History / Biographical
Sugar beet farming has an extensive history in southern Alberta. Sugar beets had been farmed in Ontario and Quebec but with the help of irrigation techniques southern Alberta was found to be an ideal place to grow the crop. The first sugar beet factory in Alberta was built under the Roger’s sugar name at Raymond, Alberta in 1925; near the site of the old Knight Sugar factory. A second factory was built at Picture Butte in 1936, and the largest was opened in 1950 at Taber. Collectively the factories employed hundreds of workers and helped to support the economy of western Canada and reportedly processed 5000 tons of beets daily into sugar during the busy fall harvest season. These factories also produced beet pulp, and dried molasses beet pulp, which are by-products of the sugar production process used for animal feed. The Taber factory is the only one that is still operational and the only sugar factory in Canada that processes sugar beets. XXX The photographs are of the beet growing and harvesting process as well as the sugar production process and machinery. The photos were taken by J.D. Bodington (1958), Harry Pollard (1947) and a couple apparently taken by Nicholas Morant. The series also includes an educational advertising brochure (connection to the Lethbridge Herald? See page 12), possibly printed around 1950 which talks about what sugar beets are, how they are grown and processed and the value of the industry to the Albertan and Canadian economies.

History / Biographical
Frank Shippobotham was born on October 31, 1914 in Lethbridge Alberta to C.C.R. Shippobotham and Margaret (nee Campbell) Shippobotham. Frank was the second son of three. He had an older brother Douglas and a younger brother, Victor. He was an amateur photographer, a member of the Orange Lodge and Scouts Canada, as well as St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. Shippobotham enlisted with the 2- 20th Antitank Battery in 1928/1929 and served with them during the interwar years through into the Second World War. Unfortunately a bout of polio as a child left him with a weakened left arm and leg. This affected his ability to serve actively overseas during the war. During his military career he served at Camp Shilo in Manitoba, Camp Sarcee in Calgary and here in Lethbridge at the barracks training new officers and gunners for service overseas and working in Stores. He attained the rank of Quartermaster Sargeant. In June of 1942, Frank married Garnette Lillian Gamble and the couple had one son, Robert Howard, born to them on March 18, 1943. Polio also affected his employment options after his military career. He ended up working various odd jobs like Canadian Western Hardware and St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. Frank Shippobotham died on September 12, 1979 of a heart attack at the age of 66 and is buried in Mountainview Cemetery in the field of honour.
