With the Junior Cattlemen
By Grant MacEwan
‘Question for today: Who was Robert Bakewell? If the question was about Thomas A. Edison, every young person would have the answer, “one of the world’s foremost inventors, the inventor of the phonograph”. If it were about George Stephenson, the equally ready answer would be, “an English engineer who was the first to apply steam to locomotive engines”. And every boy or girl knows about Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, and Wright brothers, Wilbur and Orville, whose crude plane actually left the ground and flew for about 120 feet one memorable day in 1903.’
