    Two photographs of Dr. Jeffrey Fowler, a Blind cardiologist at Jewish Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, walking with his service dog Dottie and reading scans while Dottie sits beside him. Dr. Fowler had average vision as a child, but his eyes gradually deteriorated from a genetic condition called retinitis pigmentosa. He stopped driving around 1964, during his second year of medical school. At the suggestion of a nurse who bred Akitas, Fowler acquired Dottie in 1991. Dottie went through obedience and behavior training in California and Ohio and was put into service in mid-1992. In 1994, Dottie won an annual service-dog award from the Delta Society (now called Pet Partners).

    Members of a Sunday school operated by the German St. Peter's Evangelical Church formed the West Louisville Evangelical Church in 1915. The congregation built a church in the Shawnee neighborhood at 245 South 41st Street in 1916. A new sanctuary was constructed circa 1926-1927. In 1957, the church changed its name to the West Louisville United Church of Christ. In 1986, the West Louisville United Church of Christ closed due to declining membership, in part because of white flight from West Louisville, and problems maintaining the property. The remaining congregation became members of the historically Black Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ.

    This register contains entries for marriages, baptisms, confirmations, attendance at communion services, and deaths from 1916-1945. Members' attendance at communion services is also recorded for 1964-1966. Loose inserts in the ledger include a 1935 license to solemnize marriages for Rev. C. T. Rausch, a 1968 request for a baptism record, undated genealogy notes, and a 1992 Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ bulletin.
