Introduction:

In 2001, the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool donated its papers to the University of Saskatchewan Archives. The collection includes over 39 metres of textual records, 6754 slides and 2689 photographs along with hundreds of film, video and audio tapes. This site attempts to make some of the images of this vast collection more accessible to the public while also telling a part of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool’s story. It is a joint effort of  The Centre for the Study of Co-operatives  and the  University of Saskatchewan Archives  and hopes to illustrate the strong social role of the Pool in Saskatchewan communities, as well as its economic and political importance to producers.
