MADE IN U.S.A. STAMPED ON BOTTOM. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE ROY CLINIC. THE FOLLOWING HISTORY OF THE ROY CLINIC WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM GALT ARCHIVES, DR. LOUIS ARTHUR ROY'S LETHBRIDGE HERALD OBITUARY, AND THE BOOK 'MEDICAL CLINICS AND PHYSICIANS OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA' BY GERALD M. MCDOUGALL AND FIONA C. HARRIS (1991). DR. LOUIS A. ROY WAS BORN IN MOOSOMIN, SASKATCHEWAN IN 1888. AFTER RECEIVING HIS EARLY EDUCATION THERE, HE PURSUED MEDICINE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, WHERE HE EARNED A BACHELOR OF MEDICINE IN 1911. AFTER COMPLETING AN INTERNSHIP AT THE ROYAL VICTORIA HOSPITAL IN MONTREAL, FOCUSING ON SURGERY AND PATHOLOGY, DR. ROY MOVED TO ALBERTA IN 1913. HE PRACTICED WITH DOCTORS DEVEBER AND CAMPBELL IN LETHBRIDGE FOR FIVE YEARS BEFORE JOINING THE ROYAL CANADIAN ARMY MEDICAL CORPS. HE WAS STATIONED IN A BRITISH MILITARY HOSPITAL IN KENT AS A PATHOLOGIST AND EARNED THE RANK OF CAPTAIN. UPON WAR'S END DR. ROY RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE AND WORKED WITH THE CAMPBELL GROUP UNTIL 1936, WHEN HE PARTNERED WITH DR. VALERIAN SWANCESKY (AND LATER, WITH DR. STEPHEN SCHMALTZ) TO CREATE THE ROY CLINIC GROUP. THE CLINIC WAS HOUSED ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF THE SHERLOCK BLOCK. DR. ROY WAS ACCREDITED AS A SURGEON BY THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF CANADA IN 1945, AND HE PRACTICED AT THE CLINIC UNTIL HIS RETIREMENT IN 1961. DR. ROY'S SON, DR. DOUGLAS GAETEN ROY ALSO JOINED THE PRACTICE IN 1945. DR. LOUIS A. ROY DIED IN 1964, BUT THE PRACTICE CONTINUED WITH ADDITIONS INCLUDING DR. DONALD ARTHUR RICE AND DR. JAMES ALFRED MCNALLY. THE CLINIC MOVED TO 2ND AVENUE SOUTH IN 1959, AND OPERATED THERE UNDER THE ROY NAME UNTIL BECOMING THE PARK MEDICAL GROUP IN THE LATE 1980S. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR HARCOPIES OF DR. LOUIS A. ROY'S OBITUARY AND RELEVANT PAGES OF MCDOUGALL AND HARRIS' BOOK.

UPON DONATION TO THE MUSEUM, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN ASKED MEMBERS OF THE GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING (GSN) ALUMNAE TO PROVIDE WRITTEN ANSWERS ON QUESTIONS PERTAINING TO EACH ARTIFACT DONATED IN THE COLLECTION. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS COME FROM THOSE RESPONSES CORRESPONDING TO EACH INDIVIDUAL ARTIFACT. THIS IS AN ARM OR A FOOT BATH. IT WAS USED FOR SOAKING AN ARM OR A FOOT BECAUSE OF INFECTION OR IF THERE WAS SWELLING. THIS BATH WAS USED BY NURSES ON THE MEDICAL AND SURGICAL WARDS. IT IS AN EXAMPLE OF AN EARLIER BATH, WITH THE BATHS BECOMING STAINLESS STEEL AFTER 1955. THE HISTORY STATES THAT THE ARTIFACT “WAS CONTAINED FOR INFECTION CONTROL [AND] INDIVIDUALIZED FOR PATIENTS.” THIS ARTIFACT IS AMONG A COLLECTION DONATED NEAR THE END OF 2014, BEING THE SECOND WAVE OF GSN ARTIFACTS ACQUIRED THAT YEAR. WITH THE FIRST WAVE OF GSN ARTIFACTS COLLECTED IN SUMMER 2014, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED THE PAST ARCHIVISTS OF THE GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING COLLECTION, SHIRLEY HIGA, ELAINE HAMILTON, AND SUE KYLLO, ABOUT THEIR INVOLVEMENT WITH THE GSN ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION AND THE HISTORY OF ARTIFACTS DONATED. FOR THAT INFORMATION, PLEASE REFER TO P20140006001. PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

*UPDATE* THIS ARTIFACT WAS INCLUDED IN A 2010 PALLET RACKING SURVEY CONDUCTED BY NICOLE HEMBROFF, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT. ON OCTOBER 21, 2010 HEMBROFF MET WITH BRYAN BEERLING (SON OF LESLIE W. BEERLING) TO OBTAIN MORE INFORMATION FROM HIM ABOUT THIS ARTIFACT. ACCORDING TO BRYAN BEERLING, THE SPUTUM BASIN (AS WELL AS A DENTAL CHAIR) CAME FROM THE "MEDICAL AND DENTAL BUILDING" (PREVIOUSLY LOCATED AT 437 7TH ST. SOUTH). THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD STATES THAT ON JULY 14, 1954 AN EXPLOSION OCCURRED IN THE "LETHBRIDGE DENTAL LABORATORIES" LOCATED IN THE "MEDICAL AND DENTAL BUILDING." THE EXPLOSION HAPPENED WHEN A BOTTLE OF WAX SOLVENT (COMPOSED OF A 50/50 SOLUTION OF KEROSENE AND ETHER) WAS DROPPED AND THE FUMES IGNITED. ONE WOMAN, EDITH SHIELDS, DIED AND FOUR OTHERS WERE BURNED. SHEILDS' DRESS CAUGHT ON FIRE AND SHE DIED FROM BURNS THAT COVERED APPROXIMATELY 85% OF HER BODY. BEERLING SAID HIS FATHER, LESLIE BEERLING, ACQUIRED THE CHAIR AS A RESULT OF THIS EXPLOSION. ONE OF THE DENTISTS, DR. ELMO FLETCHER, GAVE IT TO LESLIE BEERLING IN ORDER FOR HIM TO REFURBISH IT. SEE P19651980000 AND P19662019 FOR MORE INFORMATION. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

History
DONOR STATES BEDPAN IS FROM THE VAN HAARLEM HOSPITAL, IN LETHBRIDGE. DONOR'S MOTHER, SOPHIA DUNN (NEE ENGEN), GAVE BIRTH TO DONOR AND HER TWIN BROTHER, MYRLE, THERE. SOPHIA CONTRACTED AN ILLNESS THAT INFECTED BEDPANS IN THE HOSPITAL, AND RESULTED IN THE DEATH OF 8 OR 9 WOMEN IN THE HOSPITAL. WHEN SOPHIA BECAME ILL SHE LEFT THE HOSPITAL TO BE TAKEN CARE OF AT DR. WOODCOCK'S HOUSE. DR. WOODCOCK WAS DONOR'S UNCLE (SOPHIA'S BROTHER-IN-LAW), AND SOPHIA FELT MORE COMFORTABLE THERE THAN STAYING AT THE HOSPITAL. BECAUSE BEDPAN WAS INFECTED, IT LEFT WITH SOPHIA WHEN SHE MOVED FROM THE HOSPITAL TO DR. WOODCOCK'S HOUSE. DONOR WAS BORN JUNE, 1920 AND HER MOTHER PASSED AWAY IN AUGUST OF THAT YEAR. DONOR AND HER TWIN BROTHER, AND AN OLDER SISTER, MERLENE, WERE RAISED BY THEIR GRANDPARENTS, MR & MRS. C.K. ENGEN. THE BEDPAN HAS JUST BEEN STORED AWAY SINCE THEN AS FAR AS DONOR CAN REMEMBER. SEE P20020075001-3-GA FOR MORE HISTORY ON DR. WOODCOCK AND P19738569000-GA FOR MORE HISTORY ON DONOR'S FAMILY.
