Administrative history

In 1913 Abigail DeLury began 17 years as the Director of Women's Work in the Department of Extension, establishing Homemaker's Clubs (later, Saskatchewan Women's Institutes) to whom she taught homemaking skills and for whom she produced a variety of domestic science pamphlets. Instruction in household science began on campus in 1917 with the appointment of E.B. Rutter as instructor. The Department became a School within the College of Arts and Science in 1928 and the School became a College in 1942. In 1941 the degree program expanded from 3 to 4 years following senior matriculation. The name was changed from the College of Household Science to the College of Home Economics in 1952. The College was phased out in 1990. The following individuals served as Dean: G.H. Ling (1931-1940); H.H. Hunt (1940-1965); E.R. Simpson (1965-1971); M.J. Guilford [Acting] (1972); Helen Abell (1973-1974); M.J. Guilford [Acting] (1974-1976); D.L. Gibson (1976-1981); T.J. Abernathy (1981-1982); H.E. Nixon [Acting] (1982); G.M.
