University of Saskatchewan. College of Medicine. Department of Physiology
Topics in human physiology first appeared at the University of Saskatchewan in 1914. They were initially presented in Pharmacy and Chemistry classes. The Department of Physiology was created in 1926 to meet the needs of the pre-medical students enrolled in the newly created School of Medical Sciences. With the opening of the College of Medicine the department took on the additional task of teaching Pharmacology, and from 1951 to 1969 was known as the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology. Although students in the health-related professions claim the bulk of teaching efforts, the Department prepares undergraduate students for graduation with General, Advanced, and Honours B.SC. degrees. The department maintains an active research program through which it offers training in physiology at the Master's, Doctoral, and Postdoctoral levels. Faculty also provides refresher courses for groups such as Physical Therapists, Optometrists, Pharmacists and hospital residents. The following have served as department head: J.M.D. Scott (1927-1930); J. Fiddles (1930-1946); L.B. Jaques (1946-1972); G.J. Millar (1972-1973); J.W. Phillis (1973-1982); M.M. McDuffie (Acting 1982-1984); M.M. McDuffie (1984-1989); J.A. Thornhill (1989- ).

University of Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan Horticultural Societies Association
The Saskatchewan Horticultural Association was formed in 1927 with the objective of promoting "the interest of horticulture generally and horticultural societies particularly". The following year the provincial government passed the Horticultural Societies Act, giving the Extension Department responsibility for the general supervision of member societies. The department aided the societies with organization and training related to horticultural exhibitions, garden competitions, field days and demonstrations, home and town beautification, rural work and lectures on horticultural topics. The Deputy Minister of Agriculture, the Professor of Horticulture, and the Director of Agricultural Extension at the University were appointed ex officio directors whose duties included attendance at the Annual and Board meetings, providing assistance to the elected officials, and the promotion and improvement of Horticulture. The Saskatchewan Horticultural Association was instrumental in the creation and maintenance of the provincial fruit (1942) and horticultural shows (1962).
