Administrative history

"It was late in 1979 when Mr. Cliff Haryett of the Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan suggested to Dr. RC Quittenton, Executive Director of Innovation Place...that an international Potash Technology Conference be held in Saskatoon. They envisioned a conference, together with a Trade Show, to highlight the technology that had been developed by the Saskatchewan Potash Industry and to promote Saskatoon as the world centre for present and future potash technology....By the end of January 1982, the first notice of the International Potash Technology Conference was announced nationally and internationally....the date for the conference was set for October 3rd, 4th, and 5th, 1983." (From James Sadler, "Foreword," Potash Technology.)
