History / Biographical
Amateur radio, also known as ham radio, is the use of radio frequency spectrum for non-commercial exchange of messages. The activity was subject to international regulations and standards and required a license. A ham radio operator was required to obtain a call sign to legally identify oneself on air. Individuals sent personalized QSL cards to one another after they had made radio contact. A QSL card is a written confirmation of either a two-way radio communication between two amateur radio stations or a one-way reception of a signal from an AM radio, FM radio, television or shortwave broadcasting station. QSL cards (1950- 1962) were collected by Edward “Ed” Redekopp as a ham radio operator. Redekopp was interested in electronics and radio servicing and he was fascinated by the ability to contact other amateur radio operators around the world, including operators who didn’t speak English. At first, he communicated by key code (Morse code) and later by microphone. When asked about his hobby and its abrupt end in 1963, he said, “I had a family to look after, a job during the day, and it was too much – I spent too much time on the air, on the radio. I’d be up sometimes in the night, very rarely, but up to four in the morning sometimes, talking to Australians and New Zealanders. Well, as a working man, I had a family to look after, they needed attention.” QSL cards were donated in drawers. Cards in Drawer 1 are in files 2017.1045/008-014. Cards in Drawer 2 are in files 2017.1045/003-007. For more information about Edward “Ed” Redekopp and his hobby please refer to interview – P20180010001-006

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.
