PortraitRobert Edward Brack

In a 40-year career at the University of Saskatchewan, Bob Brack left his mark on information transfer to farmers as well as the 4-H movement.

Bob was born in Strasbourg in 1930 and he grew up on farms near Bulyea and Clark's Crossing. He graduated from the College of Agriculture, University of Saskatchewan with Great Distinction in 1952 receiving the most distinguished agriculture graduate of the year award from the Saskatchewan Institute of Agrologists (SIA). He obtained a Master's Degree from the University of Wisconsin in 1961.

Bob was first appointed to the staff of the University’s Extension Department in 1952. During his years at the University, Bob was a distinguished educator and trusted mentor. In 1982, he became Director of the Extension Division. He filled the years from 1952 to 1991 with innovative and long-lasting contributions to the development of rural youth, agricultural producers and agricultural organizations. This work included extension services and adult learning, alumni relations and providing distance education to communities across the province.

In addition to the Extension Department/Division, Bob held associate memberships in the College of Agriculture and the Department of Continuing Education. For many years, he played a major role in the production and distribution of The Guide to Farm Practice in Saskatchewan. He was the editor of all three guides published in the 1980s.

Bob assumed leadership for the provincial 4-H Council and influenced thousands of young 4-H members over the years. He helped create the 4-H Foundation leading to the permanent establishment of Camp Rayner at Lake Diefenbaker. He was instrumental in positive changes to the 4-H program including the development of multiple-project clubs and the expansion of 4-H projects. With his encouragement, leadership activities became an important part of the 4-H curriculum. Bob was president of the Canadian 4-H Council during Canada's Centennial Year in 1967 and was awarded the Centennial Medal. Another honor of special note was the SIA Distinguished Agrologist Award in 1995.

Bob Brack died on January 16, 2010 in Saskatoon.
