Agricultural Students' Association (University of Saskatchewan)

  • Instelling
  • 1920-

The first meeting of the Agricultural Students' Association of the University of Saskatchewan was held on March 20, 1920. It was formed as "a result of the cessation of the War, with its consequent effects in student enrollment." With greater numbers of students, "many new organizations [appeared, which] caused considerable overlapping in student activities with no central body in control." At the request of his fellow students, 4th-year president J.B. Harrington called a general meeting of College of Agriculture students on February 10, 1920. A subcommittee was formed to draft a constitution; that constitution was approved, and the ASA officially formed in March. Among the objectives of the Association was the development of rural leadership and the promotion of agricultural education in the province; although, as with most student organizations, its primary function was to promote fellowship among the students and to serve as a medium of communication between students and faculty.

Farmer, David Leighton, 1932-1994

  • Persoon

David Leighton Farmer was born 3 October 1932 in Plymouth, England. He won a scholarship to Exeter College, and by the age 25 had earned both his BA (1954) and DPhil (1958) from Oxford University. From 1958 to 1970 he taught at various schools in Scotland and England, prior to accepting a position in the Department of History at St. Thomas More College, University of Saskatchewan, in 1970. Farmer specialized in Medieval History, particularly the history of agriculture, prices, and marketing in England during the Middle Ages. Given his area of academic specialization, Farmer occasionally cautioned that he worked "in academic isolation" in Saskatchewan; however, his work has been characterized as "seminal;" "essential reading for anyone hoping to understand the medieval English economy and [likely to] remain classic reference articles for decades to come." In addition to several articles and papers, Farmer also contributed three chapters to The Agrarian History of England and Wales, published Britain and the Stuarts, 1603-1714, and co-authored a textbook, Exploring Our Roots. Farmer organized and taught the first University of Saskatchewan class given outside of Canada (at Oxford); served for many years as Head of the STM Department of History; and was a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
