PortraitWilliam Richard Motherwell

A pioneer in the development of Western Canada, W. R. Motherwell later became the agricultural leader of the entire country.

At the age of 22, Motherwell, a native of Lanark County Ontario, heeded the call of the West. On that journey, he travelled by ox cart from Brandon, Manitoba, to the homestead on which he settled at Abernethy, Saskatchewan. Upon arrival there he began to participate in community affairs by helping to organize the local school board and the Presbyterian Church. In 1901 he was involved in organizing the Territorial Grain Growers' Association and became its first president the following year.

When Saskatchewan became a province in 1905 he was invited to become the Minister of Agriculture. During his term of office, which covered 14 years, he was instrumental in having an agricultural faculty established at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.

From 1921 to 1929, he served as Canadaís Minister of Agri-culture, and in that capacity played an important role in the establishment of a cereal breeding and rust research laboratory at Winnipeg, the adoption of grade standards for most farm products and the introduction of the restricted area plan for the eradication of tuberculosis.
