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.
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.
The fonds consists of the minutes, membership records, and cash book of Sexsmith F.U.A. Local No. 135.
Sexsmith U.F.A. Local No. 204 was established early in the history of the United Farmers of Alberta, in the community of Sexsmith in the Peace River region of Alberta. It built a community hall sometime before 1929. In 1949, after the establishment of the Farmers' Union of Alberta, it became the Sexsmith F.U.A. Local No. 135. By 1956 the membership had dwindled, and the ability of the Local to sustain the community hall was in doubt.
File consists of a submission by the Alberta Co-operative Union to the Royal Commission On Education requesting that the school curriculum include the philosophy and principles of co-operation and the co-operative movement.
