Archival description area
Records were donated to the Agricola Archives, Special Collections and Museum in the Summer of 2004 (accession A2004-001 / 2004CP) Most of the materials in the collection have been donated by key individuals and organizations that have been active in the co-operative movement in Atlantic Canada. Major contributors have been George LaBelle, Paddy Moran, Fred Pierce, the NS Co-operatives Branch and the NS Cooperative Council.
Scope and content
Collection consists of records with information about individual co-operatives and credit unions in Atlantic Canada, as well as documents from larger region-wide co-operative organizations. There is also a large section of general co-operative literature about co-operation as a social movement, in Canada and around the world. There are published books, serials, brochures, reports, photographs and slides, maps, audio and visual material, and artifacts. The age of the materials ranges from the early 1900s up to 2002, the majority spans from the 1950s to the 1990s.
Immediate source of acquisition
During processing, the Archives imposed thematic and chronological order on the records, whose original order was not consistent.
