History / Biographical
In 1996, a group of riding enthusiasts, amateur historians, and community minded volunteers formed the Riders of the Plains Commemorative Troop. The ROTP’s original purpose was to recreate the riding traditions of the North West Mounted Police, with trail rides and commemorative wagon treks, and participation in public events with period uniforms, drills, firearms, and horses and tack. The six original members of the Troop formed a non-profit society in 1996 with two purposes:
To preserve and protect the history of the North West Mounted Police
To advance the education of the public as it relates to the history of the NWMP. Members participated as a commemorative troop in various events across Western Canada and Montana, including:
NWMP Boundary Commission Wagon Trek, 1997 and 1998
RCMP 125 March West, 1999
Due North wagon trek of the Whoop-Up Trail, 2000-2001
Fort Whoop-Up annual Wild West Weekend, one of the largest re-enactments events in Western Canada. The troop participated in several films, including:
Parks Canada production of the “Battle of Batoche”
CBC production of “Canada, a People’s History”
History Channel’s “The Great March West”
A Scattering of Seeds’ “Nevitt”. In addition, the troop travelled to Batoche, Saskatchewan, Battleford, Saskatchewan, Fort Steele, British Columbia, Fort Walsh, Saskatchewan, Rawleigh, Alberta, and Fort Benton, Montana. They were trained in firearms drill, horsemanship and infantry drill. As early as 1997, the ROTP received a lease on the original site of the Macleod NWMP Barracks, which was home to the North West Mounted Police, the Royal North West Mounted Police and the present day Royal Canadian Mounted Police during the period 1884 to 1922. The ROTP immediately began to plan for restoration and preservation of the site, including recreating the historic flagpole, identifying building sites, gathering of artifacts, conducting research, and building a dedicated membership and an array of alliances. ROTP efforts resulted in the declaration and protection of the site as a Provincial Historic Resource in 2001. Subsequently, the ROTP proposal for funding under the Centennial Legacy Program was approved, providing $1.6 million dollars for reconstruction and restoration of site structures to the late 1890’s period. In addition, the ROTP raised $250,000 in various forms to assist the project. Concurrent with the design and construction of the three reconstructed buildings and the development of the site itself, the ROTP worked hard to accumulate historical and interpretive materials relating to the Barracks period. Replica uniforms and saddles were commissioned. The ROTP celebrated the Official Opening of the Barracks in August of 2005. Unfortunately, relationships with the Fort Macleod Historic Area Society and the Town of Fort Macleod began to sour soon afterwards, culminating in an unfortunate lawsuit in July of 2007 against the ROTP, Fort Whoop Up and two individuals. This, in turn, resulted in a forensic audit, completed in July, 2008 by the Government of Alberta, which found no evidence of fraud, personal gain, or illegal use on the part of the ROTP. The audit also indicated that the major inventory items (uniforms, saddles, firearms and wagons) were properly accounted for.

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
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
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)

Order of the Royal Purple, Lethbridge Lodge #32
Physical Description
1.5 textual records, over 1,000 photographic prints, 7 posters
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
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
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

Hans Enoch Wight

History / Biographical
Hans Enoch Nielson Wight was born July 29, 1889, in Hyrum, Utah, USA. His father was Joseph Moroni Wight, and his mother’s maiden name was Cynthia Elnora Nielson. Joseph was born in 1844 in Hume, New York, and as a seven-year-old travelled west in the year 1851 with his LDS (Mormon) pioneer family. In line with LDS teachings of the time, Joseph became a polygamist and had two wives. Cynthia was his second wife. She was born in Weber County, Utah, in 1860. Hans was the sixth child born to Joseph and Cynthia, but only the second to live past infancy. After his birth, his parents were more successful and brought eight more children into the world, all but one of whom lived to adulthood. In the late 1880s, the LDS Church was sending members north to colonize Southern Alberta, and on June 8, 1891, when Hans was not yet two years old, his parents took their two living children and moved to the brand new community of Cardston, Alberta, snuggled on the edge of the vast, untamed, Canadian prairie. Hans learned to fish and hunt, and even before his teenage years he was an expert marksman. During the day in his father’s blacksmith shop, he learned to be a blacksmith, a wheelwright, and a carpenter, and in the evening he studied books. While finishing high school, he learned to play several instruments. He was a member of the Cardston Military Band. He became a certified machinist, a master electrician, and a licensed plumber. Because he drove a tractor, aborigine friends on the Blood reservation next to Cardston called him Iron Horse. Some remained life-long friends. On August 1, 1908, when nineteen years old, Hans went to Utah to attend Brigham Young College in Logan. He also studied through correspondence courses at the Armour Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois, the University of Missouri, and the Alberta Institute of Technology and Art, obtaining degrees in mechanical and electrical engineering. For the first six years of his professional career, he worked for the US Reclamation Service on the St. Mary’s River project in Montana, but he still spent his weekends in Cardston, which was only twenty miles away. On one of these weekends, he met a young lady named Alice McClung from northern Ireland who was a recent convert to the LDS Church. On January 11, 1911, Alice became Mrs. Hans E. Wight. He was not quite 22 years old and she was 20. An aside: Five years later, Hans’s younger brother Eugene married Alice’s younger sister Jenny, and their two families generated double cousins who grew up very close. At that time the LDS Church was constructing a temple in Cardston; it was to be used to perform certain sacred ceremonies, and Hans was offered a job as construction engineer, thus beginning his professional life in Canada. When the main part of the construction was finished, he accepted a position in Drumheller, Alberta, where, as a mine surveyor and master mechanic, he was instrumental in the development of its huge coal resources. He remained in Drumheller ten years. In addition to his mining duties he also taught night classes in mechanical, electrical, and steam engineering. When his family finally left Drumheller, he had three children: Elizabeth (Bessie) who was 14, Marjorie (Marge) who was 7, and Eileen who was 5. To be nearer to the LDS community, he moved his family to Taber, Alberta, in 1926. He had obtained the position of Chief Engineer and Master Mechanic for the Leland Coal Company based in Chicago. He was responsible for all mine maintenance both above and below ground. In addition to its large land holdings and mining operations, Leland Coal supplied the district with electricity. Their electric system was later purchased by the Calgary Power Company, and Hans became involved in extending power lines throughout Southern Alberta as well as in building power and light systems for its towns. Soon he relocated to Lethbridge, Alberta. However, his Calgary Power Company job required that he be away from home too much, so he resigned and accepted a position at the newly constructed Lethbridge Government Grain and Storage Elevator. In 1935, Hans campaigned for the new Social Credit Party and was elected Member of the Alberta legislative assembly (MLA) for Lethbridge by a landslide. In 1937, he resigned under pressure. Someone was leaking sensitive political information to the Lethbridge Herald, and Social Credit leadership suspected him (probably correctly). He moved to Calgary and became Chief Engineer of the Hudson’s Bay Company’s Calgary department store where he remained until World War II. In 1941 Hans left the Hudson’s Bay Company and enlisted at the rank of Pilot Officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). He had hoped to work on the Alaskan Highway as an engineer, but was instead deployed to air bases across the Prairie Provinces and Newfoundland where he was charged with maintaining and constructing airbase facilities. At the same time, he was often assigned to organize recreation and entertainment for the airmen. He was released from active duty with the rank of Flight Lieutenant in February, 1945, and moved to Bremerton, Washington, where he was hired as an electrical engineer repairing American ships, mostly destroyers, damaged in Pacific Ocean warfare. He performed this work until the Japanese surrender. Then he moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. Hans was 55 years old when he returned to the USA, and he remained there the remainder of his life working as surveyor, city engineer, construction engineer, and city manager in cities throughout northern Utah. He also lived in Los Angeles where he was employed in the development of the San Clemente Island Missile Base for the US military. He died in Salt lake City, Utah on October 12, 1965, at 76 years of age, leaving behind his wife Alice and their three daughters.
