Historia

George Edwin Britnell was born at Wimbledon, England, on 9 June 1903. His family came to Canada in 1910 and subsequently took up a homestead near Macrorie, Saskatchewan in 1913. Britnell split his early education between Outlook and Prince Albert before attending the University of Saskatchewan where he won the Governor-General's Gold Medal in 1924 and graduated with a B.A. in 1929. He went on to the University of Toronto where he earned both a M.A. (1934) and Ph.D. (1938). With the exception of two brief stints at the University of Toronto, Dr. Britnell's teaching career was centred around the University of Saskatchewan. He received his first appointment in 1930 as a Lecturer in Economics. He rose to the rank of Assistant Professor of Economics in 1938, Professor and Head of Political Science in 1938 and Professor and Head of the joint department of Economics and Political Science in 1945. Dr. Britnell was known as both a fine teacher and a productive scholar. Among his areas of interest and expertise were transportation problems, dominion-provincial relations, the problems of developing countries and energy resources. He died in October 1961 after a lengthy illness.
