Biographical history

The Agricultural Fairs Association of British Columbia was founded in 1910 under the auspices of the Dept. of Agriculture. Several years prior to the founding of the Association, the Dept. of Agriculture had been paying for judges to travel to fall fairs to provide outside, competent judging. It was the aim of the Dept. of Agriculture to form an agricultural fairs association to hold an annual convention and to take up all matters with reference to the management of agricultural fairs and exhibitions throughout the province. The first convention of the Association was called for and chaired by the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, W.E. Scott and was addressed by the Premier.
