National Farm Radio Forum fonds

  • MS-14-34
  • Fonds
  • 1937-1965
This fonds contains records about the National Radio Farm Forum, including the operations of the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick regions. Records consists of pamphlets, correspondence, memos, guides, annual reports and minutes from the regional and national meetings and conferences, 2 booklets, and an account of the activity of the Earltown, Nova Scotia Farm Forum Radio Group from the period of 1961-1962. Some of the records were created and collected by Longly and C.A. Douglas, as well as regional secretary Rosemary Campbell. It was a national rural listening-discussion group project sponsored by the Canadian Association for Adult Education, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture and CBC. Initially, this program was a dramatized discussion of farm problems in wartime, arranged in cooperation with the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, and the Canadian Association for Adult Education. Eventually, it evolved into discussions by individuals from various communities across the country. The program was developed by Orville Shugg and Neil Morrison. http://www.cotra.ca/farming.htm http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/farm-radio-forum/
