Biographical history

Woodrow Stanley Lloyd was born on July 16, 1913 in Webb, Saskatchewan to Allen Edward and Myrtle Belle (Davis) Lloyd. He received his early education at
Lloyd S.D. #1016, in Webb, and in Regina where he graduated from Scott Collegiate. He completed Normal School in Moose Jaw in 1931 and received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 1940. Lloyd completed additional university courses to obtain a high school teaching certificate in 1941.

Prior to his entry into politics, Lloyd taught at Swan Lake S.D. #2374 near Rush Lake (1932) and was principal of schools at Stewart Valley (1934-1936); Vanguard (1936-1941); and Biggar (1941-1944). He served as president of the Saskatchewan Teachers' Federation (1940-1944); as an executive member for the Canadian Teachers' Federation (1940); and as president of the Saskatchewan Educational Conference (1942-1944). He was elected to the Senate of the University of Saskatchewan in 1942.

Lloyd was first elected to the Saskatchewan Legislature in 1944 and served as the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) for the Biggar constituency until 1967. He served as the New Democratic Party (NDP) MLA for the Biggar constituency from 1967 until 1971.

Lloyd served in the T.C. Douglas Government as Minister of Education (1944-August 1960). During this time, he was also Minister in Charge of Libraries (1948-1960); Minister in Charge of Saskatchewan Archives Board (1948-1960); Chairman of Saskatchewan Research Council (1947-1960); Minister in Charge of Public Service Commission (1952-1961); and Chairman of the Board of the Centre for Community Studies (1957-1960).

On November 3, 1961, Lloyd was elected leader of the provincial CCF party and was appointed Premier of Saskatchewan on November 7, 1961. He served as Premier and President of the Executive Council until his Government was defeated in the 1964 general election by the Liberal party.

Biographical history

Thomas Kunito (Tommy) Shoyama was born on September 24, 1916, in Kamloops, British Columbia. He earned Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Bachelor of Commerce degrees from the University of British Columbia in 1938. From 1939 to 1945, Shoyama served as editor of the New Canadian, a civil rights newspaper for Japanese-Canadians. In 1946, he worked briefly as a journalist for the Intelligence Corps of the Canadian Army before he moved to Regina, Saskatchewan, to work for the Government of Saskatchewan.

During his tenure with the Government of Saskatchewan, Shoyama was first hired as a research economist. In 1950, he was appointed as secretary to the Economic Advisory and Planning Board. He also served as economic advisor to Premier T.C. Douglas (1950-1961) and Premier W.S. Lloyd (1961-1964).

In 1964, Shoyama moved to Ottawa and became a senior research economist with the Economic Council of Canada. He was appointed federal Assistant Deputy Minister of Finance (1968); Assistant Deputy Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources (1974); and Deputy Minister of Finance (1975). He retired from the federal civil service in 1979 and soon after was appointed as advisor to the Privy Council on economic aspects of the Constitution. In 1980, he became a visiting professor at the University of Victoria in its School of Public Administration and its Centre for Pacific and Oriental Studies.

Awards and honours received by Shoyama included: Officer of the Order of Canada (1978); the Outstanding Achievement Award in the Public Service of Canada (1982); the Vanier Medal from the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (1982); honourary degrees from the University of British Columbia (1984) and University of Victoria (1999); and the Order of the Sacred Treasure from the Government of Japan (1992). The Pearson-Shoyama Institute in Ottawa was partly named in Shoyama's honour. As well, the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, established at the University of Regina in 2007, was partly named in Shoyama's honour.

Thomas Shoyama died in Victoria on December 22, 2006.
