Scope and Content
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.

Custodial History
Milton Henry "Milt" Ward, 1890-1994, was born in Nogies Creek, Ontario. In 1905 he migrated with his family to Arrowwood, a community east of High River, Alberta. He assisted his father, and established his own homestead in the district at an early age. He also worked as a ranch hand and blacksmith. He became a manager in the Crowsnest Pass coal mining industry during the First World War, but returned to farming and ranching in the Arrowwood district. He served on the council of the Municipal District of Marquis from 1916 to 1941. He was an active member of the United Farmers of Alberta, serving as a director from 1932 to 1969, a delegate to the Alberta Wheat Pool, and a director of the Arrowwood Co-operative Association. In 1977 he was inducted into the Alberta Agriculture Hall of Fame. He was married twice, to Lena Steiner, ?-1923, and to Myrtle Foreman, 1903-1995. He had six children: Ruby Della (Fletcher), Audrey Helen (Neubauer), Shirley Margaret (Hood), Jack Foreman, George Alan, and Beverly Joan (Weeks).
