PREFACE

THREE YEARS is a short time to spend on the research and writing of a history of a large and complex institution that has existed for seventy- five years. Fortunately, a year's sabbatical followed by another year free from teaching duties enabled me to work full time on the project for two years. Even so several people told me that it could not be done -- they were almost right. It is done, and I hope done well. There may be what some consider to be errors of omission but there was only so much space available. I had to concentrate on those people and events which made the most difference. I hope that errors of commission are few. If that is so, it is owing largely to the help that I have received from very many people.

I must first thank the archivists who have helped me. Historians could not do their work well without the advice and aid of archivists. I have been most helped by the following: Stan Hanson and his staff in the University of Saskatchewan Archives, by far the best of the university archives that I have used; Doug Bocking, associate provincial archivist, of the Saskatchewan Archives Board in Saskatoon and the members of his staff, especially Lloyd Rodwell and Kathlyn Szalasznyj; Ian Wilson, provincial archivist, of the Saskatchewan Archives Board in Regina and his staff, particularly Ruth Wilson whose kindness goes far beyond the duty of an archivist. Archivists at Toronto, Dalhousie, and McMaster Universities and the Archives of Nova Scotia
