Description The Conservation of the Wild Life of Canada de C Gordon Hewitt:

Excerpt from The Conservation of the Wild Life of Canada When Gordon Hewitt came to Ottawa in the fall of 1909 to enter upon his duties as Dominion Entomologist, he fully expected to return to Manchester University in a year or so, there to continue his researches in entomology and his lectures in zoology- but the call of Canada was not to be ignored: he found work for a giant to do and he bent himself to his task. Ten years of life in office were allowed him, and, during that time, he had the satisfaction of developing the Dominion Entomological Service from a small division, attached to the Experimental Farm, to a separate branch of the Department of Agriculture, with four divisions at Ottawa, and twelve laboratories throughout Canada, organized for the purpose of watching, combating and forestalling insect injury to forests and crops. Quarantine stations were also established to prevent the importation of foreign pests. For this work, trained, scientific men were required, and here his enviable talent for selecting the right man for the place, and in using his powers to the full stood him in good stead. Indeed, the relation that existed between my husband and his associates was like that which animates a group of friends, where each one gives the best that is in him and looks for the best in others - a bright record in Civil Service history of loyalty and disinterestedness. Commenting on his remarkable faculty of choosing his associates and attaching them to himself and his schemes, Doctor W. M. Wheeler wrote: "The truly remarkable record of development and public service exhibited by Doctor Hewitt's department during the decade of his administration was clearly due to the unusual abilities of the man.
