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.

The history of the Canadian Handicraft Guild dates back to 1902, when the Women's Art Association of Montreal held a large exhibition of handicrafts. A few years later the organization named the Canadian Handicraft Guild was formed with the provision of formation of local branches all across Canada. 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). The original group included A.E. Ives, Mrs. D. Woodcock, Mrs. C.B. Johnson, Mrs. C. Farstad, Mrs. E. Church (Woitte), Mrs. J.T. Vallance, Mrs. W. Strome, Mrs. J. Keys, Mrs. G.C. Cope, Mrs. A.C.
