History / Biographical
The Lethbridge Gliding Club was born in 1929 when three teenage boys – Art Larson, Jim Findlay and Ivan Thomson – decided to build a Primary Glider. Art Larson, leader of the group, became enthused with flying after a ride in Jock Palmer’s Curtiss Standard J-1 in 1926. The boys worked in Larson’s garage, assisted by Art’s father Samuel who was a carpenter and was able to provide considerable advice about how to construct the woodwork. In the spring of 1930 the group – now calling themselves the Prairie Gliders – made repeated attempts to launch the glider, without success. It was not until they decided to give 13 year old Billy Ritson a ride that success was achieved. Billy soared about 20 feet into the air, and then made a slow turn before crashing back to earth. The wing of the glider was demolished, but Billy Ritson escaped unhurt and became the first person in Lethbridge to make a glider flight. Unfortunately, the Depression had begun and there was no money to repair the glider. Ivan Thomson went on to powered flight, and obtained his commercial pilot’s license in January 1931. He tried to interest Art Larson in a commercial air service venture at Medicine Hat, but before those plans developed Ivan Thomson and his passenger Donald McKenzie were killed in a crash at Lethbridge on 1 February 1931. Jim Findlay and Art Larson continued their interest in gliding and in 1933 purchased a Northrop Primary Glider. As with their first glider, the Northrop would not rise much more than a foot off the ground. Undeterred, Larson decided to build a glider of his own design. The Larson garage was once again the workshop, and success was finally achieved. The Primary Glider launched at 35 miles per hour, and often rose to a height of over 500 feet. Over the next four years the group made more than 1,500 flights in the Larson-designed Primary from the Municipal Airport in north Lethbridge. During those years four new members joined the club: Tom Hardy, John Zmurchyk, John Watson and Bob Niven. Of these four, Hardy and Zmurchyk stuck with the group and both became very good glider pilots. W.P. Stevens (Stevie) was lived in Calgary, but was often in Lethbridge on business and became a member of the gliding club. Jim Fretwell also visited the club from his home in Stettler. Fretwell had organized the Stettler Gliding Club, and became a full time member of the Lethbridge group when he moved to the city in 1937. Evelyn Fletcher joined the club in the fall of 1936, and until July 1939 she kept a detailed log of every flight made by the Lethbridge Gliding Club (LGC). Art Larson made several changes to the Primary from 1933 to 1937, the most important of which was the addition of an enclosed pod for the pilot. This protected the pilot from the weather and allowed flights to be made into November and December. Another modification was the removal of previously installed fabric on the aft fuselage and the addition of trim strips along the pod. The LGC logo was stenciled on the trim strips, below which were the words “Skid Busters”. Jim Findlay had broken the skid during a launch malfunction, and from that point on the airport personnel called the group the Skid Busters. In 1936 the club members decided, on the suggestion of Art Larson, to purchase the plans for the Hutter H-17 glider and build it beginning in January 1937. Construction of this German-designed glider was done in Tom Hardy’s spare bedroom and kitchen. A translator was found to translate the plans from German to English, and metric measuring tapes were also secured for the project. On 15 June 1937 the glider was taken in a trailer to the Municipal Airport, assembled and flown for the first time. A great success, the glider was flown 285 times by the end of the 1937 gliding year in November. The H-17 of the LGC continued in service until the club disbanded with the outbreak of World War 2 in 1939. Even after the club ended, Art Larson kept the glider flying for many more years. In the meantime, the LGC was able to take the Hutter H-17 on the road to Calgary and Fort Macleod. The money to build the glider’s trailer was donated by several Lethbridge businesses whose names appeared on the trailer from 1937 to 1939. Also in 1937, Art Larson had the misfortune to crash the Primary Glider he had designed. Since club members Evelyn Fletcher and Jim Findlay were still training on this glider, the decision was made to repair the Primary by installing a new gull-wing using a modified Hutter airfoil. As the project unfolded, it became apparent that the Primary could not be repaired, and an entirely new two-seat gull-wing glider was built. The test flight was on 13 March 1938, and after the balanced rudder was replaced with an unbalanced one, the two-seater flew well. By the end of June 1937, 221 flights had been made in the gull-wing. In the meantime, all of the club members had qualified on the Hutter H-17, so there was no further need for the gull-wing. It was sold to a gliding group in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The LGC continued on with the H-17 as its only glider. In 1938 members of the club made a record 384 flights, including a number of soaring flights that surpassed previous club marks for altitude and duration. In May 1939 Evelyn Fletcher made her first cross-country flight, covering eight miles in 45 minutes. Art Larson also completed a cross-country flight the same month. It was in July 1939 that Evelyn Fletcher left the LGC to train for her private pilot’s license in Calgary. The club was down to three members – Art Larson, Jim Findlay and Tom Hardy – and by the fall of 1939 they were no longer to keep the LGC going.

History / Biographical
The Mathesis Club of Lethbridge was organized on 11 September 1912 by a group of nine women who were interested in self education and self improvement during a period in the city’s history when formal educational opportunities for women were very rare. The club name was taken from a Greek word meaning "searcher of knowledge". A committee consisting of Mrs. Alice J. Heeb, Mrs. Cumming and Mrs. Maurine Daniel was appointed to draft a constitution for the new club. The club’s objectives as stated in that constitution included "self-improvement and united effort toward the highest development of home and community". The first officers of the Mathesis Club were Mrs. F. Stoltze (president), Mrs. A. M. Lafferty (vice president), Mrs. Alice J. Heeb (secretary), Mrs. F. Cumming (treasurer). The club was organized into ‘departments’ that reflected the study interests of the members: Music and Art, History and Literature. Members chose topics of interest from these broad categories and then researched, wrote and presented a paper on their topic at the regular meetings. When the club began meetings were held every two weeks, but later the meeting schedule became monthly. In addition to the departmental programs, meetings frequently featured guest speakers who presented on a variety of topics ranging from religion to scientific advances.At the time there was no public library in Lethbridge and the group arranged to borrow thirty books from the collection of McGill University in Montreal which would remain in the home of one of the members for the use of any of those in the group. During the First World War members joined the local Council of Women and Traveler’s Aid to work through those organizations. Fundraising teas and other events were also held. In World War II the club entertained the armed forces for a week. Membership in the club reached a high in 1917 with 87 members, by 2002 the membership had fallen to 20. Over the years, educational and self-improvement programs became widely available for women and the role of the Mathesis Club as a provider of those opportunities was diminished. A declining and aging membership put more and more pressure on the club, until in 2007 the members decided to dissolve the Mathesis Club. The final meeting was held at Luigi’s Restaurant, 1119 Mayor Magrath Drive South, on 19 June 2007.

History / Biographical
Edward Frederick (Ted) Hagell was born in Lethbridge on 20 June1895. He was the son of Edward G. and Ellen Hagell, who came to Lethbridge in 1893. Ellen Hagell was Mr. Hagell's second wife. His first wife, Kate died giving birth to their child. Kate's sister Ellen was sent from England to Canada as a 'replacement' wife to raise Kate. Ted Hagell had two sisters, Violet and Freda, and a brother Albert. Mr. Hagell and the two Mrs. Hagells were all born and raised in Maidstone, Kent, England. After some time in Saskatchewan, the Hagells moved to Lethbridge where Mr. Hagell worked for E.T. (Si) Saunders, owner of the Lethbridge News. In 1900 Mr. Hagell became a partner in the newspaper, and in 1905 sole owner upon the retirement of Mr. Saunders. Mr. Hagell sold the newspaper in 1910, and continued to work as a job printer until he and his family moved to British Columbia in 1924. Mr. and Mrs. Hagell both died in Vancouver, in April 1953 and December 1954 respectively. Ted Hagell exhibited a talent for drawing early in life. He developed a love of the prairie landscape looking out from the family's home near what is now the intersection of 7 Avenue and 11 Street South. The major artistic themes in his work were the prairie landscape, animals and the pioneer era of western Canada. Mr. Hagell worked primarily in pen and ink, but also in oils. He studied in New York and Los Angeles, and lived in Vancouver and on a farm near Toronto before returning to southern Alberta in 1952 to live in Pincher Creek. Mr. Hagell and his wife settled in Lethbridge in October 1963, just over a year before his death. During his lifetime Ted Hagell produced about 1,500 works of art, wrote poetry and short stories, and published one book. His work was shown in exhibitions in Canada, the United States and England. Ted Hagell married Cora Marie Pelletier on 27 October 1919. The couple had three sons, Barnett, Gordon and Ronald. Although a an recognized in the arts community for his talent, Ted Hagell achieved only limited financial success with his art. Ted Hagell died in Creston, B. C. on 28 December 1964, age 69. His wife Cora also died in Lethbridge, on 17 September 1981. Both are buried in Mountain View Cemetery.

History / Biographical
In early 2008, five students from the Art 4000 class at the University of Lethbridge wrote a proposal for an exhibit to be developed in cooperation with the Sir Alexander Galt Museum and Archives. The ideas and objectives of the exhibit are explained in the following excerpt from their proposal. "In Transit: Exploring Community in Motion In the exhibition, In Transit: Exploring Community in Motion, we intend to use public transit as a means to explore the dynamic community and diversity that resides within Lethbridge, Alberta. Using public transit as a departure point for our investigation allows us to explore an everyday activity that bridges diverse peoples and communities together into a common arena. Thus, the bus is an environment that is ripe with potential interaction. For some people, taking the bus is an experience full of interaction and stimulation. For others, the experience is solitary, or even isolating. Regardless of the type of interactions one may or may not have while taking the bus, for many of us, the experience is banal. Riding the bus is an activity that gets performed daily by many people. Common experiences such as this, however, often get overlooked in terms of its impact on our lives and community. It is this impact that we intend to investigate. Objectives We want to explore the experiences of Lethbridge’s diverse communities as they ride the bus, and bring our findings to the people of Lethbridge. Firstly, this would involve exposing the diversity that resides within Lethbridge, thereby challenging the homogenous perception of the city. Secondly, this would involve investigating the everyday activity of taking city transit. Often, such repetitive daily tasks get overlooked in terms of how they shape our lives and community. In our exhibition, we intend to reveal the importance that taking the bus has on shaping our interactions with diverse peoples. We foresee this show including about 20, primarily contemporary photographs. These photographs will be taken on the bus, and will consist of portraits of bus-goers or the internal architecture of the bus. We also plan to ask bus-goers various questions regarding their bus experience. Answers to questions such as “How often do you take the bus” or “Do you interact with people while riding the bus” will be incorporated into text panels presented throughout the exhibition. Archival photographs may be included, though it will depend on their relevance to our exhibition theme. We also plan to include a large schematic of the city’s transit routes, and mark the map where various interactions with people occurred. We are also interested in adding an audio component to the exhibit that would play interview with bus-goers as they ride the bus, or possibly simply the sounds of the bus as it travels throughout the city." The student co-curators - Kate Bossler, Megan Bylsma, April Matisz, Jordan Rule and Sharon Spear Chief - rode various bus routes in Lethbridge, speaking with people and taking their photographs and information when they were granted permission to do so. The exhibit they created, 'In Transit: Exploring Community in Motion', opened on 3 April 2008 and ran throughout the summer on the lower level of the Galt Museum and Archives.

History / Biographical
The Mathesis Club of Lethbridge was organized on 11 September 1912 by a group of nine women who were interested in self education and self improvement during a period in the city’s history when formal educational opportunities for women were very rare. The club name was taken from a Greek word meaning "searcher of knowledge". A committee consisting of Mrs. Alice J. Heeb, Mrs. Cumming and Mrs. Maurine Daniel was appointed to draft a constitution for the new club. The club’s objectives as stated in that constitution included "self-improvement and united effort toward the highest development of home and community". The first officers of the Mathesis Club were Mrs. F. Stoltze (president), Mrs. A. M. Lafferty (vice president), Mrs. Alice J. Heeb (secretary), Mrs. F. Cumming (treasurer). The club was organized into ‘departments’ that reflected the study interests of the members: Music and Art, History and Literature. Members chose topics of interest from these broad categories and then researched, wrote and presented a paper on their topic at the regular meetings. When the club began meetings were held every two weeks, but later the meeting schedule became monthly. In addition to the departmental programs, meetings frequently featured guest speakers who presented on a variety of topics ranging from religion to scientific advances.At the time there was no public library in Lethbridge and the group arranged to borrow thirty books from the collection of McGill University in Montreal which would remain in the home of one of the members for the use of any of those in the group. During the First World War members joined the local Council of Women and Traveler’s Aid to work through those organizations. Fundraising teas and other events were also held. In World War II the club entertained the armed forces for a week. Membership in the club reached a high in 1917 with 87 members, by 2002 the membership had fallen to 20. Over the years, educational and self-improvement programs became widely available for women and the role of the Mathesis Club as a provider of those opportunities was diminished. A declining and aging membership put more and more pressure on the club, until in 2007 the members decided to dissolve the Mathesis Club. The final meeting was held at Luigi’s Restaurant, 1119 Mayor Magrath Drive South, on 19 June 2007.

History / Biographical
Irma Dogterom is a local historian, community activist, author of several books and a long-time active member of the Lethbridge Historical Society. Mrs. Dogterom was born in Raymond, Alberta, and moved to Lethbridge a few years later. She attended Westminster School and Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. She was employed by A.E. Cross Studio as photographic lab assistant. She married Jacob Dogterom in 1950. After the four children reached school age, Mrs. Dogterom started working as secretary and library technician at a country school. In 1968 she transferred to Galbraith School as Library Clerk and later to Paterson School. During the summer break, Mrs. Dogterom volunteered at the Galt Museum. After her retirement in 1989, Irma Dogterom dedicated her time to local history research. She helped compile a district local history (Maclean School and Wilson/White School area). In the early 1990s, she took the job of Secretary and Newsletter editor of the Lethbridge Historical Society. As a member of the LHS executive she was involved in preparation of several historical publications and the Newsletter. She is the author of "Where Was It: A Guide to Early Lethbridge Buildings". Irma Dogterom spearheaded the initiative to recognize the contribution of women in the city, which resulted in the Legacy Ridge Project. The city agreed to name an area west on the west side of 13 St. North "Legacy Ridge" and name streets and parks there after local women. A special committee did a research study on accomplishments of the proposed individuals and published a booklet.
