THIS ALTAR WAS DONATED TO THE HOSPITAL BY MR. AND MRS. R.D. GRUENWALD IN 1965 TO REFURNISH THE NEW 2ND FLOOR CHAPEL. IT WAS DONATED IN MEMORY OF MR. GRUENWALD'S PARENTS. THE ALTAR WAS REMOVED FROM THE CHAPEL AT ST. MICHAEL'S HOSPITAL BEFORE THE HOSPITAL WAS DEMOLISHED IN 1996. FOR MORE HISTORY ON HOSPITAL SEE P19960116001-GA. ALTAR WAS CONSTRUCTED BY LOCAL CARPENTER JAKOB MARTENS. IN A STATEMENT MADE ON 16 FEBRUARY 2007, RICHARD (DICK) GRUENWALD, THE CHAPEL’S FINANCIAL SPONSOR, DOCUMENTED THE FOLLOWING: “IT MUST BE REMEMBERED THAT THIS WAS A CATHOLIC HOSPITAL, PRIVATELY OWNED BY THE SISTERS OF ST. MARTHA. THEREFORE, IT WAS EXPECTED THE CHAPEL WOULD BE INCORPORATED IN THE ORIGINAL BUILDING. IT (THE CHAPEL) WAS DECORATED AND UPDATED FOR GREATER USE BY THE STAFF AND PATIENTS … IN THE EARLY 1970’S. THIS (RENOVATION) WAS PAID FOR AND SPONSORED BY AN ESTATE LEFT TO BE USED FOR CHARITY. THE EXECUTOR OF THE ESTATE (DICK) CHOSE TO USE THE MONEY TO REFURBISH THE CHAPEL. (MY) MOTHER (LUCY) LEFT MONEY FOR CHARITY (DECEASED 1 MAY 1970) AND ST. MICHAEL’S HAD NO MONEY FOR THESE TYPES OF THINGS.” DICK GRUENWALD CLAIMED HIS MOTHER’S ESTATE PAID OUT $5,500 FOR THE CHAPEL. LUCY, HE SAID, “WAS A GREAT FRIEND OF THE SISTERS OF ST MARTHA AND ST. MICHAEL’S HOSPITAL”. DICK SERVED ON THE HOSPITAL’S BOARD IN THE EARLY 70S. *UPDATE* IN 2010, NICOLE HEMBROFF, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF PALLET RACKING. SHE MET WITH JAKOB MARTENS (WHO HAD PURPORTEDLY MADE THE ALTAR) TO DISCUSS THE ALTAR. HE SAID THAT THE ALTAR WAS NOT HIS WORK.

History
BANK IS COMMEMORATIVE OF TWO STATUES THAT WERE ERECTED IN HONOR OF THE FOUNDER OF THE EATON COMPANY, TIMOTHY EATON, BY ITS EMPLOYEES ON THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE COMPANY IN 1919. MUSEUM OBTAINED ITEMS FROM LETHBRIDGE EATON'S STORE IN 1999. DUE TO COMPANY BANKRUPTCY, EATON'S STORES ACROSS CANADA WERE CLOSED, INCLUDING THE LETHBRIDGE LOCATION IN PARK PLACE MALL. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH THE T. EATON COMPANY STORES IN LETHBRIDGE. THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF LETHBRIDGE'S EATON'S STORE WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM GALT ARCHIVES AND LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM THE FALL OF 1988. THE T. EATON COMPANY WAS FOUNDED IN TORONTO IN 1869 BY TIMOTHY EATON. THE FIRST LETHBRIDGE EATON'S 'TECO' STORE WAS OPENED IN 1927 IN THE BASEMENT OF THE DOMINION BLOCK ON THE CORNER OF 4 AVENUE AND SIXTH STREET SOUTH. AFTER A FIRE, THE BUILDING WAS RENOVATED AND COMPLETELY TAKEN OVER BY THE EATON'S STORE, WHICH OPERATED IN THAT LOCATION UNDER PERIODIC RENOVATIONS FROM 1929 UNTIL THE OPENING OF THE PARK PLACE MALL IN 1988, IN WHICH EATON'S WAS AN ANCHOR RETAILER. IN 1989 A PORTION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE ART COLLECTION WAS TEMPORARILY PUT ON DISPLAY IN THE VACANT EATON'S BUILDING, AND PROPOSALS WERE MADE TO MAKE THE INSTALLATION PERMANENT, BUT EVENTUALLY THE PROPERTY WAS SOLD AND DEMOLISHED TO MAKE WAY FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BANK OF MONTREAL BRANCH. IN 1999 THE EATON'S STORE IN PARK PLACE MALL CLOSED JUST PRIOR TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE BANKRUPTCY OF THE LARGER T. EATON COMPANY LIMITED.

THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION WAS COMPILED USING ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. BETTE J. BAILIE (NEE DAY) WAS THE DAUGHTER OF BUD AND INGA (MAIDEN NAME UNKNOWN) DAY. SHE RECEIVED HER PRIMARY EDUCATION IN FORT MACLEOD AND GRADUATED FROM THE GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING IN 1962. ON SEPTEMBER 22, 1962, BETTE WAS MARRIED TO LAWRENCE BAILIE. THE COUPLE LIVED IN CALGARY FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, WHERE BETTE WORKED AT THE CALGARY GENERAL HOSPITAL. THEY THEN MOVED TO STETTLER FOR 10 YEARS BEFORE RETURNING TO LETHBRIDGE. BETTE PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 57 ON JANUARY 13, 1998. *UPDATE* IN 2017, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF BOXED TEXTILE ARTIFACTS, INCLUDING THIS NURSING OUTFIT WORN BY BETTE BAILIE. ON 24 NOVEMBER 2017 PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN INTERVIEW WITH THE DONOR, LAWRENCE BAILIE, WHO WAS MARRIED TO BETTE. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXTRACTED FROM THAT INTERVIEW: LAWRENCE BAILIE EXPLAINS HE DONATED THIS OUTFIT BECAUSE, “MY LATE WIFE HAD SAVED THIS FROM HER DAYS OF TRAINING AT THE LETHBRIDGE GALT HOSPITAL. AND SHE, OH I THINK SHE STARTED IN 1960 AND GRADUATED IN 1962… I THINK FOR YEARS WE HAD IT IN A SUITCASE OR TRUNK JUST ‘CAUSE IT WAS – ACTUALLY HER WHOLE IDEA WAS, I THINK, THAT SHE WANTED TO SHOW HER GRANDDAUGHTER THIS AS PART OF HER LIFE, I GUESS IS WHAT IT WAS ALL ABOUT.” WHEN ASKED ABOUT HOW HIS WIFE FIRST ACQUIRED THE NURSING OUTFIT, BAILIE REPLIED, “THEY DIDN’T START OUT WITH THIS TYPE OF UNIFORM BECAUSE THEY STARTED OUT WITH A DIFFERENT TYPE WHEN THEY WERE IN THEIR FIRST YEAR AND I THINK THEY CALLED THEM ‘PEROGIES,’ AND THEN AFTER THE FIRST YEAR IS WHEN THEY GOT THEIR UNIFORMS AND THEY WORE THEM ALL THE TIME… I WOULD SAY [THIS TYPE OF UNIFORM WAS WORN] FROM THE FIRST YEAR [TO THE] END OF THE SECOND YEAR WHILE THEY WERE WORKING AND THIS SORT OF PUT THEM APART FROM OTHER NURSES IN THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE THEY HAD THIS TYPE OF UNIFORM ON... NOW ONCE THEY GRADUATED THEY DIDN’T HAVE THIS UNIFORM ANYMORE, THEY ACTUALLY HAD WHAT YOU WOULD BUY, LIKE A COMMERCIALLY-MADE NURSE’S DRESS… THEY WERE WHITE AND YOU COULD BUY DIFFERENT DESIGNS OF THEM. THEY HAD TO GO TO A SPECIAL PLACE TO BUY THE NURSE’S UNIFORMS THAT THEY WORE ONCE THEY WERE WORKING.” BAILIE CONTINUED, “AFTER SHE GRADUATED AND WE WERE MARRIED… SHE WORKED IN CALGARY AT THE GENERAL HOSPITAL, AND NURSES WERE NOT ALLOWED TO WEAR THE SAME CLOTHES WHILE THEY WERE NURSING – THEIR STREET CLOTHES – THEY HAD TO HAVE CLEAN CLOTHES IN THE LOCKERS THAT THEY HAD TO PUT ON SO THEY COULDN’T BRING, SUPPOSEDLY, GERMS INTO THE HOSPITAL. SO THEIR SHOES, EVERYTHING HAD TO BE CHANGED ... [SO] SHE HAD TO BRING HER UNIFORMS [TO THE HOSPITAL]. THEY HAD TO BE WASHED AND CLEANED, SO SHE HAD TO WASH, CLEAN THEM, AND TAKE THEM BACK AND FORTH, AND PUT THEM IN HER LOCKER AND WHATEVER.” WHEN ASKED WHY HIS WIFE BECAME A NURSE, BAILIE EXPLAINED, “MY WIFE USED TO ALWAYS SAY, “WELL I DIDN’T HAVE MUCH CHOICE IN THOSE DAYS BECAUSE” SHE SAID, ‘I EITHER HAD TO BE A SCHOOLTEACHER OR NURSE.’ AND SHE SAID, ‘I DIDN’T WANT TO BE A SCHOOL TEACHER.’ AND SHE KNEW THAT, WELL HER MOTHER WAS, MAKE SURE THAT SHE BECAME SOMETHING. SHE HAD TO. LIKE HER MOM SAID, ‘YOU’LL STAY THERE FOREVER. YOU HAVE TO GRADUATE ONE WAY OR THE OTHER, WHATEVER.’ SO SHE DIDN’T HAVE A CHOICE.” THE WAY THAT LAWRENCE AND BETTE MET WAS THROUGH A FUNDRAISING DANCE FOR THE NURSING ALUMNI. BAILIE SHARED THE STORY: “I THINK THE PROCEEDS FROM TWO DANCES A YEAR TO GO TO THEIR ALUMNI OR WHATEVER THEY HAD [THROUGH THE NURSING SCHOOL]. AND SO THEN, THEY HAD THESE DANCES AT THE PAVILION, AT THE HENDERSON LAKE PAVILION, AND SO ONE OF THE DANCES THE GALT SCHOOL WAS PUTTING ON. I MET HER THERE AT ONE OF THE DANCES…I COULD TELL YOU ALL KINDS OF – IT WAS KIND OF CUTE, IN THE SENSE THAT, I ASKED IF I COULD TAKE HER HOME AND SHE SAID, ‘WELL ONLY IF I COULD BRING MY FRIEND.’ AND I SAID, “NO, NOT A PROBLEM.” SO THEN SHE SAID – AND I SAID, “HOW ARE YOU GOING TO GET HOME OTHERWISE?” AND SHE SAID, “WELL WE, WE HAD,” I DON’T KNOW, LET’S SAY, A COUPLE OF DOLLARS IN HER SHOE, SO SHE COULD GET A TAXI BACK TO THIS THING, AND IF, YOU KNOW, SO. AND SHE THOUGHT THAT MAYBE I WAS SAFE ENOUGH TO RIDE HOME WITH SO, AND ANYWAYS I TOOK HER HOME FROM THE DANCE AND THAT’S HOW WE STARTED OUR COURTSHIP OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO SAY FROM THAT TIME. I CALLED HER UP LATER… I LIVED WAY OUT IN SKIFF AND WE HAD A LOCAL PAY DIAL OR PAY PHONE THERE, SO WHEN I USED TO GO IN TO PHONE HER AND ASK HER FOR A DATE WHEN EVERYBODY IN THE STORE WOULD HEAR WHAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT. SO YOU COULDN’T SAY VERY MUCH PERSONAL ‘CAUSE EVERYBODY WOULD HEAR.” BAILIE WENT ON TO SAY, “MY WIFE CONSIDERED HER TRAINING AND LIVING IN RESIDENCE WITH THESE OTHER GIRLS THE BEST TIME OF HER LIFE. SHE HAD SUCH A GOOD TIME WITH THE OTHER GIRLS AND SHE REALLY CHERISHED THAT AND SHE HAD SOME VERY, VERY DEAR FRIENDS. I DON’T THINK MOST PEOPLE DON’T HAVE A CHANCE TO HAVE THAT CLOSE OF FRIENDS, BECAUSE THEY LIVED THERE, SEVEN DAYS A WEEK FOR TWO YEARS AND THEY FOUND A NUMBER OF THEM UP AND DOWN THE HALLS AND THEY DID LITTLE TRICKS WITH EACH OTHER, AND WENT OUT FOR COFFEE WITH EACH OTHER…THEY DID A LOT OF THINGS TOGETHER SO THEY BECAME VERY, VERY GOOD FRIENDS.” BAILIE BROUGHT A SCRAPBOOK TO THE MUSEUM ON THE DAY OF THE INTERVIEW THAT BETTE HAD PUT TOGETHER FROM HER NURSING DAYS, WHICH INCLUDED INFORMATION ABOUT HER GRADUATION. SHE RECEIVED THE “EMILY HICK MEMORIAL AWARD FOR PROFICIENCY IN PEDIATRICS.” BAILIE EXPLAINS THAT WORKING IN PEDIATRICS WAS “HER LIFE. THAT’S WHAT SHE LOVED.” UPON GRADUATION, BETTE MARRIED LAWRENCE AND BEGAN NURSING IN CALGARY – WORKING ON THE PEDIATRIC WARD – WHILE LAWRENCE HAD WORKED FOR A TELEPHONE COMPANY. HE EXPLAINS, “BEING A FARM BOY, WELL I DIDN’T LIKE CALGARY, AND SO I WANTED TO GO TO A SMALLER PLACE, SO AT THAT TIME WE COULD BID OUT, SO I WENT TO STETTLER, SO NATURALLY SHE MOVED WITH ME TO STETTLER AND SHE DIDN’T WANT TO GET A JOB…SHE DIDN’T WANT TO BE A NURSE THEN, ‘CAUSE THE TYPE OF PERSON SHE WAS THAT, AND SHE LOVED THE KIDS AND EVERYTHING, BUT WHEN THERE WAS A COUPLE OF TIMES WHEN SHE WAS IN CALGARY WHERE SHE WOULD BE ON HEAD NURSE OR SOMETHING, AND SOME KIDS WOULD COME IN IN VERY SERIOUS CONDITION. AND SHE HAD TO [DECIDE] A LOT OF SERIOUS THINGS TO SEE WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO WITH THE CHILD. AND THAT REALLY BOTHERED HER… SHE TOOK HER WORK HOME [WITH HER]... SO SHE RETIRED AND RAISED OUR FAMILY.” WHILE BETTE RETIRED FROM NURSING, SHE CONTINUED TO USE HER SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE FROM NURSING SCHOOL THROUGHOUT THE BAILIE’S FAMILY LIFE. BAILIE REMEMBERS, “BEING THAT IN HER TRAINING, THEY LEARNED ALL ABOUT WHAT YOU SHOULD EAT AND WHAT YOU SHOULDN’T EAT AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS OR WHATEVER, SO WE ATE VERY HEALTHY…THE NATURAL THINGS THAT SHE LEARNED WHEN SHE WAS TRAINING TO BE A NURSE. SHE TOOK THEM, SHE KEPT THEM WITH HER AND SHE WAS RAISING HER FAMILY WITH THE STUFF THAT SHE HAD LEARNED, YOU KNOW. AND THEN, NATURALLY, ONE OF OUR KIDS FELL AND HURT HIMSELF OR DID SOMETHING AND SHE’D DO THAT DOCTOR/NURSING THING – ‘CAN YOU MOVE THIS? SO YOU ARM’S NOT BROKEN?’ OR SHE WOULD BANDAGE OR WHATEVER. AND SHE SAID, ‘YOU’LL LIVE.’ YOU KNOW, I REMEMBER STILL. THAT WAS ONE OF HER FAVOURITE THINGS. YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE KIDS WOULD GET HURT OR SOMETHING AND SHE’D SAY, ‘THEY’LL BE OKAY. THEY’LL LIVE.’” THE BAILIE’S SONS ARE NAMED NEIL AND ROBERT (BOB). BETTE PASSED AWAY AFTER A SECOND BATTLE WITH CANCER, BAILIE EXPLAINS, “AS FAR AS CANCER TAKING HER AT A YOUNG AGE WAS – DOESN’T MAKE A LOT OF SENSE TO A LOT OF PEOPLE, I GUESS. BUT SHE WAS A VERY HEALTHY-LIVING PERSON. LIKE SHE NEVER SMOKED, SHE NEVER DRANK, AND IT DIDN’T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE WHEN IT COME TO THE CANCER. YOU KNOW. AND SHE DID LOOK AFTER HERSELF… PRIOR TO HER GETTING, FINDING OUT SHE HAD CANCER THE SECOND TIME, SHE TRAINED WITH A GIRL NEXT DOOR FOR THE IRON MAN.” BAILIE ALSO SAID, “I COULD TALK FOREVER ON HER, ABOUT HER. SHE WAS A GREAT GIRL... SHE HAD A GREAT PERSONALITY. VERY QUIET, SHE WAS QUIET BUT YEAH. BUT AGAIN, LIKE I SAY, I DON’T KNOW. LIKE THIS STUFF WE’VE KEPT, LIKE I’VE GOT THIS STUFF NOW. AND I DON’T KNOW. LIKE I’VE GOT TONS OF STUFF THAT BELONGS TO HER AND I JUST DON’T WANT TO GIVE IT UP. BUT IF I GIVE IT TO MY SON, I DON’T KNOW WHAT HE’LL DO WITH IT. LIKE I HATE TO SEE IT LOST BECAUSE SHE WAS IMPORTANT. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR COPIES OF THE ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION.

"IN 1906 MY DAD [HAROLD ING SR.] LEFT HONG KONG FOR VANCOUVER, HE COULDN'T SPEAK ENGLISH... HE'S GOT TO BE A WAITER, A BUSBOY... AND HE LEARNED ALL THE WAY UP, IN THE MEANTIME PICKING UP ENGLISH... WENT TO WINNIPEG. THIS IS BEFORE ME. BY THEN HE KNEW THE WHOLE SYSTEM OF RESTAURANTING." MYRA AND HAROLD SR. MARRIED AND ADOPTED HAROLD JR. WHEN HE WAS BORN INTO A POOR FAMILY OF ELEVEN IN 1944, IN VANCOUVER. "ME AND MY TWIN SISTER WERE SOLD BECAUSE THERE WERE JUST TOO MANY. SO DAD, MY MOM PICKED ME AND DAD SAID YES THAT'S GOOD... I DON'T KNOW WHERE MY SISTER IS... THERE'S NO WAY OF FINDING OUT." THE ING FAMILY SETTLED IN LETHBRIDGE IN THE LATE 1940S, AND HAROLD SR.

"AT APPROXIMATELY FIVE YEARS OLD [MY FATHER] INTRODUCED ME TO THE NEW MOON CAFE, AND I WAS A BUSBOY AT THE AGE OF FIVE... IN 1951 HE SHOWED ME MY FIRST HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL... BECAUSE HE WAS THE OWNER... HE'D WAKE UP AT FIVE IN THE MORNING TO GO TO THE CAFE, OFF AND ON TO THE GROCERY STORE AND MIGHT BE DONE AT EIGHT AT NIGHT, SUPPER AND IMMEDIATELY TO CHINATOWN [FOR] GAMBLING, PUTTING DOWN MAH JONG."

RAN ING'S GROCERY FOR HIS FATHER, AND IN THE LATE 1960S AND EARLY 70S ALSO WORKED AS A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND A SALESMAN AT SEARS. BOTH HAROLD SR.
