History / Biographical
The Waterton Natural History Association was formed in 1983 in Waterton Lakes National Park (WLNP) as the first co-operating association in Western Canada. As a non-profit association with Parks Canada registered in the Province of Alberta, under the direction of a Board of Directors, its role was to provide and publish materials relevant to Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, provide funds for and execute projects undertaken to enhance WLNP and to sponsor special events and services for the enjoyment and education of the park visitor. The WNHA operated out of the Heritage Centre in the old Fire Hall on Waterton Avenue which was altered to house a museum of natural and cultural history exhibits about the area. The organization sold books, and topographic maps, sponsored natural history related events, workshops and art exhibits and well as providing one-on-one information to the visiting public. Summer employment programs were supported through the hiring of students, seniors, handicapped etc. Membership in the organization was open to all interested parties for a nominal fee. Over time, the WNHA operated the Crooked Creek Campground outside the park and sold plaques for a Cemetery Wall as well as raising funds for its various activities. In February, 2018, the association was formally dissolved at the final annual general meeting.

History / Biographical
Anne Campbell was born in 1910 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Campbell began teaching music and directing choirs in 1926, at the age of 14. She received her Associate Diploma in piano (A.M.U.S.) from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, and a Licentiate in Music (L.M.U.S.) from the University of Saskatchewan. She received an honorary degree, Doctor of Laws, from the University of Lethbridge in 1983 for her contributions to music in Canada. During her music career, Campbell was awarded the Order of Canada for her volunteer contributions to the arts, the Silver Medal from Queen Elizabeth II for her dedication to music, and in 1980 she was named the Woman of the Year for Lethbridge and District. In 2005, she received the Alberta Centennial Award for her community service and dedication. Campbell moved to Lethbridge and founded the Southminster United Church Junior Girls’ Choir in 1953. With the success and encouragement of her students, she developed five choir groups: the Anne Campbell Singers, the Teen Clefs, the Mini Choir, the Southminster United Church Junior Girls Choir, and the Linnet Singers. These choirs include singers from all over southern Alberta, ages 5 and older. The choirs performed and competed all over the world, including an invitation for the Junior Girls Choir to perform at Expo ‘67. In 1968, the choirs competed in festivals in Europe, including winning awards at the Bournemouth Festival, the Teesside International Festival, and they won first place at the Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales. The choirs won several awards and competitions, and gained national and international reputations for their performances. The choirs performed in many local concerts, like the annual Spring Sing and the Singing Tree Concerts, throughout southern Alberta. Several members of Anne Campbell’s choirs have continued on in music, with successful music careers, including Marcia Swanston, an opera singer, Bente Hansen, Instructor for the Music Department at the University of Lethbridge, Leslie Dittmann, award-winning girls’ choir conductor, and more. Anne Campbell lived in Lethbridge most of her life with her husband, Don, and their sons, Macdonald (Mac), Stewart, and Alix. Anne Campbell was an honorary life member of the Alberta Registered Music Teachers Association and the Alberta Choral Federation. The Federation presented her with the Richard S. Eaton Award of Distinction for her service in choral music. Anne Campbell retired from the Anne Campbell Singers and her other choirs in 1994, and Shannon Coffman took over the choirs. Campbell moved to Cochrane in the late 1990s to be closer to her son Stewart and his family.
