The Edith Rowles Simpson Lecture
At the time of Dean Edith Rowles Simpson’s retirement in 1972, the Simpson Lectureship was established in her honour. An endowed trust, made possible through generous donations from alumna, colleagues, family and friends, funds the public lectures. The Lectureship is organized by a Committee comprised of representatives from the College of Education (Home Economics Education program), College of Pharmacy and Nutrition (Nutrition and Dietetics program), the Association of Saskatchewan Home Economists, Saskatchewan Dietitians Association and the Saskatchewan Home Economics Teachers Association.
Prior to each lecture, there a warm tribute to Dean Simpson and members of her family are introduced. The lecture is followed by a reception. When possible, workshops or class presentations are arranged so that the visiting lecturer can share his or her expertise further with Home Economics and Nutrition faculty, professionals and students.
The following is a list of Edith Rowles Simpson Lectures from 1974-2003:
