Naam van de archiefvormer
John George Rayner was born in London, England, on 1 October 1890, and came to Canada with his parents in 1892 to settle in the farming community of Elm Valley, Manitoba. He received a B.S.A. from the Manitoba Agricultural College in 1913, and in 1914 came to Saskatchewan as an Agricultural Representative for the Department of Agriculture. He joined the faculty of the University of Saskatchewan in 1918 as Assistant Director of Extension, serving as Director from 1920-1952. He was also the first director of the Boys' and Girls' Clubs, and helped establish the philosophy and principles of the 4-H Movement. In 1965 the 4-H Foundation's Camp Rayner was named in his honour, and in 1973 he was posthumously named to Saskatchewan's Hall of Fame. Professor Rayner died in Saskatoon on 30 June 1952.
