Ledger - 6 cm
History / Biographical
This cemetery originated as a direct request for interment space on the south side of the city as the old Pioneer Cemetery (St. Patrick's) was not meeting the needs of the citizens of the time. 1901 the Anglican Church started a private cemetery originating with Plan One - Block One located in the centre of today's Mountain View, purchased by the City in 1942. 1905, an undertaker named B. C. Moore started a second private cemetery just east of the original Anglican Church block, subsequently turned over to the City in 1909. 1909, the death of Lou Louenthal prompted the Hebrew Community in Lethbridge to start their own cemetery so they purchased 1.2 acres west of Moore's Cemetery, this cemetery is also now a part of Mountain View Cemetery as well; and is maintained by the City under a special arrangement.

Physical Description
36cm of textual records; 61 photographic prints, 56 negatives
History / Biographical
The Southern Alberta Group for the Environment (SAGE) was formed in 1984 by a group of environmentally concerned citizens based in Lethbridge and the surrounding area. Originally known as SAEG (Southern Albertans for the Environment Group), the group works to bring awareness to the public about environmental issues concerning Southern Alberta. They actively engage with local, provincial, and federal policy-makers to ensure the environment is protected for future generations to enjoy. SAGE holds monthly meetings, they write newsletters, organize public programs, and work to educate the community on environmental issues. SAGE has been an advocate of recycling programs throughout the City, as well as working to maintain protected areas, biodiversity conservation, renewable energy, environmental sustainability in urban planning projects, and many more issues impacting the community. SAGE members have been active sponsors for many other local environmental initiatives around Southern Alberta. For example, they have worked with the Oldman River Advisory Committee and were consultants for the Stafford Coulee Slumping project in the mid-1990s to ensure the safety of the neighborhoods overlooking the coulees and the habitat of animals living in the coulees. SAGE continues to advocate for the Southern Alberta environment and to engage the public on the importance of environmental sustainability in all aspects of life.

History / Biographical
Dr. Menno Boldt (d. January 4, 2019) was a faculty member of the University of Lethbridge, Department of Sociology, specializing in suicide prevention. He work on the topic of suicide, particularly in the Southern Alberta region, fueled Dr. Boldt to actively pursue awareness, preventative, and rehabilitation options for individuals throughout Alberta. This passion for better treatment, care, compassion, and understanding from the Alberta Government and general population led Dr. Boldt to become involved in multiple organizations and committees throughout his life. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, following the work of Dr. Boldt (specifically, the Boldt Report), Lethbridge became a leader in the research and implementation of comprehensive and innovative suicide prevention programs and services in Alberta, which had national and international significance. As an academic, he used his influence as part of the University of Lethbridge faculty to gain public and private funding for the implementation of various suicide prevention and awareness organizations and facilities. Throughout his career, Dr. Boldt collaborated with multiple organizations such as The Just Group on the Alberta Suicide Prevention History Project, the Task Force on Suicide which was founded by multiple community members including Dr. Boldt in 1976, and many other groups and individuals. Dr. Boldt was dedicated to the prevention and awareness of suicide among individuals, and how it affects the greater Alberta population.

Photograph of Dr. Gerry Probe, approximately 40 years of age. The Dr. Gerald B. Probe Elementary School in Lethbridge is named in his honour. Gerald B. Probe, Ph. D. (1936 - 1989), was an outstanding educator who provided leadership in Lethbridge School District No. 51 for almost two decades. Gerry began his career in Regina before coming to Lethbridge School District No. 51 in 1970 as Director of Personnel. Dr. Probe was subsequently appointed Associate Superintendent of Personnel and Facilities Planning, and served one year (1987-88) as Acting Superintendent. Dr. Probe played a major role in directing public education in Lethbridge. He was responsible for all aspects of staffing and had significant involvement in the planning and construction of new facilities. His main impact, however, came from the consideration and support he provided for the many individuals who comprise Lethbridge School District No. 51. The term "people person" could well have been derived from Gerry's life. Gerry Probe was committed to providing the best possible educational opportunities for children. His dedication had a major impact on the quality of education in our city. (Biography from the Probe School website: "https://gpro.lethsd.ab.ca/about", downloaded January 9, 2020.
