NORTHERN PLAINS. BELIEVED COLLECTED FROM SITE AT C.P.R. TRESTLE, LETHBRIDGE. *UPDATE* IN 2018 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN ARTIFACT SURVEY, WHICH INCLUDED ARTIFACTS FROM THE ESTHER DOROTHY GROSE DONATION. [NOTE: INITIAL DOCUMENTATION LISTS THE DONOR AS MRS. H. GROSE. ARCHIVAL RESEARCH FOUND THE DONOR’S NAME TO BE ESTHER DOROTHY GROSE, WIFE OF HARRY JAMES GROSE. THE RECORD HAS BEEN AMENDED TO REFLECT THE DONOR’S FULL NAME.] PUNDYK SPOKE WITH THE DONOR’S SON, LEONARD GROSE, ABOUT THE DONATION OVER THE PHONE ON DECEMBER 10, 2018. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION COMES FROM THAT CONVERSATION: GROSE BELIEVES THE PROJECTILE POINTS AND OTHER ARCHAEOLOGICAL ARTIFACTS LIKELY CAME FROM THE FARM IN THE ELKWATER LAKE AREA. GROSE RECALLS STORIES OF FINDING ARROWHEADS IN HIS GRANDFATHER’S FIELDS. HE EXPLAINS HIS MOTHER KEPT SEVERAL OF THE FINDINGS SHE ACCUMULATED WHILE ON THE FARM. HIS MOTHER WAS BORN ESTHER DOROTHY SPONHOLZ IN MEDICINE HAT, ALBERTA. THE FAMILY WOULD LATER SETTLE ON A FARM THREE MILES NORTH OF ELKWATER LAKE, ALBERTA, ACCORDING TO LEONARD GROSE. SHE MET HER HUSBAND, HARRY JAMES GROSE IN CALGARY, WHERE THEY WERE BOTH ATTENDING THE CALGARY PROPHETIC BIBLE INSTITUTE. GROSE ADDED THAT HIS FATHER WAS BORN IN NORTH DAKOTA. THE COUPLE WAS MARRIED IN 1937 AND MOVED TO MEDICINE HAT IN 1938. THE FAMILY STAYED THERE UNTIL 1952. HARRY GROSE WAS IN THE FARM IMPLEMENT BUSINESS, WHICH THEN BROUGHT THE FAMILY TO LETHBRIDGE, WHERE LEONARD WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL. THE HENDERSON’S DIRECTORY FOR LETHBRIDGE IN 1953 LISTS HARRY GROSE AS THE PARTS MANAGER FOR NORRIE & FAWETT LTD. THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD OBITUARY PUBLISHED FOR ESTHER GROSE ON JANUARY 13, 1996 STATES THAT THE FAMILY RELOCATED TO THE CITY IN 1949. HARRY AND ESTHER STAYED IN THE CITY UNTIL HARRY’S PASSING ON MAY 12, 1990 AT THE AGE OF 78 YEARS. ESTHER THEN RELOCATED TO CALGARY, WHERE SHE PASSED AWAY ON JANUARY 10, 1996 AT THE AGE OF 78 YEARS. REGARDING THE INITIAL DOCUMENTATION OF MANY OF THE ARTIFACTS BEING FOUND FROM THE C.P.R. TRESTLE SITE IN LETHBRIDGE, GROSE EXPLAINED THAT HIS PARENTS ENJOYED TO EXPLORE TOGETHER. HE STATED THEIR WALKS IN THE AREA WOULD HAVE TAKEN PLACE AFTER HE LEFT HOME, BUT HE WAS AWARE THAT HIS FATHER ESPECIALLY LIKED TO GO OUT AND LOOK AT CROPS. HIS MOTHER EXPLORED BECAUSE OF HER INTEREST IN LETHBRIDGE HISTORY. PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE P19672916000 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, INCLUDING COPIES OF THE ARCHIVAL REFERENCES USED FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND HENDERSON DIRECTORY.

History
BOX WAS CONTAINER FOR PROJECTILE POINTS COLLECTED BY DONOR'S FATHER, REV. G.G NAKAYAMA. HE AND HIS FAMILY MOVED TO COALDALE IN 1945 AFTER BEING RELOCATED FROM VANCOUVER IN 1942 TO SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA. AT COALDALE HE FOUNDED THE ANGLICAN CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION WHERE HE WAS RECTOR FROM 1945 TO 1970. FROM AUGUST 29 TO 31, 2011 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED THE DONOR, JOY KOGAWA, ABOUT HER MEMORIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPECIFIC OBJECTS THAT SHE DONATED IN 1997. OF THIS ARTIFACT, KOGAWA SAID: “I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WHERE THE BOX CAME FROM, BUT THESE ARE ARROWHEADS, AND I THINK THAT THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO DAD, BY WHOM I DO NOT KNOW… HE WAS ALWAYS INTERESTED IN HISTORICAL THINGS OF ANY KIND [AND] HE KEPT THINGS THAT WERE GIVEN TO HIM, HE WOULD HAVE NEVER THROWN THEM OUT…” SEE RECORD P19970041001 FOR EXPANDED BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION AND PERMANENT FILE FOR FURTHER HISTORY.
