Beginning in 1917 the U.F.W.A. was required to be represented on the U.F.A. Executive and Board of Directors. Irene Parlby was the first president of the U.F.W.A. The United Farm Women of Alberta Alumnae Association was a group within the organization that existed from 1933 to about 1945. In 1949 the U.F.W.A. was succeeded by the Farm Women's Union of Alberta.

The collection consists of published pamphlets, a few issues of the newsletter Wheat Pool Budget, and a promotional calendar. Includes collected books and pamphlets about the grain trade, and handbooks used by the Alberta Wheat Pool elevator agent in Falher, Alberta.
Administrative History
Alberta Co-operative Wheat Producers Ltd. was established in 1923 at the instigation of the United Farmers of Alberta. It was familiarly known as Alberta Wheat Pool, which soon became its legal name. Its members agreed to five-year contracts for grain marketing, and this gave the Pool a strong foothold in the market. Initially it contracted to use the storage and shipping facilities of other grain companies, but soon it was able to capitalize the construction of a network of elevators which eventually dominated the industry in Alberta. In 1998 it merged with Manitoba Wheat Pool to form Agricore Cooperative Ltd. In 2001 Agricore was purchased by United Grain Growers Ltd. and the new firm was branded Agricore United. In 2007 Agricore United was acquired by Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, and the new company was named Viterra Inc.
Custodial History
The materials were collected in the office of United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Ltd.
