Bradley Lee for the project "The Ties that Bind: Building the CPR, Building a Place in Canada," organized by the Foundation to Commemorate the Chinese Railroad Workers in Canada
Physical Description
5 digital audion files and a transcript
History / Biographical
The Foundation to Commemorate the Chinese Railroad Workers in Canada (FCCRWC) is a registered charitable organization. The goals of the foundation include promoting the understanding and awareness of the contribution to Canada by the Chinese Railroad Workers who participated in the construction of the first transcontinental railway (the CPR) that united Canada geographically and politically; promoting the awareness of the government's legislation of unjust Immigration Acts against the Chinese pioneers and their families; establishing scholarships; and sponsoring other Canadian charitable organizations to promote Chinese Canadian History
Custodial History
The interview focuses on the story of Lee Duck and his family. The project website provides the following summary Above all, the late Lee Duck, patriarch of the Lethbridge, Alberta, Chinese community, traditionalist, Nationalist, village benefactor and a worker on the Canadian Pacific Railway, was pragmatic about his family's future. So says his grandson, Ron Lee, a high school teacher in Calgary, who has recorded his family's history since his grandfather left China in 1905 to follow the dream of the "Gold Mountain men." Lee Duck, at 20 years old, boarded the Empress of India in Macau for Vancouver, his $500 head tax paid by returning railway workers. On arrival, he visited his family association in Chinatown and landed his first job, greasing the undercarriage of a CPR steam engine, and then traveling with it to destinations across the Rocky Mountains. During his travels, he set his eyes on Lethbridge in Southern Alberta and opened a dry cleaning business. Lee Duck prospered and traveled back and forth to China, where he married his first wife and started a family. Then he traveled back to Lethbridge and took a second wife, Ron's grandmother, Der Soon Yet, who was part of Chinese Nationalist leader Dr. Sun Yat-Sen's entourage during a visit to Canada "to raise money for the revolution." https://www.mhso.ca/tiesthatbind/RonLee.php

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.
