May 17, 1907.  The Northern Baptist Convention was organized at Calvary Baptist Church in Washington, DC.  A general meeting of all Baptist societies was called, and the American Baptist Home Mission Society, the American Baptist Publication Society and the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society responded. They formed a voluntary organization named the Northern Baptist Convention.  ABHS holds the records of these societies (and others), and the American Baptist Quarterly published a chronology of the denomination in 1995.
