Ralph Kenneth Larmour was born 17 December 1894 in Irena, Ontario. He spent his youth in Morrisburg and later taught school in rural Ontario and Saskatchewan. During World War I Larmour served with the 78th Winnipeg Grenadiers and received the Military Medal following action at Passchendaele. In 1919 he enrolled at the University of Saskatchewan, earning both a BSc (1923) and MSc (1925); in 1927 he received a PhD from the University of Minnesota. Larmour joined the Department of Chemistry in 1927 and for the next 18 years built a solid reputation for research in cereal chemistry. During those years he was also active with the Canadian Officers Training Corps (COTC). In 1945 Dr. Larmour accepted an appointment as Director of Research of the National Research Council's newly established Prairie Regional Laboratory in Saskatoon, where he remained until 1947. Concurrent with this appointment, he served as Scientific Advisor to the Canadian High Commissioner in London. From 1945 to 1963, Larmour served as the first Director of Research of Maple Leaf Mills, Toronto. Larmour retired in 1963 and settled in Grimsby, Ontario, where he died in 1970.
