History / Biographical
The Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park Association (WGIPPA) is an organization within Rotary International comprised mainly of Rotarians from Districts 5360, 5370 and 5390, although any Rotarian in good standing can be a member of the WGIPPA. The WGIPPA continues to promote the peace park concept, and peace among nations generally, through annual assemblies and ceremonies like 'Hands Across the Border'. "The establishing of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park is essentially a Rotary project. At the first annual good-will meeting fostered by the Cardston Rotary Club held at the Prince of Wales Hotel, Waterton Lakes Park, on Saturday, July 4th, 1931, between the Rotarians of Alberta and Montana, the following resolution was presented for consideration and carried, unanimously. Moved by Rev Canon S.H. Middleton, Cardston, and seconded by Harry B. Mitchell of Great Falls. 'Whereas one hundred members of the Rotary Clubs, representing the cities of Cardston, Lethbridge and Calgary of Alberta; Great Falls, Kalispell and Missoula of Montana, and Estevan, Saskatchewan, are assembled together attending meeting at the Waterton Lakes National Park; An Whereas, it has been decided that a similar annual meeting be held alternately at Glacier Park, Montana and Waterton National Park, Alberta; Therefore, be it Resolved, that the proper authorities be petitioned to commence negotiations to establish the two parks indictaed as a permanent International Peace Park, which shall be definitely set aside for this laudable purpose. Pledging our loyalty and allegiance to foster all international relationships.' Negotiations were immediately commenced with the local representatives of the Governments concerned, Brig. General J.S. Stewart, C.M.G., D.S.O., M.P. for Alberta, and the Hon. Scott Leavitt for Montana. Bills were duly presented during the 1932 session before the Federal Government, Washington, and the Dominion Government, Ottawa, both Houses working separately and conjointly in their respective spheres, which resulted in the official proclamation that the two parks be henceforth designated as 'the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park'..."

History / Biographical
In summer of 2012, the Galt Museum celebrated local competitive sports with a special exhibit featuring current participants, sports stories, and historic and current memorabilia. Competitive sports have long been an indelible part of human culture: people like to challenge each other and themselves to achieve physical and mental success. Involvement in sports helps humans stay healthy, improve physical strength and dexterity, develop team spirit and, above all, have fun. The exhibit focused on challenges and successes faced by some amazing local personalities including athletes, coaches and managers, officials, sponsors, casual athletes and the fan. The project also looked at the impact of sports on economics, recreational infrastructure and community identity in Lethbridge and southwestern Alberta.

History / Biographical
Robert John Gordon was born on 18 June 1869 in Salt Lake City, Utah and raised in the Bear Lake district of northern Utah. On 23 June 1892, Mr. Gordon and Fannie Vernon Schutt married in Logan, Utah. In 1895 Mr. Gordon entered the Agricultural College of Utah with an honours degree in Civil Engineering. Shortly after his graduation, Robert Gordon received a letter from the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints directing him to move to southern Alberta to assist with the construction of the irrigation project that brought water from the St. Mary's River to Lethbridge. In 1899 Mr. Gordon, his wife and their daughter Iza Dolores moved first to Cardston, and then to Stirling. When the irrigation project was completed, Charles Alexander Magrath approached Mr. Gordon to encourage him to apply for the position of District Land Surveyor with the provincial government. He was hired, and the Gordon family moved to Lethbridge in 1907. While in Lethbridge, Robert Gordon surveyed the routes of many roads and the locations of many traffic bridges in southern Alberta. After seven years in Lethbridge, the Gordons moved to Edmonton when Robert was promoted to the position of Provincial Chief Engineer. Robert Gordon remained with the provincial government for two years, and then returned to Salt Lake City with his family. They later moved to Los Angeles, California where Robert John Gordon died on 20 October 1941. [source: 'A Short Biography of Robert John Gordon 1869-1941' by his grandson, Donald V. Steele.

History / Biographical
"The development of natural gas in southern Alberta created the promise of a great future for the area and no company played a bigger part than Canadian Western Natural Gas, Light, Heat and Power Co. created in 1912. Eugene Coste, now considered the “father of the natural gas industry” had a pivotal role in the search for natural gas in southern Alberta. He directed drilling which began in 1908 and by February, 1909 Old Glory (Bow Island No. 1) became the first successful well in what would become the Bow Island field, about 80 miles east of Lethbridge near the South Saskatchewan River. Drilling of more producing wells proved up the Bow Island field and Canadian Western built a 170-mile transmission line in 1912 to serve customers from Lethbridge to Calgary. Exploration continued in the area with considerable good fortune. In August 1923 a major discovery was made six miles southeast of the town of Foremost, Alberta, south of the Bow Island field. The Lethbridge Herald declared the new 17 million cubic foot well was the “best well struck in eight years” and three more wells were immediately drilled. Combined with the capability of the wells in the Bow Island field, this new discovery heightened prospects of great things to come. Sufficient gas supply was assured for Lethbridge, Calgary and the intervening towns. Most importantly, the new production would ensure the financial success of Canadian Western as well as the addition of new customers attracted to the convenience of winter heating and year round cooking with natural gas. Plans were begun to connect the Foremost field to the company’s system. With approval from the Alberta Utilities Board in May 1924, natural gas rates were increased to 43 cents per thousand cubic feet for two years to finance this expansion . Included in this financial arrangement were the purchase and delivery of the steel pipe. the building of a 10-inch pipeline from Foremost to Burdett, a distance of about 32 miles, where it would connect with the 16-inch transmission line to Calgary plus the drilling of an additional well in the Foremost field, bringing to four the number of wells there. An associated private telephone line would also be erected. The one caveat to this rate increase was that the new pipeline was to be completed by the end of October giving Canadian Western just six months to complete the plan and execute the job. Work began immediately. James J. Morrison , construction superintendent, who had been with the company since 1913, was in charge of building the new pipeline. Morrison was responsible for the logistics of hiring men, assembling and transporting the supplies, setting up a moveable construction camp complete with facilities to feed the men, meeting time and budgetary restrictions as well as tying in the new line. A gasoline-powered ditching machine was used to trench the pipeline route which had already been surveyed in preparation for the work. Much of the land the pipeline crossed consisted of sandy soil but when they reached the bottom of Forty Mile Coulee, the ditcher began spewing up oyster shells from a 12-inch layer encountered just a couple of feet below the surface of the ground. The men had no way of knowing then that millions of years before, this area had been covered by an inland sea and the oysters were among several types of mollusks that palaeontologists would eventually discover in a number of other places as proof of Alberta’s natural and geologic history. At the time, however, the oyster shells were simply an oddity to the pipeliners, an unlikely finding in an unexpected location. The steel pipe arrived at the Burdett railway station where it was unloaded at an adjacent staging area in preparation for delivery to the job site. Horse drawn wagons conveyed the pipe south from the station. Pipe was laid out parallel to the newly dug ditch. The labourers joined the pipe sections with Dresser couplings, coated the joints with hot enamel, a tar like substance, and lowered the pipe into the ground. It was back breaking work. But by mid-September only seven miles of the 32-mile pipeline remained to be completed. One of the biggest projects of the summer for Canadian Western, the job was under Morrison’s constant scrutiny with occasional visits from P. D. (Porter Delphi) Mellon, the company’s chief engineer located in Calgary. The company president H. B. Pearson, in Calgary, received reports of the progress on a regular basis and served as the project’s spokesman when newspaper reporters needed updates. With the pipeline in the ditch, pressure testing for leaks was well underway by October 14, two weeks before the target completion date, the ditch was filled in and graded and a week later, the pipeline crew was disbanded. The new Foremost field had been connected on time to Canadian Western’s main line adding significantly to the total of 55 million cubic feet a day of natural gas available for customers all the way north to Calgary. Between the inception of the company in 1912 and the completion of the Foremost line, the number of customers served had more than trebled. Canadian Western’s system at the end of 1924 which included 19 producing gas wells and 254 miles of main trunk lines in southern Alberta, served a territory of more than 220 miles and a population of 90,000. “The problem of gas supply has been solved,” the company told the public in November, 1924. “We claim for ourselves neither perfection nor more than ordinary efficiency. We honestly feel, however, that about all that can be done by a band of trained, loyal and enthusiastic employees in the way of good service is being done....” [Source: 'The Foremost Pipeline & James J. Morrison', by Chris Morrison. 2011]

History / Biographical
The Lethbridge Community Band Society (LCBS) began in 1987 thanks to the collaboration of Robert M. Cook, then the Director of the School of Fines Arts at the University, Barbara Walker, Coordinator of Music Programs for Lethbridge School District No. 51 and Bob Lewis, Principal of Gilbert Paterson School. The band was formed to fill a void in the music scene of the city by providing people of the community an opportunity to continue their enjoyment of playing. A second band was formed in 1988 for intermediate players and a beginners’ band was formed in 1989. The band[s] became a non-profit society in 1988 and in 1989 became a member of the Alberta Band Association. Of the 40 original members, seven remain with the band. The senior and intermediate bands underwent name changes throughout the past 23 years. The present Gold Band was called the Advanced, Senior or Thursday Band. The present Silver Band was referred to as the Intermediate or the Wednesday Band. Gold band conductors have been Bob Cook [1987-1997], Don Robb [1997-2007], Doug Scales [2007-2009] and Ken Rogers [2009-2016], Mark Ward [2017- present]. The Silver band conductors have been Arnold Mangold [1989-1991], Ken Rogers[1992-1999] Dennis Orr [1999-2002] Karen Fugita [2004-2010] and Sam Yamamoto [2010-present]. Bronze Band conductors included Arnold Mangold [1989] Dennis Orr [1999-2001] and Betty Upton [2001-2004]. By 2004, many of the players in the Bronze Band had advanced to the Silver Band and the Bronze Band was discontinued. A variety of commissioned works have been composed for the Gold Band. Titles include ‘Ride the Wind’ by David Squires [1997], ‘Concerto Del Garda’ by Elizabeth Raum [2003] and many works by Howard Cable [2001-2010]. The LCBS introduced the Frank Hosek Band Award in 1988. This award is given to a nominated musician of the band who has not only excelled in music but has contributed to the work of the LCBS behind the scenes. The award honours Frank Hosek, a musician, band conductor and music teacher in the Crowsnest Pass and later in Lethbridge. The bands of the LCBS have won several awards through the years. The Gold Band received the Silver Trumpet Award for outstanding band; several Senior Competition Awards, Grade V, Kiwanis Music Festival; the Sudler Silver Scroll Award; and the Gold Award, 2004 Alberta International Band Festival. The Gold Band was also named “Alberta’s Best” in 1993. The Silver Band had won awards at several Kiwanis Music Festivals. The LCBS bands have several concerts throughout the year: Spring and Christmas, Canada Day and Remembrance Day. The bands also play at festivals and other community events when invited.

History / Biographical
Irma Dogterom is a local historian, community activist, author of several books and a long-time active member of the Lethbridge Historical Society. Mrs. Dogterom was born in Raymond, Alberta, and moved to Lethbridge a few years later. She attended Westminster School and Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. She was employed by A.E. Cross Studio as photographic lab assistant. She married Jacob Dogterom in 1950. After their four children reached school age, Mrs. Dogterom started working as secretary and library technician at a country school. In 1968 she transferred to Galbraith School as Library Clerk and later to Paterson School. During the summer break, Mrs. Dogterom volunteered at the Galt Museum. After her retirement in 1989, Irma Dogterom dedicated her time to local history research. She helped compile a district local history (Maclean School and Wilson/White School area). In the early 1990s, she took the job of Secretary and Newsletter editor of the Lethbridge Historical Society. As a member of the LHS executive she was involved in preparation of several historical publications and the Newsletter. She is the author of "Where Was It?: A Guide to Early Lethbridge Buildings". Irma Dogterom spearheaded the initiative to recognize the contribution of women in the city, which resulted in the Legacy Ridge Project. The city agreed to name an area west on the west side of 13 St. North "Legacy Ridge" and name streets and parks there after local women. A special committee did a research study on accomplishments of the proposed individuals and published a booklet.

History / Biographical
The Lethbridge Historical Society originated in 1888 as a scientific and historical society. The organizers included Alexander Moffat, John D. Higinbotham, Charles Magrath and other well known pioneers. There was some talk of preserving records but the main emphasis was on biweekly meetings at which papers were presented. The first historical society seemed to fold up in the 1890s. There was an economic depression, growth in Lethbridge was stagnant and no one was interested in history. The historical society was resurrected in 1923. The purpose at that time was to use it as a vehicle to commemorate our coal mining pioneers, specifically Nicholas Sheran. Those responsible for the reorganization included G.J. Broderick, Judge J.A.Jackson and A.B. Hogg. After considerable work, the National Sites and Monuments Board of Canada was persuaded to recognize Sheran's contribution with a marker and plaque in Galt Gardens. After this success, the local historical society seemed to become inactive, although some meetings were held and papers presented from 1923 to 1928. In 1935, it was brought back to life once again. The prime movers were George Watson, J.S. Kirkham and A.B.Hogg. This time the purpose was to use the historical society as an organization to handle the 50th anniversary celebration of the founding of Lethbridge. and again, after a successful celebration on July 23-26, 1935 the society again vanished from sight. It was resurrected a fourth time in 1958, at the instigation of Lethbridge City Council, who wanted to establish a museum in the city. Alderman Cliff Black tried, but was not able to reactivate a Pemmican Club Committee that had been trying to get funds to build a replica of Fort Whoop-Up. He called on John Dutton and Muriel Gentleman to set up a historical society. The Civic Museum was opened in three rooms of the former Bowman School in 1964, with the historical society operating the facility. The museum moved in 1966 to the former Galt Hospital, and in 1967 re-opened as the Sir Alexander Galt museum. The historical society ran the facility until 1971, when on their recommendation it was taken over by the City of Lethbridge. In 1966 two publications of the Lethbridge historical society, booklets written by Alex Johnston on the Indian Battle of 1870 and on the riverboat era, launched an important part of the society's work - the publishing of historical material. Since then over 40 publications have been produced by the society, as well a bimonthly newsletter in circulation continuously since 1967. It was the need for funds to support its publishing program that led the Lethbridge Historical Society to incorporate under the Provincial Societies Act on 19 march 1987. The society required the legal status incorporation provided in order to secure grants and manage its own financial affairs. Since 1987 the Lethbridge Historical Society has continued to meet and publish information relevant to the study of the history of Lethbridge and southern Alberta. The society also organizes an annual banquets, field trips to historic sites in southern Alberta, and the Alex Johnston memorial lecture series. The society has also placed several markers at locations throughout the city, documenting various aspects of local history.
