DONOR DOUG PATCHING CAME INTO POSSESSION OF ASTROGRAPH AT THE TIME OF HIS FATHER DEL PATCHING’S PASSING ON FEBRUARY 4, 2004. THE ASTROGRAPH WAS LOCATED IN HIS FATHER’S HOME, BUT DONOR DOUG PATCHING RECALLS THE OBJECT, “MOVING AROUND WITH US.” DOUG PATCHING’S EARLIEST RECOLLECTION OF THE ASTROGRAPH’S EXISTENCE WAS WHILE HIS FATHER WAS, “WORKING AT THE LETHBRIDGE AIRPORT, HELPING TO DISMANTLE THE CF-100S. HE WOULD GO OUT DURING THE WINTER AND BRING HOME BUCKETS OF BOLTS.” DEL PATCHING LIVED ON A FARM SOUTH-EAST OF TOWN ON THE NORTH-EAST QUARTER “720 WEST OF THE 4TH NEAR WILSON SIDING.” AT THE TIME OF DONATION, DOUG PATCHING RELATED THAT, “AS A KID, IT WAS KINDA NEAT TO SEE STARS PROJECTED AND EVER SINCE THAT TIME I BOUGHT STAR MAPS. I WAS INSPIRED BY THIS THING.” THE ASTROGRAPH GIVES LONGITUDE, LATITUDE, STAR NAMES AND LOCATION. DOUG PATCHING SAID, “I THINK IT WAS MEMORABILIA, I’VE GOT HIS LOG BOOK WHEN HE WAS IN THE RCAF.” DEL PATCHING SERVED IN 1941/42 TO 1945 IN HALIFAX AS A NAVIGATOR. THE ASTROGRAPH’S LAST KNOWN USE WAS IN THE 1970S/80S AND, “MAY HAVE MADE IT TO WILSON JR. HIGH AS A TEACHER. HE HAD THE FIRST HAND-HELD CALCULATOR OF ANYONE IN SCHOOL.” HE TAUGHT SCIENCE BETWEEN 1970 AND 1980. ACCORDING TO HIS OBITUARY IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, “DEL PATCHING WAS BORN IN ETZIKOM ALBERTA IN 1918. HE GRADUATED FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA WITH A B.SC (AGRICULTURE) IN 1939. FROM 1942 TO 1945 HE SERVED IN THE R.C.A.F. AS A NAVIGATOR WITH THE RANK OF FLIGHT SERGEANT, MAINLY FLYING NIGHTTIME IN HALIFAX BOMBING MISSIONS TO WESTERN EUROPE. FOLLOWING DISCHARGE, DEL PATCHING WORKED AT THE LETHBRIDGE AGRICULTURAL STATION IN 1945. IN 1946 HE MOVED TO THE FAMILY FARM NEAR WILSON SIDING WHERE HE FARMED FOR 26 YEARS. IN 1970, PATCHING COMPLETED A DEGREE IN EDUCATION AND LEFT FARMING TO TAKE UP A CAREER AS A TEACHER AT WILSON JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL IN LETHBRIDGE UNTIL 1980 WHEN HE RETIRED. DEL PATCHING PASSED AWAY ON FEBRUARY 5, 2004 “ FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE.

AT THE TIME OF DONATION, GALT STAFF CONDUCTED AN INTERVIEW WITH DONOR IRMA DOGTEROM. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WAS EXTRACTED FROM A LONGER TRANSCRIPTION. WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE BADGE, DOGTEROM SAID, “THAT’S [MY DAUGHTER] NANCY’S. SEE ON THE BACK, NANCY; HER NAME IS THERE, AND IT WAS IN ’64. [NANCY IS] OUR DAUGHTER, THE YOUNGEST ONE. SO THIS MUST HAVE BEEN THE YEAR BEFORE SHE STARTED SCHOOL. SHE WOULD HAVE STARTED IN LATE ’64, BECAUSE THIS WAS THE SPRING OF ‘64. AUNT DOROTHY’S PLAYHOUSE WAS WHAT THEY CALLED IT AND IT WAS WELL KNOWN ALL OVER CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES, AND I HAVE GIVEN THEM A PICTURE OF THIS CLASS TO THE ARCHIVES. I PROBABLY WROTE THE STORY ABOUT IT AT THAT TIME. NANCY HAD A PROBLEM WITH LEARNING. SOME COUNSELOR OR SOMETHING SUGGESTED THAT, INSTEAD OF SENDING HER TO GRADE 1, WHEN SHE WAS SIX, SEND HER TO AUNT DOROTHY’S PLAYHOUSE, AND IT DID MAKE A WONDERFUL DIFFERENCE TO HER. THAT WAS THE YEAR AUNT DOROTHY WASN’T THERE VERY MUCH, BECAUSE HER DAUGHTER HAD BEEN INJURED IN A CAR – TRUCK ACCIDENT DOWN IN EASTERN CANADA.” WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF NANCY HAVING A LEARNING DISABILITY, DOGTEROM RESPONDED BY SAYING, “WE HAD VARIOUS DEFINITIONS OF WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS, AND I HAVE SEEN OTHER KIDS SINCE THEN WITH MORE OR LESS SIMILAR PROBLEMS, AND IF THEIR PARENTS HANDLED THEM IN CERTAIN WAYS, THEY COULD COME A LONG WAY, BUT I GUESS I WASN’T THAT SMART.” EXPLAINING WHO AUNT DOROTHY’S PLAYHOUSE IS NAMED AFTER, DOGTEROM REPLIED, “DOROTHY GENTLEMAN - THERE IS A STREET NAMED FOR HER IN LEGACY RIDGE. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HER BACKGROUND WAS BUT AUNT DOROTHY’S PLAYHOUSE WAS JUST IN HER HOUSE, AND SHE OBVIOUSLY COULD HANDLE CHILDREN VERY WELL, BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T SPANK OR SLAP, BUT CHILDREN ENJOYED GOING THERE BUT THEY LEARNED THINGS. ONE THING NANCY DIDN’T LIKE WAS A SQUEAKY TOY. IF THERE WAS A SQUEAKY TOY ON THE FLOOR OVER THERE AND SHE WAS IN THE DOORWAY AND I WAS SITTING HERE, SHE WOULDN’T COME. SHE WOULDN’T PASS IT. AUNT DOROTHY HAD HER PICKING THOSE SQUEAKY TOYS UP AND GIVING THEM TO HER, AND THEN THE OTHER KIDS COULDN’T HAVE THEM AND SQUEAK THEM. I MEAN I HAD NO IDEA WHO SHE WAS AT ALL, BUT SHE DID DO A VERY GOOD JOB. IT WAS A BIG TWO STORY HOUSE AND SHE DID NOT LIKE ANYBODY TO BE LATE PICKING UP THEIR CHILDREN. YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE THERE AT SUCH AND SUCH A TIME. YOU BETTER BE THERE, OR THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW, SHE WOULD REFUSE TO TAKE THE CHILD. AND I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT BECAUSE, IF SHE HAS A SCHEDULE TO KEEP, SHE CAN’T BE JUMPING AROUND FOR EVERY INDIVIDUAL PARENT, AND YOU COULD TALK TO HER AND SET UP WHEN WAS THE BEST TIME FOR YOU, BEFORE YOU EVER LEFT THEM THERE, SO THEN YOU WERE TIED INTO THAT TIME SLOT. ACTUALLY SHE WORE THIS AND SHE HAD A UNIFORM AND ALL THE LITTLE GIRLS HAD UNIFORMS AND SHE GAVE YOU THE UNIFORM FOR YOU TO SEW, AND IT WAS ALREADY CUT OUT, AND YOU WERE TOLD HOW FAR OFF THE GROUND TO HEM IT, [THE EMBROIDERY ON THE BADGE] WAS ALL DONE BY AUNT DOROTHY’S PLAYHOUSE. I CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT I DID WITH UNIFORM, WHETHER OR NOT I GAVE IT TO ANOTHER CHILD, OR WHETHER IT CAME TO THE MUSEUM. PROBABLY NOT. IT WAS A LITTLE CORDUROY ONE, BLUE CORDUROY SO. [NANCY WAS THERE] JUST ONE [YEAR,] BUT WHEN SHE CAME OUT OF THAT AUNT DOROTHY’S PLAYHOUSE SHE WENT TO GRADE ONE THE NEXT YEAR AND MANAGED QUITE WELL. I TELL YOU IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT THING IN NANCY’S LIFE AND THAT MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD WHEN SHE HAD THAT LADY AS A TEACHER, BECAUSE, AS I SAY, SHE WOULD NOT COME PAST A SQUEAKY TOY TO COME TO ME, BUT, BY THE TIME AUNT DOROTHY GOT THROUGH WITH HER, SHE WOULD LET HER GO UPSTAIRS FIRST, AND PICK UP ANY SQUEAKY TOYS AND BRING THEM TO HER, AND SHE WOULD PUT THEM AWAY IN A DRAWER. THAT’S A KID THAT WOULDN’T PASS ONE, PICKING THEM ALL UP." THE FOLLOWING IS FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ISSUE PUBLISHED ON OCTOBER 3, 1980."DOROTHY GENTLEMAN, WHO TO MANY GENERATIONS OF LETHBRIDGE CHILDREN WAS KNOWN SIMPLY AS AUNT DOROTHY, DIED WEDNESDAY AT THE AGE OF 75. IN 1948, GENTLEMAN OPENED AUNT DOROTHY'S PLAYHOUSE, A KINDERGARTEN IN HER HOME AT 635 8TH ST. S. AFTER GAINING AN INTERNATIONAL REPUTATION, THE PLAYHOUSE WAS CLOSED IN 1973, WHEN SHE RETIRED. IN 1961, GENTLEMAN WAS NAMED CANADA'S MOTHER OF THE YEAR. SHE WAS ALSO AN OBSERVER-CONSULTANT WITH THE UNITED STATES HEADSTART MOVEMENT IN ITS FORMATIVE YEARS. ORIGINALLY FROM ABERDEEN, SCOTLAND, SHE MOVED TO ALIX WITH HER PARENTS IN 1922. IN 1928, SHE MARRIED WILLIAM DONALD GENTLEMAN. SHE AND HER HUSBAND CAME TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1943."

BELONGED TO DONOR'S SON, DAVE, WHO WAS BORN IN 1954 AND ATTENDED LCC, THE FIRST YEAR THE COLLEGE OPENED. PURPOSE UNKNOWN. *** INFORMATION BELOW PROVIDED BY DONOR AT THE REQUEST OF THE GALT IN 2010. “OUR SON ENROLLED IN THE LETHBRIDGE COMMUNITY COLLEGE AFTER COMPLETING HIGH SCHOOL WITH THE INTENTION OF FOLLOWING A FORESTRY CAREER. HE FOUND OUT THE MOUNTAINS WERE A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT, BUT HE DIDN'T WANT TO LIVE THERE. THE BEANIE WAS A REQUIREMENT FOR NEW STUDENTS AT THAT TIME.” *** UPDATE: IN 2014, THIS BEANIE WAS SELECTED BY LUCELLE PRINDLE FOR THE 'TREASURES & CURIOUSITIES' EXHIBIT. PRINDLE FOUND PHOTOGRAPHS OF LCC STUDENTS WEARING SIMILAR BEANIES DURING "FROSH WEEK" IN THE 1968/69 LETHBRIDGE JUNIOR COLLEGE YEARBOOK. PRINDLE ALSO PROVIDED A PHOTOCOPIED PAGE FROM A BOOK DETAILING THE HISTORY OF LETHBRIDGE COLLEGE, WHICH OUTLINED THE JUNE 1969 MOTION TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE SCHOOL FROM "LETHBRIDGE JUNIOR COLLEGE" TO "LETHBRIDGE COMMUNITY COLLEGE". BECAUSE THIS BEANIE BEARS THE LETTERS "L.C.C.", PRINDLE MAINTAINS THAT IT MUST BE DATED POST-1969.

History
ACCORDING TO THE DONOR PAT SASSA (OKUTAKE) AT THE TIME OF DONATION, THIS BELT WAS PART OF THE GRADUATION UNIFORM. AT GRADUATION SHE RECEIVED HER GRADUATION PIN, GRADUATION CERTIFICATE, FLORENCE NIGHTENGALE PLEDGE AND BOUQUET OF RED ROSES AT HER GRADUATION CEREMONY. SHE GRADUATED ON OCTOBER 14, 1959. OF HER GRADUATION, SASSA SAID, "THE GRADUATION UNIFORMS WERE CAREFULLY STARCHED AND IRONED BY THE LAUNDRY STAFF. WE WERE DRIVEN BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE BUS SO WE COULD ALL STAND AND NOT GET OUR UNIFORMS WRINKLED ON OUR WAY TO SOUTHMINISTER UNITED CHURCH WHERE THE CEREMONY WOULD TAKE PLACE... IT WAS SUCH A HAPPY AND EMOTIONAL OCCASION. INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP PHOTOS WERE TAKEN BY PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER, MR. JOHN DEJOURDAN. WE LATER RETURNED TO THE NURSES' RESIDENCE WHERE TEA WAS SERVED FOR OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS." SASSA ALSO SAID, "DURING THE MORNING OF GRADUATION, SIX OF US CLASSMATES RECEIVED AWARDS IN THE SPECIALTY AREAS OF MEDICAL, SURGICAL, PEDIATRIC, OBSTETRIC, OPERATING ROOM AND GENERAL PROFICIENCY. I WAS THE HAPPY RECIPIENT OF THE OPERATING ROOM AWARD. IT SEEMS COINCIDENTAL THAT FOUR OF THE SIX RECIPIENTS CONTINUED FURTHER INTO THEIR CAREER TO PURSUE THEIR BACHELOR OF NURSING AND ONE RECIEVED HER PHD." AFTER GRADUATION, PAT WORE HER GRAD UNIFORM ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS. SEE P20090023001 FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

DONOR RELATES THAT THIS BINDER BELONGED TO HER WHEN SHE WAS IN JUNIOR HIGH AT COALDALE. THE NAKAYAMA FAMILY WAS ORIGINALLY FROM VANCOUVER BUT MOVED TO COALDALE FOLLOWING THE SECOND WORLD WAR WHEN THEY WERE INTERNED AT SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA BY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT. THE DONOR'S FATHER, REV. CANON G.G. NAKAYAMA, WAS AN ANGLICAN MINISTER IN VANCOUVER, AND THEN ESTABLISHED THE CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION IN COALDALE IN 1945 WHERE HE SERVED UNTIL 1970.
