Art Batty Construction Ltd.
Physical Description

History / Biographical
Art Batty Construction Ltd. was a construction company in Lethbridge that operated in the 1940s-1960s. The company was primarily involved with residential homes building and design plans in the 1950s. In the mid-1950s, the company also designed and constructed non-residential buildings, like the MacLeod’s Ltd. Lethbridge offices in 1954, and the Glendale Bowl Co. building in 1960. The company collaborated with other local firms, Haddin, Davis & Brown Ltd. and Meech, Mitchell, Robins & Associates to build the Glendale Bowl Company Building in 1960-61, which appears to be the company's last major project. The firm also worked on the Glendale Shopping District, constructed in 1955-56, which included the company’s offices in the area. Art Batty hired A.R. Koshney in 1947, who worked his way up from a carpenter to a company shareholder and Vice-President in 1954 with Art Batty Construction Ltd. A.R. Koshney, worked as the V.P. and Construction Supervisor over all the residential buildings from 1954 onward, then started his own residential construction firm in 1961. The name of Koshney’s firm has changed multiple times over the last several decades; however, most recently the firm is Koshney & Roy Homes, taken over by Koshney’s son.

History / Biographical
Edward Fredric "Teddy" Hagell was born June 20, 1895 in Coaldale, Alberta. His father, Edward Hagell, arrived in Lethbridge from England in about 1800 with his wife, who died with the birth of her first child, Cora. Edward Hagell started the first newspaper in southern Alberta. Edward and Ellen (2nd wife) had four children: violet, Freda, Albert, and Edward (teddy). Teddy began drawing at the age of 2 1/2 years, winning numerous competitions without having any formal training. He was a self-taught artist, though he did take some lessons in etching while in Vancouver. E.F. Hagell gained fame as a Canadian range rider and artist, depicting the early cattle country in much of his work. His father and two uncles homesteaded and established the 'Three Links' cattle ranch west of Cardston, in the Mountain View district. Hagell's own experience of ranching complemented his love of the outdoors, from which he developed his own unique style in the tradition of artists such as Rosa Bonheur, Charles Russell, and Fredrick Remington. Hagell married Cora Marie Pelletier in 1919 and the couple left for Los Angeles that year. They had three children born in 1920, 1922, and 1923, before moving to Vancouver in 1929. Hagell had the first one-man exhibition at the Vancouver art gallery when it opened in 1932. That year the family returned to Coaldale, where they stayed until moving to Calgary in 1935, and back to Lethbridge two years later. In the mid 1940s the Hagells moved to Brampton, Ontario, where they remained until settling in pincher creek in 1952. E.F. Hagell returned to Lethbridge just prior to his death in 1964, at the age of 69. The work of E.F. Hagell is unique in that it was confined exclusively to prairie and mountain scenes of western Canada. Many of his works reproduced incidents he saw and experienced and most pieces were done in pen and ink. Every one of his drawings or paintings contained at least one animal; he had little interest in depicting people. Hagell wished, through his work, to preserve the history of the early days of the west before mechanization was introduced. Hagell received international recognition through a series of prints and etchings circulated through the Canadian national parks. Collections of his work were shown in or recognized by the Beaver Club in London, the Royal Canadian Academy, the London Illustrated News, Vista Del Arroya--Passadena, painters and etchers of Ontario, and the Glenbow foundation in Calgary (in 2006 Glenbow transferred a major part of their Hagel related artifacts to the Galt Museum & Archives. The Galt now holds the most significant collection of Hagel works.) His first major exhibition was in California, with subsequent shows in Oklahoma; Texas; the sportsman's show in Toronto; the Calgary Stampede; the 1951 Lethbridge Exhibition and Rodeo; the Calgary Petroleum Club; and an exhibit staged posthumously by his wife in 1970, at the Provincial Museum in Victoria, B.C.. During his career as an artist, hagell painted and drew about 1500 works. He also began writing in 1930, later publishing a collection of poems and short stories. He worked in various other jobs throughout his life, but mainly in window trimming and interior display for department stores. According to his son, Barnett, Hagell could not make a living from his art because if he showed in New York his work was considered too Canadian and in Toronto it was too western. He was not a good salesman for his own work as he considered the people who attended the exhibition cocktail parties to be phoney and insincere. He had a great love for the prairies and farming, and was a great storyteller, especially to children.

Annora Brown
Physical Description

History / Biographical
Annora Brown was born outside of Red Deer in 1899 and died at the age of 88 in Deep Cove, British Columbia in 1987 where she retired. Brown is one of the Alberta’s foremost early artists. Based for much of her life in historic Fort Macleod, Brown played a major role in creating a ‘picture’ of Southern Alberta: its wild landscape, First Nations, pioneer rural communities, local history- above all its wondrous nature symbolized by the wildflower. Her work was able to capture the culture of the First nation communities that she lived near. Her father was Edmund Foster Brown and mother was Elizabeth Ethel (Cody) Brown. Her mother supported and encouraged Brown’s love for art and from 1925-1929 Brown attended the Ontario College of Art in Toronto. She returned in 1929 and developed and art program for Calgary’s Mounted Royal College but later had to leave due to her mother’s illness. A student of the celebrated landscape painters, known as the Group of Seven (1920-1933), Brown’s artistic practice spans the 1930s to mid-1980s. During that time, she cobbled together a living as an artist, often by teaching, illustrating books and magazines, and selling, whenever she could, her captivating paintings in watercolor, tempera oil and later serigraph prints. In 1945-1950, brown worked as a respected artist and teacher at the Banff School of Fine Arts. She was also commissioned to paint over 200 western wild flowers for the Glenbow Foundation. Brown’s work was also included in Crescent Heights High School in Calgary, University of Alberta in Edmonton, United College in Winnipeg, and the Canadian Handicrafts Guild in Montreal. She was also awarded a prize in the Alberta Government’s 1955 Jubilee Contest for Alberta painters. In 1965 Brown retired to Deep Cove British Columbia to paint and garden. She had given a “voice” to a region that had been rarely presented in Canadian art. Her attention to the unique aspects of Old Man’s Country like Niitsitapi, the character and isolation of its small rural communities as well as its unforgettable environment was expressed mainly through her focus on wildflowers and native plants. Buoyed by the conviction that a woman’s activities “need not be limited to polishing furniture and raising babies”, Brown was also a writer and author of two books: the Western Canadian classic Old Man’s Garden and her autobiographical Sketches from Life. She was the first woman to receive an honorary degree from the University of Lethbridge in 1971 for her contribution to “western art and living.” (written by Mary-Beth Laviolette; Summer 2016 Gallery Exhibit at Galt Museum)

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
The Lethbridge Artists’ Club first began when a group of citizens interested in organizing an art exhibition in 1932, held at the YMCA. By 1936, a number of Lethbridge artists decided to create a club to organize regular exhibitions and art classes that were previously offered on an irregular and informal basis. A meeting in October of that year at the home of Anna MacKenzie formalized the creation of the Lethbridge Sketch Club, with Miss Mackenzie serving as president. The club held meetings, classes, annual exhibitions and outings to various sites in southwestern Alberta. Group of Seven member A.Y. Jackson would attend club events and outings while visiting his brother Ernest in Lethbridge. His avant garde landscapes and enthusiasm for on-site sketching provided an influence to members of the Sketch Club in its early years. Further influences on the group were the instructors of the Banff School of Fine Arts, where the Club would send an annual scholarship winner, and the instructors of an annual summer session held in Lethbridge. The most frequent instructor of these sessions was H.G. Glyde of the Technical Institute in Calgary and later the University of Alberta. Over the years membership in the club grew and the club attained a more permanent space at the former Bowman School through a favorable agreement with Lethbridge School District # 51. When the building passed to the City of Lethbridge in 1963, City Council agreed to maintain the terms of the agreement the Club had with the School District. This agreement provided a basis for the establishment of the Bowman Arts Centre, as other arts and crafts groups and the Historical Society were also offered space in the building and classes were offered daily by a variety of groups of the Allied Arts Council of Lethbridge. The Club continued to organize regular classes, workshops, demonstrations, and outings and was able to present two exhibitions annually of works by its members. Sometime after 2002 the club was renamed the Lethrbidge Artists’ Club.

History / Biographical
Tomomi Okutake originally immigrated to Canada in 1907, and was employed with the CPR in Vancouver. He then moved to Hardiville, Alberta in 1911, and resided there until enlisting with the Princess Pat Canadian Infantry in 1917. After serving two years in Britain and France, he was honourably discharged, receiving the British War Medal and Victory Medal. Upon his return to Canada, Tomomi began his work in the No. 6 coal mine. In 1930, he travelled back to Japan to marry Tsuru Genka, and together they moved back to Hardieville where Tomomi continued his work. The No. 8 coal mine site was moved to Lethbridge shortly after, where he continued as a miner until his retirement in 1953. Once Japanese citizens were allowed to live in Lethbridge, the couple moved into the city. Tomomi and Tsuru Okutake resided in the City of Lethbridge from 1961 until Tomomi’s passing in 1971. Throughout his time in Alberta, Tomomi became a founding member of the Lethbridge Buddhist Temple and the Lethbridge Honpa Buddhist Temple. He also played a big part in being the interpreter or spokesperson for those who couldn’t speak English in the Okinawan community. After Tomomi passed away, Tsuru enrolled at the Community College to learn English as a second language. She joined the Senior Centre and learned new skills such as weaving and dancing. In her final years, she lived in the Taber Long Term Care unit where she later passed away in 1990. The Okutake family had two adopted daughters, Patricia Yuriko (Sassa) and Esther Tsuru (Ayukawa).

History / Biographical
Vern (Vernon) Decoux was born January 18, 1920 in Blairmore, Alberta. During WWII, he served in the #13 District as a sergeant instructor and was stationed in Camrose and Calgary. He also served with the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry (commando rifles). On December 26, 1942, Vern married Florence (nee Taggart) in Hillcrest, Alberta. Vern and Florence had three children, a son Bruce, and 2 daughters, Gini and Susan. Vern was the Crowsnest Pass correspondent with the Lethbridge Herald from 1950 to 1985. He did news stories, took photographs, dealt with circulation, sold advertising, and looked after all of the region’s newspaper carriers. Throughout the years, he was an active member of a variety of clubs and organizations in the Crowsnest Pass. He was a member of the Elks for 48 years, acting as Exalted Ruler with the club for many years. He was also a member of the Lions Club (and received the Melvin Jones Fellow Award), the Knights of Columbus, and the Blairmore Legion. He was also a member of the Alberta Professional Photographers Association. Vern was also a Roman Catholic.

The first branches outside of Quebec were formed in Edmonton in 1911, Vancouver in 1912 and Winnipeg in 1913. The Alberta Provincial Branch was organized in 1928. The Lethbridge branch was formed in 1935. At the time of the Second World War and the pressure of Red Cross work, Red Deer, Medicine Hat, Maclead and Lethbridge branches disbanded. Lethbridge organized again in 1949. The first executive of 1949 included Mrs. J. McIntosh (President), Mrs. C.G. Cope (VP), Mrs. A.C. Head (Secretary) and Mrs. W. Strome (Tresurer).

History / Biographical
The Waterton Natural History Association was formed in 1983 in Waterton Lakes National Park (WLNP) as the first co-operating association in Western Canada. As a non-profit association with Parks Canada registered in the Province of Alberta, under the direction of a Board of Directors, its role was to provide and publish materials relevant to Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, provide funds for and execute projects undertaken to enhance WLNP and to sponsor special events and services for the enjoyment and education of the park visitor. The WNHA operated out of the Heritage Centre in the old Fire Hall on Waterton Avenue which was altered to house a museum of natural and cultural history exhibits about the area. The organization sold books, and topographic maps, sponsored natural history related events, workshops and art exhibits and well as providing one-on-one information to the visiting public. Summer employment programs were supported through the hiring of students, seniors, handicapped etc. Membership in the organization was open to all interested parties for a nominal fee. Over time, the WNHA operated the Crooked Creek Campground outside the park and sold plaques for a Cemetery Wall as well as raising funds for its various activities. In February, 2018, the association was formally dissolved at the final annual general meeting.

History / Biographical
Personal files of Senator Joyce Fairbairn reflecting her work as a Senator and Cabinet Minister in various community projects in Southwest Alberta. Senator Fairbairn, the first woman Senator from the Lethbridge area, has been involved in the Southern Albertan community all of her life and has contributed time, money, and love to many causes, organizations, and celebrations in Southern Alberta and Canada. Joyce Fairbairn was born at the Galt Hospital on November 6, 1939. She grew up in Lethbridge where she got her first experience as a journalist at the Lethbridge Herald while she was still in High School. Fairbairn earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of Alberta in 1960. Fairbairn then left Lethbridge to attend Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario where she earned a Bachelor of Journalism in 1961. After graduation, Fairbairn began working for the Herald’s Ottawa Bureau, the Ottawa Journal, and United Press International in the Parliamentary Press Gallery. Fairbairn was known as one of the first “female newsmen.” She worked as a journalist in Ottawa from 1961-1970 and was the first journalist to report on the new Canadian flag selection as well as covered Jackie Kennedy and President Kennedy’s visit to Ottawa in 1961. The Lethbridge Herald proudly continued to publish her work from 1965-1969. In 1970 Fairbairn became the Legislative Assistant and, later, the Communications Coordinator for Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. Fairbairn worked with Trudeau until 1984 when she was appointed to the Senate. After Fairbairn was appointed to the Senate in 1984 it quickly became clear that she would not be limited to the Red Chamber. Senator Fairbairn quickly became known for attending Southern Albertan milestones, openings, celebrations, and even the occasional cake decorating contest. Senator Fairbairn became well known throughout Southern Alberta because, as one constituent commented, “she cared enough to come”. Senator Fairbairn also became involved with many organizations and causes such as, the Paralympics, the Calgary Stampede, Books for Babies, and the Alberta Birds of Prey Centre. Fairbairn was present for celebrations in Southern Alberta such as, Lethbridge’s Centennial Celebration, Whoop Up Days, and many University of Lethbridge Convocations. Senator Fairbairn was also an active member of the Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association where she adopted a horse named “Dooley”. In 2008 the Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association honoured Senator Fairbairn with a lifetime membership. Senator Fairbairn’s devotion to Canada and the Southern Albertan community was also recognized by many other organizations. In 1990 she was inaugurated into the Kainai Chieftainship, where she received the name Chief Morning Bird Woman. Fairbairn was also made an Honourary Colonel of the 18th Air Defense Regiment, RCA. She was also made a Honourary Air Marshal and frequently attended the International Air Show at Lethbridge, Alberta. In addition, she was awarded with a Honourary Doctorate of Law by the University of Lethbridge in 2003. While Fairbairn was known for being present in the Southern Albertan community she was also known for her many accomplishments in Parliament. Her career as Senator began as the Vice-Chair of the National Liberal Caucus and the Western and Northern Liberal Caucus until 1991 when she was appointed Co-Chair of the National Campaign Committee. By 1993 Senator Fairbairn was appointed to Privy Council as the first woman to hold the position of Leader of Government. She also became the first Minister with Special Responsibility for Literacy. In 1997 she was appointed the Special Advisor on Literacy to the Minister of Human Resources Development Canada. In addition, Senator Fairbairn was the driving force behind making the Famous Five Honourary Senators and erecting a honourary statue celebrating the Famous Five on Parliament Hill. Senator Fairbairn retired from the Senate on January 18, 2013.
