Bio/Historical Note: In 1906, Ethel Brittain Rutter (1876-1964), PhB, MA, was widowed with two small children. Rutter received the Gold Medal for proficiency in Household Science from Macdonald College, McGill University, in 1908. She went on to serve on the faculty of Macdonald College. In 1916, Rutter joined the University of Saskatchewan to teach Household Science. Taking summers to study and a year’s leave, she earned the Bachelor of Philosophy degree from the University of Chicago and the Master of Arts degree from Columbia University. In 1928, the School of Household Science was established within the College of Arts and Science. Rutter was instrumental in setting up the degree program, and in 1929 was named Head of the School. She taught classes in food and nutrition, family relations and methods of teaching. To quote from the Canadian Home Economics Journal of March 1955: “Students in Mrs. Rutter’s classes recalled her insistence on accuracy, her high standards of workmanship, her apt phrasing and, above all, her enthusiasm for her subject.” Outside of the University, she encouraged the study of home economics in women’s organizations and constantly stressed the need for employing trained dietitians in hospitals. Upon her retirement in 1940, Professor Rutter was named Professor Emerita of the University of Saskatchewan. She was a Charter Member of the Canadian Dietetics Association (now Dietitians of Canada), Honorary Member of the Canadian Home Economics Association and Honorary Life Member of the McGill Graduate Society. The Rutter Prize was established in 1930 to recognize the most distinguished student in the graduating class of the College of Home Economics. The Rutter Medal now honours the most distinguished Bachelor of Science in Nutrition graduate. Rutter died in 1964; 'Rutter Crescent' in Greystone Heights is named in her honour.

Bio/Historical Note: In 1910 the Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture turned over to the University the responsibility for the development and delivery of agricultural and women's extension programs throughout the Province. To fulfill this mandate, the Department of Agricultural Extension (1910) and Women's Work (1913) were established within the College of Agriculture. Initially the activities of Agricultural Extension focused on services to the Agricultural Societies--short courses, institutes (meetings and conferences), plowing matches, field crop contests, stock judging, etc. Starting during the war years, a Better Farming Train toured the province providing lectures and demonstrations and presenting exhibits on matters pertaining to agriculture. In 1915 "educational holidays" or camps were initiated for farm boys and girls and in 1918 4-H clubs were formed throughout Saskatchewan. Farm and Home Week, a period of exhibits, lectures, and demonstrations at the University, was introduced in the early 1930s. Special projects and programmes for rural women were offered through Homemakers Clubs, established in 1911. In addition to basic domestic activities, women received advice and instruction in fruit growing, tree planting, home nursing, water supply and purity, libraries, health and welfare services, etc. Adult Education services, begun in 1938 in response to forces for social reconstruction, consisted in part of groups formed to discuss planning, economics, cooperatives, government institutions and policies, international affairs, trade unions, etc. This was a logical expansion of the variety of information (bulletins, leaflets), informal (lectures, demonstrations), public (testing, analyses), professional (training), and cultural (drama, music) services, as well as a variety of services to governments at all levels. In 1949 the work of Agricultural Extension and Women's Work were combined in the Department of Extension. It remained a department in the College of Agriculture until 1963 when administrative responsibility was transferred to the Office of the President and renamed the Extension Division. Since the 1970s non-degree programs were offered in the areas of agriculture and horticulture, women, business, languages, indigenous people, community development, liberal studies, arts, seniors, science and technology, career development, and adult education. The name changed again in 1979 to Division of Extension and Community Relations. It was changed back to Extension Division in 1990. The Extension Department was disestablished on 1 July 2007, and replaced with three new departments.
