). The Solar and Lunar Festivals were celebrated both in Chicago and Estero, and the files provide insight into the social aspects of the Unity from its early stages to the late 1980s.

The plays are arranged alphabetically by title. The files include a wide range of scripts, script edits, and musical accompaniment used by the Unity for entertainment throughout their history. Some of the plays were created by Koreshan members, while others are mainstream productions. The plays cover a myriad of subjects, ranging from historical reenactments of the Koreshan Unity to popular culture and politics.
