Biographical history

The United Farmers of Alberta was established by the merger of the Society of Equity and the Alberta Farmers Association at a joint conference in Edmonton, Alberta, in January 1909. It acted as a lobby group to press for improvements in government services offered to the farmers of Alberta. The organization became a political movement in 1919 and became the provincial government for the period 1921-1935. It ceased to be a political party in 1939; and in 1949 merged with the Alberta Farmers' Union to create the Farmers' Union of Alberta. The United Farmers of Alberta, Penhold Local No. 13 developed from the Penhold Branch of the Alberta Farmers Association, which had been established in 1907. In 1912 the name of the local organization was changed to United Farmers of Alberta, Penhold Local No. 13. Known presidents of the local were: Arthur Hives (1907-1908), E. Carswell (1909), J. P. Parcels (1910, 1912), S. Pye (1911), Mr. Smith (1918), J. E. C. Oldford (1919-1920), Ronald Pye (1921-1924)
