History / Biographical
Talk of forming a Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association to oversee the planning of an exhibition began in 1910 (Interior News, May 1910). Various names were used before incorporation, such as: Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association (Interior News, July 27, 1912), Bulkley Valley Agricultural Association and Farmer’s Institute (Omineca Herald, June 7, 1913) and Bulkley Valley Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition Association (Interior News, June 21, 1919). On July 14, 1919, the Bulkley Valley Agricultural and Industrial Association was incorporated under the Agricultural Act. The mandate of the Association was to "advance the interests of agriculture and to hold an annual exhibition of agricultural products at Smithers, and to do all such other things the directors may decide for the advancement of the association, the farmers and farming." The first directors of the Association included A. Kilpatrick (President, Smithers), J. G. Wood (Vice-President, Telkwa), and L.B. Warner (Secretary Treasurer, Smithers), George Oulton (Smithers), A. J. Prudhomme (Telkwa), E. C. Barger (Telkwa) and William S. Henry (Smithers) (Interior News, June 21, 1919). Smithers held its first Fall Fair in Albert Park, September 30th, 1919. After several years the Fair became a three-day event, presenting a wide variety of exhibits including agricultural displays, livestock and logging shows, handicraft and homemaking exhibits, stage shows, and a midway.
Custodial History
The Bulkley Valley Agricultural and Industrial Association donated various records from accession number 1971.17. Originally, records came from accession numbers 1981.6 (Town of Smithers), 1983.65 (Pat McCammon), 1944.7 (Norma Mae Zagwyn), 1994.13 (Pat McCammon) and 1998.4 (Phyllis Davidson), but for unknown reasons were all merged with accession number 1971.17 in August, 1998. Some of the Fall Fair prize lists were loaned to the Royal BC Archives in March 1979 and returned March 1979.
Scope and Content
The fonds is arranged into two series, Administrative and Fall Fair and contains prize lists, prize tickets, meeting minutes, correspondence, financial statements, entry forms, certificate of incorporation and a brief history on the founding of the fair.
Arrangement
Records were rearranged in September 2016 by Manda Haligowski to better reflect archival standards and to improve accessibility.

Description
Large wooden curved scythe blade. The metal blade is curved and tapered narrower at the end. The long, narrow blade is gently curved and angled upwards at the front, where it is shaped to a sharp point. The back of the blade is flat and smoothed, with the top edge folded towards the front. The bottom of the blade has been ground to a fine edge, but several deep nicks are evident. The back end of the blade is hook-shaped, with a small protruding tip. 'MA.....' is visible at the top back of the 'hook'. The wider end of the blade is attached to a long, curved wooden pole. The pole is curved and there are two separate wooden handle grips attached to the pole via metal fasteners.
History Of Use
Scythe used for cutting grass on the farm by hand. The earlier forms of scythes were from England and were without 'nibs' (hand grips). The handles were called 'snaths' and the nibs were made of hickory. This scythe was probably made after the late 1800's. This scythe was used on the Bayson farm on Newens Road. Fred Bayson's uncle had been farming in the late 1800's and Fred took over the farm in 1924 and farmed until 1979.

Description
A large, horse drawn breaking plow with wooden stilts and beam. There are handles made of piping fitted over the stilts and fastened with bolts. The outer sides of the stilts and the top and bottom of the beam have heavy iron reinforcements bolted to the wooden frame. There are two metal braces connecting the stilts near the top and bottom. Two additional metal braces connect the right stilt and the beam at the middle, one running diagonally across the front. The large iron plowshare ("mouldboard and share") along with the coulter, is bolted to the beam and stilts near where the tilts converge. The cutting edge ("feather") of the share is quite worn. There is a slade-like piece made of two, rectangular, thick pieces of metal positioned near the front of the beam. It is fastened to the beam with a square, tubular clip attached by bolts at the left side. The hake or bridle is bolted to the front of the beam. It is formed of a rectangular piece of cast iron folded at the tip to hold two large iron rings.
History Of Use
Breaking plow used for ploughing fields. Early farmers used a stick and then a crude hoe to dig grooves in order to plant their crops. The plough was in use as early as 1300BC. Later, the Romans used a variety of ploughs. The plough continued to evolve throughout the days of the Anglo-Saxon farming community and continued to evolve as settlers from Europe traversed to North America to settle and farm.
