History / Biographical
W.L. Jacobson was an irrigation scientist who worked with the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration (PFRA) and Experimental Farm during the fight to control soil erosion in the drought of the 1930s. He was also the secretary of the PFRA Advisory Committee on Land Utilization from 1935 to 1947. He pioneered such concepts as ‘duty of water.’ Later, he became a Glenbow Archives staff member, who was commissioned to gather information pertaining to irrigation, dry land farming, water conservation and irrigation pioneers in Alberta. The photographs are based in various locations across Canada and the United States. The Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration (PFRA) was a branch under Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), a department of the Federal Government of Canada. The Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration was established by an Act of Parliament under Prime Minister R. B. Bennett in 1935 in response to the widespread drought, farm abandonment and land degradation of the 1930s. The PFRA served to promote sustainable development on the rural prairies for over seven decades in the areas of air, water, soils, and biodiversity. Its mandate included detailed examination of various methods for soil conservation and enrichment. PFRA also planned and developed large scale, multi-use projects such as the St. Mary River irrigation district, the Bow River Irrigation Project, and the South Saskatchewan River Project (Gardiner Dam/Lake Diefenbaker).
