The fonds consists of two letters and two agreements concerning the leasing and insuring of the Clover Bar Hall (1930-1932); the minute book of the Local, including membership records and financial records (1951-1973); sales and stock report of the Maple Leaf Petroleums agency in Bremner (1935-1936); membership list (1962); correspondence and financial records (1956-1975); and a topographical map of the Edmonton district annotated to show coal prospects (1926).
Clover Bar was a farming district in Strathcona County, just east of the city of Edmonton, Alberta. A local organization of the United Farmers of Alberta, Clover Bar U.F.A. Local No. 90, existed before 1915. East Clover Bar U.F.A Local No. 3 and Clover Bar U.F.W.A. Local No. 40 were the local organizations in 1930. By 1951 Clover Bar F.U.A. Local No. 608 was established. In 1970 it became the Clover Bar Unifarm Local 6208. Apparently it became inactive around 1975.

Scope and Content
The fonds consists of annual convention programs of the Saskatchewan Grain Growers' Association, bound into one volume. The programs include the presidents' addresses; reports of the Board, the Executive, the Women's Section and the Auditor; convention resolutions; portraits; and statistical compilations of membership of each local association.
The Territorial Grain Growers' Association was founded in 1901, with William Motherwell as its first president. In 1906 the organization was renamed the Saskatchewan Grain Growers' Association while the Alberta members formed the Alberta Farmers' Association. In 1926 the organization merged with the Farmers' Union of Canada to form the United Farmers of Canada (Saskatchewan Section).
The file includes minutes, resolutions, financial records, and membership lists of the Cloverbar 208 local of the Farmer's Union of Alberta from 1951 to 1970 and the Clover Bar 6208 local of Unifarm from 1970 to 1973.
The file consists of carbon copies of weekly sales and stock reports submitted to Maple Leaf Petroleums Ltd. The reports were compiled on large pre-printed ledger sheets by the agent, Martin L. Reynolds, who was also an active member of the Clover Bar U.F.A. Local.
