The fonds consists of two letters and two agreements concerning the leasing and insuring of the Clover Bar Hall (1930-1932); the minute book of the Local, including membership records and financial records (1951-1973); sales and stock report of the Maple Leaf Petroleums agency in Bremner (1935-1936); membership list (1962); correspondence and financial records (1956-1975); and a topographical map of the Edmonton district annotated to show coal prospects (1926).
Clover Bar was a farming district in Strathcona County, just east of the city of Edmonton, Alberta. A local organization of the United Farmers of Alberta, Clover Bar U.F.A. Local No. 90, existed before 1915. East Clover Bar U.F.A Local No. 3 and Clover Bar U.F.W.A. Local No. 40 were the local organizations in 1930. By 1951 Clover Bar F.U.A. Local No. 608 was established. In 1970 it became the Clover Bar Unifarm Local 6208. Apparently it became inactive around 1975.
The fonds consists of the 1928 Certificate of Incorporation, Memorandum of Association, quarterly and annual financial statements, minutes of annual meetings (1926-1949) with lists of shareholders, share certificates issued to shareholders, agreements, and instructions to mailing room staff.
The official newspaper of the United Farmers of Alberta, The U.F.A., began publication in March 1922. W. Norman Smith was its editor. Initially publication was supervised by a committee of the United Farmers of Alberta, but in 1928 "The U.F.A." Limited was incorporated under the Companies Act of Alberta to allow the newspaper to operate with legal independence. The U.F.A. was renamed The United Farmer in 1934 and ceased publication in 1936. A subsequent publication of the United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Association, 1962-1985, was also titled The United Farmer. The officers of the United Farmers of Alberta generally were concurrently officers of The U.F.A. Limited. The company apparently wound up its affairs in 1949.
File consists of convention programs, "Policy Sheets and Supplementary Resolutions" and a "Report of the Committee to Obtain the Facts on a proposed Amalgamation of the U.F.A. Co-op and A.C.W.A." (copy) presented at the F.U.A. convention by President A. Platt.
