PURCHASED IN ENGLAND OVER 100 YEARS AGO ACCORDING TO DONOR (1970). REFER TO FILE P19694910000-GA *UPDATE* IN 2017, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF BOXED TEXTILES AND ACCESSORIES, INCLUDING THIS SNUFF BOX DONATED BY MICHAEL JOHN BENNETT IN 1970. ON 11 DECEMBER 2017, PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN INTERVIEW WITH BENNETT’S ELDEST GRANDDAUGHTER, ALICE MAY DUHAMEL. THROUGH THIS INTERVIEW FURTHER INFORMATION WAS RECORDED ABOUT THE DONOR AND THE USERS OF A NUMBER OF ARTIFACTS DONATED BY MICHAEL JOHN BENNETT. ABOUT THE DONOR, DUHAMEL SAID, “WE CALLED HIM ‘POP’. THAT’S BECAUSE [ONE OF THE GRANDCHILDREN], MICHAEL, COULDN’T SAY ‘GRANDPA’, [SO] HE SAID ‘POP’. HE’S ‘POP’ TO EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY. UP UNTIL HE WAS ONE HUNDRED AND ONE OR SO.” SHE CONTINUED, “POP WAS IN ENGLAND [WHEN] HE MARRIED HIS WIFE - [AND MY] GRANDMOTHER - ALICE MAY EDWARDS BENNETT. [SHE] CAME TO CANADA IN 1911 IN SEPTEMBER ON THE SHIP AND LANDED IN CANADA. GRANDMA BROUGHT UNCLE JACK, WHO WAS THE OLDEST, AND MY MOTHER… [MICHAEL AND ALICE] HAD SEVEN CHILDREN: JACK, EDNA MAY, FRANK JAMES, HARRY HUGH, ART – I DON’T KNOW, DORIS ALICE, AGNES MARY, AND SYDNEY EDWARD. MY MOTHER WAS EDNA.” IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THIS SNUFFBOX BELONGED TO DUHAMEL’S GRANDMOTHER, ALICE MAY EDWARDS BENNETT. OF THE SNUFFBOX, DUHAMEL STATED, “WELL, [MY GRANDMOTHER] HAD ALL THIS OTHER EBONY STUFF… I NEEDED TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF MATERIAL [THE SNUFFBOX] WAS MADE FROM, BECAUSE IT APPEARED TO ME TO BE WOODEN AND I HAVE AN IVORY DRESSER SET WITH THE BRUSH, THE COMBS, [AND] THE MANICURE POLISHING [SET] FOR YOUR NAILS… [THEY ARE] BEAUTIFUL… [THE MANICURE SET AND THE SNUFFBOX] MIGHT HAVE GONE TOGETHER BECAUSE IT WAS EBONY AND THAT’S WHAT SHE HAD.” WHEN ASKED ABOUT HER GRANDMOTHER’S USE OF CHEWING TOBACCO IN RELATION TO THE SNUFFBOX, DUHAMEL STATED, “GRANDMA, AS FAR AS I KNOW, NEVER TOUCHED [TOBACCO]… IF SHE’D HAVE USED [THE SNUFFBOX] FOR ANYTHING IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A RING OR A SPECIAL PIN OR SOMETHING, BUT [IT] WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN FOR SNUFF… IT’S POSSIBLE THAT’S WHAT IT WAS, BUT THAT MIGHT NOT BE WHAT SHE USED IT FOR.” ON 13 FEBRUARY 2018, PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN ADDITIONAL INTERVIEW WITH ANOTHER GRANDCHILD OF MICHAEL J. BENNETT, MIKE BENNETT, ALONG WITH HIS WIFE DIANE. WHEN BENNETT WAS ASKED ABOUT THE SNUFFBOX, HE EXPLAINED, “I RECOGNIZE IT. IT USED TO SIT ON MY GRANDMOTHER’S BEDROOM DRESSER. AND I WAS JUST A LITTLE GUY AT THE TIME BECAUSE I WAS ONLY BORN IN 1941. BUT, I DO REMEMBER IT SITTING THERE. I DON’T REMEMBER IT BEING USED FOR ANYTHING.” BENNETT REMEMBERED HIS GRANDPARENT’S HOUSE: “THEY HAD THE HOTEL SHAUGHNESSY, WHICH IS NOT THE SHAUGHNESSY HOTEL THAT IS ON THE HIGHWAY, BUT SHAUGHNESSY THAT BURNT DOWN. IT WAS A HOTEL CLOSER TO THE MINE. ON THE SAME STREET, BUT IT DIDN’T HAVE ALCOHOL. IT WAS JUST A THIRTEEN-ROOM BOARDING HOUSE MORE THAN A HOTEL. IT WAS CALLED HOTEL SHAUGHNESSY AND IT WAS BUILT BY MY GRANDFATHER BEFORE I WAS BORN.” HE CONTINUED, “THEY MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE FROM MEDICINE HAT IN EARLY 1920’S AND [MY GRANDFATHER] WAS A STREETCAR DRIVER IN THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE. HE LEFT THAT... [THEN] HE WORKED FOR BECKER LUMBER IN LETHBRIDGE AND IN PICTURE BUTTE. IN PICTURE BUTTE, HE GOT THE LUMBER AS HE WORKED AND BUILT THE HOTEL. MY GRANDMOTHER LOOKED AFTER ROOMS TO MINERS AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO WERE PASSING THROUGH. AND OPERATED IT AS A BOARDING HOUSE, THE HOTEL SHAUGHNESSY, AND THE FRONT PART WAS A GENERAL STORE…” HE CONTINUED, “THEY MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE FROM MEDICINE HAT IN EARLY 1920’S AND [MY GRANDFATHER] WAS A STREETCAR DRIVER IN THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE. HE LEFT THAT... [THEN] HE WORKED FOR BECKER LUMBER IN LETHBRIDGE AND IN PICTURE BUTTE. IN PICTURE BUTTE, HE GOT THE LUMBER AS HE WORKED AND BUILT THE HOTEL. MY GRANDMOTHER LOOKED AFTER ROOMS TO MINERS AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO WERE PASSING THROUGH. AND OPERATED IT AS A BOARDING HOUSE, THE HOTEL SHAUGHNESSY, AND THE FRONT PART WAS A GENERAL STORE…” IN A WRITTEN RESPONSE TO A QUESTION THE MUSEUM INITALLY POSED TO THE FAMILY ABOUT THE ARTIFACT'S DATES OF USE, MICHAEL BENNETT WROTE THAT IT WAS USED "PRIOR TO 1944." PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTIONS, INCLUDING INDIVIDUAL ACCOUNTS OF THE BENNETT FAMILY HISTORY.
