The fonds consists of the minute book used by the Onoway U.F.A. Local No. 131 (1924-1942) and Onoway F.U.A. Local No. 527, with membership list (1949-1950); the account book (1919-1935); journal (1926-1936); and cheque book (1933-1934).
Onoway U.F.A. Local No. 131 was organized in the 1910s. By 1919 it was pooling its members' economic resources by shipping livestock and purchasing bulk quantities of feed, coal, and twine. The Local apparently became inactive in 1942. In 1949 some former members organized the Onoway F.U.A. Local No. 527, a Local of the Farmers' Union of Alberta. This organization apparently became inactive in 1950.
