DONOR DOUG PATCHING CAME INTO POSSESSION OF ASTROGRAPH AT THE TIME OF HIS FATHER DEL PATCHING’S PASSING ON FEBRUARY 4, 2004. THE ASTROGRAPH WAS LOCATED IN HIS FATHER’S HOME, BUT DONOR DOUG PATCHING RECALLS THE OBJECT, “MOVING AROUND WITH US.” DOUG PATCHING’S EARLIEST RECOLLECTION OF THE ASTROGRAPH’S EXISTENCE WAS WHILE HIS FATHER WAS, “WORKING AT THE LETHBRIDGE AIRPORT, HELPING TO DISMANTLE THE CF-100S. HE WOULD GO OUT DURING THE WINTER AND BRING HOME BUCKETS OF BOLTS.” DEL PATCHING LIVED ON A FARM SOUTH-EAST OF TOWN ON THE NORTH-EAST QUARTER “720 WEST OF THE 4TH NEAR WILSON SIDING.” AT THE TIME OF DONATION, DOUG PATCHING RELATED THAT, “AS A KID, IT WAS KINDA NEAT TO SEE STARS PROJECTED AND EVER SINCE THAT TIME I BOUGHT STAR MAPS. I WAS INSPIRED BY THIS THING.” THE ASTROGRAPH GIVES LONGITUDE, LATITUDE, STAR NAMES AND LOCATION. DOUG PATCHING SAID, “I THINK IT WAS MEMORABILIA, I’VE GOT HIS LOG BOOK WHEN HE WAS IN THE RCAF.” DEL PATCHING SERVED IN 1941/42 TO 1945 IN HALIFAX AS A NAVIGATOR. THE ASTROGRAPH’S LAST KNOWN USE WAS IN THE 1970S/80S AND, “MAY HAVE MADE IT TO WILSON JR. HIGH AS A TEACHER. HE HAD THE FIRST HAND-HELD CALCULATOR OF ANYONE IN SCHOOL.” HE TAUGHT SCIENCE BETWEEN 1970 AND 1980. ACCORDING TO HIS OBITUARY IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, “DEL PATCHING WAS BORN IN ETZIKOM ALBERTA IN 1918. HE GRADUATED FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA WITH A B.SC (AGRICULTURE) IN 1939. FROM 1942 TO 1945 HE SERVED IN THE R.C.A.F. AS A NAVIGATOR WITH THE RANK OF FLIGHT SERGEANT, MAINLY FLYING NIGHTTIME IN HALIFAX BOMBING MISSIONS TO WESTERN EUROPE. FOLLOWING DISCHARGE, DEL PATCHING WORKED AT THE LETHBRIDGE AGRICULTURAL STATION IN 1945. IN 1946 HE MOVED TO THE FAMILY FARM NEAR WILSON SIDING WHERE HE FARMED FOR 26 YEARS. IN 1970, PATCHING COMPLETED A DEGREE IN EDUCATION AND LEFT FARMING TO TAKE UP A CAREER AS A TEACHER AT WILSON JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL IN LETHBRIDGE UNTIL 1980 WHEN HE RETIRED. DEL PATCHING PASSED AWAY ON FEBRUARY 5, 2004 “ FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE.
