History
THE KONKINS WERE A RUSSIAN-SPEAKING FAMILY FROM THE TOWN OF SHOULDICE, ALBERTA, NEAR CALGARY. THEY AND MANY OTHER RUSSIAN FAMILIES COMPOSED THAT TOWN’S DOUKHOBOR COLONY. IT WAS THERE WILLIAM KONKIN MARRIED ELIZABETH WISHLOW. IN 1928, THEIR DAUGHTER, ELSIE WAS BORN. THEY LATER MOVED TO A FARM IN VAUXHALL, ALBERTA. THE PRECEDING AND FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXTRACTED FROM A TWO-PART INTERVIEW WITH DONOR ELSIE MORRIS, WHICH WAS CONDUCTED BY COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN ON FEBRUARY 17, 2016. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION COMES FROM FAMILY HISTORIES AND TEXTS PROVIDED BY THE DONOR. A FULL HISTORY OF THE KONKIN FAMILY CAN BE FOUND WITH THE RECORD P20160003001. ACCORDING TO A NOTE THAT WAS ATTACHED TO THIS LIGHTWEIGHT BLANKET AT THE TIME OF ACQUISITION THE BLANKET IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN MADE C. 1920S. MORRIS SAYS HER MEMORY OF THE BLANKET DATES AS FAR BACK AS SHE CAN REMEMBER: “RIGHT INTO THE ‘30S, ‘40S AND ‘50S BECAUSE MY MOTHER DID THAT RIGHT UP UNTIL NEAR THE END. I USE THAT EVEN IN LETHBRIDGE WHEN I HAD A GARDEN. [THIS TYPE OF BLANKET] WAS USED FOR TWO PURPOSES. IT WAS EITHER PUT ON THE BED UNDERNEATH THE MATTRESS THE LADIES MADE OUT OF WOOL AND OR ELSE IT WAS USED, A DIFFERENT PIECE OF CLOTH WOULD BE USED FOR FLAILING THINGS. [THE] FLAIL ACTUALLY GOES WITH IT AND THEY BANG ON THE SEEDS AND IT WOULD TAKE THE HULLS OFF… IT’S HAND WOVEN AND IT’S MADE OUT OF POOR QUALITY FLAX… IT’S UNBLEACHED, DEFINITELY… RAW LINEN." THIS SPECIFIC BLANKET WAS USED FOR SEEDS MORRIS RECALLS: “…IT HAD TO BE A WINDY DAY… WE WOULD PICK DRIED PEAS OR BEANS OR WHATEVER BEET SEEDS AND WE WOULD BEAT AWAY AND THEN WE WOULD STAND UP, HOLD IT UP AND THE BREEZE WOULD BLOW THE HULLS OFF AND THE SEEDS WOULD GO STRAIGHT DOWN [ONTO THE BLANKET.” THE SEEDS WOULD THEN BE CARRIED ON THE BLANKET AND THEN PUT INTO A PAIL. OF THE BLANKET’S CLEAN STATE, MORRIS EXPLAINS, “THEY’RE ALWAYS WASHED AFTER THEY’RE FINISHED USING THEM.” WHEN SHE LOOKS AT THIS ARTIFACT, MORRIS SAYS: “I FEEL LIKE I’M OUT ON THE FARM, I SEE FIELDS AND FIELDS OF FLAX, BLUE FLAX. BUT THAT’S NOT WHAT SHE USED IT FOR. SHE DID USE IT IF SHE WANTED A LITTLE BIT OF THE FLAX THEN SHE’D POUND THE FLAX, BUT THAT WASN’T OFTEN. IT WAS MOSTLY BEANS AND PEAS.” IT IS UNKNOWN WHO WOVE THIS BLANKET. PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION, OBITUARIES, PHOTOGRAPHS, AND FAMILY HISTORIES.

THIS HANDMADE BOILER WAS MADE FOR USE IN ASSOCIATION WITH AN UNCAPPING KNIFE BY AN UNKNOWN BEEKEEPER. BEEKEEPERS USED SPECIALIZED, HEATED KNIVES SUCH AS P20060005003 TO MANUALLY REMOVE “CAPPINGS” FROM FRAMES WITHIN A BEE HIVE. CAPPINGS ARE THIN WAX SEALS WHICH THE BEES CREATE TO SEAL THEIR HONEY IN INDIVIDUAL STORAGE CELLS. THE UNCAPPING OPERATION IS THE FIRST STEP IN THE HONEY EXTRACTION PROCESS AND IS CARRIED OUT WITH GREATER EASE WITH A HEATED KNIFE. TODAY, BEEKEEPERS HAVE THE OPTION OF USING ELECTRIC KNIVES AS A SOURCE OF CONTINUOUS HEAT, BUT IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY, A SMALL BOILER AND CONDENSER, SUCH AS THIS ONE WERE USED FOR THE JOB. STEAM FROM THE BOILER WAS CHANNELED THROUGH A TUBE AND INTO THE KNIFE, HEATING THE KNIFE AS IT ENTERED AND EXITED. THIS KNIFE AND BOILER WERE LOCATED BY DONOR EMANUEL COHEN IN A LINE RIDERS’ SHACK DEEP IN THE LITTLE BOW RIVER VALLEY APPROXIMATELY TWENTY MILES EAST OF CARMANGAY. COHEN LOCATED THE ITEMS IN THE SHACK'S CRAWL SPACE VIA A SMALL HIDDEN TRAP DOOR. THE SHACK WAS ORIGINALLY CONSTRUCTED AS PART OF THE HISTORIC “O” CIRCLE RANCH. COHEN’S FATHER HYMAN COHEN BOUGHT SIXTEEN SECTIONS OF THE FORMER RANCH’S GRAZING LAND FROM THE ESTATE OF NELS SOKVITNEY IN 1941/42. TODAY, THE SITE OF THE SHACK IS UNDERWATER, LOCATED AT THE FOOT OF AN IRRIGATION DAM EAST OF LITTLE BOW PROVINCIAL PARK. OVER THE YEARS, COHEN TREATED THE OBJECTS AS THOUGH THEY WERE ASSOCIATED WITH AN ILLEGAL BOOTLEGGING/ MOONSHINE RELEVANCE, “SQUIRRELLING THE STILL AWAY SO IT WOULD NOT BE SEEN BY OTHER FOLKS”.

OWNED AND DONATED BY BARNEY GWATKIN. WORN BY CHARLIE KING WHEN HE WAS KILLED AT FORT MACLEOD STAMPEDE IN 1924. ***** ON 20 MAY 2010, COLLECTIONS TECH KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED RETURNED LETHBRIDGE RESIDENT ART ATKINSON (B. 1940) WITH REGARDS TO HIS PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF A PAIR OF BOOTS (P19738111000) DONATED BY BARNEY GWATKIN IN 1973. IN 1970, ATKINSON – A NATIVE OF STAR CITY SASKATCHEWAN, RELOCATED TO LETHBRIDGE WITH HIS WIFE FLORENCE JEAN ATKINSON, NEE BROUGHTON. JEANS MOTHER, CATHERINE LOUISE BROUGHTON, B1903, NEE MACDONALD , [GRANDDAUGHTER OF JOSEPH (TIN CUP) DUBRAY AND LOUISE KIRTNESS, WAS A COUSIN WITH BARNEY GWATKIN’S WIFE, EMILY GWATKIN, NEE BOUCHER. EMILY WAS GRANDDAUGHTER OF JOSEPH (TIN CUP), DUBRAY AND LOUISE KIRTNESS. EMILY AND CATHERINE WERE COUSINS WITH SAM STEELE’S GRANDDAUGHTER, EVA HOYT OF MONTANA USA. THE THREE COUSINS SPENT TIME TOGETHER ON THE OCCASIONS OF CATHERINE VISITING LETHBRIDGE FROM STAR CITY, SASKATCHEWAN AND CONTACTING EVA WHO TRAVELED FROM MONTANA. THE ATKINSONS CONSIDERED EMILY AND BARNEY TO BE THEIR ONLY FAMILY IN LETHBRIDGE AND CONSEQUENTLY SPENT SIGNIFICANT TIME FROM 1970 -1983 IN THEIR HOME, ENJOYED MANY DINNERS IN ADDITION TO ART ACCOMPANYING BARNEY OUT TO HIS RANCH IN ORDER TO LOOK AT CATTLE AND SURVEY RATTLESNAKE NESTS ETC.. ONE SUCH OCCASION, FOR EXAMPLE, BARNEY INFORMED ART ABOUT THE KAINAI’S BURIAL OF RESERVE MEMBERS ON HIS LAND ON ACCOUNT THE MEMBERS HAD DIED OF DISEASE THAT THEY DID NOT KNOW AND DIDN’T WANT THEM BURIED ON THE RESERVE. THE BOOT STORY WAS SHARED BY BARNEY WITH ART ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS. ACCORDING TO ART, THE “NEW” COWBOY BOOTS, POINTED-OUT VISUALLY TO HIM, WERE, ACCORDING TO BARNEY, LENT OUT DURING THE MACLEOD RODEO IN 1924 AND A COWBOY WAS KILLED WEARING THEM. ART RECALLED ASKING THE QUESTION, “WHY WAS HE WEARING YOUR BOOTS?” TO WHICH BARNEY REPLIED, “THAT’S WHAT WE USED TO DO … BEHIND THE CHUTE WE WOULD CHANGE OUR CLOTHES [GIVING THEM TO THE RODEO COWBOY] IN ORDER THAT THE CONTESTANT WOULD LOOK GOOD”. ATKINSON ADDITIONALLY COMMENTED, “BARNEY USED TO SAY “COWBOY PRIDE” A LOT. IN THIS CASE, COWBOY PRIDE LED THEM [BARNEY] TO BORROW THEIR BEST AVAILABLE CLOTHES SO THE GUY IN THE RING LOOKED GOOD.” THE BOOTS IN QUESTION WERE SHOWN TO ATKINSON IN THE GWATKIN HOME. THEY WERE TEMPORARILY LENT TO THE KILLED CONTESTANT AND BARNEY, STATED ATKINSON, MANAGED TO GET THEM BACK AFTER THE ACCIDENT. ON 16 JULY, 2010, MACLEAN INVITED BARNEY GWATKIN’S SON RICHARD TO THE GALT TO SEE IF HE HAD ANYTHING ELSE TO ADD TO THE INFORMATION PROVIDED BY ATKINSON. AS FAR AS RICHARD COULD RECALL, THE BOOTS WERE ORIGINALLY BARNEY’S, RETURNED TO HIM AFTER CHARLIE KING WAS FATALLY INJURED. RICHARD ADDITIONALLY MENTIONED THAT HIS SISTER LORNA’S MEMORY MAY BE BETTER THAN HIS OWN. THE CONTENT ABOVE WAS APPROVED BY ATKINSON PER ITS ACCURACY. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON KING’S DEATH, PLEASE SEE NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS ATTACHED TO THE DONATION’S PERMANENT FILE.

JUDY’S MOTHER WAS THE SISTER OF LOWELL’S WIFE ELINOR, AND SHE SPENT MUCH OF HER CHILDHOOD LIVING WITH THEM AND ROME MEISSER, DUE TO HER MOTHER BEING UNWELL. IN HER LATER ADULT LIFE, JUDY TOOK CARE OF “UNC” ROME AT HIS WATERTON RESIDENCE, AND BECAUSE ROME AND HIS BROTHER LOWELL DID NOT HAVE ANY LIVING DIRECT DESCENDANTS, JUDY WAS LEFT THE FAMILY BELONGINGS WHEN ROME DIED IN 2004. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT THIS ARTIFACT WAS EXTRACTED FROM AN INTERVIEW CONDUCTED WITH THE DONOR BY COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN ON NOVEMBER 14, 2013, AS WELL AS FROM A DOCUMENT WRITTEN BY HER AT THE TIME OF THE DONATION. WRIGHT SAID: “THIS THERMOS BOTTLE WENT OUT TO THE FIELD WHEN ROME WENT TO SEED OR HARVEST AND I RMEMBER THE MEALS THAT THE COOK TOOK OUT TO THE MEN SO THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE TO MISS MORE THAN A HALF HOUR OF HARVESTING. THOSE WERE THE BEST MEALS IN THE WORLD… WE WOULD GO OUT TO CHECK THE CROPS AND HE’D TAKE THE THERMOS… I CAN PICTURE HIM GOING INTO THE KITCHEN… AND HAVING IT FILLED WITH COFFEE BEFORE HE WOULD GO DO ANYTHING… [THE BOTTLE] WENT ALONG FOR ALL DAY FISHING TRIPS AND ON HUNTING EXCURSIONS. IT PROBABLY WENT ON THE LONG ROAD TO ARIZONA EVERY WINTER.” THE FOLLOWING BRIEF FAMILY HISTORY WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM ROME MEISSER’S MANUSCRIPT ‘THE MEISSER’S AND OTHER RAMBLINGS’ AND DONATIONS OF FAMILY PAPERS MADE BY WRIGHT TO THE GALT ARCHIVES. THE MEISSER FAMILY PATRIARCH, MICHAEL MEISSER, WAS BORN IN SWITZERLAND IN 1830 AND IMMIGRATED TO ALMA, WISCONSIN IN 1846. HIS SON, JOHN LUTZI MEISSER MARRIED MARIE KINDSCHI ON APRIL 30, 1898 AND THEY MOVED TO WARNER, ALBERTA TO FARM IN 1910, LOOKING FOR A DRIER CLIMATE FOR MARIE, WHO SUFFERED FROM TUBERCULOSIS. THE COUPLE HAD FIVE CHILDREN: ORMA, LOWELL, JOHN (WHO DIED AT AGE TWO OF PNEUMONIA), ROME, AND MARIE. IN 1912, MOTHER MARIE DIED IN A TUBERCULOSIS CLINIC IN SALT LAKE CITY, AND FIVE YEARS LATER FATHER JOHN DIED FROM HEAD TRAUMA SUSTAINED IN A GRAIN ELEVATOR ACCIDENT. ONE OF THE CHILDREN’S PATERNAL AUNTS, FRENA, CAME TO WARNER TO HELP THEM WITH SCHOOLING AND RUNNING THE FARM. IN 1920, ORMA MARRIED LEE TENNEY AND IN 1926 LOWELL MARRIED ELINOR TENNEY, AND THE TWO COUPLES LOOKED AFTER THE TWO YOUNGER SIBLINGS UNTIL ORMA AND LEE MOVED TO CALIFORNIA IN 1931. THE YOUNGEST SISTER, MARIE, LATER JOINED THEM WITH HER SON JIM. LOWELL AND ROME FARMED TOGETHER FROM THE SEASON FOLLOWING THEIR FATHER’S DEATH (WHEN THEY WERE 17 AND 13 YEARS OLD, RESPECTIVELY) UNTIL 1945 WHEN THEIR LAND WAS DIVIDED FOR TAX BENEFIT. ROME NEVER MARRIED, AND IN 1928 HAD A SHORT STINT IN PILOT’S TRAINING BEFORE RETURNING TO FARMING PERMANENTLY. LOWELL AND ELINOR’S SON JERALD WAS BORN IN 1929. BY 1957 THE MEISSERS RETIRED FROM FARMING AND LEASED OUT THEIR LAND, AND IN 1958 THE FAMILY BOUGHT A CABIN IN WATERTON PARK, WHERE THEY SPENT ALL FOLLOWING SUMMERS. LOWELL AND ELINOR’S SON JERALD SPLIT HIS TIME BETWEEN FARMING IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA AND VARIOUS PROJECTS IN THE UNITED STATES. HE ENROLLED IN THE CATHOLIC SEMINARY IN SPOKANE, WASHINGTON, BUT PASSED AWAY IN 1990 BEFORE HE COULD BE ORDAINED. LOWELL DIED IN 1988, ELINOR FOLLOWED IN 1992, AND ROME PASSED AWAY IN 2004. THE FOLLOWING REMEMBRANCES OF ROME ‘UNC’ MEISSER WERE EXCERPTED FROM THE NOVEMBER 14, 2013 INTERVIEW. WRIGHT SAID: “I LIVED WITH THEM AND WENT OUT TO THE FARM ALL SUMMER LONG EVERY YEAR FROM THE TIME I WAS FIVE OR SIX YEARS OLD… I JUST HONESTLY THINK THAT I AM WHO I AM TODAY BECAUSE OF MY UNCLE ROME. MY DAD WAS A STAUNCH OLD ENGLISHMAN AND HE COULDN’T RELATE TO ME. HE WAS 45 YEARS OLD WHEN I WAS BORN BUT HE COULDN’T RELATE TO ME. SO, MY UNCLE COULD… HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MARRIED WITH AT LEAST A DOZEN CHILDREN. IN HIS EARLY NINETIES, WHEN I FIRST GOT THERE [TO WATERTON] WE’D GO GROCERY SHOPPING. I’D HAVE TO WAIT WHILE HE STOPPED AND CHATTED WITH ALL THE CHILDREN HE’D COME ACROSS. HE SHOULD HAVE HAD LOTS OF KIDS. HE JUST LOVED KIDS AND I WAS A LITTLE KID… I WAS THERE FROM PRACTICALLY BIRTH AND LIVED MONTHS AT A TIME WITH HIM… HE COULD AFFORD TO LOOK AFTER THE COMMUNITY AS WELL… HE GAVE GENEROUSLY TO [COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS]. HE GAVE TO THE MILK RIVER HOSPITAL. HE DONATED $200,000 FOR THE HOCKEY GIRLS’ RESIDENCE. THEY HAD NO MONEY AND THAT’S WHY WE NOW HAVE A HOCKEY GIRLS’ RESIDENCE THAT HAS A HUGE KITCHEN AND HOUSES UP TO 25 GIRLS, AND KEEPS OUR WARNER SCHOOL OPEN. SO THAT IS A VERY BIG GIFT, HIS DONATIONS. THEY ALSO STARTED A MEISSER SCHOLARSHIP IN 1967 AND TWO WEEKS AGO I WENT OUT AND GAVE THE TROPHY AND THE MONEY TO THE LAST GIRL THAT WON IT. AND IT WILL GO ON INDEFINITELY AS LONG AS THERE’S A SCHOOL…HE WAS VERY SUPPORTIVE OF CHILDREN AND EDUCATION. THE SCHOLARSHIP, THE HOCKEY GIRLS, KEEPING THE WARNER SCHOOL OPEN - BIG FOCUS FOR HIM – WAS EDUCATION AND CHILDREN… HE WAS ONE OF THOSE KIND OF PRACTICALLY ANONYMOUS DONORS IN THE PAST. HOWEVER, AS HE GOT A LITTLE OLDER, I THINK HE ENJOYED THE ATTENTION. THEY MADE A BIG DEAL ABOUT THE HOCKEY SCHOOL. THE RESIDENCE HAS GOT, HUGE, IT HAS HIS NAME ON IT BUT I DON’T THINK HE SAW THAT. AND THEY HAD HIM RIDE IN THE PARADE ONE YEAR, THE COMMUNITY RECOGNIZED HIM AS MUCH AS HE’D LET THEM RECOGNIZE HIM.” SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR A FULL TRANSCIPT OF THE INTERVIEW, WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION ON THE MEISSER FAMILY BY JUDY WRIGHT AND ROME MEISSER, OBITUARIES AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF FAMILY MEMBERS, AND FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT EACH ARTIFACT COMPRISING THE DONATION.

DONOR FOUND BOX IN HER HOME WHILE SPRING CLEANING. *UPDATE* IN 2018 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN ARTIFACT SURVEY, INCLUDING A CURLER DONATED BY BETTY ANDERSON. ARCHIVAL RESEARCH FOUND THAT THE DONOR’S FULL NAME WAS ELIZABETH VIVIAN “BETTY” ANDERSON (NEE ROBINSON) (1920-2001). ATTEMPTS MADE TO LOCATE HER NEXT-OF-KIN WERE UNSUCCESSFUL. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION HAS BEEN COMPILED USING ARCHIVAL SOURCES. AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE DECEMBER 29, 1996 EDITION OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD STATED THAT ANDERSON WAS BORN ON SEPTEMBER 17, 1920 “THREE KILOMETRES NORTH OF ETZIKOM, IN A HOUSE MADE MAINLY OF SOD.” FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE FAMILY’S EARLY HOUSE THERE, PLEASE SEE ARTICLE IN THE PERMANENT FILE. ANDERSON WAS BORN TO BILL ROBINSON AND VERA WATSON. HER FATHER EMIGRATED FROM IRELAND TO ONTARIO, AND BY 1908 HE MOVED TO NANTON. IN 1909 OR 1910, ROBINSON MOVED TO ETZIKOM IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA. BY THE TIME BETTY ANDERSON REACHED SCHOOL AGE, THE FAMILY RELOCATED TO THE MCNALLY AREA, JUST SOUTH OF LETHBRIDGE. SHE ATTENDED SCHOOLS IN THE AREA UNTIL 1934, WHEN SHE WAS IN GRADE 11 BEFORE MOVING TO LETHBRIDGE COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE FOR GRADE 12. IN ORDER TO ATTEND SCHOOL IN THE CITY, SHE HAD TO BOARD WITH A LOCAL ORGANIST NAMED RHYDDID WILLIAMS. FOLLOWING HIGH SCHOOL, ANDERSON MOVED TO CALGARY TO ATTEND MOUNT ROYAL COLLEGE FOR TWO YEARS AND RECEIVED HER TEACHING CERTIFICATE. SHE FURTHERED HER EDUCATION AT CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL (LATER SAIT) AND RECEIVED HER BACHELOR OF EDUCATION FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE. ACCORDING TO AN ADDITIONAL ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, ANDERSON’S TEACHING “CAREER SPANNED FROM THE ERA OF ONE-ROOM SCHOOLS TO A SEMESTER STINT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE.” IN THE ARTICLE, ANDERSON STATED, “MY FIRST JOB WAS AT GOLD RIDGE SCHOOL [IN 1939], OUT NORTH-WEST OF TURIN. THERE WERE 16 KIDS.” IN 1941, BETTY ANDERSON MARRIED GLENN ANDERSON (1922-1995). THE COUPLE LIVED ON A RANCH IN THE PORCUPINE HILLS AND HAD EIGHT CHILDREN – THREE DAUGHTERS, E. JOYCE JANTZ, DOROTHY JOAN ANDERSON, AND P. ELAINE ANDERSON; AND FIVE SONS, RICHARD G., DOUGLAS K., GREGORY B., JAMES D., AND RONALD D. THE HERALD ARTICLE STATES ANDERSON WAS A VOLUNTEER AT THE SIR ALEXANDER GALT MUSEUM AND ARCHIVES FOLLOWING HER TEACHING CAREER. BETTY ANDERSON PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 80 ON AUGUST 26, 2001. SHE IS BURIED AT THE MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY IN LETHBRIDGE. PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING FULL COPIES OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES.
