Memorable Manitobans: Eugene Hausknecht Lange (c1905-1989)

Civil servant, professor.

Born in Russia around 1905, he came to Canada in 1926, studying agriculture at the University of Manitoba and graduating in 1935. In 1939, he received his MSc from MacDonald College of McGill University. For ten years, he served with the Provincial Department of Agriculture as an agricultural representative and as Principal of the Agricultural and Homemaking School in Brandon. In 1952, he joined the University of Manitoba as Director of the diploma course in Agriculture. In the 1960s, he served on a committee of the Manitoba Centennial Corporation. In recognition of his community service, he was elected a fellow of the Agricultural Institute of Canada (1971), received an honorary doctorate from the University of Manitoba (1981), and was inducted into the Manitoba Agricultural Hall of Fame. He died at Winnipeg on 7 May 1989.
