PortraitViolet McNaughton

Born in Bordon, Kent, England, in 1879, Mrs. McNaughton (nee Jackson) came to Canada in 1909, and shortly thereafter married John McNaughton, a Scottish immigrant homesteader at Harris, Sask., and an active member of the Saskatchewan Grain Growers Association. Mrs. McNaughton immediately be-came involved in the work of the organization, and at the 1913 convention in Saskatoon became secretary of a committee which brought into existence the Womenís Grain Growers Association. She was president of the organization for three years, then be-came president of the Interprovincial Council for Farm Women.

She played a prominent role in a campaign to establish municipal hospitals, in the work of the Womenís War Conference in 1918, in the success of the Progressive party in 1921, and in the development of unity among womenís organizations in the Prairie region. As womenís editor of The Western Producer for 25 years, she gave active support to movements for better social welfare, such as the campaign for old age pensioners. She worked tirelessly to better the lot of women and children in the land of her adoption.

In 1934, Violet McNaughton was honored by King George V by conferral of the Order of the British Empire, and in 1951 she received an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Saskatchewan.
