PortraitClifford Henry Whiting

Cliff Whiting, farm and community leader, was born in a log house on his fatherís farm at Pleasant Valley in 1908. His formal schooling was obtained in a rural school, in Melfort High School and in the School of Agriculture at University of Saskatchewan.

Except for two years when he worked for a farm implement agency in Melfort, his home and his career has been on the family farm at Pleasant Valley.

However, his horizons have been broad as he has been an active community worker and involved himself both regionally and provincially. He was a school trustee in his district for 22 years, a councillor of the Rural Municipality of Flettís Springs No. 276 for 10 years, president of the Saskatchewan Agricultural Societies Association, director and chairman of livestock and oil co-operatives, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool delegate for 17 years, 4-H Club leader for five years, and a board member of the 4-H Foundation, convener of farm boysí camps, a board member of Northern Co-operative Trading and Co-operative Fisheries, a member of the provincial council of the CCF, an elder in his church and a Sunday School teacher, a member of the Saskatchewan Jubilee committee (1955) and a member of the Thompson Advisory Committee on Medical Care (1959-61).

In the midst of this he found time to serve 12 years (1946-1958) on the Board of Governors of the University of Saskatchewan, five as chairman.

He has been honored by his peers and associates, the Saskatchewan Agricultural Graduates, Saskatchewan Agricultural Societies, the Melfort Agricultural Society, the Melfort Credit Union, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool and the Canadian Council on 4-H Clubs. He received the Co-operative Certificate of Merit. In 1963 the University of Saskatchewan conferred on him an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree.

Cliff Whiting retired from his grain and livestock farm in 1987.
