L'ancien laboratoire de la ferme expérimentale de Hull

Ce grand bâtiment de briques rouges est le premier construit par le gouvernement fédéral en Outaouais. En 1918, le secteur de la recherche sur les maladies animales du ministère fédéral de l’agriculture cherche de nouveaux espaces. Les locaux de la ferme expérimental d’Ottawa deviennent exigus. Le grand terrain de la maison Fairview est idéal. Le ministère y installe l’Institut de recherches vétérinaire.

Le premier directeur de l’Institut est le docteur Isaac S. Hadwen. Il fait installer des enclos pour les animaux et loge dans la maison Fairview dont l’une des pièces lui sert de laboratoire. C’est sous le second directeur, le docteur Edward A. Watson, qu’est construit ce grand laboratoire de briques entre 1926 et 1928, qui accueille le personnel du centre de recherche. Le troisième et dernier directeur, Charles A. Mitchell, est en poste jusqu’en 1957.

The former laboratory of the Hull experimental farm

This large red brick building is the first built by the federal government in the Outaouais. In 1918, the animal disease research sector of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture was looking for new areas. The Ottawa Experimental Farm is getting cramped. The large lot at Fairview House is ideal. The ministry is setting up the Veterinary Research Institute there.

The first director of the Institute is Dr Isaac S. Hadwen. He had animal enclosures set up and lived in the Fairview House, one of the rooms he used as a laboratory. It was under the second director, Dr Edward A. Watson, that this large brick laboratory was built between 1926 and 1928, which housed the staff of the research center. The third and final director, Charles A. Mitchell, held office until 1957.
