History / Biographical
The Mathesis Club of Lethbridge was organized on 11 September 1912 by a group of nine women who were interested in self education and self improvement during a period in the city’s history when formal educational opportunities for women were very rare. The club name was taken from a Greek word meaning "searcher of knowledge". A committee consisting of Mrs. Alice J. Heeb, Mrs. Cumming and Mrs. Maurine Daniel was appointed to draft a constitution for the new club. The club’s objectives as stated in that constitution included "self-improvement and united effort toward the highest development of home and community". The first officers of the Mathesis Club were Mrs. F. Stoltze (president), Mrs. A. M. Lafferty (vice president), Mrs. Alice J. Heeb (secretary), Mrs. F. Cumming (treasurer). The club was organized into ‘departments’ that reflected the study interests of the members: Music and Art, History and Literature. Members chose topics of interest from these broad categories and then researched, wrote and presented a paper on their topic at the regular meetings. When the club began meetings were held every two weeks, but later the meeting schedule became monthly. In addition to the departmental programs, meetings frequently featured guest speakers who presented on a variety of topics ranging from religion to scientific advances.At the time there was no public library in Lethbridge and the group arranged to borrow thirty books from the collection of McGill University in Montreal which would remain in the home of one of the members for the use of any of those in the group. During the First World War members joined the local Council of Women and Traveler’s Aid to work through those organizations. Fundraising teas and other events were also held. In World War II the club entertained the armed forces for a week. Membership in the club reached a high in 1917 with 87 members, by 2002 the membership had fallen to 20. Over the years, educational and self-improvement programs became widely available for women and the role of the Mathesis Club as a provider of those opportunities was diminished. A declining and aging membership put more and more pressure on the club, until in 2007 the members decided to dissolve the Mathesis Club. The final meeting was held at Luigi’s Restaurant, 1119 Mayor Magrath Drive South, on 19 June 2007.

History / Biographical
In the spring of 1964 a group of people interested in archaeology met at the home of Frank A Russell to discuss the formation of a local archaeology club. Dr K. Warren Geiger of the Physical Geography department of the University of Alberta was in attendance. In 1965 Dr Geiger returned and with the aid of Police Chief James Carpenter and Dean James Wm Cousins of the University of Lethbridge founded what would be the Alberta Archaeological Society, Lethbridge Centre. Cousins agreed to be president of the group for the remainder of 1965. In 1966 James Carpenter took over as president and the group applied for a charter under the Alberta Societies Act. This was granted in July of 1968. 1967 saw the group find an honourary patron in the person of Senator James Gladston of the Blood Nation. That same year the society put out its first publication, Crystal Springs Indian Camp Site by J A Spencer, edited by R. G. Forbis. Since the formation of the group, meetings have been held at the campus of Lethbridge College. The college provides the space free of charge to the society. Monthly meetings feature a program of guest speakers and presentations pertaining to local archaeology and beyond. The goals of the groups are to promote the proper treatment of archaeological sites. This includes reporting of sites, adherence to government regulations, and use of proper excavation techniques. They also work to provide funding for excavation projects and publications. A provincial newsletter is put out twice yearly in co-operation with other provincial centres. Lethbridge Centre is one of the oldest and largest groups in the Alberta Archaeological Society, but there are also groups in Medicine Hat, Grand Prairie and two in both Calgary and Edmonton. In addition to the publication of the Alberta Archaeological Review semi-annually, the various centres come together each year at an annual meeting hosted by one of the seven centres. An in-depth history was compiled by June Carpenter as part of the Lethbridge Centre’s application process for a New Horizon grant in 1984 and can be found in the files. Details of the group’s activities including guest speakers, projects and publications is included.

History / Biographical
John Joseph Taylor (born 25 June 1915) and Marguerite Taylor (nee Grisak, 14 April 1917-1 December 1984) were married in 1940. John joined the military in November of 1942 and trained in Camrose, AB; Chilliwack, BC and Prince George, BC before deployment to France where he was injured twice on D-Day. Afterwards, he was sent to Birmingham General Hospital in England to recover from a severe arm would before his return to Canada. They had one son, Grange Taylor, born in the summer of 1943 while John was stationed in Chilliwack. While he was away Marguerite wrote “Johnny” frequently, sometimes multiple letters in a single day. She would often start by reminding him how much she missed him and then reassure him that she, and later the baby were doing fine in spite of how much they missed him. Marguerite often writes of how she prays for John and that the war will end soon. She would recount the goings on of her day and what she had done since she had last written and how she cherished his letters. Several letters mention ones that she did not send because she felt they were too sad and did not want to bring him down since he was already so far from home. Early on she writes of a fear of the doctor, but that she will go because she is pregnant and that John would want her to go. She also recounts local gossip regarding the local prisoner of war camp and the dances that she goes to with her friend Annie. She signs most of her letters with a lipstick kiss and “I love you 60 millions & millions more then last time” or something similar. Prior to his military service John was as an industrial painter working at the airports being built for military flight training that were built across southern Alberta. As a result, he developed what they would later discover to be lead poisoning from the lead-based paint. Throughout his military career he was afflicted with ill-health. He would later be diagnosed with Huntington’s Correa, as would his son Grange. Marguerite was a devout catholic and an original member of St. Basil’s Catholic Church in north Lethbridge. She and John lived in Lethbridge until 1961 when they moved to Calgary so that John could find work. While John was away with the military she lived with her family and upon his return they purchased a house through the veteran’s housing program. John was an avid photographer and artist. Included in the donation are several examples of his drawing and photography including photographs of his family and military companions and drawings from his time overseas.

History / Biographical
Beginning in 1995 a group of Lethbridge initiated the process of getting one of the new neighbourhoods in Lethbridge to name its streets after women that had contributed to the community. Under the leadership of chairperson Irma Dogterom, a committee was formed in 1999; members were: Irma Dogterom (Chair), Linda Cody, Georgia Fooks, Trish Hagen, Mary Oordt, Joan Nebelski, and Alderman Barbara Lacey. Frances Weaselfat joined the group and aided with fundraising initiatives. When Lethbridge City Council announced the development of a park northwest of 13th Street and 26th Avenue North the group requested that it be named for a woman. In a presentation to council in June 2001 the committee requested that a planned housing development in that area be named Legacy Ridge instead of Valleyview as was planned and that the streets and parks in the area be named for women. The request was approved and the project opened in August of 2005.

By 1909 several improvements had been made including adding a second storey with the bandstand on the upper level, and a glass fronted room at ground level. The bandstand was reached by a set of stairs on the outside of the building. The ground floor was then occupied by the Board of Trade, and became known as the Board of Trade Building. The building was originally located about 30 metres inside the west boundary of Galt Gardens., opposite 118 5 Street South. In 1911 the building was moved to a location halfway along the north boundary of the park. In June 1912 two wings were added. In February 1922 the Board of Trade Building suffered a fire, but was repaired and was used until 1944, when the Board of Trade moved to the Marquis Hotel. Walter Gurney and his wife Edith applied to lease the building in 1944 to house their museum. Walter collected mounted birds for years before opening the museum. At the time of the museum's opening Walter was employed selling Oliver farm equipment and opertated the musem on week-ends. While he was away on buisiness, Eidth ran the museum.Later, he worked full-time during the week for the Western Savings and Loan Association.The Gurneys had an arrangement with the city whereby in exchange for use of the building and utilities, the Gurneys agreed to keep the museum open Saturday afterrnoon and Sundays. The museum remained in operation until 1961 when the museum closed and the building was demolished on 28 August 1961. The collection was purchaced by (Belmore?) Shultz of the Altamont Museum on the Schultz homestead near Milk River, Alberta. The Altamont Museum closed in 1989, and an auction was held during the week of 14-20 August 1989 to sell off the collections. The Galt Museum and Archives in Lethbridge acquired several artifacts from the auction. Sources: Dogterom, Irma. Where Was It? A Guide to Early Lethbridge Buildings.

History / Biographical
Henry Schwartz was born in Hungary in 1904, later coming to Canada and settling in Alberta with his parents and two brothers. He started in the land business in 1927, working for the colonization department of the Canadian Pacific Railway, placing central European immigrants on farms and ranches in the Lethbridge area. Schwartz was of the original partners of the Colonists Service Association, running the Lethbridge office. (His brother William ran the head office in Calgary, Julius Nemdey the Raymond office, and Deszo Demetrovits the Brooks office.) The focus of the business was the sale of land and ship tickets to immigrants from Central Europe. Following the Depression only the Lethbridge office remained and Henry became the sole owner, re-naming it Schwartz Agencies. Later, when his sons Gordon and Eddie (Edmunde) joined him as vice-president and treasurer respectively, he changed the name again to Schwartz and Sons. The business expanded into travel, real estate, insurance, mortgage and appraisal services. Moving from their Downtown location on 5th Street to College Mall in 1969, the business ventured into property development in the later 1960s. A separate business, Schwartz-Built Homes Ltd. (1967), acted as builder, although other builders with varying levels of Schwartz involvement were also used. (Such as Omni Construction and TELFER Homes). Upon Henry’s retirement, Gordon took over management of the firm until its sale to Logan Tail, Bill Henderson and Tim Filik in 1972. The Schwartz name was retained, and in 1980, Schwartz Realty Ltd., as it was then known, merged with McKay Simmons Really Ltd. becoming McKay Simmons Schwartz Realty Ltd. Information for the biographical sketch was taken from the records and Lethbridge Herald obituary 12 May 1981.

History / Biographical
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Rebekahs “To Improve and Elevate the Character of Mankind…” The IOOF was begun in the 1700’s in England, and the oldest existing record of a meeting of the Odd Fellows dates to 1748 and took place in the Globe Tavern in England. Some people believe that the Odd Fellows may have origins dating back to the Roman occupation of England, as Romans living in the area were referred to as “Fellow Citizens.” Another possible origin may be from The Ancient Order of the Bucks, a fraternal organisation already in existence in England at the time with similar symbolism and ideals. During the 18th century in Europe, it was a strange occurrence to find benevolent people and societies dedicated to the helping those in need and pursuing projects for the betterment of all people. Persons affiliated with such an organization were referred to as “Odd Fellows.” It is believed that this is a possible explanation for how the society was named, although there is another explanation that the Brotherhoods were made up of men from various or odd trades, as opposed to larger single-trade organisations such as the Masons. The IOOF website claims that the origin of the fraternity name is unknown. Odd Fellows are also known as “The Three Link Fraternity,“ the three links representing Friendship, Love, and Truth. Rebekah Degrees were first awarded to wives or daughters of Odd Fellow members, but Rebekahs later became established Lodges themselves, becoming the women’s branch of the Odd Fellow Fraternity. Rebekah Lodges eventually accepted both female and male membership. The first Rebekah Lodge was established in Bloomfield, Iowa in 1868. According to this research, the Lethbridge Willow Branch Rebekah Lodge may have been the first Rebekah Lodge in Alberta, holding its first meeting on October 26, 1900. The next oldest recorded establishment is the Grand Lodge of Alberta in 1905. The first meeting of the Rebekah Lodge in Lethbridge was on October 26, 1900 for the purpose of nominating officers to the newly appointed order. This was to become the Willow Branch Rebekah Lodge #2 in Lethbridge. Present were Brothers Oliver, Pipes, Henderson (treasurer), R. Niveu, R.Scott, Bolderson (chaplain), John Scott (secretary). On the second meeting of the Willow Branch Lodge, the following candidates were installed into the Rebekah Degree: Maggie Davis, Laura Davis, E.J. Fleetwood, Mary Stafford, John Stafford, D.C. Murray, and D. Keane.On the third meeting of the Lodge, the following officers were installed: Oliver (Warden), Pipes (Conductor), G. Kerr (Inside Guardian), Davies (Outside Guardian). Although uncertain, it is thought that the Willow Branch Lodge amalgamated with the Dominion Rebekah Lodge. Both the Willow Branch Lodge, and later, the Dominion Rebekah Lodge functioned largely as community support and social groups. They organized community gatherings such as dances and celebrations, visited the sick in hospitals and homes, and sent condolences and cared for the families who had lost loved ones. With the establishment of the Dominion Rebekah Lodge on July 1, 1914, the following women and men were Charter Members installed into the order by Sister Morden, Past President of the Rebekah Assembly of Alberta, and assisted by Sister Anne Maxwell and Sister A. Morden Jr: - Sisters Agnes A. While, Edna J. Gowin, Anna A. Skinner, Maude M. Bradshaw, Margaret L. Maxwell, Maud C. Cudoba, Hatlie(?) Sinclair, Lina Kanneman, Annie Smith, Annie Maxwell, Edna Stibbs, Annie Morden Jr.; Brothers H.S. While, R.B. Morden, Harry Skinner, W.B. Burnett, S.H. Smith, (?) Stibbs, David F. Kanneman, and Grant Gowin. Today, the Odd Fellows are an international fraternal Order, with over 10,000 lodges in 25 countries. They involve themselves in local, national, and global civic and philanthropic efforts such as funding relief projects and loans and bursaries for students, planting trees and environmental aid as part of their Living Legacy campaign, and funding for housing projects to name just a few.
