History
ALL OF THESE ARTIFACTS WOULD HAVE BEEN OWNED BY EITHER HAZEL RUTH MCNABBB AND HER MOTHER MRS. JOSEPH MCNABB (MAE). HOWEVER, MOST WOULD HAVE BELONGED TO HAZEL. MOST PURCHASES WOULD HAVE BEEN MADE IN OR NEAR LETHBRIDGE OR FORT MACLEOD. THE DONOR WAS BORN IN 1912 IN FORT MACLEOD AND MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1946. FAMILY LIVED ALONG THE OLD MAN RIVER ACROSS FROM THE RESERVATION, MOTHER WAS FROM NEW YORK, AND AFTER MARRYING HER HUSBAND CAME TO ALBERTA TO RANCH. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE DONOR, THE LATE MS. HAZEL MCNABB, PLEASE SEE THIS DONATION'S PERMANENT FILE. INCLUDED IN THE FILE, IS A 50 MIN INTERVIEW WITH MCNABB'S CLOSE FRIEND MARY OORDT FROM 20 MAY 2014.

PAINTBOX DONATED BY RON HAGELL JR. UPON THE PASSING OF E. F. (TED) HAGELL, RON'S FATHER, RON SR., ACQUIRED THE PAINTBOX, WHO THEN GAVE IT TO RON. RON USED THE PAINTBOX BRIEFLY, PENNING HIS AND HIS GRANDFATHER'S NAME ON THE BOX BEFORE DECIDING THAT IT "DID NOT FEEL RIGHT" TO USE THE PAINTBOX. ACCORDING TO RON, TED USED THIS PAINTBOX FROM THE MID 1940S UP UNTIL HIS DEATH IN 1964. MOST OF THE COLOUR WORKS PRODUCED DURING THE LAST 2 DECADES OF HIS LIFE WOULD LIKELY HAVE BEEN CREATED USING PAINTS FROM THIS PAINTBOX. TED OBTAINED SOME OF THE ART SUPPLIES CONTAINED WITHIN THE BOX BY WRITING TO HIS SISTER, VIOLET, WHO LIVED IN VANCOUVER. THERE WERE NO SUCH SUPPLIES AVAILABLE TO TED WHERE HE WAS LIVING. FOR MORE INFORMATION, SEE PERMANENT RECORD. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING THE VARIOUS DONATIONS PERTAINING TO EDWARD FREDERICK HAGELL. SEE RECORD P19960053001 FOR AN EXTENDED BIOGRAPHY OF THE ARTIST; SEE PERMANENT FILES P19960053001, P20040009001, P20060027001, P20070008001, AND P20070012001 FOR NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS, DETAILS ON PAST GALT DIRECTOR/CURATOR WILMA WOOD'S BOOK ON THE ARTIST, AND CORRESPONDENCE WITH THE HAGELL FAMILY.
