File consists of photographs and negatives: b&w, portraits of Norman F. Priestley, UFA Director and General Manager.
Administrative History
Associated with the execu­tive and administrative capaci­ties of United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Ltd., Mr. Norman F. Priestley retired in January 1951. A member of a family from Yorkshire, England, who had been active in the consumer co-operative movement origi­nated by the Rochdale Pio­neers, Mr. Priestley came to Edmonton early in the century and homesteaded at Onoway, 40 miles northwest of the city. In 1904, the organization of farm people in defence of their industry was just beginning. From that early period onward, Mr. Priestley missed no oppor­tunity to contribute to its de­velopment. He graduated from the University of Alberta with his Bachelor of Arts in 1916 and then enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. On re­turning from overseas, he was ordained to the Methodist Ministry. For many years, he was vice-president of the Leth­bridge UFA Federal Constitu­ency Association. Engaging in research work at Lethbridge, he became acting secretary in the Alberta Institute of Co­operation. Under the Canada Wheat Board Surplus Trust Fund, he produced a brochure on co-operation for the schools of agriculture. In January, 1931, Mr. Priest­ley was elected as vice-presi­dent of United Farmers of Alberta. In 1940, he resigned as vice-president in order to de­vote his time to the general management of the business. He remained in this position until his retirement in 1951 (from The United Farmer 1976 January-February Page 4).

Scope and Content
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.
