Fonds consists of financial reports, annual reports, and bylaws pertaining to the Alberta Co-operative Wholesale Association, as well as speeches and pamphlets related to A.C.W.A.’s attempt to amalgamate with the UFA.
Administrative History
Alberta Co-operative Wholesale Association Ltd. (A.C.W.A.) was incorporated in 1928 by several local consumer co-ops, for the purpose of improving efficiency through large-scale purchasing and warehousing. In 1938 it reorganized, and was owned by 9 local co-ops. It expanded rapidly, and by 1951 it managed 56 co-op stores by arrangement with their local boards of directors. By 1958 it managed over 100 stores. It dealt in groceries, hardware, dry goods, lumber, coal, petroleum products, fertilizers, feeds, and farm supplies. The A.C.W.A. was headquartered in Edmonton, and J. Russel Love was its President from the 1940s to 1961. Negotiations to amalgamate A.C.W.A. with UFA Co-op were undertaken in 1958, but was unsuccessful due to differences in strategies and financing structures. In 1961 it amalgamated with Federated Co-operatives Ltd. (FCL), a wholesaler operating in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Custodial History
Records were collected by officers of United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative who attended A.C.W.A. annual meetings.

Administrative History
Irene Parlby became involved in women's organizations in 1913 when she was appointed secretary of the Alix Country Women's Club. One of her accomplishments in this role was the founding of a local library; she had solicited the books from a newspaper advertisement and friends in England. In 1915 Irene and other members of the Alix club went on to establish the first United Farm Women of Alberta (UFWA) local in Alix. A year later Irene Parlby became president of the UFWA and then in 1919 became the first woman officer of the United Farmers of Alberta. In her inaugural report as a member of the UFA Executive Mrs. Parlby stated: "Neither men nor women know everything; women know many things that men do not know, men know many things that women do not know. Men and women together know everything that is known." In 1921, she was elected to the provincial legislature as a member of the UFA and appointed Minister without Portfolio in the new UFA government. She was the second woman in Canada to become a provincial cabinet minister. Irene Parlby was also one of the "Famous Five", the group of women who worked for suffrage, property rights and the right for women to be legally judged as "Persons" in Canada. In 1930 she was became one of three Canadian delegates to the Assembly of the League of Nations. Mrs. Parlby retired from politics in 1935.

The fonds consists of the Society's newsletter for 1944 and 1947-1951.
Administrative History
In March 1944 a group of five UFA Co-op employees began publishing a monthly staff newsletter, provisionally titled You Name It?? By 1946 the newsletter was titled UFA Sco-ops, and it was the official organ of the U.F.A. Staff Co-op Society. Doug Thornton of the Educational Department of UFA Co-op served as its editor during most of its history. The Society organized social and recreational activities and produced the newsletter. In 1949 the Society's name was changed to U.F.A. Co-op Staff Society and the newsletter's title was changed to Sco-ops. In 1951 the Society disbanded and the newsletter ceased publication. A later staff social and recreational association known as ECHO (Employees of the Co-op Head Office) existed from the 1970s onward.
Custodial History
The newsletters had been collected by Doug Thornton.

Administrative History
The United Farmers of Alberta (U.F.A.) amended its constitution in 1913 to admit women as members. In 1914 its Women's Section was formed. In 1916 the women members formed a separate organization governed by the U.F.A constitution, the United Farm Women of Alberta (U.F.W.A.). 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 until about 1945. In 1949 the U.F.W.A. was succeeded by the Farm Women's Union of Alberta.
Custodial History
Records donated by various people at various dates, spanning from 2002 to the present. In 2010, approximately two-thirds of the UFHS collection was arranged into fonds. In 2020-2021, the remainder of the unprocessed records were arranged into fonds, adding additional items to Fonds 2.
