AS PART OF THE SURVEY PROCESS, PUNDYK CONTACTED GLOVER’S DAUGHTER DIANE GLOVER. NO ITEM SPECIFIC INFORMATION COULD BE ADDED TO THE ARTIFACT FILES. FURTHER ARCHIVAL RESEARCH WAS CONDUCTED REGARDING THE DONOR’S FAMILY, INCLUDING HER FATHER WILLIAM PALFREY, WHOSE NAME IS MENTIONED IN RELATION TO THE ARTIFACTS IN THE INITIAL RECORDS. PALFREY’S OBITUARY WAS PUBLISHED IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ON JULY 3, 1973.

History
HAND BRACE BELONGED TO DONOR'S FATHER, REV. G.G. NAKAYAMA, WHO WOULD OFTEN BUILD OR REPAIR ITEMS NEEDED FOR THE HOME. DONOR RELATES WITH AMUSEMENT THAT HER FATHER WAS NOT VERY GOOD AT BUILDING THINGS AND MANY OF THE THINGS HE MADE WERE "SLAPPED TOGETHER HAPHAZARDLY". THE NAKAYAMA FAMILY WAS ORIGINALLY FROM VANCOUVER BUT MOVED TO COALDALE FOLLOWING THE SECOND WORLD WAR WHEN THEY WERE INTERNED AT SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA BY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT. THE DONOR'S FATHER, REV. CANON G.G. NAKAYAMA, WAS AN ANGLICAN MINISTER IN VANCOUVER, AND THEN ESTABLISHED THE CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION IN COALDALE IN 1945 WHERE HE SERVED UNTIL 1970. SEE RECORD P19970041001 FOR EXPANDED BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION AND PERMANENT FILE FOR FURTHER HISTORY. THE FOLLOWING MEMORIES WERE PROVIDED BY REVEREND TIM NAKAYAMA IN A LETTER TO THE GALT ON 16 AUGUST, 2007. HE WROTE: “OUR FAMILY MOVED INTO THE HOUSE AT 1664 W. 64TH AVE., IN THE MARPOLE DISTRICT OF SOUTH VANCOUVER IN THE MID-1930’S. (MY SISTER, JOY NOZOMI, WAS BORN ON JUNE 6, 1935. I BELIEVE HER CHILDHOOD MEMORIES BEGIN IN THIS HOUSE). AFTER WE MOVED INTO THIS HOUSE I BEGAN TO DISCOVER THAT MY FATHER LIKED TO DO SOME CARPENTRY. I REMEMBER HIM MAKING WALLS WITH CEDAR “V-JOINT” WOOD PIECES WHICH HE FITTED TOGETHER VERTICALLY, NAILING THEM IN PLACE IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE FINISHING NAILS WERE NOT VISIBLE. THE WALLS OF THE STAIRWELL WERE COVERED WITH THIS WOOD, AND THE WALLS DEFINED THE DIMENSIONS OF SOME ROOMS. I PERCEIVED THAT HE HAD SOME SKILLS WITH VARIOUS TOOLS, ESPECIALLY JAPANESE ONES, SUCH AS AN AUGER-LIKE DRILL WHICH HE TWIRLED BETWEEN HIS PALMS."
