Dr. Palmer's contribution to irrigation and soil erosion control in the Palliser Triangle had been widely recognized. He worked with the Lethbridge Experimental Station from 1921 until 1953, becoming superintendent in 1945. His research, practical demonstrations and numerous authoritative publications advanced the adoption of modern farm practices and reduced soil drifting on the prairies. Dr. Palmer was honored by the Alberta Institute of Agrologists, the Agricultural Institute of Canada and Utah State University, as well as the University of Lethbridge, which awarded him an Honorary Doctor of Law degree.
