Annora Brown
Physical Description

History / Biographical
Annora Brown was born outside of Red Deer in 1899 and died at the age of 88 in Deep Cove, British Columbia in 1987 where she retired. Brown is one of the Alberta’s foremost early artists. Based for much of her life in historic Fort Macleod, Brown played a major role in creating a ‘picture’ of Southern Alberta: its wild landscape, First Nations, pioneer rural communities, local history- above all its wondrous nature symbolized by the wildflower. Her work was able to capture the culture of the First nation communities that she lived near. Her father was Edmund Foster Brown and mother was Elizabeth Ethel (Cody) Brown. Her mother supported and encouraged Brown’s love for art and from 1925-1929 Brown attended the Ontario College of Art in Toronto. She returned in 1929 and developed and art program for Calgary’s Mounted Royal College but later had to leave due to her mother’s illness. A student of the celebrated landscape painters, known as the Group of Seven (1920-1933), Brown’s artistic practice spans the 1930s to mid-1980s. During that time, she cobbled together a living as an artist, often by teaching, illustrating books and magazines, and selling, whenever she could, her captivating paintings in watercolor, tempera oil and later serigraph prints. In 1945-1950, brown worked as a respected artist and teacher at the Banff School of Fine Arts. She was also commissioned to paint over 200 western wild flowers for the Glenbow Foundation. Brown’s work was also included in Crescent Heights High School in Calgary, University of Alberta in Edmonton, United College in Winnipeg, and the Canadian Handicrafts Guild in Montreal. She was also awarded a prize in the Alberta Government’s 1955 Jubilee Contest for Alberta painters. In 1965 Brown retired to Deep Cove British Columbia to paint and garden. She had given a “voice” to a region that had been rarely presented in Canadian art. Her attention to the unique aspects of Old Man’s Country like Niitsitapi, the character and isolation of its small rural communities as well as its unforgettable environment was expressed mainly through her focus on wildflowers and native plants. Buoyed by the conviction that a woman’s activities “need not be limited to polishing furniture and raising babies”, Brown was also a writer and author of two books: the Western Canadian classic Old Man’s Garden and her autobiographical Sketches from Life. She was the first woman to receive an honorary degree from the University of Lethbridge in 1971 for her contribution to “western art and living.” (written by Mary-Beth Laviolette; Summer 2016 Gallery Exhibit at Galt Museum)

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.

The Gardens were planted with the intention of keeping the hill from sliding, but became a tourist attraction, winning numerous awards. Initially the Gardens featured a centrepiece "6" in plants and flowers that were maintained by Head Gardener Tom Jones. The Gardens were expanded in 1958 when more spruce trees were planted to form a windbreak, and again in 1965 when a rock garden and waterfall were installed. When the Brewery ceased opertation in 1990, the City of Lethbridge took over the management of the Brewery Gardens."

History / Biographical
Michael Pisko was an artist and a local businessman. Born in Lethbridge in 1913, Pisko took up art at a young age. He studied industrial electricity at the Institute of Technology and Art in Calgary. He moved back to Lethbridge where he began working in the local sign business after he graduated during the Great Depression. Throughout his time at the sign company, he sketched and continued his artistic passion. He went on to study with artists such as A.Y. Jackson, Marion Nicoll and H. G. Glyde, attending the University of Alberta and the Banff School of Fine Arts. Southern Alberta proved to be an endless source of inspiration for Pisko’s artwork, where he created many oil paintings of the local landscape. The Galt Museum & Archives holds many of Pisko’s paintings in the Collections Department. Eventually taking over the City Sign Company, Pisko used his artistic skills to show his appreciation and talents to the Lethbridge business community. Pisko won many local art contests and was able to design signs for the Lethbridge Senior Centre, to which he was an active member, as well as the crest for Catholic Central High School, and many others. He was an active and founding member of the Lethbridge Sketch Club, and was a lifetime member of the Alberta Society of Artists. After his passing in 1999, the Michael Pisko Memorial Award at the University of Lethbridge was established to continue Pisko’s legacy of promoting beauty and passion.

History / Biographical
Vern (Vernon) Decoux was born January 18, 1920 in Blairmore, Alberta. During WWII, he served in the #13 District as a sergeant instructor and was stationed in Camrose and Calgary. He also served with the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry (commando rifles). On December 26, 1942, Vern married Florence (nee Taggart) in Hillcrest, Alberta. Vern and Florence had three children, a son Bruce, and 2 daughters, Gini and Susan. Vern was the Crowsnest Pass correspondent with the Lethbridge Herald from 1950 to 1985. He did news stories, took photographs, dealt with circulation, sold advertising, and looked after all of the region’s newspaper carriers. Throughout the years, he was an active member of a variety of clubs and organizations in the Crowsnest Pass. He was a member of the Elks for 48 years, acting as Exalted Ruler with the club for many years. He was also a member of the Lions Club (and received the Melvin Jones Fellow Award), the Knights of Columbus, and the Blairmore Legion. He was also a member of the Alberta Professional Photographers Association. Vern was also a Roman Catholic.

The vast majority of the images were created by Vernon Decoux, donor’s father, in a professional capacity as a photographer and owner of a photographic studio in Blairmore. After Vern’s death in April 2000, the materials were kept in his wife’s residence. In 2015, when Florence Decoux passed away, the materials came into the possession of their son, Bruce Decoux.

History / Biographical
Don Brestler was a rancher, artist and community activist who lived in the Pincher Creek area. Born in Calgary, Brestler got involved with the local ranching and cowboy community early in his life, which became a life-long passion and lifestyle. Brestler was a multitalented and self-taught artist, songwriter, poet, and writer. He wrote for many local Southern Alberta community papers and magazines. His artwork was also featured in several local publications. He wrote multiple books, stories, articles, poems, and other materials over the course of more than 50 years. Don Brestler worked for the Calgary Police service in the 1960s. His artworks were made into cards that friends and family and his local community received every Christmas. He was heavily involved in the local Church community and other community services in Pincher Creek and Twin Butte. He was the first musician to perform at the Cowboy Poetry in Canada in Pincher Creek, and became a big supporter of other local artists and the freedom of music in Canada.

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.
