Scope and content

Head and shoulders image of Rupert Ramsay, Professor and Head of Extension.

Bio/Historical Note: Rupert Ramsay arrived in Saskatchewan with his father in 1905 to homestead at Bladworth. Ramsay entered the University of Saskatchewan and obtained a BSA in 1929. Three years later he obtained an MSc degree from the University of Minnesota, specializing in animal nutrition. From 1929- to 1944, except for a year at Minnesota and another year with the Industrial and Development Council of Canada Meat Packers, Ramsay was a livestock specialist with the Extension Department. From 1944 to 1949 he was leader of the Saskatchewan Progressive Conservative Party. His chief concern was with agriculture and the advancing of farming methods and the development of young people into becoming good farmers. Ramsay left politics in 1949 to take charge of the Memorial Union Building Fund at the U of S. From 1951-1953 he served in Ottawa as general secretary of the Agricultural Institute of Canada. He then returned to the U of S to succeed the late John Rayner as director of the Extension Department, a post he held until his death in 1962.
