Archivistische beschrijving

Naam van de archiefvormer


Herman Milton Austenson was born and raised on a farm in Viscount, Saskatchewan. He attended both the University of Saskatchewan (earning a BSA in 1946 and his MSc in 1948) and Washington State University ( where he earned a PhD in 1951). After 14 years on the faculties of Cornell University and Washington State University, he returned to the University of Saskatchewan in 1966. From 1975 to 1983 he served as head of the department of Crop Science and Director of the Crop Development Centre. During this time the plant breeding work at the University of Saskatchewan made considerable progress and its variety testing work was extended throughout the province. Dr. Austenson's own research activities included the areas of pasture management, seed quality and cereal agronomy. He died in Saskatoon on 27 March 1997.
