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).
Administrative History
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 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.

Scope and Content
File consists of newspaper clippings, essays, and other documents relating to Irene Parlby, including a brochure for her funeral, select United Farm Women of Alberta President's Reports (copied), a paper on the resignation of Parlby as president of the U.F.W.A., and "The Milestones of My Life" written by Parlby for The Canadian Magazine.
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 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.

The fonds consists of the constitution and bylaws, minutes, annual financial reports and other documents of the Wetaskiwin Co-op Refineries Limited, and the constitution and bylaws of Wetaskiwin U.F.A. Co-operative Association Limited.
Administrative History
In 1916 several United Farmers of Alberta locals in the Wetaskiwin district organized a bulk goods purchasing consortium, the Westaskiwin District Association of the United Farmers of Alberta. In 1917 it was incorporated as the Wetaskiwin U.F.A. Co-operative Association Limited. In 1931 it established an oil refinery, but apparently it was not capitalized enough to operate on a competitive scale. In 1936 Wetaskiwin Co-op Refineries Limited was incorporated for the purpose of manufacturing and dealing in petroleum products. It never succeeded in building a refinery, but in 1937 it opened a fuel outlet in Wetaskiwin. In 1999 its assets were transferred to the UFA Co-op.

Administrative History
Local and regional units of the United Farmers of Alberta (U.F.A.) began organizing consumer co-ops for farmers in the 1910s. The Co-operative Committee of the U.F.A. was established in 1930 to coordinate these efforts. In 1932 the U.F.A. Central Co-operative Association Ltd. (U.F.A. Central Co-op) was incorporated as a subsidiary of the U.F.A., for the purposes of coordinating wholesaling and marketing. By 1935 it entered into a contractual relationship with Maple Leaf Petroleum Ltd. to market gasoline and petroleum products to members, through a network of rural service stations. By 1940 the co-op established a central office, warehouse, and retail outlet in the 100 block 11th Avenue SE in Calgary. By the mid-1940s the U.F.A. Central Co-op had sufficient capital to operate a network of hardware and grocery stores and service stations with a presence in most regions of Alberta. Norman F. Priestley was General Manager of U.F.A. Central Co-op during its active period. In December 1948 the U.F.A. changed its name to United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Association Ltd. (UFA Co-op), and amended its Bylaws to permit it to function as a cooperative wholesaler, distributor, and marketing organization. It took over most of the functions of the U.F.A. Central Co-op. In January 1949 the advocacy function of the former U.F.A. amalgamated with the Alberta Farmers' Union to form the Farmers' Union of Alberta. The U.F.A. Central Co-op continued to act as a subsidiary of the United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Association for the purpose of maintaining its contractual obligations. It also convened annual conferences of delegates representing local and regional farmers' consumer co-ops. By 1966 most of the local co-ops were amalgamated into a centralized organization, and the U.F.A. Central Co-op dissolved.
