Name of creator
Victor Edward Graham was born at Arundel, Quebec in July 1900. He came to Saskatchewan with his parents in 1914 and settled on a farm in the Swift Current area. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture from the University of Saskatchewan in 1927 and a Master's (1930) and Ph.D. (1939) from the University of Wisconsin. Graham was first appointed an Instructor at the University of Saskatchewan in 1927. He became an Assistant Professor in 1930 and was promoted to Head of the Department of Dairy Science in 1939. In 1948, he was appointed Dean of the College of Agriculture and held the position until 1963. Graham was instrumental in the construction of the John Mitchell Building, which originally housed the dairy and food science department. In addition to his administrative responsibilities, Graham was well-known for his work in dairy bacteriology. In addition to his academic work, Graham was also involved in a number of other organizations including the Saskatoon Exhibition (President, 1958-1959), Western Canadian Exhibition Association (President, 1959), Saskatoon Branch of the Agricultural Institute of Canada, Saskatoon Rotary Club, Saskatchewan 4-H Foundation, Canadian Society of Microbiologists, Saskatchewan Research Council, and the Saskatchewan Agricultural Research Foundation. He was made a Fellow of the Agricultural Institute of Canada in 1951. Graham died in Saskatoon on September 3, 1978.
