History / Biographical
The Canadian Federation of University Women - Lethbridge & District (CFUW) is a voluntary, self-funded organization for women who graduated from university in Canada. The national branch of this organization, Canadian Federation of University Women, was started in 1919, and has since grown to include over 100 regional clubs across the country. The Lethbridge area of the organization was started on May 13, 1944 with 36 members. According to their mission statement, the CFUW has worked to enhance women’s and girls’ status across the globe and to promote human rights, public education, social justice, and peace. The purpose of the organization was to provide an opportunity for intellectual activities, friendship and social activities among university graduates in the Lethbridge community. They worked to encourage and sustain members in an intelligent interest in public affairs and to encourage a more active participation in such affairs by qualified women. They provide scholarships through the University of Lethbridge to students of high academic standing. They are actively involved in local and national political and social issues, and they work to provide for the well-being of their members and women across the globe. CFUW has membership fees, governing body and duties, that included holding positions on their standing committees, and actively participating in meetings, elections, dissolutions of the group. They hold monthly meetings, Christmas parties, spring banquets and president’s teas. They also attend conferences such as those in Kelowna B.C. and St. John’s Newfoundland. CFUW works to encourage the life-long learning of women and girls and to educate and empower young women and girls as active members of society.

ON OCTOBER 23, 2017, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED LYNN VILLIGER WITH LETHBRIDGE FIRE AND EMERGENCY SERVICES ABOUT THE DONATION OF A ZOLL M-SERIES DEFIBRILLATOR AND CARDIAC MONITOR. ACCORDING TO CORRESPONDENCE WITH VILLIGER, THE ZOLL M-SERIES WERE USED WITH LETHBRIDGE FIRE AND EMEMRGENCY SERVICES UPON THEIR ACQUISITION IN 2003, AND WERE REPLACED IN 2011. THE ZOLL M-SERIES CARDIAC MONITORS WERE THE FIRST TO OPERATE WITH BIPHASIC WAVEFORM ENERGY, ENABLING SAFER AND MORE EFFICIENT DEFIBRILLATION. VILLIGER ELABORATED ON THE ZOLL M-SERIES DEFIBRILLATORS, NOTING, “IT’S A CARDIAC MONITOR, NOT ACTUALLY AN AED. IT DOES HAVE AN AED FUNCTION BUILT RIGHT INTO IT, WHICH WAS ONE OF THE AMAZING THINGS IN THIS NEW GENERATION OF CARDIAC MONITORS. IT ALLOWED US TO DO SO MUCH MORE THAN WE WERE ABLE TO DO IN THE PAST. NOT ONLY IS IT A CARDIAC MONITOR; IT’S A CARDIAC DEFIBRILLATOR; IT CAN ALSO CARDIOVERT AND IT CAN PACE AS WELL. THOSE ARE FUNCTIONS THAT WE NEVER HAD IN PREVIOUS GENERATIONS OF MONITORS. IT ALSO CAN MEASURE VITAL SIGNS. IT CAN MEASURE A PERSON’S BLOOD PRESSURE; IT CAN MEASURE THE CARBON DIOXIDE CONTENT OF A PERSON’S BLOOD THROUGH INFRA-RED TECHNOLOGY. IT CAN ALSO RECOGNIZE THE OXYGEN SATURATION OF THEIR BLOOD USING THE SAME TYPE OF TECHNOLOGY, SO IT WAS QUITE A BIG JUMP FOR US. WE WENT FROM A DIFFERENT TYPE OF, IT WAS CALLED, MONOPHASIC ENERGY (WHICH IS THE TYPE OF ENERGY THAT WAS USED IN OLD CARDIAC MONITORS), AND THIS WAS, IN FACT, THE FIRST OF ITS TYPE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. ZOLL WAS A DOCTOR WHO INVENTED A TYPE OF CARDIAC ENERGY CALLED BIPHASIC ENERGY, AND IT WAS JUST A MORE EFFICIENT TYPE OF ENERGY FOR ALL OF THOSE PURPOSES. IT WAS JUST MORE EFFICIENT AT DOING [PACING, DEFIBRILLATION, AND CARDIOVERSION], AND, IN DOING SO, BIPHASIC ENERGY IS ACTUALLY SAFER, BECAUSE PRACTITIONERS (NURSES, DOCTORS, PARAMEDICS) ALL HAVE BEEN KILLED USING MONOPHASIC ENERGY IN THE PAST, BY TOUCHING THE PATIENT WHEN THEY GOT DEFIBRILLATED, AND THIS IS QUITE A BIT MORE FORGIVING, JUST IN THE NATURE OF THE WAY THE ELECTRICITY IS DELIVERED TO THE PATIENT. NOT ONLY IS IT MORE EFFICIENT AT CONVERTING THE HEART RHYTHM; IT’S ALSO MORE EFFICIENT, OR LESS EFFICIENT, AT KILLING PEOPLE BY ACCIDENT.” “[THE PEOPLE USING THESE MACHINES] WOULD BE PRACTITIONERS, OR…PARAMEDICS ARE TAUGHT TO MAKE SURE THE WHOLE SCENE IS SAFE BEFORE ANYBODY DISCHARGES THESE TYPE OF MONITORS, AND SO THEY…ARE LOOKING FOR NEGATIVE SPACE AROUND THE PATIENT; THAT NOBODY’S TOUCHING THE PATIENT; NOBODY’S TOUCHING THE GROUND, WHICH COULD BE WET; NOBODY’S TOUCHING THE COT THE PATIENT MAY BE LYING ON. THAT’S INGRAINED IN MOST PARAMEDICS. THERE’S A METHOD TO THAT WHOLE PROCESS…I’M SURE PEOPLE HAVE HEARD SIMILAR THINGS IN CPR COURSES. ONE OF THE OTHER WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT THIS (AT THE TIME, I DIDN’T THINK IT WAS SO WONDERFUL) WAS, WE GOT HANDS-FREE DEFIBRILLATION FOR THE FIRST TIME. IN THE OLD DAYS, WE HAD PADDLES, AND EVERYBODY REMEMBERS PADDLES FROM THE REALLY-COOL MEDICAL SHOWS ON TV. WE PUT PADS ON THE PATIENT, AND THERE’S CABLES ATTACHED TO THE PADS, WHICH REQUIRES A SAFER PROCESS, BUT NOBODY IS TOUCHING THE PATIENT WHATSOEVER, EVEN WITH PADDLES, AT THAT TIME. THERE’S BENEFITS TO BOTH. IT WAS JUST QUITE A BIT SIMPLER.” “I STARTED [WORKING WITH LETHBRIDGE FIRE AND EMERGENCY SERVICES] IN 1988…WE HAD CARDIAC MONITORS IN THOSE DAYS. THEY WERE PHYSIO CONTROL, OR MEDTRONIC CARDIAC MONITORS, AND THEY DID DEFIBRILLATION. LATER ON, THEY STARTED TO DO CARDIOVERSION, AND PACING AS WELL…THEY HAD COMPONENTS THAT COULD FIT INTO EACH OTHER. ONE OF THE COMPONENTS WAS A RECORDER DEVICE, JUST LIKE A FOUR-TRACK CASSETTE TAPE RECORDER, AND IT LITERALLY WAS THAT. IT SLIPPED RIGHT IN BETWEEN THE CARDIAC MONITOR, AND THE REST OF THE MECHANISM FOR DEFIBRILLATION, OR FOR CARDIOVERSION AND PACING. IT RECORDED EVERYBODY’S VOICE IN THE ROOM, SO YOU COULD CALL OUT DRUG CALCULATIONS AND TIMES…WHICH YOU HAD TO DO IN THOSE DAYS. YOU WOULD TYPICALLY SLIP A CLOCK ONTO THE MONITOR, AND WATCH THE TIME…IT WAS A VERY STRANGE FEELING TO GO BACK AND REVIEW, AND HAVE VOICE RECORDING…THIS MONITOR DOES RECORD EVERYTHING. IT HAS A BUILT-IN TIMER, AND IT SUMMARIZES THE INCIDENT INSTEAD, SO IT PRINTED OUT EXACTLY ALL THE TIMES FOR EVERYTHING THAT YOU DID – INTERVENTIONS - BUT IF YOU WANTED TO GIVE DRUGS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, YOU STILL HAD TO MARK THEM DOWN AT THE TIME…” “[IN] 2003, WE DECIDED TO PURCHASE THESE MONITORS. IT WAS SOMEWHAT OF A PROTEST, BECAUSE EVERYBODY WAS USED TO USING THE OLD CARDIAC MONITORS, AND THEY LOVED HAVING PADDLES ON. I REMEMBER, JUST IN FUN, OF COURSE, I MADE A LITTLE PROTEST SIGN THAT SAID 'WE WANT PADDLES, WE WANT PADDLES' AT THE TIME. AFTER YOU USE HANDS-FREE FOR A WHILE, YOU FIND OUT IT’S ACTUALLY QUITE A BIT SAFER. THERE WAS ALWAYS SOME SAFETY INVOLVED IN WATCHING YOUR PARTNER DO THIS – WITH THE GEL ON THE PADDLES, AND, THEN, YOU COULD ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY SEE HIM LEANING OVER THE PATIENT…THERE’S WARNING BUZZERS...WITH HANDS-FREE, I COULD SEE A CHANGE ON THE MONITOR, AND IT WOULD SET OFF AN ALARM, AND THEN THEY COULD CHARGE IT UP, AND DEFIBRILLATE IT, AND YOU HAD TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYONE’S AWARE.” “THEY TRIED TO INVOLVE EVERYBODY…IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE MEDICAL TRAINING OFFICER…IN THE TRANSITION BETWEEN THIS MONITOR AND THE OLD VERSION, I BECAME THE MEDICAL TRAINING OFFICER MYSELF, SO WE HAD SOME INFLUENCE FROM THERE…AT THAT TIME, PROBABLY ONLY 20% OF OUR EMPLOYEES WERE PARAMEDICS. THE REST WERE EMT’S, WHO BECAME EMT’S AFTER THEY WERE FIREFIGHTERS. NOW, WE HIRE ONLY PARAMEDICS, AND WE TRAIN THEM TO BE FIREFIGHTERS. ONCE YOU HAD A LOT OF PARAMEDICS ON BOARD, WE COULD HAVE LONGER CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THOSE KINDS OF THINGS. THOSE TYPES OF CONVERSATIONS USUALLY ORIGINATED IN ACLS COURSES…WE TOOK THEM EVERY 3 YEARS, IN-HOUSE. ACLS WAS ADVANCED CARDIAC LIFE SUPPORT. THEY ARE THE GUYS, REALLY, THAT SET THE STANDARDS FOR ALL OF THE CLINICAL THINGS INVOLVING PATIENTS THAT HAVE CONDITIONS THAT NEED INTERVENTIONS WITH CARDIAC MONITORS AND AED’S, BUT THEY DON’T DETERMINE WHICH UNITS YOU USE. THEY’RE NOT REALLY ALLOWED TO SAY WHICH TYPE OF ENERGY, OR MONITOR, IS MORE EFFICIENT THAN THE OTHER ONE. WE LEFT THAT UP TO DATA COLLECTION THAT HAPPENED AFTERWARDS.” “WE WERE AT THE FOREFRONT OF [THE CHANGE TO BIPHASIC MONTIORS]. WE HAD A REALLY COOL POSITION IN THAT, BECAUSE, IN THOSE DAYS, ALBERTA HEALTH SERVICES DIDN’T GOVERN AMBULANCE SERVICES ANYWHERE IN ALBERTA. WE WERE THE LARGEST EMS SERVICE IN THE SOUTH ZONE, AND WE HAD DECIDED ON THE ZOLL CARDIAC MONITOR, SO SOME OF THE SMALLER SERVICES WERE CURIOUS. THEY CAME TO US, SAID, 'WHAT’S GOING ON? WHAT ARE YOU USING? HOW DOES IT WORK?' WE CONVINCED ALMOST EVERY OPERATOR IN THE SOUTH ZONE, AT LEAST WEST OF MEDICINE HAT, TO BUY INTO THE ZOLLS, AND AT ONE TIME, EVERY EMS OPERATOR IN THE SOUTH WAS USING THE ZOLL M SERIES, INCLUDING THE COLLEGE, WHO WAS TRAINING PARAMEDICS AND EMT’S. WE WERE AT THE FOREFRONT OF THAT, AND WE INVITED ALL THESE OTHER PEOPLE, AND, BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, WE WERE ALL SPEAKING THE SAME LANGUAGE.” “WE HEARD ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY – BIPHASIC ELECTRICITY – THROUGH ADVANCED CARDIAC LIFE SUPPORT COURSES, SO WE HAD TO LOOK INTO IT. WE WERE LEARNING, THROUGH THE DATA THAT WAS COLLECTED, THAT IT WAS SIMPLY SAFER, MORE EFFICIENT…IT JUST CAME DOWN TO IT THAT WE ENDED UP THERE FOR A LOT OF DIFFERENT REASONS. THESE GUYS WERE THE ONLY ONES USING BIPHASIC TECHNOLOGY AT THE TIME. IT WASN’T UNTIL A FEW YEARS LATER THAT THEIR COMPETITORS STARTING USING IT, AND THEY STILL CAN’T USE EXACTLY THE SAME TYPE OF BIPHASIC TECHNOLOGY. THIS PARTICULAR TYPE, IT’S CALLED ‘RECTO LINEAR BIPHASIC’; IS PATENTED BY THIS COMPANY; AND IT IS STILL CONSIDERED THE MOST EFFICIENT TYPE OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY FOR DOING ALL THOSE THINGS – PACING, CARDIOVERSION, DEFIBRILLATION.” “ORIGINALLY, WE BOUGHT 6 OR 8 [ZOLL M-SERIES MACHINES]. WE HAD EVOLVED TO 4 UNITS ON THE STREET. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT IN 2004…ONE OF OUR DEPUTY CHIEFS STARTED THE PROCESS OF HAVING ALL OF OUR FRONT-LINE ENGINES, OR PUMPS, ON THE FIRE SIDE, BE ADVANCED LIFE SUPPORT, BECAUSE ALL OF OUR FOLKS WERE PARAMEDICS, SO WE STARTED CARRYING THESE TYPES OF MONITORS NOT ONLY ON OUR AMBULANCES BUT ON EVERY SINGLE FIRE TRUCK AS WELL.” “THERE ARE STILL PEOPLE USING THIS, AND IT’S STILL A GREAT MONITOR. I’D TAKE IT OUT ON THE STREET, AND BE QUITE COMFORTABLE, AND HAVE FAITH THAT IT WOULD DO EVERYTHING NECESSARY.” WHEN ASKED ABOUT HIS MEMORIES OF USING THE ZOLL M-SERIES MONITOR, VILLIGER RECALLED, “WE DO SO MANY EVENTS…PROBABLY 50% OF THE EVENTS WE WOULD GO TO, WE WOULD CONNECT THE CARDIAC MONITOR TO PATIENTS, AT LEAST TO MONITOR THEIR HEART RHYTHM AS PART OF A COMPLETE CLINICAL ASSESSMENT. I CAN’T REMEMBER A PARTICULAR EVENT. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT STOOD OUT IS THEY MADE THE ‘M’ SERIES AS A STREET-WORTHY PARAMEDIC VERSION OF A HOSPITAL-TYPE CARDIAC MONITOR. THEY MADE THEM TOUGH AND THEY WOULD THROW THEM…OFF A MOVING AMBULANCE, OR OFF THE BACK OF A FIRE TRUCK, JUST TO SHOW THEM HOW TOUGH THEY WERE. SOME OF THE OLD VIDEOS…SHOWS THEM EITHER THROWING THEM OFF A BALCONY, OR HAVING A TRUCK DRIVE OVER THEM, AND THEY STILL FUNCTION. OR, SOMEBODY BLASTING IT WITH WATER FROM A HOSE LINE…SO THEY MADE A MONITOR THAT WAS A LITTLE BIT TOUGHER, AND A LITTLE BIT MORE RUGGED THAN THEY HAD BEEN IN THE PAST.” “I REMEMBER US GOING OUT AND SOLICITING FOR DONATIONS TO PURCHASE THESE. ONE OF OUR GUYS WENT OUT…WE ACTUALLY PURCHASED 2 CARDIAC MONITORS, WITH THE HELP OF DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS IN THE COMMUNITY, THAT DONATED FUNDS…THE KINSMEN WAS QUITE PREVALENT…IN HELPING US PURCHASE THE FIRST…[AND] A COUPLE OF ADDITIONAL MONITORS…” “I USED [THE MONITOR] FOR A LOT OF YEARS, AND I THOUGHT THEY WERE GREAT MONITORS. THERE IS AN EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT, BECAUSE I WAS INVOLVED IN THE NEXT TWO PURCHASES. I WAS ON THE FRONT LINES; I WROTE UP THE RFQ, FOR THE PURCHASE OF THE NEXT SERIES OF ‘M’S; THE NEXT SERIES OF ‘E’S; AND THE ‘X’ SERIES…SO I’VE BEEN INVOLVED. I’VE GOT SOME PERSONAL ATTACHMENT, BECAUSE I USED IT AS A STREET PARAMEDIC, AND THEN I GOT ON IN FRONT OF IT IN THE BUSINESS END…I WATCHED HOW THAT PROCUREMENT PROCESS WENT DOWN, WORKING IN COOPERATION WITH OUR PROCUREMENT THROUGH THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE. WHEN THESE ARRIVED, IT WAS A BIG DAY. IT WAS LIKE CHRISTMAS, WHEN THE NEW CARDIAC MONITORS ARRIVE. I WOULD SPEND 6 WEEKS OR SO JUST GETTING ALL OF THESE ATTACHMENTS [THAT] ARE NOT ON THEM WHEN THEY COME - YOU’RE SCREWING ALL THESE PIECES TOGETHER; PUTTING OUT ALL THE INFORMATION TO THE STAFF; WRITING UP SOG’S AND POLICIES RELATING TO CARDIAC MONITORS.” FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING THE FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION, LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES, AND MANUALS ON THE MONITOR, PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE P20170016000-GA.

THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE RECREATION AND CULTURE DEPARTMENT DONATED OBJECTS FROM THE YATES THEATRE IN LETHBRIDGE UPON RENOVATIONS TO THE YATES THEATRE IN SEPTEMBER 2017. THE OBJECTS DONATED WERE USED IN THE YATES AFTER ITS CONSTRUCTION IN THE 1960S. ON DECEMBER 18, 2017, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED ED AND LINDA BAYLY REGARDING THEIR INVOLVEMENT WITH AND MEMORIES OF THE YATES THEATRE. ED AND LINDA BAYLY IDENTIFIED THE OBJECTS DONATED FROM THE YATES AND RECALLED THEIR OWN EXPERIENCES WITH THE OBJECTS. ON THE SPOT LAMP, ED BAYLY ELABORATED, “THEY’RE PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD TO OPERATE AND WE TRIED TO ENCOURAGE, PARTICULARLY WHEN SCHOOLS CAME IN, TO HAVE THE STUDENTS OPERATE THEM, IF THEY WERE WILLING OR ABLE OR WANTED TO. THEY COULDN’T DO MUCH HARM TO THAT. THE FOLLOW SPOT…IT’S LIKE A BIG FLASHLIGHT, WHEN YOU FOCUS ON WHATEVER YOU WANT TO POINT UP. YOU SEE IT ON TV WHEN THE ICE SKATERS, OR FIGURE SKATERS ARE DOING THEIR THING, FOLLOW THEM AROUND WITH THAT.” “[THE SPOT LAMP] COULD HAVE BEEN A BIT MORE POWERFUL, BUT WE COULDN’T AFFORD TO GET MUCH MORE THAN WHAT WE DID GET AT THE TIME. WE COULDN’T JUSTIFY IT…I DON’T THINK WE WERE AWARE OF WHAT WAS NEEDED UNTIL WE GOT INTO OPERATION. THEN IT BECAME EVIDENT THAT WE NEEDED ALL SORTS OF DIFFERENT LIGHTS.” “WE HAD TWO OF [THE SPOT LAMPS] THAT WE BOUGHT LATER ON AND [WERE] PRETTY GOOD. WE HAVE SINCE REPLACED THEM WITH MORE POWERFUL ONES, BUT THEY WERE QUITE ADEQUATE FOR OUR NEEDS AT THAT TIME. THEY FILLED A GAP THAT WE HAD THERE, FOR A FOLLOW SPOT WHICH ENABLED US TO DO MORE.” LINDA BAYLY ADDED, “I REMEMBER HAVING TO USE THAT [LAMP] ONE TIME. THERE WAS A GENTLEMAN IN TOWN BY THE NAME OF BOB (REID) AND HE WORKED IN…AN ELECTRICAL SHOP AND IF ED WAS ON HOLIDAYS, THEN BOB WOULD COME IN AND USE THE FOLLOW SPOT AND DID THE LIGHTING FOR [THE] SHOW. BUT [ONE DAY] BOB COULDN’T COME OVER AND SO THEY ASKED ME TO DO THE LIGHTING. I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT LIGHTING, BUT ED SAT ME DOWN AND SAID, 'NOW, HERE’S YOUR PLOT. DO THIS. DO THAT. AND AT THIS TIME DO WHATEVER.' THERE WERE TWO OCCASIONS. ONE WAS A PIANO RECITAL. [A] LOCAL TEACHER WANTED TO HAVE ALL HER STUDENTS PERFORM ON A STAGE ON A GRAND PIANO--AND WOULD I LIGHT THIS SHOW FOR HER? IT WAS INTERESTING BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO CHANGE THE LIGHTS FOR DIFFERENT MOODS. I COULD HAVE A BLUE LIGHT ON AND THEN CHANGE IT TO A RED LIGHT ON. SHE ASKED ME FOR A HARD ROLLING YELLOW. I HAVE NO IDEA TO THIS DAY WHAT SHE REALLY WANTED. I THINK I GAVE HER A BLUE LIGHT AND SHE WENT AWAY JUST AS HAPPY AS COULD BE. ANOTHER TIME THEY HAD A BRIDAL SHOW IN THERE AND WHOEVER WAS STAGE MANAGING THE BRIDAL SHOW SAID, 'NOW, AT THIS POINT WE WANT YOU TO SHINE A SPOT ON THAT ENTRYWAY, AND IT’S GOING TO BE THE BRIDE IN HER BEAUTIFUL FINERY. JUST HAVE HER LIT UP AND IT’S GOING TO BE WONDERFUL.' I FOLLOWED HER DIRECTIONS, HAD THE LIGHT OVER THERE AND THE OTHER GIRL THAT WAS THE MODEL FOR THE SHOW CAME OVER AND STOOD IN THE DARK, SO I THEN HAD TO, VERY UNPROFESSIONALLY, SWING THE LIGHT OVER AND CATCH HER. ED WOULD NEVER HAVE DONE THAT. HE WOULD HAVE TURNED THE LIGHT OFF, MOVED THE THING, TURNED IT BACK ON AND BROUGHT IT UP PROPERLY, BUT I WAS REALLY HAPPY THAT I WAS NOT DOING LIGHTS.” MACLEAN ADDITIONALLY INTERVIEWED JEFF CARLSON ON NOVEMBER 15, 2017. CARLSON WORKED FULL-TIME IN THE YATES THEATRE PRODUCING, WRITING, AND DIRECTING WITH NEW WEST THEATRE, LETHBRIDGE. CARLSON ELABORATED ON THE SPOT LAMP, “ROSCOE [YATES] GAVE THE MONEY AND THEN CITY COUNCIL OF THE DAY, BRAVELY KEPT PUTTING IT OUT TO PLEBISCITE, 'SHOULD WE BUILD THIS THEATRE?' BY THE TIME THEY FINALLY GOT THE OKAY, THE MONEY HAD DEPRECIATED IN VALUE SO MUCH THAT THEY DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH TO DO WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SMART FOR THE STAFF TO BE SURREPTITIOUSLY BUYING EQUIPMENT AT THE CHEAPER PRICES. I THOUGHT IT MAY HAVE BEEN…WES STEFAN, ONE OF THE MAINSTAYS OF THEATRE IN THE SEVENTIES AND EIGHTIES, UP UNTIL THE EARLY NINETIES BEFORE HE PASSED, [WHO] BOUGHT A BUNCH OF THESE, MAYBE FROM THE YATES AND HAD THEM IN HIS PERSONAL COLLECTION [BECAUSE]…I BORROWED THEM FROM WES TO USE FOR THEATRE PRODUCTIONS AND ON WES’ PASSING, THIS MAY HAVE GONE BACK TO THE YATES. I KNOW HE HAD A LOT OF THESE.” “THERE [WERE] ALSO SOME GUN-METAL GREY ONES…THOSE MAY HAVE BEEN WES’S THEN…WES USED THEM FOR COMEDY SHOWS. [I REMEMBER] DOING THE BOWMAN ARTS, PERFORMING ARTS SUMMER SCHOOL WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN ‘81 OR ‘82 AND THAT WAS WITH JOAN WATERFIELD. WE GOT TO SPEND A DAY OVER IN THE YATES, AND WE GOT TO GO THROUGH EVERYTHING AND PLAY WITH EVERYTHING INCLUDING [THE SPOT LAMPS] IN THE BOOTH. BUT THE FIRST TIME I RECALL EVER ACTUALLY BEEN HIT WITH ONE…IT WAS LETHBRIDGE MUSICAL THEATRE PRODUCTION OF 'OKLAHOMA' AND I OPENED THE SHOW AS THE LEAD TO CURLY AND WE DID IT IN THE AUDIENCE. I STARTED IN THE AUDIENCE AND THE SHOW OPENED WITH THE BAND DOING THE BIG THING AND THEN BOOM! THE SPOTLIGHT WOULD PIN ME AGAINST A WALL AND IT WAS, 'OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MORNING, OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY.' THAT ONE FACE PROBABLY SHONE ON ME MANY TIMES. I’VE RUN IT MANY TIMES AND LIFTED IT UP AND DOWN STAIRS MANY TIMES AND IT WEIGHS LIKE A BILLION POUNDS.” “RIGHT NOW WITH TECHNOLOGY YOU’VE GOT ONES THAT ARE MUCH EASIER TO OPERATE ‘CAUSE THIS IS ALL LEVERS, SO THE FOCUS AND THE BRIGHTNESS IS ALL DONE THROUGH LEVERS, PLUS, FLIPPING THE SWITCHES WILL GIVE YOU DIFFERENT GEL COLOURS THAT YOU CAN THROW IN OR OUT THERE. YOU CAN EVEN PROBABLY FIT A GOBO INTO IT WHICH WOULD THROW A DESIGN ON THE STAGE. ANY THEATRE COMPANY THAT’S AROUND WOULD PROBABLY LOVE TO HAVE THAT IN THEIR ARSENAL BECAUSE IT DOES STILL WORK. IT’S AN AWESOME UNIT, IT STILL DOES THE TRICK, IT WAS USED UP UNTIL PROBABLY A MONTH AGO.” “AT SOME POINTS IT EVEN HAD TO HAVE TWO PEOPLE RUNNING IT. ONE OF US WOULD BE MOVING IT, OPERATING IT AROUND THE STAGE AND THE OTHER WOULD BE CHANGING THE FOCUS AND THE BRIGHTNESS, OR FLIPPING IN A DIFFERENT GEL COLOUR. IT WAS A TWO-HANDED OPERATION.” ED AND LINDA BAYLY RECALLED THEIR YEARS SPENT WORKING WITH THE YATES THEATRE IN LETHBRIDGE, WITH ED BAYLY NOTING, “I WAS MANAGER AT THE YATES FOR 35 YEARS. I WAS INVOLVED WITH THE LOCAL DRAMA GROUPS FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS BEFORE THAT SO THAT WAS PARTIALLY THE REASON THAT I WAS CHOSEN FOR THE JOB. I HAD THE CONTACTS." “WHAT I REMEMBER MOST OF ALL WAS THE FACT THAT THE CITY PUT THE FUNDING FOR THE YATES UP TO THE PUBLIC IN A PUBLIC PLEBISCITE, AND IT WAS TURNED DOWN TWICE BEFORE THEY WENT AHEAD WITH THE MONEY THAT THEY HAD AND BUILT THE PLACE. PEOPLE WERE SAYING, 'WELL, WHAT DO YOU WANT THAT FOR, NO ONE’S EVER GOING TO USE IT.' THEN WE HAD THE OPENING AND FRED WEATHERUP, WHO WAS THE OWNER OF ENERSON MOTORS, BROUGHT IN SOME GO-GO DANCERS AND THEY HAD CARS PARKED OUT IN FRONT OF THE YATES, AND THAT SORT OF BROUGHT IN OTHER PEOPLE THAT WEREN’T REALLY INTERESTED IN THE ARTS AND THEY GOT A CHANCE TO SEE THE PLACE.” “THE REST OF THE PROVINCE GOT THE JUBILEE AUDITORIUMS WHICH WE DIDN’T. THOSE ARE WAY BIGGER OF COURSE AND A LOT MORE EXPENSIVE. WE WERE VERY FORTUNATE IN THIS MATTER–WE HAD A BEQUEST FROM THE YATES FAMILY THAT PRETTY WELL PAID FOR CONSTRUCTION OF THE BUILDING. AFTER A VERY FEW YEARS, YOU [STARTED TO] WONDER HOW YOU GOT ALONG WITHOUT IT BECAUSE IT WAS IN CONSTANT USE, AND STILL IS. IT WAS VERY WELL BUILT AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO SERVE THE COMMUNITY FOR ANY NUMBER OF YEARS BECAUSE WE’RE IN THE PROCESS OF RENOVATING IT, ADDING ON TO IT.” “I WAS HIRED ON BEFORE THE BUILDING WAS FINISHED SO I WAS THERE DURING THE CONSTRUCTION OF IT. I HAD SOME INPUT. IT WAS EXCITING. [THE] JOB WAS DIFFERENT ALL THE TIME. THEY HAD THESE GROUPS COME IN, AND…IT WAS AN EVERYDAY EVENT FOR ME. THEY ALL USED TO SAY, 'HOW COME YOU STAY SO CALM?' AND I WOULD SAY 'WELL, BECAUSE I DO IT EVERY DAY, AND YOU ONLY DO IT ONCE A YEAR.'” LINDA BAYLY SPOKE ABOUT HER OWN EXPERIENCES WITH THE YATES THEATRE, NOTING, “I WAS THE SECRETARY IN THE FRONT OFFICE AND WORKED WITH MAKING BOOKINGS FOR THE BUILDING AND GENERAL SECRETARIAL WORK AT THAT TIME. ED WAS THE TECHNICIAN FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS BEFORE HE BECAME HE MANAGER. HE HAD TO MAKE SURE ALL THESE RULES BACKSTAGE WERE LOOKED AFTER AND ATTENDED TO AND COMPLETED.” JEFF CARLSON ELABORATED ON HIS TIME WITH THE YATES THEATRE, STATING, “I SPENT MY ENTIRE PRETTY MUCH LIFE…IN THE YATES, IN THE GENEVIEVE YATES MEMORIAL THEATRE. I STARTED GOING TO THE YATES PROBABLY IN THE ‘70S WITH THE KIWANIS MUSIC FESTIVAL AND SCHOOL BAND AND CHOIR EVENTS…BACK IN LAKEVIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. AFTER THAT I STARTED ACTING IN THEATRE AND EVENTUALLY PRODUCING AND DIRECTING THEATRE UP UNTIL LESS THAN A YEAR AGO.” “[AT THE TIME] I FIGURED 'NOW THIS IS FUN, I LIKE THIS, I THINK I’M OKAY AT IT' SO I GAVE MYSELF SOME DEADLINES. I SAID, 'I’LL PURSUE THIS UNTIL I’M THIRTY AND IF I HAVEN’T MADE A CAREER IN IT BY THEN, THEN I WILL DO MY FALLBACK EDUCATION OR POLITICAL SCIENCE OR RUSSIAN HISTORY.' I HAD BITTEN OFF A BIT OF IT AT THAT POINT. BUT, BY THE AGE OF THIRTY, I WAS WORKING FULLTIME IN THEATRE, WRITING, DIRECTING, PRODUCING PRODUCTIONS FOR NEW WEST THEATRE AT THE YATES.” “[I WAS] PROFESSIONALLY EMPLOYED AT THE YATES BY [THE] LATE ‘80S, EARLY ‘90S. THERE WAS A MIX THERE BECAUSE WE WERE DOING FULL-TIME THEATRE PRODUCTIONS BY THE LATE ‘80S BUT THEN I TOOK TIME OFF TO TAKE A TOURING COMPANY THROUGH ALBERTA AND B.C., FOR NEW WEST THEATRE. [I] ENDED UP LIKING IT SO MUCH THAT I STAYED IN VANCOUVER FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS. [I] CAME BACK FOR A TWO-WEEK VISIT ON MY WAY TO TORONTO TO GO INTO FILM AND TV. AS I WAS HERE FOR TWO WEEKS, THE ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR QUIT AND THEY SAID, 'PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE – ', AND SO I SAID, 'I’LL DO IT FOR A YEAR.' THAT IS NOW TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO. IT WAS JUST CIRCUMSTANCES.” “WE [HAD] REPLACED THE SEATS IN THE YATES AND REPAINTED THE WHOLE THING. IT WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MISTAKES THAT WAS MADE, IN MY OPINION, WAS THAT BLUE COLOUR WE PUT ON THE WALLS. THEY CHANGED [THE PAINT COLOUR] TO THIS LIGHT BLUE THAT CAUSED THE LIGHTING DESIGNS TO BE SUCH A CHALLENGE.” “WE DID EVERYTHING. WE RAN THE LIGHTS, HUNG THE LIGHTS, FOCUSED THE LIGHTS. THEY MADE ME SEW COSTUMES. I REMEMBER MAKING A POODLE SKIRT FOR A SHOW IN 1986. I’VE LEARNED HOW TO MAKE A POODLE SKIRT. IT WAS TERRIBLE, BUT I LEARNED HOW TO MAKE IT. IN MY DEGREE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE, YOU HAVE TO GET SO MANY, WHAT THEY CALL ‘BACKSTAGE CREDITS’, IN RUNNING BACKSTAGE SHOWS, HANGING THE LIGHTS, DOING WARDROBE. THEY WAIVED THAT REQUIREMENT FOR ME BECAUSE, GROWING UP IN NEW WEST AND DOING EVERYTHING IN NEW WEST, THEY KNEW WE DID EVERYTHING. WE BUILT THE SETS, PAINTED THE SETS, HUNG THE LIGHTS, DID EVERYTHING. I WAS VERY FORTUNATE.” FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING THE FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTIONS, PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE P20170029001-GA.

History / Biographical
The idea of a resort hotel in Waterton was conceived by Louis Warren Hill Sr., then chairman of the Great Northern Railway, and finally realized in 1926 after the end of Prohibition in Alberta. This was part of the plan to lure American tourists to Glacier and then north across the U.S.-Canada border to Alberta. The hotel was opened on July 25, 1927 and was promoted as epitome of luxury in the wilderness with steam-heated rooms, hot and cold running water, electricity, a full service dining room, an elevator, laundry, beauty parlor and barber shop, all overseen by professional and uniformed staff and a tavern to serve beer to thirsty Americans. The bustling community of Waterton Park got a shock when the Great Northern didn’t open the Prince of Wales Hotel in 1933, with the railway citing the downturn in economic conditions caused by the Great Depression. The railway said it would not reopen the hotel until a more direct route was built between Waterton and Glacier, versus all bus traffic having to go via Cardston. Construction of Chief Mountain International Highway was undertaken as a work relief project and completed in 1936, when the railway kept its promise and reopened the hotel. The new route between the parks was shorter and more scenic. The hotel would again be closed, from 1942 to 1945, due to the Second World War. In December 1960, the Prince of Wales Hotel was sold by the Great Northern Railway to Glacier Park, Inc., headed by Don Hummel of Tucson, Arizona. GPI also acquired all the other railway hotel assets in Glacier. The Great Northern had long ago lost interest in the money-losing hotel chain as train passenger ridership declined in the wake of rising auto travel and tour bus trips. To make the operations profitable, Hummel severely reduced staff, became very deliberate in building maintenance, and changed services. Hummel was barely into his fourth summer of operations in 1964 when heavy rain and rapid snowmelt through Waterton and Glacier caused some of the most severe flooding in memory. The road into Waterton was under water, as was much of the commercial district of town. Waterton residents who hadn’t fled earlier were sheltered at the Prince of Wales Hotel, which had its own water and electrical supply, as well as full heating capability. The scene would be repeated in 1975 when the townsite flooded, again. Major changes would come to the Prince of Wales Hotel in 1981 when Hummel’s Glacier Park, Inc. was sold to Greyhound Food Management. GPI would be reconstituted as a new entity and after a series of shuffles, is today a division of Phoenix-based Viad Corporation. After years of delayed maintenance, GPI began a series of upgrades to the hotel. In 1996, GPI president Dale Scott, working with Calgary architect Ron Goodfellow, attempted to persuade Parks Canada to permit a major expansion of the Prince of Wales Hotel. A series of drafts were created, some looking very much like plans the Great Northern Railway had considered and then shelved in 1928. Scott presented his proposals at public and private hearings. They were rejected, in part on the basis that the view of the hotel and Upper Waterton Lake presented such an iconic image that it should not be tampered with.

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.

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.
