Documents

Samples of historic documents from the Records of the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union are featured on this page. Volume 1, Number 4 of the Colorado Union Farmer, dated March 28, 1919, is the earliest issue of this publication preserved in the collection. It is reproduced here in its entirety, allowing public perusal of its contents without damage to the fragile pages.

Also included are sample pages from the minutes of the governing board of the Farmers' Educational and Cooperative Union of Colorado (also known as the Colorado Farmers Union) and a list of the first seven local units of the National Farmers Union organized in Colorado, in 1907. This list, copied by hand in 1957 from historic records of the national organization in order to prepare a program commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, has itself become a historic document.
