History / Biographical
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. Head, Miss Lillian McNair, Mrs. Nell Clarke, Mrs, Edith Niven, Mrs. Rita Revenko, Mrs. Linda Gibson, Mrs. Etta Johnston, Mrs. Holly Turnbull, Mrs. Frances Gardiner, Mrs. Maida Bryant, Mrs. Anne Lundy, Mrs. Libby Fumerton, Mrs. Barbara Bruchet and Mrs. Cynthia Russel. The Guild first operated from the Red Cross Rooms. In 1964, the organization moved to the lower level of the Bowman Centre. The Guild offered a variety of classes including weaving, copper, lether, novelties, rugs, petit point, glovemaking, guiltting, knitting, tooled leather and flowers. In 1953 the Guild counted 134 paid members with 10-30 active member core. The activities also included discussions, demonstrations and exhibites. In 1964, Potters group withdrew from the Lethbridge Handicraft Guild. From 1966 to 1974 the following members received Life Membership: Cynthia Russel, Nell Clarke, Lovina Stringam, Etta Johnston.

History / Biographical
The club started in 1908 as the Women’s Fortnightly Literary Club in Fort Macleod, Alberta. The first meeting was held February 22nd at the home of Mrs. S Loterer. The founder of the club felt that “women in a relatively new community needed an opportunity to learn more about the world.” (Jean McCall, “1907-1912 (Fortnightly Club History.)” Every two weeks the club provided women the chance to meet with other women and discuss current events, art, literature history, science, and other educational topics of general interest. Membership was by nomination and the entire group had to vote on new members. Because meetings were to be held in the home of a member the numbers where intentionally kept to a size where this would remain possible. Meetings were not held over the summer, so the “seasons” of the club cover the span of two years (i.e. autumn 1929 to spring 1930). At each meeting a member would present a research paper on a topic that she had previously informed the group of, and then a discussion of the topic would follow. Sometimes this would include a slide presentation or other accompaniment. Informed discussion would be expected and in the early years of the group it was noted if a club member was prepared for the discussion or not. Lunch would also be served and current events would be discussed. The club secretary would take minutes of the meeting and club business would be voted on. Meetings could only be held if there were enough people present and over the years they were sometimes cancelled due to foul weather or epidemic. The club has been involved with a number of other organizations. During the war years members would sew for the Red Cross at their meetings, sometimes coming together weekly (as in 1917) instead of bi-weekly. On these occasions one member would read aloud to the other women who sewed making bandages, sheets, towels, and other items for the war effort. In the 1940s the group moved that no iced cakes be allowed at the meeting as a war to support the war effort and because of sugar rationing. They also made donations, sometimes quite sizeable, to a varied number of charitable groups from all over the world. The club also sent representatives to the 1918 National Council of Women. At this time suffrage was a popular topic of discussion at meetings. The club had a collection of books and a club librarian until 1993. In the early years of the club the town of Fort Macleod had no public library. By the early 1990s the town’s library was a part of the Chinook Arch Regional Library System and books could be brought in from the larger library in Lethbridge and others in surrounding towns easily so the club moved to dissolve the library and position of librarian. The books were donated to the school board. In 2008 the club celebrated its centennial and the club held a dinner. Members examined the records of the club and each wrote a paper based on a different time period. The resulting papers are a combination of a summary of the club meeting minutes and other files and current events for the period. These papers can be found in the research papers listed below.

History / Biographical
Arthur Henry Harwood was born in Oxfordshire, England on May 11, 1876. Little is known about his early life except for the fact that at age 13 he apprenticed as a cook and was employed by the Prince of Wales at Sandringham House. He also operated a catering business in Watford, England. In 1905, at the age of 29, he and his wife and their son, Stephen, immigrated to Calgary, Alberta, after a visitor from that city offered to pay the fare for the family. In exchange, Harwood was to take charge of her Calgary restaurant. Two years later, the family moved to Pincher Creek where Harwood opened the New Waldorf Hotel for Fred Kanouse, a man who was the partner to John George “Kootenai” Brown. Harwood opened his own business in Pincher Creek in 1909 which was known as “The Hygenic Bakery and Restaurant”. In 1910 he applied for a homestead in the Twin Butte area between Pincher Creek and Waterton. For several summers he worked in Waterton Lakes National Park, returning each winter to his homestead. In 1908 and 1909, Harwood assisted a Mr. O’Hara, a dominion land surveyor, in laying out the initial lots for what would, in 1910, become the official townsite of Waterton Park. Harwood soon became friends with John George “Kootenai” Brown, one of the first white settlers in the area. Brown was appointed Forest Ranger-in-Charge (often incorrectly referred to as the park’s first superintendent) in 1911 and was the man in charge of the park. So much did Harwood admire Brown that 20 years after his 1916 death, he personally built a stone cairn to Brown’s memory to recognize his place in history. The fall of 1913, Harwood worked in the park as a cook for the government crew building the first traffic bridge over Blakiston Creek (then called Pass Creek).He also had the contract to haul mail from Pincher Creek to Waterton. He hauled the mail until 1930. Harwood and his friend William Terrill of Twin Butte started a guiding and outfitting business providing extended backcountry hunting/guiding trips, often taking customers into British Columbia. Harwood was an avid fisherman and game bird hunter as well. About 1915, Harwood built a log house in Waterton which was located across from Middle Waterton bay and in July, 1919 he was officially appointed Waterton’s post master using his own residence as the post office. He moved to a new location on Fountain Avenue circa 1927 which was used as his personal residence and post office. He continued to serve as post master until 1949 or 1950 when he retired and moved to Victoria, British Columbia. During his years in Waterton he also served as a justice of the peace and later magistrate for both the provincial and federal governments. He was described as being a tireless community worker who was a charter member and second president of the Waterton Park Lions Club. He also helped raise money for the establishment of the Waterton Lions Community Hall. Mr. Harwood’s first wife died circa 1922 and he married Mrs. Minnie Kate Parker. Stephen Harwood spent his entire working life in Waterton first as park chauffeur and then mechanic, no mean feat given the fact that at age 16 he lost his left arm in a firearms accident. Stephen learned the art of photography/developing from his father, delving into advanced techniques such as taking photos with a self-timer. Stephen married Marjorie Cathcart and together they raised son Marvin in a home they built on Evergreen Avenue in Waterton. Arthur H. Harwood died in 1971 at the age of 94 in Victoria, British Columbia. His wife Minnie died at the age of 94 in 1977 in the same city. Their cremains and those of his son and daughter in law were buried in the Waterton Lakes National Park cemetery.
