History / Biographical
Edward Frederick (Ted) Hagell was born in Lethbridge on 20 June1895. He was the son of Edward G. and Ellen Hagell, who came to Lethbridge in 1893. Ellen Hagell was Mr. Hagell's second wife. His first wife, Kate died giving birth to their child. Kate's sister Ellen was sent from England to Canada as a 'replacement' wife to raise Kate. Ted Hagell had two sisters, Violet and Freda, and a brother Albert. Mr. Hagell and the two Mrs. Hagells were all born and raised in Maidstone, Kent, England. After some time in Saskatchewan, the Hagells moved to Lethbridge where Mr. Hagell worked for E.T. (Si) Saunders, owner of the Lethbridge News. In 1900 Mr. Hagell became a partner in the newspaper, and in 1905 sole owner upon the retirement of Mr. Saunders. Mr. Hagell sold the newspaper in 1910, and continued to work as a job printer until he and his family moved to British Columbia in 1924. Mr. and Mrs. Hagell both died in Vancouver, in April 1953 and December 1954 respectively. Ted Hagell exhibited a talent for drawing early in life. He developed a love of the prairie landscape looking out from the family's home near what is now the intersection of 7 Avenue and 11 Street South. The major artistic themes in his work were the prairie landscape, animals and the pioneer era of western Canada. Mr. Hagell worked primarily in pen and ink, but also in oils. He studied in New York and Los Angeles, and lived in Vancouver and on a farm near Toronto before returning to southern Alberta in 1952 to live in Pincher Creek. Mr. Hagell and his wife settled in Lethbridge in October 1963, just over a year before his death. During his lifetime Ted Hagell produced about 1,500 works of art, wrote poetry and short stories, and published one book. His work was shown in exhibitions in Canada, the United States and England. Ted Hagell married Cora Marie Pelletier on 27 October 1919. The couple had three sons, Barnett, Gordon and Ronald. Although a an recognized in the arts community for his talent, Ted Hagell achieved only limited financial success with his art. Ted Hagell died in Creston, B. C. on 28 December 1964, age 69. His wife Cora also died in Lethbridge, on 17 September 1981. Both are buried in Mountain View Cemetery.
