Scope and Content
This volume records copies of Articles of Incorporation filed with the Duchesne County Clerk by newly organized corporations. The register was 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 current Utah law and the laws of the territorial legislature, 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 certificate of incorporation and recorded the final articles of incorporation in these record books. This practice ended in 1961 when the Division of Corporations was created.
