About Samuel Taube
Taube had immigrated to Saskatchewan from the Ukraine in 1911. Growing up, his first language was Low German. In the 1700s, Catherine the Great of Russia encouraged Central European farmers to settle in Russia. As the rights afforded to these settlers by Catherine were gradually diminished, many of the settlers headed to North America, with Saskatchewan offering good farmland, and other incentives for immigrants.
The Tabes had four boys. The youngest - Professor Henry Taube of Stanford University, was awarded the 1983 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
