DONOR LYNN UIBEL SOLD THE PICTOGRAPH CHANDELIER TO THE GALT MUSEUM IN 2008. LYNN ACQUIRED THE CHANDELIER FROM P. WHETIK WHILE HE WAS WORKING AT THE PRINCE OF WALES HOTEL IN WATERTON IN THE 1950S. LYNN PASSED AWAY IN 2009. THE CHANDELIER WAS HUNG APPROXIMATELY 25 FEET HIGH, FROM A WIRE IN A VAULTED SECTION OF A CEILING. LYNN NEVER HAD THE ITEM CLEANED OR HAD ANY OF THE RIPS AND TEARS IN THE CHANDELIER FIXED, AS HE WAS AWARE OF ITS FRAGILITY AND DID NOT WANT TO RISK FURTHER DAMAGE TO THE ITEM. WHEN LYNN ACQUIRED THE ITEM, ONE OF THE PANELS WAS RIPPED. ROLAND RECALLED THAT WHEN LYNN TRIED TO HANG THE CHANDELIER, ANOTHER PANEL WAS DAMAGED. DURING THE 1950S, WHEN THE PRINCE OF WALES HOTEL WAS BEING RENOVATED, APPROXIMATELY 50 CHANDELIERS WERE BEING PACKED UP AND DISCARDED. LYNN THEN ACQUIRED A CHANDELIER ON THE BASIS THAT THEY WERE GOING TO BE DISCARDED. ACCORDING TO LYNN'S PARTNER, ROLAND BOYD, LYNN HAS STRONG CONNECTIONS TO THE HOTEL, HIS BROTHERS WORKED THERE AT SOME POINT, AND HE WAS BORN AND RAISED IN MOUNTAINVIEW, WHICH IS NOT FAR FROM THE HOTEL. ADDITIONALLY, HIS WORK AT THE PRINCE OF WALES HOTEL ENABLED HIM TO PAY FOR HIS UNIVERSITY EDUCATION. WHILE LYNN HAD NO NATIVE AMERICAN ANCESTRY, HE HELD A DEEP FASCINATION WITH NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURE, ESPECIALLY THAT OF SOUTHWEST AND PLAINS TRIBES. ROLAND RECALLED THAT ABOUT 90% OF THE ART IN THE HOME HE SHARED WITH LYNN WAS NATIVE AMERICAN. AS PART OF A UNIVERSITY THESIS, LYNN WROTE EXTENSIVELY ON AMERICAN PLAINS INDIANS AND THEIR CULTURE. LYNN NEVER LEARNED WHAT THE PICTOGRAPHS MEANT, OR WHO THE ARTIST WAS, OTHER THAN SOMEONE BELONGING TO THE BLACKFOOT CULTURE. IN AN E-MAIL CORRESPONDENCE IN AUGUST 2009, JAMES DEMPSEY SUGGESTED THAT THE PICTOGRAPH CHANDELIER WAS CREATED AFTER THE PICTOGRAPH FRIEZES AND PANELS. THE IMAGES APPEARING ON THE CHANDELIER ARE LIKELY TAKEN FROM THE FRIEZES AND PANELS, RATHER THAN TELLING THEIR OWN STORY OF A WAR OR HUNTING EXPLOIT. DEMPSEY WAS UNSURE OF WHO THE ARTIST(S) COULD HAVE BEEN. IN AN E-MAIL CORRESPONDENCE WITH GERRY CONATY, DIRECTOR / CURATOR OF THE GLENBOW MUSEUM, IN SEPT 2009, GERRY WAS ALSO UNSURE AS TO WHO THE ARTIST COULD HAVE BEEN. NEITHER JAMES NOR GERRY HAD COME ACROSS A PICTOGRAPH CHANDELIER SUCH AS THIS BEFORE. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WAS TAKEN FROM, “BLACKFOOT WAR ART: PICTOGRAPHS OF THE RESERVATION PERIOD, 1880-2000,” BY L. JAMES DEMPSEY, PUBLISHED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS, 2007. PICTOGRAPHS WERE COMMONLY USED BY BLACKFOOT (NATIONS) INDIANS FROM THE 1880'S AND THROUGHOUT THE 20TH CENTURY AS A MEANS OF RECORDING AND EXTOLLING WAR AND HUNTING EXPLOITS, EITHER OF INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS. WAR EXPLOITS WERE HIGHLY RESPECTED AND REGARDED WITH MUCH PRESTIGE WITHIN BLACKFOOT CULTURE. BLACKFOOT ELDERS SPENT MUCH TIME DURING THE LONG AND DARK WINTER MONTHS RECOUNTING WAR AND HUNTING STORIES. HUNTING SCENES, HORSE RAIDS, THE STEALING OF WEAPONS AND OTHER GOODS, SUCH AS MEDICINE BUNDLES OR PIPES, AS WELL AS THE KILLING OF ENEMIES AND EXTRACTING REVENGE WERE ALL EVENTS THAT WERE REPRESENTED IN PICTOGRAPHS. PICTOGRAPHS WERE OFTEN DRAWN ONTO VARIOUS SURFACES, SUCH AS ANIMAL HIDES, PAPER, BLACKFOOT SHIRTS, TEPEES, ROCKS, EVEN HORSES. IMAGES WERE PAINTED, DRAWN, SCRATCHED OR BURNED ONTO THE MATERIAL. PIGMENT WAS OFTEN APPLIED USING A PENCIL-SIZED STICK. VARIOUS MATERIALS WERE USED, SUCH AS CRAYONS, INK, NATURAL PIGMENTS FROM 1913 TO 1930, PICTOGRAPHS CREATED BY BLACKFOOT ARTISTS WERE UTILIZED BY THE GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAYS AS A WAY TO PROMOTE "WESTERN" THEMES AND TOURISM IN THE MANY HOTELS IN ALBERTA AND MONTANA. COME THE 1920S, GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY EXPANDED INTO CANADA, BUILDING THE PRINCE OF WALES HOTEL IN WATERTON NATIONAL PARKS. IN 1926, THE MISSIONARY CANON S. H. MIDDLETON SOUGHT BLACKFOOT PEOPLES WILLING TO RECOUNT WAR AND HUNTING EXPLOITS AND RECORD THESE STORIES USING PICTOGRAPHS. AS A RESULT, MANY PICTOGRAPH FRIEZES AND PANELS ADORNED THE WALLS OF THE PRINCE OF WALES HOTEL. IN HIS BOOK, DEMPSEY MENTIONS HOTELS BEING FURNISHED WITH LAMPSHADES THAT WERE ADORNED WITH PICTOGRAPHS (PG 274-78). FOR MORE INFORMATION, INCLUDING SOME PHOTOGRAPHS, SEE PAGES 114-127 IN, “GLACIER’S HISTORIC HOTELS AND CHALETS: VIEW WITH A ROOM,” BY RAY DJUFF AND CHRIS MORRISON, PUBLISHED BY FARCOUNTRY PRESS IN 2001.

History
DOLL BELONGED TO DONOR'S FAMILY AND WAS KEPT IN THE BUFFET. POSSIBLY A SPECIAL ITEM BROUGHT FROM JAPAN. DOLL IS MENTIONED IN DONOR'S NOVEL "OBASAN". THE NAKAYAMA FAMILY WAS ORIGINALLY FROM VANCOUVER BUT MOVED TO COALDALE FOLLOWING THE SECOND WORLD WAR WHEN THEY WERE INTERNED AT SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA BY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT. THE DONOR'S FATHER, REV. CANON G.G. NAKAYAMA, WAS AN ANGLICAN MINISTER IN VANCOUVER, AND THEN ESTABLISHED THE CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION IN COALDALE IN 1945 WHERE HE SERVED UNTIL 1970. FROM AUGUST 29 TO 31, 2011 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED THE DONOR, JOY KOGAWA, ABOUT HER MEMORIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPECIFIC OBJECTS THAT SHE DONATED IN 1997. OF THIS ARTIFACT, KOGAWA SAID: “I ALWAYS USED TO SEE THIS TINY LITTLE DOLL… IT SAT IN THE BUFFET, A LITTLE DECORATION. I GUESS MY MOM JUST LOVED IT. IT WAS ONE OF THE THINGS SHE BOUGHT AND KEPT. I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY THINGS SHE HAD TO LEAVE [OR] WHY SHE WOULD KEEP THIS LITTLE TINY THING.” SEE RECORD P19970041001 FOR EXPANDED BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION AND PERMANENT FILE FOR FURTHER HISTORY.

VASES BELONGED TO DONOR'S PARENTS, ONE OF WHICH ACQUIRED THEM ON A TRIP TO INDIA. DONOR RELATES THAT THE PAIR OF VASES SAT ON TOP OF THE FAMILY PIANO. REV. NAKAYAMA AND HIS FAMILY MOVED TO COALDALE IN 1945 AFTER BEING RELOCATED FROM VANCOUVER IN 1942 TO SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA. AT COALDALE HE FOUNDED THE ANGLICAN CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION WHERE HE WAS RECTOR FROM 1945 TO 1970. FROM AUGUST 29 TO 31, 2011 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED THE DONOR, JOY KOGAWA, ABOUT HER MEMORIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPECIFIC OBJECTS THAT SHE DONATED IN 1997. OF THIS ARTIFACT, KOGAWA SAID: “THEY WERE ALWAYS THERE ON TOP OF THE PIANO, BOTH OF THOSE… IN COALDALE, AND PROBABLY IN SLOCAN… I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING DAD PICKED UP SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE... I DON’T KNOW IF HE GOT THEM IN INDIA OR WHERE HE GOT THEM.” SEE RECORD P19970041001 FOR EXPANDED BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION AND PERMANENT FILE FOR FURTHER HISTORY.

USED IN HAND HOOKING RUGS. BELONGED TO DONOR'S MOTHER, GRACE MARSHALL, ARRIVED IN ALBERTA IN 1909 FROM NOVA SCOTIA, VIA U.S.A. *UPDATE* IN 2018, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN ARTIFACT AUDIT, WHICH INCLUDED A BUTTONHOOK AND CUTICLE KNIFE DONATED BY CATHERINE HARVEY. AS PART OF THE AUDIT PROCESS, PUNDYK CONNECTED WITH HARVEY’S DAUGHTER, CARL HARVEY-BARNES. ON OCTOBER 22, 2018, HARVEY-BARNES CAME INTO THE GALT MUSEUM TO REVIEW THE DONATION AND PROVIDE FURTHER INFORMATION. SHE DID NOT HAVE SPECIFIC MEMORIES OF ANY OF THE FIVE ARTIFACTS DONATED BY HER MOTHER, BUT SUSPECTS THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN FROM HER GRANDMOTHER’S DAILY LIFE. HARVEY-BARNES EXPLAINS THAT THE OBJECTS WOULD HAVE BEEN LEFT BEHIND IN HER GRANDMOTHER’S HOUSE FOLLOWING HER 1961 PASSING. WHILE UNCLEAR OF THESE RUG HOOKS SPECIFICALLY, HARVEY-BARNES RECALLED BEING TAUGHT HOW TO MAKE PUNCH RUGS BY HER GRANDMOTHER, GRACE MARSHALL, USING SIMILAR TOOLS. THE DONOR CONTRIBUTED HER FAMILY’S HISTORY TO THE COMMUNITY HISTORY BOOK TITLED “PIONEER PEMMICAN CLUB ROUNDUP 1885-1985” (PUBLISHED 1984). THE HISTORY READS: “ALEXANDER AND GRACE (MURRAY) MARSHALL WERE BOTH BORN IN PICTOU, NOVA SCOTIA. IN THE EARLY 1900’S ALEX BOUGHT LAND IN THE AREA NOW KNOWN AS THE MCNALLY DISTRICT, SOUTH OF LETHBRIDGE. WHILE STILL A YOUNG MAN HE MOVED TO THE UNITED STATES WHERE HE AND GRACE WERE MARRIED. IN 1909, THE MARSHALLS WITH THEIR FOUR SONS: BILL, DON, GEORGE AND ALEX, MOVED FROM MINOT, NORTH DAKOTA, TO LETHBRIDGE, TO LOOK AFTER THE LAND THEY HAD PREVIOUSLY BOUGHT. ALEX, BROTHER-IN-LAW, GEORGE MURRAY, ARRIVED IN 1910 TO BE FOREMAN ON THE FARM WITH ALEX WAS MANAGER OF A. MACDONALD WHOLESALE GROCERS, WHICH WAS LATER PURCHASED BY WESTERN GROCERS. ALEX DIED IN 1917. IN ADDITION TO THEIR FOUR SONS, THE MARSHALLS HAD A DAUGHTER, CATHERINE, WHO WAS BORN IN LETHBRIDGE. THE ELDEST SON, BILL, DIED AT THE AGE OF FOURTEEN YEARS AS THE RESULT OF AN ACCIDENT AT THE TAYLOR MOLL ON THIRTEENTH STREET SOUTH. DON MARSHALL, A PILOT IN THE UNITED STATES MARINES, WAS LATER INVOLVED IN THE AVIATION BUSINESS. GEORGE SERVED IN THE CANADIAN ARMY DURING WORLD WAR II; FOLLOWING HIS DISCHARGE HE BECAME A PARTNER IN MCGUIRE’S MEN’S WEAR IN LETHBRIDGE. ALEX WAS A WELL-KNOWN FARMER IN THE MCNALLY DISTRICT. CATHERINE MARRIED WILLIAM “BILL” HARVEY, GENERAL MANAGER OF A LETHBRIDGE AUTOMOTIVE FRANCHISED DEALERSHIP. BILL HARVEY IS NOW DECEASED AND CATHERINE CONTINUES TO LIVE IN LETHBRIDGE. THEY HAD TWO DAUGHTER, JANET AND CARL.” ACCORDING TO HARVEY-BARNES, HER GRANDMOTHER, GRACE MARSHALL, LIVED IN A HOUSE CATHERINE HARVEY RENTED IN THE 1930S FOLLOWING THE PASSING OF HER HUSBAND. THE OBITUARY FOR GRACE MARSHALL PUBLISHED ON JANUARY 11, 1961 IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD STATES SHE WAS BORN AT LOGANVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA. SHE PASSED AWAY JANUARY 10, 1961 AT THE AGE OF 83 YEARS. PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE P19880060001 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION INCLUDING NOTES FROM THE GALT MEETING WITH CARL HARVEY-BARNES ALONG WITH COPIES OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND ADDITIONAL ARCHIVAL RESEARCH.
