Scope and Content
The file consists of lists of U.F.A. Locals photocopied from the 1915 and 1916 annual reports of the U.F.A.; list of old U.F.A. Locals (ca. 1960-1966) arranged by sub-district, with names and addresses of their secretaries; names and addresses of delegates and directors; and a printout (1965) listing the Locals in alphabetical order.
Administrative History
Locals of the U.F.A. were grouped into sub-districts which elected delegates. The delegates elected a director from each district of the U.F.A. They also attended the annual conference of the U.F.A Central Co-operative Association. This structure remained in place after the reorganization of the U.F.A. in 1948-1949, but ceased to exist upon the winding up of U.F.A. Central Co-op in 1966.

Administrative History
The Farmers’ Union of Alberta was established on January 14, 1949 when the United Farmers of Alberta and the Alberta Farmers’ Union amalgamated. It ceased to exist in January 1970 when it amalgamated with the Alberta Federation of Agriculture; the new organization was known as Unifarm. Members of the United Farmers of Alberta and the Alberta Farmers’ Union held a joint meeting in January 1949 to finalize the details of the new organization they were about to form. The new organization, the Farmers’ Union of Alberta (FUA), was to be non-partisan, and the constitution proposed their objectives as being: to advance the interests of farmers and farmers’ co-operative organizations; to coordinate the efforts of the various branches of agriculture to promote their common interests through collective action; to promote and secure necessary and just legislation; to achieve a relationship of price which would ensure agriculture its fair share of national income; to contribute to a high standard of living for all citizens by promoting the highest production over a long period commensurate with sound agricultural practices; to promote social interaction, a higher standard of community life and the study of economic and social questions relating to agriculture and democratic citizenship; and to promote the fullest possible use of credit unions. The Farmers’ Union of Alberta was incorporated under the Societies Act (R.S.A. 1942, chapter 245) on July 6, 1949, with the objective of advancing the interests of farmers and farmers’ co-operative organizations. Plans to amalgamate with the Alberta Federation of Agriculture had been proposed as early as 1952. In 1964, members of the FUA resolved to enter into plans and negotiations aimed at achieving a more efficient and unified farm organization. Two possible options were to amalgamate either with the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) or with the Alberta Federation of Agriculture (AFA). In 1968 under the new leadership of Roy Atkinson, the NFU’s objectives and direction changed, and many FUA members were uncomfortable with the refocused organization. When the restructured National Farmers’ Union held its founding convention in Winnipeg, Manitoba in July 1969, the FUA did not pass the necessary resolution to join, the only provincial organization to do so. Subsequently, the FUA and the AFA drafted a constitution in 1969. At the December 9, 1969 meeting of the FUA, delegates were presented with two options: to dissolve and accept the NFU constitution, or to amalgamate with the AFA; of the 11,178 registered delegates, 946 voted against the NFU proposal, and 947 in favour of amalgamation with AFA. The Farmers’ Union of Alberta was created on January 14, 1949 when the United Farmers of Alberta and the Alberta Farmers’ Union amalgamated. These two groups had attempted to amalgamate for a number of years. The United Farmers of Alberta had also considered amalgamation with the Alberta Federation of Agriculture; an amalgamation with the AFA finally occurred in 1970 when it merged with the Farmers’ Union of Alberta. The Farmers’ Union of Alberta amalgamated in January 1970 with Alberta Federation of Agriculture. The new organization that resulted was Unifarm. Unifarm was reorganized as the Wild Rose Agricultural Producers in 1996. Farm Women’s Union of Alberta worked in parallel to the FUA. The FWUA had a certain degree of autonomy, and had its own executive. Also working in parallel was the Junior FUA. Like the United Farmers of Alberta and the Alberta Farmers’ Union, the FUA was comprised of a number of locals throughout the province. Many of these locals were a continuation of those from the previous farm organizations. Unlike the UFA locals, a large component of which had been its social activities, the FUA locals were more concerned with policy development at the larger district and regional organizations. Presidents of the Farmers’ Union of Alberta: Carl Stimpfle, 1949-1950; Henry Young, 1950-1955; Arnold Platt, 1955-1958; Ed Nelson, 1958-1963; Paul Babey, 1963-1970 (Information obtained from the Provincial Archives of Alberta (FUA fonds administrative history) and from the following books that can be found in the UFHS reference library - Furrow, Faith and Fellowship and Unifarm: A Story of Conflict & Change.)
Custodial History
Several records are inscribed with the name Margaret House or Mrs. F.H. House. Many records relate to FUA District 12. New Fonds was created for FUA records, and new records from various donors will be added to the collection.

Administrative History
Associated with the execu­tive and administrative capaci­ties of United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative Ltd., Mr. Norman F. Priestley retired in January 1951. A member of a family from Yorkshire, England, who had been active in the consumer co-operative movement origi­nated by the Rochdale Pio­neers, Mr. Priestley came to Edmonton early in the century and homesteaded at Onoway, 40 miles northwest of the city. In 1904, the organization of farm people in defence of their industry was just beginning. From that early period onward, Mr. Priestley missed no oppor­tunity to contribute to its de­velopment. He graduated from the University of Alberta with his Bachelor of Arts in 1916 and then enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. On re­turning from overseas, he was ordained to the Methodist Ministry. For many years, he was vice-president of the Leth­bridge UFA Federal Constitu­ency Association. Engaging in research work at Lethbridge, he became acting secretary in the Alberta Institute of Co­operation. Under the Canada Wheat Board Surplus Trust Fund, he produced a brochure on co-operation for the schools of agriculture. In January, 1931, Mr. Priest­ley was elected as vice-presi­dent of United Farmers of Alberta. In 1940, he resigned as vice-president in order to de­vote his time to the general management of the business. He remained in this position until his retirement in 1951 (from The United Farmer 1976 January-February Page 4).
