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.

A GIFT FROM ICA PERU. DURING THE EARLY 90'S, LETHBRIDGE HAD A PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM WITH ICA PERU. THIS EXCHANGE WAS MEANT TO UPDATE THE BUREAUCRATIC METHODS USED IN ICA PERU TO MORE CONTEMPORARY POLITICAL AND CIVIC PHILOSOPHY. THIS BANNER WAS A GIFT FROM PERU TO SYMBOLIZE THIS RELATIONSHIP. UNFORTUNATELY, THE EXCHANGE PROGRAM WAS NOT PARTICULARLY SUCCESSFUL SINCE EVERY TIME A NEW MAYOR WAS ELECTED (THEY COULD BY LAW ONLY SERVE ONE TERM), THE ENTIRE BUREAUCRACY WAS CHANGED. THIS MEANT THAT ANYTHING THAT THE PREVIOUS BUREAUCRATS LEARNED THROUGH THIS EXCHANGE WAS LOST. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME ASSOCIATED WITH THE EXCHANGE BETWEEN ICA, PERU AND THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM BETWEEN ICA, PERU AND LETHBRIDGE WAS FOUND IN LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM JANUARY 30 AND OCTOBER 16, 1991. IN JANUARY 1991 THE MAYOR AND CITY DIRECTOR OF ICA, PERU VISITED LETHBRIDGE FOR 10 DAYS TO OBSERVE THE OPERATION OF VARIOUS CITY DEPARTMENTS THROUGH THE MUNICIPAL PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROJEXT. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM WAS TO MATCH MANAGERIAL AND TECHNICAL EXPERTS IN CANADIAN MUNICIPALITIES WITH THEIR COUNTERPARTS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. AT THE TIME OF THE EXCHANGE, ICA WAS A COMMUNITY OF 200,000 PEOPLE, WITH AGRICULTURE AND WINE PRODUCTION BEING ITS TWO LARGEST INDUSTRIES. A SECOND PERUVIAN DELEGATION VISITED LETHBRIDGE IN OCTOBER 1991, AND A THIRD WAS MEANT TO ARRIVE IN EARLY 1992, BUT NO ARTICLES WERE FOUND TO SUGGEST THAT THE PROGRAM CONTINUED FURTHER.

SEE P19890028001-GA FOR HISTORY. DESIGNED TO ANNOUNCE OR ADVERTISE EVENTS. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS. THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF THE I.O.D.E. AND ITS LETHBRIDGE CHAPTERS WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM THE I.O.D.E. WEBSITE, GALT ARCHIVES, AND AN ARTICLE FROM THE APRIL 21, 2014 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. THE IMPERIAL ORDER DAUGHTERS OF THE EMPIRE (IODE) WAS FOUNDED IN 1900 BY MARGARET POLSON MURRAY OF MONTREAL WHO WANTED TO INCREASE HOMELAND SUPPORT FOR CANADIANS FIGHTING WITH THE EMPIRE FORCES IN SOUTH AFRICA DURING THE SECOND BOER WAR. MURRAY INITIATED THE FORMATION OF A FEDERATION OF WOMEN TO PROMOTE PATRIOTISM, LOYALTY AND SERVICE TO OTHERS BY SENDING TELEGRAMS TO THE MAYORS OF CANADA'S MAJOR CITIES ASKING THEM TO CALL TOGETHER THE PROMINENT WOMEN IN THEIR COMMUNITIES. THE FIRST CHAPTER WAS FORMED IN FREDRICTON, NEW BRUNSWICK IN JANUARY 1900. THE FOLLOWING MONTH A CONSTITUTION AND LIST OF OBJECTIVES WERE DRAFTED IN MONTREAL. IN 1901 THE HEAD OFFICE MOVED TO TORONTO AND THE FEDERATION WAS INCORPORATED. CHAPTERS WERE QUICKLY STARTED ACROSS CANADA AND IN INDIA AND THE BAHAMAS. FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN PROJECTS MOUNTED BY VARIOUS I.O.D.E.

REED PURCHASED TWO LOTS ON WHAT IS NOW 6TH AVENUE SOUTH. THE FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED A MARKET GARDEN ON THE PROPERY, AND BUILT A STONE DUPLEX THAT STILL STANDS ON THE 1200 BLOCK OF 6TH AVENUE. REED WORKED AS A COAL MINER TO EARN MORE MONEY TOWARDS INVESTING IN FURTHER LAND, AND RAISED PIGS WITH SCRAP FOOD FROM THE NEARBY RCMP BARRACKS. IN 1901, REED PURCHASED 2.5 SECTIONS OF LAND NEAR PRESENT-DAY GRANUM WITH HIS FOUR SONS AND ONE SON-IN-LAW; HIS SON BILLY LATER TOOK OVER THIS RANCH. REED WAS A JUSTICE OF THE PEACE IN LETHBRIDGE AND A MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL BOARD. IN EARLY 1906, HE PURCHASED EDGEHILL FARM, NEAR SIX MILE COULEE, BUT HE DIED LATER THAT YEAR ON APRIL 25. MARY REED LIVED AT THE FARM FOR YEARS AFTERWARD, AND DIED IN KELOWNA, B.C. IN 1932 AT HOME OF ONE OF HER SONS. BOTH JOB AND MARY REED ARE BURIED IN MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY IN LETHBRIDGE.

UP UNTIL HE WAS ONE HUNDRED AND ONE OR SO.” SHE CONTINUED, “POP WAS IN ENGLAND [WHEN] HE MARRIED HIS WIFE - [AND MY] GRANDMOTHER - ALICE MAY EDWARDS BENNETT.
