Biographical history

School teachers in the Red Deer region became members of the Alberta Teachers' Association with the proclamation of the Teaching Profession Act (1935) and soon set up a local association which encompassed public and separate school teachers in the Red Deer region. There may have been an earlier local in Red Deer of the Alberta Teachers' Alliance, ca. 1917-1934. The Red Deer Local appears to have been divided initially into 2 sub-locals to represent the diverse interests of teachers of the public and separate school systems. In Sept. 1954, a new sub-local was established to represent the elementary and junior high school teachers in Red Deer Public School District No. 104. In 1958, the sub-local was converted into Red Deer City Local No. 60. It represents the interests of teachers within the City of Red Deer. The Red Deer District Local No. 24 represented the teachers in the surrounding rural districts. The teachers of Red Deer Separate School District No. 17 became a sub-local of Local No. 60 in 1968 (they received their own local, Red Deer Separate School Local No. 80 at a later date). Red Deer City Local No. 60 of the Alberta Teachers' Association continues to operate

Custodial history

Records maintained in the office of the Local. After the loss of the office by fire in 1970, the surviving records of the Local were salvaged and preserved by the Red Deer Public School District No. 104, then given to Michael Dawe in 1979
