John Macoun


John Macoun was the naturalist during the 1872 survey of the prairies. He concluded that the southern prairies were a rich agricultural land. This contradicted what Palliser had concluded several years before. With this type of positive news the government pushed ahead with its plans to survey the prairies into quarter sections for homesteaders. They also established the border with the United States. All of the ingredients were in place for an influx of settlers.
