History / Biographical
The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park Association (WGIPPA) is an organization within Rotary International comprised mainly of Rotarians from Districts 5360, 5370 and 5390, although any Rotarian in good standing can be a member of the WGIPPA. The WGIPPA continues to promote the peace park concept, and peace among nations generally, through annual assemblies and ceremonies like 'Hands Across the Border'. "The establishing of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park is essentially a Rotary project. At the first annual good-will meeting fostered by the Cardston Rotary Club held at the Prince of Wales Hotel, Waterton Lakes Park, on Saturday, July 4th, 1931, between the Rotarians of Alberta and Montana, the following resolution was presented for consideration and carried, unanimously. Moved by Rev Canon S.H. Middleton, Cardston, and seconded by Harry B. Mitchell of Great Falls. 'Whereas one hundred members of the Rotary Clubs, representing the cities of Cardston, Lethbridge and Calgary of Alberta; Great Falls, Kalispell and Missoula of Montana, and Estevan, Saskatchewan, are assembled together attending meeting at the Waterton Lakes National Park; An Whereas, it has been decided that a similar annual meeting be held alternately at Glacier Park, Montana and Waterton National Park, Alberta; Therefore, be it Resolved, that the proper authorities be petitioned to commence negotiations to establish the two parks indictaed as a permanent International Peace Park, which shall be definitely set aside for this laudable purpose. Pledging our loyalty and allegiance to foster all international relationships.' Negotiations were immediately commenced with the local representatives of the Governments concerned, Brig. General J.S. Stewart, C.M.G., D.S.O., M.P. for Alberta, and the Hon. Scott Leavitt for Montana. Bills were duly presented during the 1932 session before the Federal Government, Washington, and the Dominion Government, Ottawa, both Houses working separately and conjointly in their respective spheres, which resulted in the official proclamation that the two parks be henceforth designated as 'the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park'..."

History / Biographical
The Mathesis Club of Lethbridge was organized on 11 September 1912 by a group of nine women who were interested in self education and self improvement during a period in the city’s history when formal educational opportunities for women were very rare. The club name was taken from a Greek word meaning "searcher of knowledge". A committee consisting of Mrs. Alice J. Heeb, Mrs. Cumming and Mrs. Maurine Daniel was appointed to draft a constitution for the new club. The club’s objectives as stated in that constitution included "self-improvement and united effort toward the highest development of home and community". The first officers of the Mathesis Club were Mrs. F. Stoltze (president), Mrs. A. M. Lafferty (vice president), Mrs. Alice J. Heeb (secretary), Mrs. F. Cumming (treasurer). The club was organized into ‘departments’ that reflected the study interests of the members: Music and Art, History and Literature. Members chose topics of interest from these broad categories and then researched, wrote and presented a paper on their topic at the regular meetings. When the club began meetings were held every two weeks, but later the meeting schedule became monthly. In addition to the departmental programs, meetings frequently featured guest speakers who presented on a variety of topics ranging from religion to scientific advances.At the time there was no public library in Lethbridge and the group arranged to borrow thirty books from the collection of McGill University in Montreal which would remain in the home of one of the members for the use of any of those in the group. During the First World War members joined the local Council of Women and Traveler’s Aid to work through those organizations. Fundraising teas and other events were also held. In World War II the club entertained the armed forces for a week. Membership in the club reached a high in 1917 with 87 members, by 2002 the membership had fallen to 20. Over the years, educational and self-improvement programs became widely available for women and the role of the Mathesis Club as a provider of those opportunities was diminished. A declining and aging membership put more and more pressure on the club, until in 2007 the members decided to dissolve the Mathesis Club. The final meeting was held at Luigi’s Restaurant, 1119 Mayor Magrath Drive South, on 19 June 2007.

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
Annora Brown was born outside of Red Deer in 1899 and died at the age of 88 in Deep Cove, British Columbia in 1987 where she retired. Brown is one of the Alberta’s foremost early artists. Based for much of her life in historic Fort Macleod, Brown played a major role in creating a ‘picture’ of Southern Alberta: its wild landscape, First Nations, pioneer rural communities, local history- above all its wondrous nature symbolized by the wildflower. Her work was able to capture the culture of the First nation communities that she lived near. Her father was Edmund Foster Brown and mother was Elizabeth Ethel (Cody) Brown. Her mother supported and encouraged Brown’s love for art and from 1925-1929 Brown attended the Ontario College of Art in Toronto. She returned in 1929 and developed and art program for Calgary’s Mounted Royal College but later had to leave due to her mother’s illness. A student of the celebrated landscape painters, known as the Group of Seven (1920-1933), Brown’s artistic practice spans the 1930s to mid-1980s. During that time, she cobbled together a living as an artist, often by teaching, illustrating books and magazines, and selling, whenever she could, her captivating paintings in watercolor, tempera oil and later serigraph prints. In 1945-1950, brown worked as a respected artist and teacher at the Banff School of Fine Arts. She was also commissioned to paint over 200 western wild flowers for the Glenbow Foundation. Brown’s work was also included in Crescent Heights High School in Calgary, University of Alberta in Edmonton, United College in Winnipeg, and the Canadian Handicrafts Guild in Montreal. She was also awarded a prize in the Alberta Government’s 1955 Jubilee Contest for Alberta painters. In 1965 Brown retired to Deep Cove British Columbia to paint and garden. She had given a “voice” to a region that had been rarely presented in Canadian art. Her attention to the unique aspects of Old Man’s Country like Niitsitapi, the character and isolation of its small rural communities as well as its unforgettable environment was expressed mainly through her focus on wildflowers and native plants. Buoyed by the conviction that a woman’s activities “need not be limited to polishing furniture and raising babies”, Brown was also a writer and author of two books: the Western Canadian classic Old Man’s Garden and her autobiographical Sketches from Life. She was the first woman to receive an honorary degree from the University of Lethbridge in 1971 for her contribution to “western art and living.” (written by Mary-Beth Laviolette; Summer 2016 Gallery Exhibit at Galt Museum)

History / Biographical
Tomomi Okutake originally immigrated to Canada in 1907, and was employed with the CPR in Vancouver. He then moved to Hardiville, Alberta in 1911, and resided there until enlisting with the Princess Pat Canadian Infantry in 1917. After serving two years in Britain and France, he was honourably discharged, receiving the British War Medal and Victory Medal. Upon his return to Canada, Tomomi began his work in the No. 6 coal mine. In 1930, he travelled back to Japan to marry Tsuru Genka, and together they moved back to Hardieville where Tomomi continued his work. The No. 8 coal mine site was moved to Lethbridge shortly after, where he continued as a miner until his retirement in 1953. Once Japanese citizens were allowed to live in Lethbridge, the couple moved into the city. Tomomi and Tsuru Okutake resided in the City of Lethbridge from 1961 until Tomomi’s passing in 1971. Throughout his time in Alberta, Tomomi became a founding member of the Lethbridge Buddhist Temple and the Lethbridge Honpa Buddhist Temple. He also played a big part in being the interpreter or spokesperson for those who couldn’t speak English in the Okinawan community. After Tomomi passed away, Tsuru enrolled at the Community College to learn English as a second language. She joined the Senior Centre and learned new skills such as weaving and dancing. In her final years, she lived in the Taber Long Term Care unit where she later passed away in 1990. The Okutake family had two adopted daughters, Patricia Yuriko (Sassa) and Esther Tsuru (Ayukawa).

History / Biographical
Beta Sigma Phi International "In 1931, during the Great Depression, there was a need for an organization that could bring women together and expose them to a social, cultural and educational climate that was not available in those difficult times. Most important, there was a need for friendship and support from other women. Beta Sigma Phi was created out of this need. It did not take long before Beta Sigma Phis were helping others. Members worked together to raise $22 million in war bonds during World War II. The 1950s brought peace and prosperity to the world, and Beta Sigma Phi membership doubled. This era was filled with grand balls, elegant teas and the growing strength of sisterhood as thousands of women joined Beta Sigma Phi. As the times have changed, so has Beta Sigma Phi. The 1960s and 1970s found our organization less formal, but the ideals were the same. Now in the 21st Century, our over 165,000 members find the more we grow, the more valuable we become to our sisters and to our communities. The Beta Sigma Phi woman will continue to face challenges and cherish opportunities as she moves into the future. Typical chapters enjoy socials that range from informal gatherings to gala affairs that often include friends and family. Fascinating cultural programs offer insight into subjects that range from the arts to gardening to in-home businesses. Membership in our organization provides opportunities to contribute to your community, develop lifelong friendships, and polish leadership skills. Our members raise more than $3 million for local charities and donate over 200,0000 volunteer hours in an average year. Each chapter determines its own service projects and participation is always voluntary. Chapters have created their own International Funds that donate millions of dollars to health research groups, hunger projects, and other worthwhile causes. Members and their families can receive assistance through our International Loan, Scholarship and Disaster Funds ... Unlike a college sorority, our organization has members of all ages and educational backgrounds. Our sisterhood constantly redefines itself through the diversity and vitality of its members who share their ideas, talents and enthusiasm." [Source: Beta Sigma Phi International webpage, history section: http://www.betasigmaphi.org/history.php]MCA, Lethbridge Community College, Shock Trauma Air Rescue Service (STARS) and St. Michael's Health Centre. Beta Sigma Phi in Lethbridge Beta Sigma Phi was founded in Lethbridge 19 July 1945 in a ceremony held at the Marquis Hotel. Mrs. Esther Lewis, a traveling representative of Beta Sigma Phi International with headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri, read the pledge ritual to 22 women who formed the Kappa Chapter. As reported on page eight in The Lethbridge Herald of 19 July 1945, Mrs. Lewis "will read the pledge ritual for the initiation at a table with a large bowl of yellow roses flanked on either side with tall black candles." The number of members dropped to 10 by the time of the first 'Ritual of Jewels' ceremony. The organization remained at 10 members until 1949, when members from Kappa Chapter split to form Beta Chapter. On 3 October 1950 the first meeting of Beta Sigma Phi City Council was held. Another chapter, Tau, was created later as was Nu Phi Mu Junior Chapter. In Lethbridge, the members work their way up through various levels according to a planned program of the larger organization. The members meet in each others' homes twice monthly and take turns making educational presentations on a variety of topics: music, health, history, home, famous women and literature. The local chapters of Beta Sigma Phi have provided volunteer and/or financial support to organizations including Harbour House, Meals on wheels, Canadian Cancer Society, Arthritis Society, Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation. Beta Sigma Phi also provides scholarships to Lethbridge College and the Kiwanis Music Festival.

History / Biographical
Waterton Park is the name of the townsite located within Waterton Lakes National Park and is identified provincially as part of Improvement District No. 4 which itself encompasses the entire park. Residential lots were first surveyed in 1910 and tentatively approved in 1911. Additional lots were incrementally surveyed for public leasing, a practice which continued until 1959 when it was announced no new lots would be leased. Renewable residential and business lot leases are an agreement between individuals and the Government of Canada (for the Crown) for a period of 42 years pending satisfactory completion of building requirements. Over time, leaseholders discovered needs specific to this fairly remote location and stepped up to meet them through a variety of volunteer organizations sometimes, but not always, in association with provincial or federal government support. This fonds includes the activity records of some, but not all, of these organizations, their evolution and, in some cases, demise.
Scope and Content
The documents in this fonds go well beyond the scope of the Waterton Park Community Association which amassed many of them for caretaking purposes. Included are
A partial record of the Waterton School District including lists of students, operational correspondence, financial statements, etc. There are several years where documents are missing but does include the final records when the School District was dissolved in 1995 and its only school, the Waterton Park School, was closed and ownership was transferred to the Waterton Park Community Association for use as a community centre. The school district was operated under provincial government legislation known as the Alberta School Act.
The entire record of the Waterton TV Association from its organization in 1962 to its demise in 1993 and the transfer of its lease on Crandell Mountain to the federal department of Energy Mines and Resources Canada.
A partial record of the Waterton Cultural and Recreation Society from start to finish, ca. 1980 to 1993.
The Waterton Park Community Association, established in 1993 and still in operation (2017). A sub-group of the WPCA also operates the Waterton Lakes National Park golf course under a legally binding 35-year agreement with the Crown which began in the late 1980s.
Photographs from the Beargrass Festival Society which operated as an independent society in Waterton from 1986 to 1997. This group organized an annual event once each summer to stimulate tourism to the park during the slow weeks in late August. None of the photographs are dated or identified but are grouped into like categories.
The Green Team was funded in 1993 as a separate society which received operating money from the Waterton Park Community Association, Parks Canada and various provincial grants. Its goal was to create an awareness for the need to recycle waste materials in the entire park, not just the townsite. This group was dissolved and recycling, as of 2009, became the responsibility of Parks Canada.
Improvement District No. 4 is the local government within the park which follows the Alberta Municipal Government Act. It is the only provincial taxing authority within the park. The ID, long dormant, was reactivated in the late 1990s and is still in operation (2017). Minutes of meetings are included in this fond.
Assorted but limited documents produced by Parks Canada.
