Fonds contains records about the National Radio Farm Forum, a national rural listening-discussion group project. Records relate to the operations of the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick regions and consist of pamphlets, scripts, correspondence, memos, newsletters, guides, National Secretaries report, annual reports from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick regions, and minutes from the regional and national meetings and conferences from 1937-1965. Also included is an account of the activity of the Earltown, Nova Scotia Farm Forum Radio Group from the period of 1961-1962.
National Radio Farm Forum 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.
