History / Biographical
Donald W. Buchanan was born in 1908 in Lethbridge, Alberta. He was the son of Senator William Ashbury Buchanan, the publisher of the Lethbridge Herald. He studied Modern History at the University of Toronto and Oxford University. In 1934, he received a fellowship from the Carnegie Corporation to train in museum administration. Following his research fellowship, Buchanan founded the National Film Society of Canada, as well as he worked for the Canadian Radio Commission (now the CBC). Buchanan was always involved in the arts and he was a firm believer in making the arts accessible to the public. In 1963, Donald Buchanan, and his brother Hugh, offered many fine works of art to the City of Lethbridge. This became the first significant public art collection ever to exist in Lethbridge. He believed that art was meant to be shared and enjoyed by all. After leaving the Canadian Radio Commission, Buchanan worked for the National Film Board, where he established the stills division; from 1947 until 1960 he was employed by the National Gallery of Canada, serving as director of the Industrial Design Division (1947-1953). His work with the National Industrial Design Committee and the curated the revolutionary exhibition “Design for Use in Canadian Products” (1946) which changed the standards of Canadian art. Donald W. Buchanan served as the Associate Director of the National Gallery of Canada, and took a leave of absence to explore his own artistic endeavors of photography while travelling throughout Europe. Buchanan returned to the Gallery in 1963 as a member of its Board of Trustees, and he became the Director of the International Fine Arts Exhibition at Expo ’67 in Montreal. In the last few years of his life, his friends recall him being busier than ever, organizing the exhibition. He never was able to see the fruits of his labor, however, because of his sudden death in 1966 after being struck by a car in Ottawa. His legacy centered on the accessibility of art to the public and his impact on the art community in Lethbridge.

History / Biographical
Everett Soop, 1943-2001, was born on the Blood reserve in southern Alberta. From a young age he was incapacitated by muscular dystrophy. He studied at the Alberta College of Art in Calgary in 1964, then spent a year at Brigham Young University, Utah, USA. He then studied journalism at Calgary's Mount Royal College, and spent two years at the University of Lethbridge, during which time he took summer courses at the Banff School of Fine Arts. In 1968 he was hired by the newly-launched Kainai News newspaper to draw political cartoons and write columns. From 1976 to 1982 he wrote a regular column called "Gitskenip" (You Know). He served on the Blood Tribal Council from 1982 to 1986. He was unemployed and in poor health from 1986 to 1989, but in 1990 briefly resumed working as a cartoonist for Kainai News. His cartoons and writings are noted for satirizing not only government agencies and their treatment of natives, but also the foibles of his own people. Three books of his works have been published, the first a selection of his cartoons, Soop Take a Bow / Everett Soop. - Stand Off, Alberta : Indian News Media Society, 1979; Another Bowl of Soop; and the last a selection of both his columns and cartoons, I See My Tribe is Still Behind Me / Everett Soop, edited and intro. by Hugh A. Dempsey. - Calgary : Glenbow Museum, 1990. See also the documentary Soop on Wheels / Two Wheels Production. -- Toronto : Ashland, 1998.
