Historical Information:

On August 25-29, 1955, the Biennial Conference of the AUA and UCA, held in conjunction with the Council of Liberal Churches, was held at Wayne University in Detroit, Michigan. It was at this meeting that the delegates decided that a federal union was no longer desirable, and that the two organizations should merge. That year, a Joint Commission on Merger, consisting of six persons from each denomination, was formed. This commission was charged with guiding a study process which would culminate in a final vote by delegates in October of 1959 and a celebration in 1960 if it were approved
