History
THE KONKINS WERE A RUSSIAN-SPEAKING FAMILY FROM THE TOWN OF SHOULDICE, ALBERTA, NEAR CALGARY. THEY AND MANY OTHER RUSSIAN FAMILIES COMPOSED THAT TOWN’S DOUKHOBOR COLONY. IT WAS THERE WILLIAM KONKIN MARRIED ELIZABETH WISHLOW. IN 1928 THEIR DAUGHTER, ELSIE WAS BORN. THE FAMILY LATER MOVED TO A FARM IN VAUXHALL, ALBERTA. THE PRECEDING AND FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXTRACTED FROM A TWO-PART INTERVIEW WITH DONOR ELSIE MORRIS, WHICH WAS CONDUCTED BY COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN ON FEBRUARY 17, 2016. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION COMES FROM FAMILY HISTORIES AND TEXTS PROVIDED BY THE DONOR. A FULL HISTORY OF THE KONKIN FAMILY CAN BE FOUND WITH THE RECORD P20160003001. THIS DOLL BELONGED TO MORRIS AS A CHILD. SHE EXPLAINS, “THIS CAME FROM A GREAT AUNT WHO CAME TO VISIT US AND SHE ALWAYS BROUGHT GIFTS AND THIS ONE WAS MINE AND I LOVED THIS DOLL… I REMEMBER PLAYING WITH IT, IT WAS SOFT AND CUDDLY WHEN I HAD IT… MY DAUGHTER WENT THROUGH IT AND MY GRANDDAUGHTER AND THEN I PUT A STOP TO IT BEFORE THEY ATE IT UP OR DID SOMETHING… THEY LOVED IT AND THEY, YOU KNOW LITTLE KIDS, THEY’RE CARELESS SO I’LL KEEP IT...” IN A PHONE CALL WITH COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK ON OCTOBER 24, 2017, MORRIS SAID SHE RECIEVED THE DOLL FROM HER GREAT AUNT WHO HAD BROUGHT IT FROM VISITING BRITISH COLUMBIA. MORRIS PLAYED WITH THE DOLL AS A CHILD, AS DID MORRIS' CHILDREN. THE DOLL WAS LOVED BY MULTIPLE GENERATIONS IN MORRIS' FAMILY AS HER GRANDCHILDREN AND GREAT GRANDCHILDREN WOULD ALSO PLAY WITH THE DOLL WHEN THEY CAME TO VISIT.

ON DECEMBER 21, 2018, GALT MUSEUM CURATOR AIMEE BENOIT INTERVIEWED KEVIN MACLEAN REAGARDING HIS DONATION OF PERSONAL OBJECTS. THE OBJECTS DONATED BY MACLEAN REFLECTED HIS LIFE AND IDENTITY THROUGH HIS TIME IN LETHBRIDGE. ON THE “RED DAWN” FILM POSTER, MACLEAN ELABORATED, “THE POSTER [WAS] UP [IN MY ROOM].” “[IN] THE 1980S, AS A KID, AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT WAS JUST ME ‘CAUSE I WAS A NEWS JUNKIE, THE COLD WAR WAS A BIG DEAL IN THE EARLY ‘80S. THERE WERE SHOWS ON TV THAT WERE SCARING THE CRAP OUT OF ME. THERE WAS ONE CALLED "THE DAY AFTER" AND THAT WAS IN ’83. THEN IN 1984 THIS MOVIE COMES OUT WHICH IS CALLED RED DAWN WHICH IS, AGAIN, ABOUT RUSSIAN COMMUNIST INVASIONS OF NORTH AMERICA. IT’S A SMALL TOWN THAT ALL THESE TROOPS DROP INTO. TO SAY THE LEAST, I WAS SEMI-OBSESSED WITH THE SUBJECT MATTER.” “IF YOU WATCHED "THE DAY AFTER"…ON ONE HAND, THAT KIND OF SUBJECT MATTER CAN FEEL FOREIGN AND ABSTRACT AND NOT RELEVANT. BUT, IF AT THE SAME TIME YOU’RE A KID, AND YOUR PARENTS ARE WATCHING THE NEWS EVERY NIGHT, AND YOU HAVE AN INTEREST IN WHAT’S GOING ON—A LOT OF KIDS DON’T CARE BUT FOR SOME REASON, I WAS VERY INTERESTED. THEN YOU THOUGHT, “NO, THIS IS A VERY REAL PROSPECT. THIS COULD ACTUALLY HAPPEN.” I WAS TERRIFIED ABOUT IT. BUT, AT THE SAME TIME, I WAS ALSO ATTRACTED TO IT, LIKE A FLAME. IT WAS…ROCKETS…I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT WAS BUT I WAS ACTIVELY INTERESTED IN [THEM]. THEN AT SOME POINT, THAT PIVOTED, WHICH IS WHEN I KNOW I WAS LOOKING AT THE SOLDIER OF FORTUNE MAGAZINES AND THEN I STARTED BUYING COMIC BOOKS…WORLD WAR TWO COMIC BOOKS.” “WE DIDN’T HAVE MUCH TV OUT IN PICTURE BUTTE. [OTHER PEOPLE] PROBABLY HAD LOTS OF CHANNELS IN LETHBRIDGE. ONE CHANNEL WE DID HAVE—I THINK WE ONLY HAD THREE—WAS CBC. I REMEMBER [MY PARENTS] WATCHING THE NATIONAL. I THINK [THERE] WAS [A SHOW] CALLED THE JOURNAL WITH BARBARA FRUM [THAT MY PARENTS] WOULD WATCH AT TEN O’CLOCK EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. I WOULD SNEAK OUT OF MY ROOM AND HIDE BEHIND THE COUCH, AND [THE COLD WAR IS] ON THE NEWS EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.” “IN TERMS OF [THE COLD WAR] MANIFESTING ITSELF LOCALLY…I THINK TRUDEAU’S IN POWER, AND THERE’S A WHOLE DEBATE ABOUT CANADA HAVING NUKES IN THIS COUNTRY. ULTIMATELY, IT DIDN’T HAPPEN. BUT, THE U.S. WAS TESTING CRUISE MISSILES IN ALBERTA, AND NOT FAR FROM MY FRIEND’S HOUSE OUT NEAR PICTURE BUTTE, WHEN THE TALK OF A CRUISE MISSILE BEING TESTED IN ALBERTA WAS IN THE NEWS, ACTIVELY, PEOPLE WERE UNHAPPY AND PROTESTING. A BUNCH OF TRACTOR TRAILERS PULLED UP ON THE TOP OF A HILL, TWO MILES AWAY FROM [MY FRIEND’S] HOUSE, WITH U.S. LICENSE PLATES. OTHERWISE, THEY WERE TOTALLY UNMARKED. THEY BUILT THIS RADAR INSTALLATION UP ON THE TOP OF THE HILL, WHERE IT REMAINED…FOR THREE DAYS OR [SO]…AND THEN IT ALL DISAPPEARED.” “I CAN’T SAY THAT I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT IT WAS RELATED TO CRUISE MISSILE TESTING.” “GENERALLY TO SAY…WITH THESE [OBJECTS] I CAN DRAW A BIT OF A LINE FROM MY HAVING POSSESSED THEM ALL THE WAY, IN SOME FORM…THEY WOULD HAVE HAD AN IMPACT ON [MY] IDENTITY AND WHO I THINK I AM TODAY. I DON’T VALUE THEM BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE UTILITY AND THEY DON’T HAVE PRACTICAL VALUE. I DON’T LOOK AT THEM ALL THE TIME, BUT I KNOW THAT THEY HAVE SOME IMPORTANCE LIFE-WISE.” “IN SCHOOL, THERE WAS A GAME THAT WE WERE PLAYING. THIS IS AT A TIME WHEN THERE’S ONE COMPUTER FOR THE ENTIRE SCHOOL. IT WAS AN APPLE…AND IT WAS A WW2-BASED GAME. MY INTEREST, INITIALLY, WAS IN CONTEMPORARY-TYPE STUFF. THEN WE’RE PLAYING THIS GAME WHICH I’M NOT REALLY–IT’S ABSTRACT TO ME. WE’RE JUST PLAYING THIS GAME AND THEN, BECAUSE I’M INTO THIS, I’M BUYING MAGAZINES CALLED SOLDIER OF FORTUNE, AND I CAN REMEMBER FLIPPING THROUGH THE PAGES OF [THE] PROXY WAR IN AFGHANISTAN. [THE RUSSIANS] HAD GONE INTO AFGHANISTAN, AND I SAW A WW2 PICTURE AND I CONNECTED IT TO THIS GAME AND I [THOUGHT], “OH, THIS IS A REAL THING.” THEN, ALL OF A SUDDEN, THIS CONTEMPORARY STUFF IS OF LESSER INTEREST AND THEN IT BECOMES MORE SECOND WORLD WAR INTEREST AFTER THAT.” “MAYBE I STILL AM [THAT PERSON] TODAY A BIT…IN DIFFERENT RESPECTS. [THE OBJECTS] TAKE UP SOME SPACE BUT I COULDN’T LET THEM GO BECAUSE THEY’RE SYMBOLS, IN A WAY. THEY’RE ONLY THAT BECAUSE OF WHAT IS IN MY HEAD, SO I THOUGHT AT SOME POINT IT WAS GOOD TO [DONATE THEM]…IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MAYBE EASIER TO LET SOME OF THIS STUFF GO.” FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, BRANDON SUN, MEDICINE HAT NEWS, AND THE FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION, PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE P20180029001-GA.

ON FEBRUARY 5, 2019, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED BARB CAVERS REGARDING HER DONATION OF ITEMS FROM HER HOME AND TEACHING CAREER. ON THE PUPPET, CAVERS RECALLED, “[I MADE THE PUPPET] PROBABLY ABOUT [1995] TO 2000…AT SENATOR BUCHANAN SCHOOL, AND I TAUGHT MUSIC TO GRADE TWO, THREE, AND FIVE, AND SIX, DEPENDING ON WHO WAS TEACHING THOSE GRADES, BUT I USED HIM PRIMARILY FOR GRADES TWO AND THREE…HE WAS JUST CALLED THE MAESTRO.” “ONCE I GOT INTO ADMINISTRATION IN THE SCHOOLS, RATHER THAN BEING A CLASSROOM TEACHER, I MOSTLY TAUGHT MUSIC AND ART, BECAUSE THOSE WERE SUBJECTS THAT HAD THE RIGHT NUMBER OF PERIODS. TEACHERS GOT THREE 30-MINUTE PERIODS A WEEK OF PREP TIME, SO I COULD GIVE A TEACHER THAT, WITH TEACHING MUSIC, WHICH I LOVED TO DO. IT WAS FUN. I’D BEEN TEACHING GRADE TWO AND THREE MUSIC FOR PROBABLY FOUR OR FIVE YEARS, AND, IN THE TEACHER GUIDE, THEY HAD DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE THIS…BEING A PERSON WHO LIKES TO MAKE THINGS, I THOUGHT, ‘WELL, THAT WOULD BE FUN.’ EARLIER, WHEN I WAS ACTING PRINCIPAL AT ALAN WATSON SCHOOL, [I] HAD BEEN TEACHING A GRADE SIX CLASS ART, AND WE HAD MADE SOFT SCULPTURES…AGAIN I SAID, ‘HOW HARD COULD IT BE?’ QUITE CHALLENGING ACTUALLY, BECAUSE LOTS OF THE KIDS HAD NEVER SEWED, BUT WE MADE THE WHOLE BODY PUPPET, AND THE KIDS BROUGHT THE CLOTHES AND DRESSED THEM. WE MADE THE FACES, TOO, OUT OF THE NYLON STOCKINGS, AND THE EYES, AND THEY ADDED HAIR, AND IT WAS REALLY FUN. WHEN I SAW THIS, I THOUGHT, ‘WELL, I CAN DO THAT, BECAUSE I’VE DONE THE SOFT SCULPTURE BEFORE.’ I HADN’T DONE THE KIND OF MUPPET HEAD BEFORE. HE’S KIND OF CRAZY LOOKING, BUT THE IDEA WAS THAT YOU COULD USE THIS GUY, BECAUSE HE HAS A BATON ATTACHED TO ONE HAND; THAT YOU COULD USE HIM TO GET KIDS TO BE ABLE TO BEAT OUT THE TIME; KIND OF ‘ONE-TWO-THREE’. A BIT MORE FUN TO WATCH A PUPPET THAN IT IS TO WATCH A TEACHER…[THE STUDENTS] WOULD BE ABLE TO HOLD HIM SOMETIMES, AND YOU CAN MANIPULATE HIS MOUTH BY GOING IN HIS BACK…I WANTED TO MAKE HIM, AND PARTLY BECAUSE I WANTED TO USE HIM, AND I DID USE HIM FOR ABOUT THE NEXT FIVE YEARS, IN THE CLASSROOM.” “[WE DIDN’T USE THE PUPPET] THAT MUCH. PROBABLY WITH EACH CLASS, MAYBE FIVE OR SIX TIMES, DURING THE YEAR, JUST USUALLY TO MAKE A POINT…THEN I’D MOVE ON, AND DO SOMETHING ELSE. PROBABLY THE KIDS WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SEE HIM MORE OFTEN, BUT I HAVE A SHORT ATTENTION SPAN SOMETIMES, SO I WANTED TO MOVE ON TO SOMETHING NEW.” CAVERS ELABORATED ON HER TIME TEACHING MUSIC, NOTING, “I THINK [TEACHING MUSIC IS] REALLY IMPORTANT. IT GETS A DIFFERENT PART OF YOUR BRAIN WORKING, THAN PENCIL, PAPER, SPEAKING, READING DOES. IT GIVES KIDS AN OPPORTUNITY TO MOVE, BECAUSE WE DID, PARTICULARLY WITH THE YOUNGER KIDS, WE DID LOTS OF MOVEMENT, AND ACTION SONGS…IT GAVE THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO STRETCH, AND GET SOME OF THE ‘WIGGLES’ OUT…I THINK THE MIND AND THE SPIRIT ARE IMPORTANT. THE SPIRIT IS IMPORTANT IN MUSIC JUST TO THE JOY OF SINGING; THE JOY OF SINGING TOGETHER; MAKING MUSIC WITH INSTRUMENTS; OF PERFORMING. I ALWAYS LIKED TO HAVE CERTAIN TIMES OF THE YEAR…I REALLY LIKED CHRISTMAS CONCERTS. IT WAS REALLY A LOT OF WORK, BUT I REALLY LIKED IT, BECAUSE THE KIDS HAD A SENSE OF PERFECTING SOMETHING. WE DID LOTS OF CLASSROOM MUSIC FOR FRIDAY ASSEMBLIES…THE KIDS WOULD JUST GET UP AND SING A CLASSROOM SONG, OR SAY A POEM…WE DID LITTLE OPERETTAS…THOSE GAVE KIDS A REAL PRIDE IN WHAT THEY WERE ACCOMPLISHING—THAT THEY WORKED REALLY, REALLY HARD, AND HAD THAT SENSE OF REALLY PERFORMING WELL, WHICH I THINK IS IMPORTANT, TOO. WHEN YOU’RE PART OF A GROUP THAT’S PERFORMING, YOU CAN SHARE IN THE SUCCESS OF THAT, EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT THE BEST. SO, THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT THE ANONYMITY; ABOUT BEING PART OF A CHORAL GROUP, OR AN INSTRUMENTAL GROUP, WHERE YOU GET TO SHARE THE BENEFIT OF ALL THE APPLAUSE, AND THANKS OF THE AUDIENCE…IF YOU’RE TEACHERS, EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT THE VERY BEST, THAT WAS IMPORTANT.” “I DIDN’T [GO TO THE KIWANIS FESTIVAL WITH MY STUDENTS]. I DID WHEN I WAS A CLASSROOM TEACHER, SOME SINGING, USUALLY FOR ‘SPEECH’, AGAIN BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO PERFORM. MAYBE FOR THE FIRST TEN YEARS OF MY TEACHING, AND THEN THERE WERE MORE OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN THE SCHOOL, THAT HADN’T BEEN THERE IN THE FIRST TEN YEARS. THEY DIDN’T SEE THE BENEFIT OF REGULAR ASSEMBLIES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.” “I STILL HAVE A BOX LABELLED MUSIC MAKING, WHICH HAS GOT A BUNCH OF LITTLE INSTRUMENTS, LIKE A RAIN STICK, AND THE THING THAT YOU BLOW THROUGH TO MAKE THE TRAIN SOUND, AND MARACAS…IT PARTICULARLY REMINDS ME OF THE MUSIC TEACHING AT SENATOR BUCHANAN, WHICH IS WHAT I DID MORE OF THAT THAN ANY OTHER KIND OF TEACHING, AND JUST THE FUN THAT WE HAD. FOR ME, WHEN YOU ARE THE PRINCIPAL OF A SCHOOL, YOU’RE REALLY ‘ON-CALL’ ALL THE TIME, BUT, WHEN I WAS TEACHING MUSIC, I WOULD SAY, ‘OK, NOBODY BOTHERS ME. THE ONLY TIME YOU INTERRUPT ME IS IF IT’S THE SUPERINTENDENT, OR MY HUSBAND, OR IF THERE IS, LIKE SOMEBODY’S REALLY SERIOUS EMERGENCY, BUT, ANY OTHER POINT, DON’T BOTHER ME’…THAT, TO ME, WAS JUST A TIME I COULD HAVE FUN, AND ENJOY BEING WITH THE CHILDREN…I GUESS LOOKING AT HIM MAKES ME THINK OF THAT, EVEN THOUGH HE’S KIND OF UGLY.” FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES AND THE FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION, PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE P20190005001-GA.
