List of Stockholders and Shares. Consumers Co-operative Association, Astoria, Oregon


The booklet that these names came from is located at the Clatsop County Historical Society, 1618 Exchange, Astoria, OR 97103.

The Co-op operated a dairy. It was incorporated in March 1927 by Karl Hakola, Jacob Kesti and Richard Wirkkunen. The Co-op continued in operation many years. The Depression brought problems to the dairy. When the Communist-run Youngs Bay Co-operative Dairy kept the price of milk it sold down to 5 cents a quart, the Consumer's Co-operative followed suit. In spite of various forms of coercion by competing dairies that could not continue to operate at that price, both companies refused to raise their prices. Violence ensued with the bombing of the Young's Bay Co-operative Dairy. Damage was quickly repaired and the dairy continued to operate.

Many of the names on this list can also be found on the list of registered socialists. In later years, the Consumers' Co-operative Dairy had no ties to the socialists or communists according to a woman who used to be on the board. She certainly would not have worked there if it had, she said. But in the early years, it appears, the situation was different. A newspaper article in the Astoria Budget newspaper printed on February 6, 1931 tells of a takeover attempt by communists of the dairy.

More information on these dairies may be found in newspapers at the Astoria Public Library, 450-10th St., Astoria OR 97103.
