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.
