History / Biographical
John Jr. Frouws and Irene Nagy both grew up in Southern Alberta. The Frouws family moved from the Netherlands in 1925 and eventually settled Lethbridge in 1928. The Nagy family moved from Hungary to Taber in 1905, and settled in Diamond City in 1908. John Jr. Frouws and Irene Nagy met in Lethbridge as teenagers and began a 70+ year love affair, with each other and their community. Irene Nagy worked as a hairdresser during the 1930s in Calgary, Lethbridge, Chicago, and Windsor. Meanwhile, John Jr. Frouws stayed in Lethbridge working in the Galt Gardens for the City of Lethbridge. Keeping in touch throughout this time, Irene and John reunited in Lethbridge just before WWII. John Jr. enlisted in the Canadian Armed Forces and served in WWII from 1941-1945, while Irene stayed in Southern Alberta. Throughout their separation, the couple exchanged letters. While John was on military leave in 1943, they married, and he returned to England days later to receive demolition training. After the war, Irene and John Jr. Frouws were reunited and settled in Lethbridge, where John worked for the City of Lethbridge as a streetcar motorman and bus driver. In the same year, the Frouws’ purchased a new veteran’s home at 134 Dieppe Blvd in Parkdale, and started a family with two daughters, Carol and Diane. John Jr. retired from the City in 1977. Throughout their lives, John and Irene Frouws enjoyed tending their garden, which won multiple Lethbridge and District Horticultural Society awards through the 1950s. Dedicated to their family, their community, and to each other, John Jr. and Irene Frouws donated generously to local and overseas organizations.

Scope and Content
Photographs 20191038002/001-20191038002/003, John and Irene Frouws won awards for their garden in 1947, 1948 and 1949, the photographs likely date back to this period. Absence of sidewalks is another giveaway – the sidewalks [in the neighbourhood] were not built until the 1950s. The photographs were most probably done by a professional photographer. Photographs of Irene Nagy 20191038004/004-20191038004/005, were probably from the late 1930s at the time she took her course in hairdressing in Calgary (1938), similar to the photo John carried with him during the WWII service. Irene was four years older than John. John used to be a playmate of Irene’s younger brother, Mitch, and visited the Nagy house in Diamond City regularly. Irene probably didn’t pay much attention to him at the time, but years after they fell in love. The picture 2019.1038/004008, shows John and Irene camping in the coulees in what is now Alexander Wilderness Park; they often went for an outdoor picnic in the beginning of their relationship. Photograph 20191038004/010 shows John Jr. standing next to his prized car. It was taken just before he enlisted with the Canadian Armed Forces and went off to war. He loved his car and did not want to sell it, so instead loaned it to his older sister and her husband. They pair eventually sold the car before John returned home, without his consent or knowledge. Photograph 20191038004/011 shows John Jr. pushing a wheelbarrow, while he was working for the City of Lethbridge. John Jr.’s family had fallen on hard times. His father had died trying to save a young boy from drowning in the Old Man River, which required John Jr., the eldest son, to be taken out of school in Grade 11 in order to provide for the large Frouws family of seven children. He ended up getting a job, thanks to Bill Hope, with the City of Lethbridge Parks Department working in the Galt Gardens. This was the job that John Jr. found real happiness in, and fueled his passion for gardening and plants. Photograph 2019103800/4012 shows a young Irene riding to the Six Mile School with the Nagy family horse, Old Judy, in Diamond City. Photograph 20191038004/007 was the photo that Irene sent to John Jr. during the war, and it was the only photograph that he kept with him during his time overseas. Photograph 20191038004/006 shows the time that John met his youngest brother for a final goodbye before he went off to war. During his time at demolition training in Petawawa, ON, John got a brief leave and went to Peace River to see Irene. It was during this brief leave, around 1942-43, that John proposed to Irene and asked her to stay in Lethbridge for him. The photograph 20191038004/013 is of John Jr.’s father’s family in the Netherlands. John’s father came over to Canada alone, around the time the photo was taken in order to make a better life for himself, and settled in the Lethbridge area. He was a teenager at the time, and struggled during his first several years in Lethbridge. Eventually, he built a life and a family in Lethbridge, despite the hardships that they endured as John Jr. was growing up. The 20191038/005 photograph collection was taken around 1941, in England before the invasion of Normandy. John Jr. worked his way up the ranks to Staff Sergeant. Throughout this time of the war, his troops would go out drinking during their breaks; but because John did not drink, he stayed at their camp in Ontario and instead wrote the letters to Irene during these times. Photographs 20191038005/002 and 20191038005/003 shows the second group that John was stationed with. John and another soldier ended up missing the train and the boat that was supposed to take them overseas to their next station, and instead John and this Unknown Soldier stayed and received extra training with this second group of soldiers, shown in the photographs. It was during this second round of training that John got highly specialized training in defusing bombs and other electrical engineering work, and it was this group of soldiers that John Jr. went overseas with. The 20191038/006 collection of photographs shows the entire Frouws family tending and spending time in their garden. Everyone in the family enjoyed taking care of the flowers and the vegetables, especially during the summer months, where all the neighborhood children would come over to their home to shell peas and pick flowers. All the children in the neighborhood were born after WWII and came from military families, so they all grew up together and the neighborhood was a very close group that became similar to an extended family. The photograph 20191038007/003 shows the Nagy family in Diamond City. Irene’s older brother, Steve on the far right in the hat and suit, moved to Chicago around 1933. He became a taxi driver there who drove around the infamous Al Capone on a few occasions. Photographs 20191038007/004 and 2019.1038/007006 show Irene with John’s family at the time of their engagement. File 20191038/010 contains Irene’s hairdressing notebook from her class in Calgary in 1938. Irene loved her hairdresser profession and throughout her life, she styled and cut the hair of many of her friends and family. The “autograph” notebook in File 20191038/009 is signed by some of Irene’s friends who got their hair done by Irene in the 1930s. It was one of Irene greatest passions in life, along with her family and their garden.

History / Biographical
The idea of a resort hotel in Waterton was conceived by Louis Warren Hill Sr., then chairman of the Great Northern Railway, and finally realized in 1926 after the end of Prohibition in Alberta. This was part of the plan to lure American tourists to Glacier and then north across the U.S.-Canada border to Alberta. The hotel was opened on July 25, 1927 and was promoted as epitome of luxury in the wilderness with steam-heated rooms, hot and cold running water, electricity, a full service dining room, an elevator, laundry, beauty parlor and barber shop, all overseen by professional and uniformed staff and a tavern to serve beer to thirsty Americans. The bustling community of Waterton Park got a shock when the Great Northern didn’t open the Prince of Wales Hotel in 1933, with the railway citing the downturn in economic conditions caused by the Great Depression. The railway said it would not reopen the hotel until a more direct route was built between Waterton and Glacier, versus all bus traffic having to go via Cardston. Construction of Chief Mountain International Highway was undertaken as a work relief project and completed in 1936, when the railway kept its promise and reopened the hotel. The new route between the parks was shorter and more scenic. The hotel would again be closed, from 1942 to 1945, due to the Second World War. In December 1960, the Prince of Wales Hotel was sold by the Great Northern Railway to Glacier Park, Inc., headed by Don Hummel of Tucson, Arizona. GPI also acquired all the other railway hotel assets in Glacier. The Great Northern had long ago lost interest in the money-losing hotel chain as train passenger ridership declined in the wake of rising auto travel and tour bus trips. To make the operations profitable, Hummel severely reduced staff, became very deliberate in building maintenance, and changed services. Hummel was barely into his fourth summer of operations in 1964 when heavy rain and rapid snowmelt through Waterton and Glacier caused some of the most severe flooding in memory. The road into Waterton was under water, as was much of the commercial district of town. Waterton residents who hadn’t fled earlier were sheltered at the Prince of Wales Hotel, which had its own water and electrical supply, as well as full heating capability. The scene would be repeated in 1975 when the townsite flooded, again. Major changes would come to the Prince of Wales Hotel in 1981 when Hummel’s Glacier Park, Inc. was sold to Greyhound Food Management. GPI would be reconstituted as a new entity and after a series of shuffles, is today a division of Phoenix-based Viad Corporation. After years of delayed maintenance, GPI began a series of upgrades to the hotel. In 1996, GPI president Dale Scott, working with Calgary architect Ron Goodfellow, attempted to persuade Parks Canada to permit a major expansion of the Prince of Wales Hotel. A series of drafts were created, some looking very much like plans the Great Northern Railway had considered and then shelved in 1928. Scott presented his proposals at public and private hearings. They were rejected, in part on the basis that the view of the hotel and Upper Waterton Lake presented such an iconic image that it should not be tampered with.

History / Biographical
The Waterton Natural History Association was formed in 1983 in Waterton Lakes National Park (WLNP) as the first co-operating association in Western Canada. As a non-profit association with Parks Canada registered in the Province of Alberta, under the direction of a Board of Directors, its role was to provide and publish materials relevant to Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, provide funds for and execute projects undertaken to enhance WLNP and to sponsor special events and services for the enjoyment and education of the park visitor. The WNHA operated out of the Heritage Centre in the old Fire Hall on Waterton Avenue which was altered to house a museum of natural and cultural history exhibits about the area. The organization sold books, and topographic maps, sponsored natural history related events, workshops and art exhibits and well as providing one-on-one information to the visiting public. Summer employment programs were supported through the hiring of students, seniors, handicapped etc. Membership in the organization was open to all interested parties for a nominal fee. Over time, the WNHA operated the Crooked Creek Campground outside the park and sold plaques for a Cemetery Wall as well as raising funds for its various activities. In February, 2018, the association was formally dissolved at the final annual general meeting.

History / Biographical
The Chinook Country Tourist Association was a stakeholder-based, not-for-profit organization that supported and inspired tourism by providing stakeholder, marketing, and visitor information services. It was associated with Travel Alberta, and the company was based in Lethbridge. The Chinook Country Tourist Association promoted tourism and travel throughout Southern Alberta. The Chinook Country Tourist Association produced a number of annual publications that are distributed throughout Southern Alberta, including “Alberta South” travel planners and guides, multiple brochures, and maps. They worked to promote the Southern Alberta area to tourists from all over the world. The CCTA had been in Lethbridge for 50 years and operated one of the few year-round visitor centres in Southern Alberta. The Association’s executive director Nikolaus Wyslouzil announced that in March 2019, the Chinook Country Tourist Association would dissolve and cease all operations in Lethbridge.

Eaton's launched Punkinhead, the teddy bear with the thick woolly tuft of hair, for the Christmas season of 1948. The story of the little bear who eventually gets to be in Santa's Parade charmed children for the next decade and everyone would cheer for Santa's little helper in the Parade. Eaton's distributed story booklets of the sweet little bear's adventures and featured Punkinhead on records and television commercials.

History / Biographical
In 1996, a group of riding enthusiasts, amateur historians, and community minded volunteers formed the Riders of the Plains Commemorative Troop Association. The ROTP’s original purpose was to recreate the riding traditions of the North West Mounted Police, with trail rides and commemorative wagon treks, and participation in public events with period uniforms, drills, firearms, and horses and tack. The six original members of the Troop formed a non-profit society in 1996 with two purposes:
To preserve and protect the history of the North West Mounted Police
To advance the education of the public as it relates to the history of the NWMP. Members participated as a commemorative troop in various events across Western Canada and Montana, including:
NWMP Boundary Commission Wagon Trek, 1997 and 1998
RCMP 125 March West, 1999
Due North wagon trek of the Whoop-Up Trail, 2000-2001
Fort Whoop-Up annual Wild West Weekend, one of the largest re-enactments events in Western Canada. The troop participated in several films, including:
Parks Canada production of the “Battle of Batoche”
CBC production of “Canada, a People’s History”
History Channel’s “The Great March West”
A Scattering of Seeds’ “Nevitt”. In addition, the troop travelled to Batoche, Saskatchewan, Battleford, Saskatchewan, Fort Steele, British Columbia, Fort Walsh, Saskatchewan, Rawleigh, Alberta, and Fort Benton, Montana. They were trained in firearms drill, horsemanship and infantry drill. As early as 1997, the ROTP received a lease on the original site of the Macleod NWMP Barracks, which was home to the North West Mounted Police, the Royal North West Mounted Police and the present day Royal Canadian Mounted Police during the period 1884 to 1922. The ROTP immediately began to plan for restoration and preservation of the site, including recreating the historic flagpole, identifying building sites, gathering of artifacts, conducting research, and building a dedicated membership and an array of alliances. ROTP efforts resulted in the declaration and protection of the site as a Provincial Historic Resource in 2001. Subsequently, the ROTP proposal for funding under the Centennial Legacy Program was approved, providing $1.6 million dollars for reconstruction and restoration of site structures to the late 1890’s period. In addition, the ROTP raised $250,000 in various forms to assist the project. Concurrent with the design and construction of the three reconstructed buildings and the development of the site itself, the ROTP worked hard to accumulate historical and interpretive materials relating to the Barracks period. Replica uniforms and saddles were commissioned. The ROTP celebrated the Official Opening of the Barracks in August of 2005. Unfortunately, relationships with the Fort Macleod Historic Area Society and the Town of Fort Macleod began to sour soon afterwards, culminating in an unfortunate lawsuit in July of 2007 against the ROTP, Fort Whoop Up and two individuals. This, in turn, resulted in a forensic audit, completed in July, 2008 by the Government of Alberta, which found no evidence of fraud, personal gain, or illegal use on the part of the ROTP. The audit also indicated that the major inventory items (uniforms, saddles, firearms and wagons) were properly accounted for. The Riders of the Plains Commemorative Troop Association was dissolved in 2016.

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
Mark Campbell was born and raised in Lethbridge, and he attended the radio arts program at Lethbridge College. Actively engaged in the local fine arts community throughout his life, Campbell worked as a radio broadcaster in the 1970s-1980s. He transitioned to television broadcasting in 1993, working for Global Lethbridge. It was while working at the local radio station 1090 CHEC in the early 1980s that Campbell started the Greetergrammers. The Greetergrammers were a group of friends that could be hired to sing and entertain for scheduled groups around town, and perform to unsuspecting individuals. The group could be hired to perform for birthdays, anniversaries, proposals, going-away parties, or any other special occasion that the client would request. The client would contact Mark Campbell and arrange to have their loved one or friend serenaded by the Greetergrammers at a specific time and place. The group would show up at the arranged location, and surprise the individual, and serenade them with a personalized song based off of a famous tune. As the Greetergram performances started to catch on, Mark Campbell kept schedule books of all of their performances, starting from 1984-2010; however, the Fonds are missing the 2004-2009 schedule books. Information contained in the schedule books include the names of the clients arranging the performances, the unsuspecting individual to be serenated, a few personal characteristics of the individual, and where the performance would take place. The Greetergram performances lasted for approximately 36 years, performing to over 20,000 people.

History / Biographical
Rotary International is an international service organization that operates to bring business and professional people together in order to provide humanitarian services to those peoples, and nations, in need around the world. The Rotary groups are non-political and non-sectarian, and each group is open to all people regardless of race, religion, color, creed, gender or political preference. Rotary International was formed in 1905, in order to better serve the community on a local to global level. Rotarian groups usually gather weekly for breakfast, lunch, or dinner to fulfill the group’s principle of developing friendships and connections in their local area. The Rotary Club of Lethbridge Sunrise was formed in 2001, and meets on Thursday’s at 7 am at the Nord-Bridge Senior's Centre. The Club works to bring local business professionals together to get involved, and help, the local Lethbridge community. Their objective is to: “encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster: FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service; SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society; THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life; FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.” As part of the Sunrise club’s commitments to the local and global community, they aim to: “channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.” These Avenues of Service include: Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, International Service, and Youth Service. One of the global projects that the Lethbridge-Sunrise club became a part of was the Los Amigos Project in 2017. The group heard of the need for a variety of emergency vehicles in Mazatlan, Mexico. In collaboration with the Rotary Clubs in Grande Prairie, the Sunrise Club was able to drive down, and donate, three school buses and emergency supplies to Mazatlan, Mexico. A detailed account of the Los Amigos Project can be found in file 2019.1015/001.
