Edith Koivisto became involved in numerous choral groups and theatrical productions soon after her arrival from Finland. Especially during the period from 1915 through the early 1920s she was very active as both actor and director in numerous plays produced by various groups. She also performed as a singer and director of various choruses. She continued to act as a chorus director until 1940.
Writing was another favorite activity of Edith Koivisto. During the 1940s, she published frequently in the local Hibbing papers and in the Cooperative Builder. She had her own gardening column in the Hibbing Tribune and the Cooperative Builder as well as a column called "Good Books and Common Sense" in the Cooperative Builder. She also wrote numerous plays in both Finnish and English and translated Carmen into Finnish. Her plays are generally one- or two-act plays and include radio plays and skits. One of her plays, "Paavo ja Agadonna," won a prize in the Northern States Co-op Guilds Play Contest in 1936. She continued her writing in the 1950s with "The Pledge - History of the Finnish Temperance Movement in Hibbing from 1895-1957" (1958) and "Hibbing ja Hibbingin Suomalaiset" ("History of the Finns and the Village of Hibbing," 1957). The former was commissioned by the Sovinto Temperance Society of Hibbing and the latter by the Minnesota Finnish-American Historical Society, Duluth. Edith Koivisto was also involved with the writing of the Minnesotan Suomalaisten Historia (History of the Finns in Minnesota) edited by Hans R. Wasastjerna. She contributed articles to many Finnish American newspapers and periodicals such as Siirtokansan Kalenteri and Kalevainen.
In the late 1940s, Edith Koivisto tried her hand at painting and had her first one-woman show in 1950. During the 1950s and 1960s she had approximately twenty such exhibits, most of them in the Hibbing Public Library. Edith Koivisto also participated in more than thirty group shows, not only in Hibbing but as far away as New York City. She won numerous prizes for her works.and presented paintings to Presidents Truman and Kennedy. She was president of the Hibbing Art Center in 1951-52 and was very active in that organization for many years. Koivisto was also a leading member of the Hibbing Tuesday Musicale and other civic and social organizations in Hibbing.
In the midst of all these other activities, Edith Koivisto found time to attend classes at Hibbing Junior College (1933-35, 1953-55) and to travel. In 1959, she was invited to Finland to attend the 57th Congress of the General Cooperative Union. She spent the summer of 1959 in Finland and wrote a series of articles for the Tyovaen Osuustoimintalehti about her trip.
Mrs. Koivisto's husband died in 1964, and their only daughter, Armida
Caird, died nine years later. Edith Koivisto died in Hibbing, Minnesota,
on December 22, 1981.

Since the Edith Koivisto Papers had no apparent order as received, the materials were separated into two major divisions consisting of her creative work and her organizational activities. Her creative activities were further subdivided into 1) creative writing such as plays, newspaper columns, and magazine articles, and 2) historical writing such as her history of Hibbing's temperance societies and her biographies of people within the I.W.W. The bulk of the collection deals with her organizational activities, which were divided into four categories, the largest section being on the Minnesota Finnish-American Historical Society and Cooperative Central Wholesale. Her history of the Finns in Hibbing was included in the section on the historical society because it was one of many manuscripts that went into the preparation of the society's history of the Finns in Minnesota.
The resulting organization has eight general categories:
I. Biographical materials and personal correspondence (folders 1-22)
II. Creative writing (folders 23-55)
III. Historical writing (folders 56-82)
IV. Organizational activity (folders 83-95)
V. Minnesota Finnish-American Historical Society (folders 96-106)
VI. Northern Minnesota Finnish Midsummer Festivals (folders 107-129)
VII. Cooperative activity (folders 130-155)
VIII. Miscellaneous published materials and photographs (folders 156-167)
IX. Legal-length material
The materials in this section deal with the personal aspects of Edith Koivisto's life. Her diary, travel journal, college attendance, banking transactions, war ration books, personal correspondence, and scrapbooks are included. There are also captioned photographs from the first years of her marriage. (1-22)
This section is organized around Koivisto's creative writings. She wrote many plays, both in Finnish and in English, and translated a number of dramas from English into Finnish. In addition, she wrote numerous articles and stories for a variety of publications. Also included are the writings she did for various Finnish publications as well as the essays she wrote for creative writing classes at Hibbing Junior College. (23-55)
Edith Koivisto collected historical data on Finnish Americans who were active in the I.W.W. movement at the turn of the century. The biographies and obituaries as well as personal memoirs in this section also provide a description of the Work People's College. This section also contains the research notes and manuscript of an organizational history she wrote entitled, "The Pledge - A History of the Finnish Temperance Movement of Hibbing from 1895-1957." (56-82)
The materials in this section reflect Edith Koivisto's participation in cultural and civic organizations such as art societies, choral groups, the parent-teacher association, and women's lodges. (83-95)
Edith Koivisto was part of the Minnesota Finnish-American Historical Society from its beginning. This section contains articles, newspaper clippings, and correspondence which chronicle the formation and development of the society. Also included are research materials, notes, and manuscripts documenting her contribution to the preparation of the Society's History of the Finns in Minnesota. (96-106)
For many years Edith Koivisto was active organizing committees for Northern Minnesota Finnish Midsummer Festivals. This section contains programs, minutes, notes and correspondence which describe the festivals between 1922 and 1958. (107-129)
Edith and Arvid Koivisto were active for many years in the Finnish cooperative movement. At various times, both worked for the Cooperative Central Exchange in Superior. This section includes minutes, reports, financial records, and newspaper clippings which deal with various aspects of co-op activity. (130-155)
This section contains miscellaneous photographs,
published materials, and newspaper clippings. Of particular interest
is Lauri Lemberg's historical novel, St. Croix Avenue, about Finns
in Duluth at the turn of the century. (156-167)
