Ralph G. Steinhauer had been a leader and innovator throughout his 60 years of farming. A successful farmer himself, he had been instrumental in helping agriculture develop on Indian reserves and Metis colonies in the province. One of his greatest contributions was the development of the Saddle Lake Agricultural Development Project which eventually brought 12,725 acres of land into production. His own grain and cow-calf operation had been an example of superior farming techniques. Many honours had been bestowed on Mr. Steinhauer, but he was probably best known as having been Alberta's Lieutenant Governor from 1974 to 1979.
