*UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, INCLUDING THREE DONATED BY THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION OF LETHBRIDGE. THOUGH THE ASSOCIATION HAS DISBANDED, SHE WAS ABLE TO DETERMINE THAT IT IS LIKELY THAT THIS OBJECT AND 81 OTHERS DONATED BY THE ASSOCIATION IN 1973 WERE ORIGINALLY PART OF THE GALT MUSEUM'S 'UKRAINIAN ROOM' EXHIBIT. ACCORDING TO LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM 1969 AND 1976, AND PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE GALT ARCHIVES (199110764419, 1991107612370, 199110764421, AND 199110764422) THE UKRAINIAN ROOM WAS INSTALLED IN 1966, WHEN THE MUSEUM WAS MOVED FROM THE BOWMAN CENTRE TO THE GALT HOSPITAL BUILDING. THE ROOM WAS FURNISHED WITH OBJECTS DONATED BY THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION, AND THE GROUP HELD ANNUAL TEAS THERE. THOUGH THE CATALOGUE NUMBERS OF THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION DONATION REFLECT A 1973 DONATION DATE, THE INITIAL ACQUISITION YEAR LISTED IN HARDCOPY FILES IS 1966, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE OPENING DATE OF THE UKRAINIAN ROOM. IN ADDITION, ARCHIVAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE ROOM DEPICT OBJECTS THAT ARE NOW HELD IN COLLECTIONS (P19738277001-GA, P19738277002-GA, AND P19738277003-GA CAN BE CLEARLY IDENTIFIED, WITH OTHER OBJECTS IDENTIFIED SPECULATIVELY). IN 1984 THE MUSEUM DISMANTLED ALL ITS DISPLAYS IN PREPARATION FOR THE BUILDING'S RENOVATION AND EXPANSION, AND ACCORDING TO BRAD BROWN, GALT EXHIBIT DESIGNER, WHEN THE FACILITY REOPENED TO THE PUBLIC IN 1985 ALL THE EXHIBITS HAD BEEN REWORKED, AND THE UKRAINIAN ROOM NO LONGER EXISTED.

BLOUSE WORN WITH VELVET SKIRT FOR EVENING WEAR. A SILK SLIP OR UNDERGARMENT WORN UNDER BLOUSE. SEAMSTRESS MADE THIS IN KENTUCKY. REF: P19750139000-GA. *UPDATE* IN 2016 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT RUTHANN LABLANCE CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF CLOTHING, INCLUDING A BATHING SUIT, RIDING BREECHES, AND TWO EVENING GOWNS DONATED BY ALLENE LANIER. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION WAS COMPILED USING ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. ALLENE LANIER (NEE HANNA) PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 91 ON OCTOBER 24, 1981. SHE WAS BORN AND RAISED IN KENTUCKY, THE DAUGHTER OF MR. AND MRS. CHARLES MORTON HANNA. ALLENE WAS A GRADUATE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO. SHE TAUGHT FOR A FEW YEARS IN KENTUCKY BEFORE MOVING TO THE LETHBRIDGE AREA. IN MARCH 1917, ALLENE MARRIED THOMAS STRATTON LANIER, AND THE COUPLE FARMED IN THE WILSON SIDING AREA. THOMAS STRATTON “T.S.” LANIER WAS BORN IN KENTUCKY AND MOVED TO CANADA IN 1909. HE PASSED AWAY ON JANUARY 14, 1976 AT THE AGE OF 89. ALLENE WAS A MEMBER OF THE ARTHRITIS SOCIETY, THE YWCA BOARD, A CHARTER MEMBER OF THE QUOTA CLUB, AND OF THE WHILSO WHITE COMMUNITY CLUB. IN A LETTER TO THE EDITOR, DATED JUNE 4, 1979, ALLENE WROTE: “AS AN EARLY SETTLER IN THIS AREA, WHO HAD ALREADY BEEN INVOLVED IN YWCA WORK IN KENTUCKY, I WAS ONE OF THOSE WHO SAW THE NEED FOR MORE PERMANENT ASSISTANCE FOR YOUNG GIRLS MOVING TO THE CITY THAN THAT PROVIDED BY TRAVELLER’S AID. I WELL REMEMBER CANVASSING WITH MRS. LUCY BAWDEN TO RAISE $15,000 TOWARD THE PURCHASE OF THE FIRST YWCA FACILITY.” SHE CONTINUED, SAYING THAT WHILE HER HEALTH PREVENTED HER FROM CANVASSING AGAIN, “IT IS MY FOND HOPE THAT THE RESPONSE TO THE APPEAL FOR FUNDS FOR A NEW YWCA WILL BE AS SUCCESSFUL AS OUR FIRST EFFORTS.” SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR COPIES OF THE ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD.
*UPDATE* IN 2018, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF THE BOXED TEXTILE COLLECTION. ON 8 FEBRUARY 2018, PUNDYK INTERVIEWED IKE LANIER ABOUT ARTIFACTS DONATED BY VARIOUS MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY.

ITEMS WERE CONTAINED IN A TRUNK BELONGING TO THE DONOR'S MOTHER, WHO WAS BORN IN 1902 AND WAS RAISED ON A DOUKHOBOR COMMUNE UNTIL SHE AND FRED EVDOKIMOFF LEFT WHEN THEY WERE 18 YEARS OLD TO GET MARRIED. MANY OF THE ITEMS DATE BACK TO THE EARLY 1900'S, WHILE OTHERS ARE MODERN AND DATE TO THE 1980'S. DONOR'S PARENTS MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1952. MRS. EVDOKIMOFF DIED IN 1986 AT THE AGE OF 84 YEARS OLD. *UPDATE* NICOLE HEMBROFF, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT, MET WITH DONOR WALLY EVDOKIMOFF IN 2010 TO DISCUSS HIS DONATION OF THE TRUNK AND ITS CONTENTS. SEE BELOW. EVDOKIMOFF GUESSED THIS TOP MIGHT HAVE COME FROM RUSSIA. HE THOUGHT IT WAS VERY OLD FASHIONED. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WORN FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION. *UPDATE* IN 2018, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF BOXED TEXTILES AND ACCSSORIES, INCLUDING A TOILET SET AND JACKET DONATED BY WALLY EVDOKIMOFF. DURING A PHONE CONVERSATION WITH PUNDYK IN 2018, EVDOKIMOFF STATED HIS FAMILY LIVED IN YORKTON, SASKATCHEWAN AND BRILLIANT, BRITISH COLUMBIA. THEY WERE MOST LIKELY A PART OF THE DOUKHOBOR COMMUNITIES IN THOSE AREAS. HE CONFIRMED THAT HIS PARENTS FIRST ARRIVED IN ALBERTA IN 1952.
