Equity Cooperative Exchange papers, 1906-1929.


Equity Cooperative Exchange papers, 1906-1929.

Papers kept by Minneapolis lawyer Benjamin B. Drake, documenting his service as attorney for the Equity Cooperative Exchange (ECE, 1906-1926), a cooperative agency established, owned, and operated by farmers to sell grain directly to consumers. Organized in 1907, the ECE was incorporated in North Dakota in 1911 and Minnesota in 1912. It moved to St. Paul in 1914 and, in 1923, due to financial and management problems, went into receivership. It was absorbed by the Farmers' Union in 1926.
