History / Biographical
The Lethbridge Research Centre has its origins with the establishment of a Model Farm by the Galt companies in 1902. The Galts hired William Fairfield to organize the farm. In 1906 the federal government took over operation of the farm, and Dr. Fairfield was named first Superintendent of the Dominion Experimental Station.
In 1913 the Dominion Entomological Laboratory was established as a separate unit. The Science Service Laboratories were created in 1949 from the Entomological Laboratory, the Livestock Insect Laboratory (founded 1946), and new Plant Pathology and Chemistry sections. In 1959 the Science Service Laboratories and Experimental Farm merged into the Agriculture Canada Research Station at Lethbridge.
The Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Act Drainage Division at Vauxhall (founded 1941) joined the Research Station in 1961. The Dominion Range Experiment Station at Manyberries (founded 1927) joined the research Station in 1964. In 2003, the Lethbridge Research Centre also incorporates a Range Research Unit at Kamloops, and Research Substations at Onefour and Stavely. The Centre also serves as the Information Technology headquarters for the Western Region of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

Lethbridge Public Library
History / Biographical
Meetings to support a library establishment in Lethbridge began in 1910, and a by 1911 a by-law was passed for a provision of a library that would be known as the Lethbridge Public Library. In 1919, the first library board was appointed with W.J. Nelson (Chair), H.W. Meech, and Rev. C.E. Cragg. The first librarians were also introduced that year, which included A.N. Filmer, L. McIndoe, and Arthur Frayne. At that time, a library service was opened in two rooms of the YMCA. The Lethbridge Public Library building was officially opened on January 23, 1922 (building is currently occupied by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery). The new facility, downtown branch, opened in 1974. In 2013, the Crossings Branch was opened on the west side of Lethbridge.
