Name of creator
The Canadian Wheat Board was created in 1919, as a result of the need to secure a price for Canadian Wheat in domestic and international markets. During the war years the prices for Canadian wheat had been fixed. James Stewart, appointed commissioner of the Wheat Board, secured an optimum price for wheat on behalf of Canadian farmers.
The contents of the fonds were passed from commissioner James Stewart to his son Ewen, whose children presented it to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in memory of their father and grandfather.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of copies of minutes, various certificates, one minute book containing signed Board minutes, and one minute book containing signed Executive Committee minutes.
