- Willamette Baptist Young Peoples' Association (Organization)
The Willamette Baptist Young Peoples' Association was active in northwestern Oregon in the early 1900s. Its members represented youth groups from churches in the Portland, Hillsboro, Astoria and Oregon City areas. It usually held meetings about twice per year, and featured talks on youth and faith issues, musical programs and elections. In 1916, the Willamette Baptist Young Peoples' Association formally merged with the Portland Baptist Young Peoples' Association; they kept the former organization's name. In the years following the merger, up to 120 people attended the meetings.
