Anderson, while he was the Secretary of the Cardston District U.F.A; as well as various farming booklets on the topics of seeds, irrigation and forest conditions; and panoramic photos from Annual Conventions for the United Farmers of Alberta and the United Grain Growers.
Administrative History
Thomas A. Anderson was a U.F.A. member who served as Secretary for the Cardston District Local in the 1920s. Along with his brother, Thomas journeyed from Utah to Canada, arriving in the Cardston, Alberta area in 1897. Their father, Johannes Anderson, had arrived prior to then as one of the area's first settlers and Thomas’s wife, Mary Jane, had arrived with her family in 1892. Thomas established a family homestead in 1900. In 1912, the Anderson family moved into Cardston for the children to attend school, but continued to farm their homestead. Thomas remained in Cardston for the duration of his life, passing away in April of 1948. The Anderson farm, which had grown to 320 acres, was deeded to his wife Mary Jane.

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.
