ON MAY 29, 2018, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED DUANE KING REGARDING HIS DONATION OF A REVOLVER. THE REVOLVER WAS USED BY POLICE OFFICERS IN PICTURE BUTTE, ALBERTA, AND WAS ACQUIRED BY KING FROM THE TOWN OF PICTURE BUTTE. ON THE REVOLVER, KING ELABORATED, “[THIS HANDGUN] BELONGED TO THE TOWN OF PICTURE BUTTE. I WAS HAVING COFFEE ONE DAY, IN FEBRUARY OF 1980, IN THE COFFEE SHOP IN PICTURE BUTTE, AND THE TOWN SECRETARY WAS THERE, AS USUAL, A WHOLE BUNCH OF US. HE SAID, “I HEAR YOU LIKE GUNS.” ONE THING LED TO ANOTHER, AND I PUT A BID IN [FOR THE HANDGUN], TO THE TOWN COUNCIL, AND THEY ACCEPTED IT. I ENDED UP WITH THE TWO GUNS. THE TOWN SECRETARY’S NAME WAS PIUS RIES. HE’S SINCE PASSED AWAY, BUT HE WAS A WELL-KNOWN MAN IN PICTURE BUTTE.” “THE [THE HANDGUN WAS ONE OF THE ONLY TWO GUNS] THAT THEY HAD. THEY ONLY HAD THE ONE POLICEMAN, AND I KNEW THE MAN WHEN I WAS A BOY GOING TO SCHOOL, GROWING UP. HIS NAME WAS BUCK GELDERT, AND, AS IT TURNS OUT, MY BROTHER-IN-LAW BOUGHT THE POLICE CAR, ONCE THEY GOT RID OF EVERYTHING. I BOUGHT THE GUNS MAINLY BECAUSE THEY WERE THE TOWN OF PICTURE BUTTE POLICE GUNS. NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE REALIZE THAT PICTURE BUTTE DID HAVE A POLICEMAN.” “[THE SMITH AND WESSON WAS A GUN] THAT POLICE FORCES WOULD HAVE USED. I WOULD IMAGINE THAT SMITH AND WESSON IS PROBABLY A VERY POPULAR POLICE GUN.” “THEY KNEW THAT I WAS INTERESTED IN GUNS. I HAD ALWAYS BEEN, SINCE A LITTLE BOY, HAD GUNS. [RIES] APPROACHED ME THAT DAY, AND I WENT TO LOOK AT THE GUNS. I MADE AN OFFER, TO TOWN COUNCIL, AND THEY ACCEPTED IT.” “I MADE A WRITTEN OFFER TO THE TOWN OF PICTURE BUTTE, AND THEY TOOK IT UP AT THEIR NEXT COUNCIL MEETING. THEN IT WAS ADVERTISED IN THE ‘SUNNY SOUTH NEWS’, THAT I HAD DONE THIS, THAT THEY HAD ACCEPTED MY OFFER, AND WHAT THE OFFER WAS. I WENT AND PICKED THE GUNS UP, GAVE THEM THEIR MONEY, AND I’VE HAD THEM EVER SINCE. I’VE NEVER SHOT THEM. THAT’S NOT WHY I BOUGHT THEM…I’VE JUST ALWAYS HAD THEM, AND LOVED THEM.” “[THE TOWN POLICE] MUST HAVE BEEN OUT OF THE TOWN HALL. I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH THE POLICEMAN’S SON, AND I KNEW HIS DAUGHTER. WE ALL WENT TO THE SAME SCHOOL, THE SAME CHURCH, THE SAME SUNDAY SCHOOL. I REMEMBER THE POLICEMAN, BUCK GELDERT. HE WAS A HUGE MAN, AND WHEN HE LEFT PICTURE BUTTE, HE WENT TO COALDALE, AND HE WORKED FOR THE COALDALE POLICE.” KING RECALLED GELDERT, NOTING, “HE HAD A UNIFORM, AND A POLICE CAR WITH A BIG RED SIREN, FLASHING LIGHT, ON THE ROOF…I DON’T REMEMBER HIM WALKING, BUT I REMEMBER HIM DRIVING AROUND TOWN, ESPECIALLY IN THE EVENINGS AND AT NIGHT. ONE NIGHT I WAS GOING HOME IN THE DARK, AND I HIT A HORSE, GRAVEL ROAD, AND I WRECKED THE TRUCK THAT I WAS DRIVING. [BUCK GELDERT] CAME AND HE GAVE ME A RIDE HOME. MY FOLKS WEREN’T ALL THAT HAPPY, BUT HE WAS THERE.” “I REMEMBER HIM PASSING OUT SPEEDING TICKETS. THEY HAD A COURTROOM, AND THEY HAD A JUSTICE OF THE PEACE, OR A MAGISTRATE. YOU WENT THERE TO PAY YOUR TRAFFIC TICKETS, BUT, OTHER THAN THAT, I DON’T REMEMBER ANY BIG CRIME.” “I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG HE WAS THERE IN PICTURE BUTTE. I HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING THAT. I ONLY REMEMBER HIM BEING IN CHURCH ON SUNDAYS…I REMEMBER HIM BEING IN COALDALE, AND I DON’T KNOW WHEN THAT WAS, BUT IT HAD TO BE AROUND 1960.” KING ELABORATED ON HIS MOTIVATION FOR DONATING THE REVOLVER, STATING, “BECAUSE I’M GETTING OLDER, I WANT [THE REVOLVER] TO BE PRESERVED, AND THERE’S NO BETTER PLACE THAN A MUSEUM. I LIKE THE GALT, SO THAT’S WHY I CHOSE TO DO THIS RIGHT NOW. I JUST WANT THEM PRESERVED. THEY’RE IMPORTANT TO ME, AND I THINK THEY ARE IMPORTANT TO SOUTHERN ALBERTA.” “I WAS BORN, AND GREW UP [IN PICTURE BUTTE]; LIVED AND FARMED. MY FAMILY CAME TO PICTURE BUTTE IN 1929, AND I STILL HAVE FAMILY IN PICTURE BUTTE. PICTURE BUTTE IS WHY THEY ARE SO IMPORTANT TO ME.” “I HAD A LOT OF HANDGUNS [WHEN I LIVED ON THE FARM] AND I’VE GOTTEN RID OF MOST OF THEM…ONCE I MOVED TO THE CITY, I DIDN’T FEEL SAFE WITH THEM IN THE HOUSE. YOU GET BROKE INTO, SOMEBODY STEALS YOUR GUNS AND COMMITS A CRIME, AND IT GOES FROM THERE. I’M GETTING RID OF THE THINGS THAT I WORRY ABOUT, AND [THE] HANDGUN [IS] PART OF THAT. FOR [THIS REVOLVER] TO GO WHERE [IT’S] GOING IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.” ACCORDING TO LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES, WARREN “BUCK” GELDERT BEGAN HIS CAREER IN POLICING WITH THE R.C.M.P. AT THE AGE OF 19. GELDERT SERVED WITH THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICE BEFORE BEING NAMED CHIEF CONSTABLE FOR THE TOWN OF PICTURE BUTTE IN 1955. GELDERT REMAINED CHIEF CONSTABLE UNTIL 1967, WHEN HE ACCEPTED A POSITION AS RECREATION DIRECTOR IN COALDALE, ALBERTA. KING PURCHASED THE SMITH AND WESSON REVOLVER, AND A .38 COLT IN FEBRUARY, 1980 FROM THE TOWN OF PICTURE BUTTE FOR $175, AND HAD BOTH REVOLVERS REGISTERED IN 1980.

ON MARCH 5, 2019, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED DON FLAIG REGARDING HIS DONATION OF ARTWORKS. THE ARTWORKS WERE COLLECTED BY FLAIG’S PARENTS, HELEN AND LLOYD FLAIG. ON THE PAINTING BY MIKE PISKO, FLAIG RECALLED, “ “VIEW FROM THE PORCH” WOULD HAVE BEEN UP IN THE HOUSE FOR QUITE A WHILE. THAT’S VERY FAMILIAR TO ME. IT’S CERTAINLY THE STYLE OF [ART] THAT THEY WOULD DO. MOM WAS ALWAYS MENTIONING THE OIL. IT’S THE KIND OF [ART] THEY WOULD HAVE DONE, THAT THEY WOULD HAVE LIKED.” “I HAVE NO MEMORY OF [KNOWING RIETHMAN OR OTHER SKETCH CLUB MEMBERS]. OCCASIONALLY [MY PARENTS] WOULD MENTION THEIR NAMES, AS YOU MIGHT SPEAK OF FRIENDS. I KNOW THEY WOULD GO OUT, AND DO THE ART ELSEWHERE, OR SOME AT HOME. IT JUST SEEMED NATURAL THAT THEY WOULD DEAL WITH THEIR ARTIST FRIENDS…THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN WHEN I WAS VERY YOUNG.” FLAIG ELABORATED ON HIS PARENTS’ AVID INTEREST IN LOCAL ART, NOTING, “MOM AND DAD ALWAYS HAD ART IN THE HOUSE. THEY WERE ALWAYS DOING ART. I REMEMBER DAD DOING LARGE PLASTER SCULPTURES, IN THE BASEMENT, IN THE CITY, AND MOM WAS ALWAYS PAINTING AND THROWING POTS, AND DOING SOMETHING FUNNY OUT IN THE BACK YARD, ART-WISE. GROWING UP, I ASSUMED EVERYBODY HAD ART IN THE HOUSE, BUT I’VE REALIZED THAT’S NOT THE CASE. NOT EVERYBODY LIKES HAVING ART AROUND, ALTHOUGH [THERE IS EFFORT IN] FINDING ART THAT YOU LIKE, AND ACQUIRING IT, OR CREATING IT, AND KEEPING IT. THERE WAS ALWAYS SOMETHING DIFFERENT HANGING ON THE WALLS IN THE HOUSE. [MOM AND DAD] WERE ALWAYS MOVING IT AROUND. THESE THREE PAINTINGS [BY MIKE PISKO AND ERNEST RIETHMAN], I’M AWARE THAT THESE PEOPLE WERE FRIENDS OF MOM AND DAD. THEY WERE …ARTISTS. I DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT THEM OTHER THAN THAT THEY WOULD OFTEN GO OUT TO SKETCH, AND PAINT, AND THEIR NAMES ARE FAMILIAR TO ME. [THE ARTWORKS] MEANT SOMETHING TO [MY PARENTS], WHETHER THEY BOUGHT THEM OR THEY WERE JUST GIFTS FROM OTHER ARTISTS, I’LL NEVER KNOW, BUT THERE HAS OBVIOUSLY BEEN A LOT OF CARE AND EFFORT PUT INTO THE WORKS BY THE ARTISTS. I HAVE A LARGE NUMBER OF MY MOTHER’S PAINTINGS, BUT THERE ARE LOTS OF THOSE AROUND THE CITY, AND HER WORK IS WELL PRESERVED. THESE ONES…I KNOW THEY ARE LOCAL ARTISTS SOMEWHERE NOW.” FLAIG RECALLED HIS PARENTS AND THEIR HOME IN LETHBRIDGE, “I GREW UP IN TOWN, ON HENDERSON LAKE BOULEVARD. [MY PARENTS] MOVED OUT IN THE EARLY 1970S TO BROXBURN ROAD. SOME OF [THE PAINTINGS] I’D HAVE SEEN THERE AT HENDERSON LAKE BOULEVARD, AND THE REST WOULD HAVE BEEN ON THE FARM. THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN UP ON THE WALLS, OR DOWN IN THE BASEMENT. THINGS WERE ALWAYS MOVING AROUND, BUT THESE ARE PAINTINGS THAT ARE FAMILIAR TO ME. NOT THAT I PAID THAT MUCH ATTENTION TO THEM, BECAUSE THERE WERE ALWAYS PAINTINGS AROUND, AND I NEVER THOUGHT TO ASK.” “MIKE PISKO IS THE NAME THAT COMES [TO MIND ON ARTISTS MY MOM SPENT MORE TIME WITH]; HAS MORE PAINTINGS, MEMORY-WISE, FOR SURE. OUT ON BROXBURN ROAD, THAT’S WHEN THEY MET THE MALKAS’. MOM SPOKE FREQUENTLY OF MELISSA, AND I PROBABLY MET THEM IN PASSING, BECAUSE I WAS ON TO OTHER STUFF. BUT I THINK THAT, WHEREVER THEY WERE, THEY WOULD HAVE REACHED OUT AND GOT IN TOUCH WITH OTHER ARTISTS. PLUS, WHERE THEY WERE ON BROXBURN ROAD, IT WAS A PLACE WHERE WE COULD DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING—BUILDING THINGS, TEARING THINGS DOWN, MAKING ART, BLOWING STUFF UP, AS KIDS DO. THERE WERE ALWAYS ANIMALS, SOME HORSES, AND ONE DISASTROUS ATTEMPT AT RAISING SHEEP BY MY FATHER. THEY WERE ALWAYS INTO SOMETHING.” ON HIS MOTIVATIONS FOR DONATING, FLAIG ELABORATED, “AS TIME GOES BY, WE FIND THE NEED TO TIDY UP AND GET READY FOR THE NEXT STAGE OF LIFE. PART OF IT IS FINDING ROOM FOR SOME OF THESE WORKS OF ART THAT HAVE BEEN IN MY HOUSE AND HAVE SURVIVED, SOMEWHAT MIRACULOUSLY, SINCE MOM AND DAD LEFT A LITTLE FAR AND I TOOK THEM OVER, AS WE WERE EMPTYING OUT THE PLACE. THEY’VE BEEN IN MY BASEMENT, UNAPPRECIATED, AND I SUPPOSE AT SOME RISK OF BEING FORGOTTEN, OR LOST, OR THROWN OUT. THEY DO HAVE SOME SENTIMENTAL VALUE FOR ME, AND I CAN APPRECIATE THE ARTWORK THAT IS IN THE PIECES, MYSELF, TO A LIMITED DEGREE.” “MOM AND DAD HAD REACHED THE END OF THE ROAD...AS BEING ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR FIVE ACRES…OUT ON BROXBURN ROAD. THESE WORKS WERE IN THEIR PLACE, AND, AS WE CLEANED THE PLACE OUT, I TOOK THEM AND PROTECTED THEM, AND SAVED THEM FROM THE BINS…I’M PUTTING THAT AT 2011.” THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY OF THE ARTIST, ERNEST EDWARD RIETHMAN, WAS DEVELOPED BY JANE EDMUNDSON IN 2014, USING A LETHBRIDGE HERALD TRIBUTE ARTICLE FROM DECEMBER 24, 1964 AND RECORD P20120030007.ERNEST EDWARD RIETHMAN (1895 - 1964) WAS BORN IN SWITZERLAND IN 1895 AND WENT ON TO STUDY ART AT AN ACADEMY IN BASIL, THEN AT THE INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL OF INTERIOR DECORATING AND PAINTING. IN 1919 HE CAME TO CANADA SETTLING IN LETHBRIDGE IN 1947. HE WORKED AS AN INTERIOR DECORATOR IN THE CITY, AND HIS WORK WAS HIGHLY SOUGHT. HE WAS AN ACCOMPLISHED LANDSCAPE ARTIST AND WOULD FREQUENTLY JOIN TRIPS ORGANIZED BY A.Y.JACKSON, WHOSE STYLE IS SAID TO HAVE HEAVILY INFLUENCED RIETHMAN’S. DURING HIS TIME WITH THE LETHBRIDGE SKETCH CLUB, HE SERVED AS BOTH HEAD OF COMMITTEES AND TAUGHT LESSONS IN FIGURE DRAWING. RIETHMAN WAS SUCCESSFUL IN WHAT HE DID, AS CRITICS ENJOYED HIS WORK AND HE WAS ABLE TO FREQUENTLY DISPLAY IN EXHIBITIONS. ACCORDING TO LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES COMPILED IN 2019, RIETHMAN WAS EXHIBITED FREQUENTLY IN SOLO AND GROUP EXHIBITIONS IN LETHBRIDGE THROUGH THE 1950S-1960S. PRIOR TO HIS PAINTING CAREER, RIETHMAN WAS INVOLVED WITH THEATRE GROUPS AND PAGEANTS IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA, DESIGNING BACKGROUNDS AND CREATING FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS FOR PERFORMANCES. IN 1955, RIETHMAN AND K.E. HUDSON BECAME PARTNERS IN RIETHMAN—HUDSON PAINTING AND DECORATING IN LETHBRIDGE. RIETHMAN’S ARTWORKS WERE OFTEN FRAMED, EXHIBITED AND SOLD AT GAINSBOROUGH GALLERIES, LETHBRIDGE BEGINNING IN 1958. GAINSBOROUGH GALLERIES OPERATED IN CALGARY AND OPENED A BRANCH IN LETHBRIDGE IN 1958, WITH HEINO DEEKEN AS MANAGER IN LETHBRIDGE. GAINSBOROUGH GALLERIES WERE KNOWN TO EXHIBIT ARTWORKS BY SOUTHERN ALBERTA ARTISTS AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE LETHBRIDGE SKETCH CLUB. IN A STATEMENT TO THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD IN 1962, RIETHMAN STATED ABOUT HIS PRACTICE, “ALTHOUGH I PREFER LANDSCAPES AND OCCASIONAL PORTRAITS, NOW AND THEN I EXPERIMENT A LITTLE FROM NATURALISTIC INTO MODERN STYLE…ONCE IN A WHILE IT IS GOOD [TO] CHANGE STYLE TO KEEP FROM GETTING IN A RUT…I PAINT AS I FEEL AND TO HECK WITH THE PUBLIC. POSSIBLY I’M NOT COMMERCIAL ENOUGH, BUT I PREFER HAVING THE FREEDOM TO EXPRESS MYSELF AS I WISH…I AM GRADUALLY RETIRING FROM BUSINESS…AND PLAN TO PAINT AND PAINT AND PAINT. I MAY NOT BE THE BEST, BUT I CERTAINLY HAVE FUN.” FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING THE FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION AND LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES, PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE P20190006001-GA. UPDATE: ON 24 OCTOBER 2019, ERNEST E. RIETHMAN’S GRANDDAUGHTER LINDA BAINES SHARED A “PERSONAL RECORD” WITH MUSEUM STAFF. THE LATTER DAY SAINT DOCUMENT WAS COMPLETED BY HER GRANDMOTHER CLARA S. RIETHMAN--ERNEST’S WIFE. IT IS A HANDWRITTEN CHRONOLOGY OF CLARA’S LIFE IN SWITZERLAND AND ALBERTA. PERSONAL INFORMATION CONTAINED WITHIN THE DOCUMENT EXTENDS TO ERNEST’S LIFE .
