Scope and Content
The series consists of letters, news clippings, reports, radio addresses, convention reports, resolutions, and a canvassers' workbook from the Farmers' Union of Alberta. It includes documentation of the 1951 controversy, when some former U.F.A. members of the F.U.A. Board demanded the expulsion of former A.F.U. members who were considered to be Communists.
Administrative History
The Farmers' Union of Alberta (F.U.A.) was formed in January 1949 from the amalgamation of the advocacy and educational functions of the United Farmers of Alberta with the Alberta Farmers' Union. The United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Ltd., meanwhile, had been formed in December 1948 through the renaming and restructuring of the United Farmers of Alberta. The leaders and senior staff of UFA Co-op maintained close ties and interlocking leadership with the F.U.A. in its early years. The F.U.A. amalgamated with the Alberta Federation of Agriculture in 1970 to form Unifarm.
