We consider the higher regularity of a minimal submanifold $M$ in a Riemannian manifold $N$ such that $M$ is the union of submanifolds-with-boundary $M_1,…,M_q$ meeting along a common boundary $\Gamma$.  When $N$ is smooth (real-analytic), we show that $M_1,…,M_q$ and $\Gamma$ are smooth (real-analytic) submanifolds.  This result was previously proven by Kindlerher, Nirenberg, and Spruck in the special case $q = 3$ and codimension one using a partial holograph transformation.  We extend their result to all $q \geq 3$ and all codimensions.  We then apply the result to the work of Wickramasekera and Hughes on minimal submanifolds and joint work of Schultz and White on network flows.
