Just as the resources
develop change, so does the related technology. Technology must evolve so that
resources can be developed in a more effective and efficient manner.
Throughout Alberta's resource
development history, different resources have been researched and developed at different times. The Alberta Research Council (ARC) is an
organization that does research on behalf of large resource development companies
to come up with new and better ways to develop these resources. In this section we examine
past ARC annual reports as well
as some booklets published by the Friends
of Reynolds-Alberta Museum Society on agriculture to trace changes in technology
from the early days up to the 1950s.
