Canadian Science and Engineering Hall of Fame

The Saskatoon Western Development Museum has a display from the Canadian Science and Engineering Hall of Fame, which will run until Feb. 26.

Have you ever driven over the Broadway Bridge in Saskatoon? If so, do you know who designed it and supervised its construction? The answer is Chalmers Jack Mackenzie, Dean of Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan.

Do you use a cell phone or smart phone? Ever thought about who came up with the idea for a telephone and who built the first one? The answer is Alexander Graham Bell, who also worked to develop methods to help deaf children speak.

Have you wondered who assisted the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in investigating suspicious deaths? In Saskatchewan, from 1922 to 1942 it was the Provincial Pathologist, Frances Gertrude McGill, who in 1946 was made Honourary Surgeon to the RCMP.
