NO IDENTIFYING MARKS. MANUFACTURER UNKNOWN. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE ROY CLINIC. THE FOLLOWING HISTORY OF THE ROY CLINIC WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM GALT ARCHIVES, DR. LOUIS ARTHUR ROY'S LETHBRIDGE HERALD OBITUARY, AND THE BOOK 'MEDICAL CLINICS AND PHYSICIANS OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA' BY GERALD M. MCDOUGALL AND FIONA C. HARRIS (1991). DR. LOUIS A. ROY WAS BORN IN MOOSOMIN, SASKATCHEWAN IN 1888. AFTER RECEIVING HIS EARLY EDUCATION THERE, HE PURSUED MEDICINE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, WHERE HE EARNED A BACHELOR OF MEDICINE IN 1911.

HE WAS STATIONED IN A BRITISH MILITARY HOSPITAL IN KENT AS A PATHOLOGIST AND EARNED THE RANK OF CAPTAIN. UPON WAR'S END DR. ROY RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE AND WORKED WITH THE CAMPBELL GROUP UNTIL 1936, WHEN HE PARTNERED WITH DR. VALERIAN SWANCESKY (AND LATER, WITH DR. STEPHEN SCHMALTZ) TO CREATE THE ROY CLINIC GROUP. THE CLINIC WAS HOUSED ON THE FIRST FLOOR OF THE SHERLOCK BLOCK. DR. ROY WAS ACCREDITED AS A SURGEON BY THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF CANADA IN 1945, AND HE PRACTICED AT THE CLINIC UNTIL HIS RETIREMENT IN 1961. DR. ROY'S SON, DR. DOUGLAS GAETEN ROY ALSO JOINED THE PRACTICE IN 1945. DR. LOUIS A. ROY DIED IN 1964, BUT THE PRACTICE CONTINUED WITH ADDITIONS INCLUDING DR. DONALD ARTHUR RICE AND DR. JAMES ALFRED MCNALLY.

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. CHAPTERS HAVE INCLUDED A MONUMENT TO CANADIAN SOLIDERS KILLED IN BATTLE IN SOUTH AFRICA, A GATEWAY IN TORONTO TO COMMEMORATE THE 1901 VISIT OF THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF YORK, INCREASED BEDS IN A TUBERCULOSIS SANITORIUM IN HAMILTON, ONTARIO, NUMEROUS CHILD WELFARE PROJECTS, VARIOUS WAR MEMORIAL FUNDS AND SCHOLARSHIPS FOR CHILDREN OF VETERANS, THE PURCHASE OF HOSPITALS, AMBULANCES, SHIPS, AND AIRCRAFT IN BOTH WORLD WARS TO PROVIDE AID TO CANADIAN SOLDIERS, COMMEMORATIVE GARDENS, INTERNATIONAL RELIEF FOR PERSONS DISPLACED BY WAR, AND DOMESTIC RELIEF FOR CANADIANS DISPLACED BY NATURAL DISASTERS. LETHBRIDGE'S FIRST I.O.D.E. CHAPTER WAS THE SIR ALEXANDER GALT CHAPTER, FORMED IN 1914. AT ITS PEAK OF ACTIVITY, THE I.O.D.E. HAD FIVE CHAPTERS IN LETHBRIDGE, INCLUDING THE DR. FRANK H. MEWBURN CHAPTER AND THE MAJOR JACK ROSS CHAPTER. LOCAL I.O.D.E. EFFORTS INCLUDED THE WROUGHT-IRON GATEWAY OF MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY, THE SOLIDER'S PLOT IN THE CEMEMTERY, AND PLAQUES AT BATTERY POINT IN HENDERSON LAKE PARK. IN 1989 THE TWO REMAINING LETHBRIDGE CHAPTERS MERGED, AND BY 2014 THERE WERE NO CHAPTERS OPERATING LOCALLY. THE CALGARY MUNICIPAL CHAPTER STILL RAISES FUNDS FOR A VARIETY OF CHARITABLE CAUSES THROUGH HOTDOG SALES AND A THRIFT STORE. SEE PERMANENT FILE P19900051000 FOR HARDCOPIES OF SOURCE MATERIAL.

ITEMS CAME FROM DONOR'S FATHER, JAMES EICHORN. JAMES WAS BORN TO FREDA AND JACOB EICHORN NOVEMBER 11, 1929 IN ESTUARY, SASKATCHEWAN. JAMES' FATHER JACOB WAS A C.P.R. SECTIONMAN/FOREMAN FOR JUST UNDER 50 YEARS. JAMES' BROTHERS BILL, ROBERT, AND SISTER ELSIE'S HUSBAND, WALTER BRUNNER (STILL A RESIDENT OF LETHBRIDGE) ALL WORKED FOR THE RAILWAY IN ONE CAPACITY OR ANOTHER THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, AS DID DONOR'S MOTHER'S FAMILY AROUND THE MEDICINE HAT AREA (PROSKY FAMILY). JAMES STARTED HIS CAREER AS A SECTIONMAN IN IRVINE, ALBERTA IN 1945. HE MOVED TO MEDICINE HAT IN 1949 AND WORKED AS A TRAINMAN ON RUNS FROM MEDICINE HAT EAST TO MOOSE JAW, SASK. AND ALSO FROM MEDICINE HAT TO CALGARY. JAMES MARRIED MARION SUSAN PROSKY IN MEDICINE HAT ON JULY 26, 1952. THEY MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1962 AND JAMES CONTINUED HIS CAREER AS A TRAINMAN, SHORTLY THEREAFTER BEING PROMOTED TO CONDUCTOR, WHOM WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OPERATION OF THE TRAIN AND RODE IN THE CABOOSE. DONOR REMEMBERS THAT FROM THIS POINT FORWARD HIS FATHER STARTED HIS COLLECTION OF RAILWAY ARTIFACTS AND ANTIQUES AS THE WORLD OF RAILWAY WAS QUICKLY EVOLVING FROM STEAM POWER TO DIESEL POWER AND ALL THAT WENT WITH THAT CHANGE. JAMES' RUNS AT THIS TIME WERE FROM LETHBRIDGE TO COUTTS . . .MEDICINE HAT. . . AND CARDSTON. IN THE LATTER YEARS HE WAS ON A WEEKLY RUN FROM LETHBRIDGE TO VAL MARIE AND SHAUNAVON, SASK. - THIS WAS A MONDAY TO FRIDAY JOB. JAMES ALSO HAD A SMALL MODEL RAILROAD COLLECTION IN HIS BASEMENT THAT WAS A GREAT HOBBY FOR HIM AND HE COMBINED THIS WITH HIS COLLECTION OF RAILWAY MATERIALS OF THE AREA. HE WAS PROUD OF HIS COLLECTION AND DISPLAYED IT PROUDLY AND LOVED TO TALK ABOUT IT WITH WHOMEVER WOULD LISTEN. JAMES' LIFE WAS TAKEN IN A TRAIN/TRUCK ACCIDENT AT THE STIRLING ALBERTA HIGHWAY CROSSING ON FEBRUARY 10, 1978, WHICH MADE HEADLINE NEWS IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. MOST OF THE ITEMS IN COLLECTION WERE COLLECTED AS THE RAILWAY EMERGED INTO THE MODERN INDUSTRIAL WORLD AND RAILWAY STATIONS WERE CLOSED AS WELL AS SMALL BRANCH LINES ELIMINATED AS THE NEED FOR WORKERS WAS BEING TAKEN AWAY. FRIENDS THAT FOUND OLD LANTERNS, ETC. DID CONTRIBUTE AS THEY KNEW JAMES WAS A COLLECTOR. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS. SHE FOUND THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT THE PRODUCTION OF THIS POSTER EDITION VIA WWW.SPORTSPOSTERWAREHOUSE.COM, WHERE REPRINTS WERE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE: "THIS SPECTACULAR PRINT TAKES YOU HIGH ABOVE THE LEGENDARY BANFF SPRINGS HOTEL CIRCA 1947... PUBLISHED TO PROMOTE TRAVEL VIA CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAYS TO THE ALBERTA MOUNTAIN RESORT, IT FEATURES AN AERIAL SHOT OF THE HISTORIC DESTINATION, WITH THE GOLF COURSE, VALLEY, FORESTS, WATERS, HILLS, MOUNTAINS, AND GLACIERS ALL IN VIEW..."

DONOR GÜNTER HORN CAME INTO POSSESSION OF THE DONATED OBJECTS WHEN THE LETHBRIDGE BREWERY SHUT DOWN IN 1990. AT THE TIME OF DONATION HORN SAID, “I WAS ONE OF TWO PEOPLE SELECTED BY MOLSON’S TO GET RID OF THE ASSETS, TO DEAL WITH CONTRACTORS AND COMMITTEES, YOU KNOW, DISPOSE OF THE ITEMS. THERE WAS A THIRD PERSON AND HE WAS LOCATED IN SASKATOON, ALSO WORKING FOR MOLSON’S. THAT WAS BASICALLY THE ROLE. I WAS, PRIOR TO THAT, I WAS A BREW MASTER, THE BREWING MANAGER. I WAS FAMILIAR WITH THE PLANT LAYOUT AND EQUIPMENT THAT WAS AVAILABLE; SOME THAT WAS SENT TO OTHER MOLSON’S PLANTS LIKE CALGARY, EDMONTON, BARRIE, REGINA TO GET ENOUGH ITEMS. AND WHAT WAS NOT REQUIRED OR REQUESTED BY MOLSON’S BREWERIES, LIKE OTHER PLANTS, IT WAS MADE AVAILABLE FOR SALE TO PROSPECTIVE BUYERS FOR TANKS AND SOME OF THE MACHINERY. THAT IS BASICALLY IT - THE TEAM OF CONTRACTORS WITH POTENTIAL BUYERS GO TO THE PLANT, SEE WHAT EQUIPMENT THEY WERE INTERESTED IN, OR ALSO WHAT WAS AVAILABLE, AND WE HAD, IN CONJUNCTION WITH A THIRD PERSON IN SASKATOON, PRICES THAT WERE SET FOR DIFFERENT ITEMS AND WE HAD TO MAKE SURE THAT THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT WAS TAKEN OUT AND ALSO THAT THEY ARE PAYING THE SAME QUANTITY FOR THE PRICE THAT WAS SET BY MOLSON’S. WE DIDN’T SET ANY - IT WAS NOT MY FUNCTION TO SET PRICES. THAT WAS MOST LIKELY IN GENERAL WITH THE MEN FROM OTHER PLANTS CLOSURES.” THIS SIGN WAS ORIGINALLY USED IN THE ‘SNAKE ROOM’ AT THE BREWERY. HORN SAID, “THE RECEPTION AREA OR “SNAKE ROOM” IT WAS CALLED WAS STILL THERE WHEN I CAME IN ‘74. WE HAD THE WALL IN THE “SNAKE ROOM” AND IT WAS COVERED WITH, IS IT A 1/3 KEG OR ¼ KEG? THE WHOLE WALL WAS COVERED WITH WOODEN BARRELS, HALF CUT. [THE FUNCTION OF THE SNAKE ROOM WAS] JUST TO HOST PARTIES. ANYBODY COULD BOOK THE “SNAKE ROOM” FOR THEIR FUNCTION. ANYONE, PEOPLE WHO NEEDED A MEETING AND KNEW THE BREWERY WOULD ALWAYS BE OPEN. IT WAS OPEN, NOT JUST TO CERTAIN GROUPS, TO DIFFERENT GROUPS. WE USED TO HAVE THE MASTER BREWERS DOWN THERE. LETHBRIDGE WAS PART OF THE MASTER BREWERS ASSOCIATION THAT MET IN LETHBRIDGE, MET IN CALGARY OR EDMONTON. THIS [SIGN] IS FROM THE SNAKE ROOM AND ON THE BACK [OF THE SIGN] THERE ARE SOME PRICES. [IT DATES FROM] BEFORE MY TIME. IT WAS DISPLAYED SOMEWHERE. MOST LIKELY IT WAS REMOVED PRIOR TO. AGAIN, IN THE OFFICE YOU HAD A ROOM WHERE THEY HAD SOME SUPPLIES AND THEY HAD SOME THINGS THAT WERE TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE AND THIS WOULD BE ONE OF THEM. I DON’T THINK IT WAS THERE AT THE VERY END.” FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, AND CORRELATED THIS ARTIFACT'S ORIGINAL LOCATION (THE "SNAKE ROOM" AT THE LETHBRIDGE BREWERY) WITH ARTIFACT P20120028003 AND THE ASSOCIATED INTERVIEW WITH DONOR LINDA LIPTAK, WHO WORKED THE BAR AND FOOD SERVICE THERE. SEE RECORD AND PERMANENT FILE P20120028003 FOR MORE INFORMATION AND A TRANSCRIPT OF LIPTAK'S INTERVIEW.
