History / Biographical
The Pioneer Researchers Association (PRA) was formed in 1977. Members of the PRA included George Watson, Audrey Baines (now Audrey Swedish) and Sheila Petherbridge. The PRA operated from a room in the Sir Alexander Galt Museum - now the Sir Alexander Galt Museum and Archives - and solicited donations of historical materials which they then catalogued and preserved. The PRA also conducted an extensive oral history program, as volunteers interviewed over 100 people in Lethbridge and southern Alberta about their lives as early residents of the city and the region. Mrs. Audrey Swedish, the district's volunteer archivist, continued to organize and add to the files after the material was passed to Lethbridge School District No. 51.
