History / Biographical
In 1907 the Ontario Department of Agriculture established its Extension Branch to set up and administer a network of branch offices in each county to provide advice and assistance to farmers and agricultural organizations at the local level. The Elgin County Branch office was established in 1911, largely as a result of the vigorous lobbying efforts of Wallacetown, Ontario resident John E. Pearce. Each Extension Branch office was headed by the resident Agricultural Representative. Fred Moore Clement of Lincoln County arrived in 1911 as the first Agricultural Representative for Elgin County. Mr. Clement was succeeded by Charles W. Buchanan, who served until 1927. Following Mr. Buchanan were Fletcher S. Thomas (1927-1945), A.O. Dalrymple (1945-1946), A. Victor Langton (1946-1972), Harold Buck (1972-1980), John A. Anderson (1980-[1985?]), and David Murray ([1985?]-[1996?]). By 1923 the Elgin County Branch office of the Ontario Department of Agriculture was situated at 371 Talbot St., St. Thomas, Ontario, subsequently known as the Royal Bank Building. The office relocated in early 1965 to 594 Talbot St., St. Thomas. In a press release issued May 22, 1996, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food announced the closure of its St. Thomas, Ontario branch office and the consolidation of its functions in a new regional Ministry office to be opened in London, Ontario.

Photographs of contestants in the Plowing Match. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal on October 26, 1950, page one: “Three Generations of Family Compete at Elgin Plowing Match.” 1_894: “Three generations of good plowmen were exemplified by the Lyons family at the Elgin County Plowing match on the A.W. Purcell farm in Aldborough Township Wednesday afternoon. Shown above are, left to right: Roy Lyons, Jr. Dutton, who was fourth in the class for horse drawn plows, in sod, Elgin plowmen; Kenneth Lyons, seven-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Lyons, Wallacetown, who took second prize in the tractor plowing class, sponsored by the St. Thomas Kiwanis Club; Roy Lyons, 4 Omeeme Street, St. Thomas, aged 69, the oldest plowmen at the match; Mrs. Douglas Lyons, Wallacetown, who was placed first in the women’s tractor plowing class, defeating some of the best from Kent and Middlesex; and Douglas Lyons, who was fourth in a keenly-contest tractor class, open to the world. The Lyons really took a lion’s share of the honors, Wednesday.” Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal on October 26, 1950, page one: “Pictures snapped at Elgin Plowing Match.” 1_895: “Angus McLean, widely-known corn and bean producer of West Elgin, farming north of Rodney, really has an inspiration, Wednesday morning when he decided to enter the tractor class in sod, open to the world. Despite the fact that he hadn’t competed for year, he placed third, one the beautiful silver tray put up by Elgin Co-Operative Service for the highest scoring land by a resident of Elgin; the Imperial Oil Company’s Esso championship for the best land in sod by an Elgin plowman; and a host of the awards, including 100 ponds of chick feed from Reeve A. T. Lashbrook of Rodney.” 1_897: “A veteran of Ontario agricultural service and two generations of the Purcell family are represented in the above photograph, taken at the Elgin County Plowing Match, Wednesday. Left to right are Charles W. Buchanan of Thamesville, retired agricultural representative and Elgin’s first representative, who had a grand time renewing acquaintance. Arthur Purcell, owner of the farm, 3rd Concession, Aldborough, where the match took place; his mother, Mrs. Ella Purcell, who will be 90 in December and his lived on the farm for 66 year.; and Leslie Armstrong, Union, president of the Elgin County Plowman’s Association and also president of the Elgin County Junior Farmers. Mrs. Purcell’s son, John, in farming partnership with him, was too busy plowing to get into the photograph. John’s little daughter, representing the fourth generation on the farm, was also at the match.” 1_896: “Bothwell was represented at the Elgin County Plowing Match, Wednesday, by the Bergey sisters, Joyce and June, who plowed in the Highgate match land competition last week, when June won second and Joyce third. At the Elgin Match, the situation was reversed, with June, aged 19 shown above to the left, winning third, and Joyce, aged 18, being placed second by the judges. Their scores were very close.”

On February 12, 1957 the Elgin County Plowmen's Association organized a meeting of representatives of various Elgin County municipal, civic and agricultural organizations at the offices of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food, Elgin County Branch in St. Thomas to discuss petitioning the Ontario Plowmen's Association for the right to hold the 1960 International Plowing Match and Farm Machinery Demonstration in Elgin County. A delegation was appointed to present the petition at the Ontario Plowmen's Association's annual meeting in Toronto on February 26, 1957, at which time the O.P.A. awarded the event to Elgin County. The Local Committee for the 1960 International Plowing Match and Farm Machinery Demonstration was established on a provisional basis on April 17, 1957, and the following officers were elected: Leslie Armstrong, Chairman; Albert Auckland, Vice-Chairman; A.V.

The Committee's permanent executive officers, constituent committees and committee chairmen were appointed on September 28, 1959: Frank Pineo was appointed Chairman, Leslie Armstrong Vice-Chairman, A.V.
