John Milton Bell (1922-1998) was born in islay, Alberta. He joined the faculty of the Department of Animal Husbandry at the University of Saskatchewan in 1948. He served as Department Head from 1954-1975, then as Associate Dean from 1975-1980, and finally as the Burford Hooke Research Chair until his retirement in 1990. He earned a BSc in Agriculture at the University of Alberta in 1943, an MSc from McGill University in 1945, and a PhD at Cornell University in 1948, specializing in nutrition. Bell was an active member of a small team of plant breeders, nutritionists and chemists that developed canola as a major crop for Canadian farmers. His work with rapeseed, begun in the early 1950s, involved basic nutritional research but also branched into toxicology and the mechanism of action of goitroigens and glucosinolates in swine and mice. Bell worked co-operatively with plant breeders and other animal nutritionists in defining the detrimental characteristics in rapeseed, which eventually gave rise to the development of canola and the effective utilization of canola meal in livestock rations.
Bell served as president of the Canadian Society of Animal Science in 1952, also serving on the editorial board of the Journal of Nutrition, the Canadian Journal of Animal Science, and the Journal of the European Association of Animal Production. In recognition of his many contributions, he received more than twenty major awards including Fellow of the Agriculture Institute of Canada (FAIC), Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (FRSC), Doctor of Science (McGill University), and Officer in the Order of Canada. He was invested into the Saskatchewan Agricultural Hall of Fame. Bell’s dedication to the field of animal nutrition was demonstrated by his response to receiving the James McAnsh Award from the Canola Council of Canada. Bell, the first recipient of this award, chose not to accept the cash award, and directed that the money be used to establish the J.M. Bell Post Graduate Scholarship in Animal Nutrition at the U of S. Bell died in Saskatoon in 1998.

Agriculture Building (University of Saskatchewan)

  • UASC0003
  • 1988-present

Original plans for the Agriculture Building had it joining Kirk Hall, the John Mitchell Building and Crop Science, but the architects, Folstad-Friggstad, instructed to provide “a highly visible complex for the College,” proposed a stand-alone building intended to state the importance of the College of Agriculture to the University. It is the first major building on campus clad with glass rather than brick or stone.

The original structure cost $91,000,000 and was constructed between 1988-1991. It consisted of five floors, with 164 research labs, 38 teaching labs, 182 offices, 9 classrooms, 4 computer training facilities, 6 conference rooms, and 167 controlled environment plant growth facilities. In addition it has an impressive inner courtyard, the Atrium, and is home to the Kenderdine Gallery, named in honour of the University’s first art instructor.

Numerous private and corporate donors contributed to the building fund.

The structure had been designed to enable future expansion, and by 2000 a sixth floor was added at a construction cost of $10,000,000. The new addition was intended to house Animal and Poultry Science, Food Science, and Bioinsecticide Research.

The Saskatchewan Cancer and Medical Research Institute was officially opened on 10 May 1958 by Premier T.C. Douglas. Clad in locally quarried greystone with limestone panels, it was the last of the buildings that constituted the University’s Medical Complex’s initial phase. Designed by Izumi, Arnott and Sugiyama and completed at a cost of $783,000, the building’s purpose was to provide shared accommodation for both general medical research and cancer specific investigations. Funding came from the federal and provincial governments and the provincial and national branches of the Canadian Cancer Society. A planned third floor was added in 1966. The building was "deconstructed" in 2009, with much of the building's material recycled including the greystone cladding for use with the E Wing that opened in 2013.

Muskeg Lake Cree Nation

  • Entidade coletiva
  • [1980-]

The Muskeg Lake Cree Nation has determined the importance of preserving the Treaty Land Entitlement documents. The Treaty Land Entitlement Process began in the early 1980's when Chief Wallace Tawpisim discovered that Muskeg Lake may be an Entitlement Band. With the assistance of Cy Standing, from Wahpeton, Sol Sanderson, Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Chief, and the Council of Muskeg Lake, consisting of Alpha Lafond, Dave Lafond, Sam Arcand, Andrew Greyeyes and Clifford Tawpisin, research began on the possibility of Muskeg Lake having a claim to Land. Once the research was completed, and Muskeg Lake realized that the Nation had a valid land claim, Chief Wallace Tawpisin and the council hired Lester Lafond as the Treaty Land Entitlement Coordinator. Lester Lafond pursued land that would possibly be available for purchase, and came across the 45 acres in the City of Saskatoon. Along with this 45 acres were other lands in different areas of Saskatchewan that the Band was looking at to put a claim on. Once the initial claim was made, the negotiations began. Negotiations were held with the Federal Government and the City of Saskatoon. In 1984 the mayor of Saskatoon was Cliff Wright; Federal Indian Affairs Minister was David Crombie. In 1986 Honourable Bill McKnight was assigned as the Minister of Indian Affairs and continued negotiating and assisting Muskeg Lake in the negotiations for the Sutherland Land Entitlement Claim. Two years later after many negotiation meetings and a lot of work, the purchase of the "Sutherland Property" became reality. In September 1992, the Treaty Land Entitlement Frame Work Agreement was signed with the Saskatchewan Entitlement Bands, the Federal and Provincial Governments. After the Band signed the Framework Agreement, a Trustee Committee was formed to oversee the Land Purchases and look after the funds in Trust to the Band. The first Trustees were, Lorne Larson, Band Lawyer, Mervyn J. Arcand, David Greyeyes-Steele and Bernard Arcand and Chief Harry Lafond. In 1998 under the leadership of Chief Harry James Lafond, the Band acquired the 3072 acres of new reserve land under the terms of the Treaty Land Entitlement Settlement Agreement. Throughout the years and to the present, lands and business purchases are being made. The Treaty Land Entitlement process is a complicated and difficult process to understand. It is the Council's hope that with this collection, researchers, community members and the upcoming generations will be able to discover how important the Treaty Land Entitlement Process was and continues to be for the economic stability of Muskeg Lake Cree Nation.
