History / Biographical
Hardieville School opened on January 2 1912. Hardieville school was seperated from the Lethbridge School District 51 in 1922 in which the school came under the jurisdiction of Lethbridge School Division No.7. In 1952, Hardieville School became incorporated into the city's school system. In 1963, the by-laws #20/63 and #21/63 allowed for a new bigger school to be created. The annexation by the City of Lethbridge of the village of Hardieville in 1979 caused a change in the school systems. Hardieville was then incorporated into the Lethbridge School District No. 51. The school finally closed in 1986 after much debate between the School Board and the Hardieville community. For more information about the Hardieville School and the Lethbridge School District No. 51 look at the book: Lethbridge School District No. 51 The First 100 Years from Cottage to Composite 1886-1986 at the Archive reference library.

Order of the Royal Purple, Lethbridge Lodge #32
Physical Description
1.5 textual records, over 1,000 photographic prints, 7 posters
History / Biographical
The Order of Royal Purple was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia in September 1914. Several wives of the Elks created an informal group in 1913 to assist their husbands with benevolent, charitable and social work. In 1914, they became the recognized female auxiliary of the Elks of Canada. The objectives of the Order were to promote the principles of Justice, Charity, Sisterly Love and Fidelity, to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its members or for other purposes. In addition, the Order was to quicken the spirit of women toward a pure and noble citizenship, to promote harmony and good fellowship, to relieve suffering whenever possible and to strive at all times to make “Life sweeter, women better, and the world happier.” The logo was a diamond with an elk head in the center, a clock pointing to 11 o’clock opposite a pansy and the word Canada on the banner. The pansy was the official flower of the Order. The Royal Purple was a very secretive society. They required passwords for every meeting and National Conventions. The Password could only be changed by the Supreme Honored Royal Lady and the Lodges would be notified every 6 months of the password change. The colors of the Order were purple, white and gold. The tassels on their purple pill box hats represents the individual’s status. White tassel means lodge member, white and purple means Honored Royal Lady (or local president), gold for District Deputy, and purple for Supreme Honored Royal Lady (National Leader.) A non-member can be granted honorary memberships for their contributions to the Lodge. Meetings would begin and end with floor work. Each Lodge and District develop their own bylaws and Rules of Order. In 2014 the Supreme Executive of the Order of Royal Purple decided to secede from the Elks and start a new organization, the Canadian Royal Purple Society. Some locals, however, wished to remain with the Elks and these were integrated into the organization of the Elks of Canada as Royal Purple Elks Lodges. Lethbridge Lodge No. 32 was instituted on April 27, 1928 by PSHRL Mattie Lane and 23 ladies were initiated into the Order. Teas, bake sales, craft sales, rummage sales, and bingos have been annual fundraising activities for the lodge. One of their larger projects was to supply an Audiology Unit (a brain stem evoked response audiometer) costing $40,000.00 for the Regional hospital. They also undertook to supply Lifeline Units to the Auxiliary Hospital. The ladies also supported the local Soup Kitchen, local Food Bank, Parents Place, Harbor House for abused women and children, Meals on Wheels, Keep in Touch as well as other charities. The Lodge was also a supporters of the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for children. They disbanded at the end of 2017.

History / Biographical
In 1959 the Dorothy Gooder School was opened. It was named after Dorothy because of her hard-work, determination and vision. The school started with 3 classrooms and approximately 50 students but was enlarged in 1966. Prior to the opening of the school, parents were solely responsible for the education of their own children with developmental disabilities unless the children were institutionalized. The Dorothy Gooder School was instrumental in helping to show that students with disabilities can learn if teachers adapt the strategies they use. The school closed in 1978 as integration of students with disabilities proceeded and the children were integrated into the other schools. This was one of the goals that Dorothy Gooder was fighting for from the first – she saw the segregated school as only the first step until she could prove that learning was possible. And that was certainly proven. [Description by Lethbridge Historical Society] In 1987 the People First Association made a contribution to the University of Lethbridge to start a Scholarship named after Dorothy Gooder. It is still active and it is given to a student in their fourth year who is studying education with a specialization in Special Education
Scope and Content
Dorothy Gooder was instrumental in changing the ways persons with developmental disabilities were educated in Lethbridge. When her son was born with Down’s Syndrome, Dorothy became interested in education in the field of development disabilities. She was strongly involved in the formation of the Lethbridge and District Association for Retarded Children in 1955. Dorothy believed all children should have the same opportunities and that good teachers could make a difference IF they would change the way they teach. A pilot project was started to show that the student could learn. Two years later the Lethbridge Association for Community Living was formed. [Description by Lethbridge Historical Society] This portrait was presented to Dorothy Gooder in 1966 with the opening of the new addition to the school. See Archive photograph 19871142011.

In 1952, Hardieville School became incorporated into the city's school system. In 1963, the by-laws #20/63 and #21/63 allowed for a new bigger school to be created. The annexation by the City of Lethbridge of the village of Hardieville in 1979 caused a change in the school systems. Hardieville was then incorporated into the Lethbridge School District No. 51.

History / Biographical
The first school built by the Lethbridge Protestant School District No. 51 in 1886 was located on the north west corner of Glyn and dufferin (7th Street and 4th Avenue South.) It wa built by Donald Fraser and Enoch Blythe at a cost of $1, 565, under authorization of the first elected Board of Trustees - Wm. Stafford (Chairman), H.F. Greenwood (Secretary - Treasurer) and John Craig. The first teacher hired by the Board was Mr. B.L. Latimer who taught in the cottage rented from the Compnay prior to the building of the first school. In June 1887 a second teacher was hired - Miss. Duff. This picture was presented to the Board of Trustees of Lethbridge School District No.51 in September, 1978, by Mr. George Watson, Senior. Mr. Watson taught in Lethbridge for 31 years. Upon his retirement (June 1961) he turned his interest and endeavours to preserving the history of Southern Alberta. Much Credit is due to him for the gathering of information from oldtimers and their decendants. Mr. Watson has been tireless in his efforts to bring the students of our schcools an interesting and informative background of their city. [Description taken from the caption of the photograph]
