Abstract:

Records of an group which promoted economic cooperation among farmers, lobbying for agricultural programs, education for members, and youth programs. Some of the services established by the WFU are the Farmers Union Central Exchange (CENEX), the Farmers Grain Terminal Association, the Farmers Union Livestock Association, and the Farmers Union Insurance Corporation.

Consisting of correspondence and a subject file, the records document the administration, policies, and political stances of both the national and state organizations. Very few records predate 1942. The materials include copies of records from the national organization such as financial records, minutes, reports, speeches of President James Patton, position papers, and press releases.

Information is present on the organization's relationship with the American Dairy Association of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Association of Cooperatives, its lobbying activities, youth programs, charges of communist sympathies within the organization, its service organizations, and other topics.

Prominent correspondents include Kenneth W. Hones, Merlin Hull, Lester Johnson, Melvin R. Laird, Joseph R. McCarthy, Gilbert Rohde, Alexander Wiley, John Chester Baker, Tony Dechant, Gladys Talbott Edwards, Reuben Johnson, James G. Patton, Russell Smith, Benton Strong, Vernon Thompson, John Reynolds, and Gaylord Nelson.

The processed portion of this collection is summarized above and is described in the register. Additional accessions are described below.
