Notice biographique

Sophia Dixon was born in rural Denmark Sophia Hansine Rossander on 1 April 1900. Her family immigrated to Canada in 1911 and homesteaded in the Kerrobert area. Though she did not start school until she was 15, once there she excelled. She was awarded the Governor General's medal in 1916 and earned a Permanent Second Class Certificate from the Normal School in 1921. That same year she married a Tramping Lake farmer Charles Dixon. Over the next six decades the Dixons gave their time and support to a number of political and cooperative movements including the Progressive Party, the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, the United Farmers of Saskatchewan, the State Hospital League and the cooperative Commonwealth Federation. Sophia also wrote regularly for the Western Producer. Charles died in 1979, and Sophia died in 1994.
