Milton Ward was a true Alberta pioneer, an energetic initiator in the cooperative movement. He organized a cooperative oil pool at Arrowwood which eventually developed into the United Farmers of Alberta Cooperative Association. He was instrumental in gaining public support for the creation of the Alberta Wheat Pool in the 1920's, and was an original contract signer and delegate with the Pool. An active member of many agriculture associations, Mr. Ward also served as a Councillor and Reeve in the Municipal District of Marquis for 26 years, where he helped to organize the first consolidated school in Alberta.
