CONTACT MADE WITH THE DONOR’S SON DID NOT YIELD FURTHER INFORMATION. ARCHIVAL RESEARCH INCLUDED LETHBRIDGE HERALD OBITUARIES FOR BOTH ARTHUR AND LOIS. ARTHUR DUFF WAS BORN AND RAISED IN STORMONT COUNTY, ONTARIO. HE MOVED WEST TO CRANBROOK IN 1907 BEFORE GOING OVERSEAS TO SERVE IN WORLD WAR I. UPON HIS RETURN, HE FARMED IN SANGUDO, ALBERTA BEFORE MOVING BACK TO CRANBROOK IN 1921. IN 1928, HE MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE, WHERE HE WAS EMPLOYED BY BECKER LUMBER COMPANY. HE WAS MARRIED TO LOIS JUNE DUFF (NEE CORNWALL). ACCORDING TO LOIS DUFF’S LETHBRIDGE HERALD OBITUARY, SHE WAS BORN IN MOINES, IOWA ON JUNE 26, 1904. THE FAMILY MOVED TO A FARM EAST OF MILK RIVER, ALBERTA IN 1908, THEN MOVING TO LETHBRIDGE 1919. SHE LIVED IN THE CITY FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE. THE CORNWALL FAMILY HISTORY SHE CONTRIBUTED IN THE PIONEER PEMMICAN CLUB ROUNDUP HISTORY BOOK (PUBLISHED IN 1984) STATES, “MY PARENTS, HERBERT AND ELLA CORNWALL AND THEIR FIVE CHILDREN – BERNICE, BEATRICE, BARTLEY, GERTRUDE, AND I (LOIS JUNE) CAME FROM DES MOINES TO WARNER IN NOVEMBER 1908. DAD AND BARTLEY FILED ON HOMESTEADS TEN MILES EAST OF MILK RIVER. THE FAMILY MOVED TO THE FARM IN THE SPRING OF 1910. I CAN REMEMBER SEEING BUFFALO BONES AND THOSE RANGE CATTLE SCATTERED OVER THE PRAIRIE.” THE NARRATIVE CONTINUED, “ON THE FARM WE HAD A LARGE TWO AND A HALF STOREY HOUSE WHICH SERVED AS A STOPPING PLACE FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN THE LUCKY STRIKE AND KIPPENVILLE AREAS BEFORE THE RAILROAD WAS BUILT TO FOREMOST AND MANYBERRIES. IT TOOK MEN FROM THOSE AREAS A DAY TO REACH OUR PLACE WITH A TEAM OF HORSES. THEY WOULD GO TO MILK RIVER AND BACK TO OUR PLACE THE SECOND DAY, THEN LEAVE FOR HOME THE THIRD DAY. WHAT A RELIEF IT WAS FOR THEM WHEN THE RAILROAD WAS BUILT!” “SLEEPY HOLLOW SCHOOL WAS BUILT IN 1912 AND, LIKE ALL SUCH STRUCTURES SERVED ALSO CHURCH SERVICES, MEETINGS AND ENTERTAINMENT. GRADES ONE TO TEN WERE TAUGHT IN THIS SCHOOL. IN THE FALL OF 1919 DAD, MOTHER AND I MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE SO THAT I COULD CONTINUE MY HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION AND ATTEND GARBUTT BUSINESS COLLEGE. I WORKED IN THE OFFICES OF RYLAND’S LADIES WEAR AND THE BECKER LUMBER COMPANY… I MARRIED ARTHUR DUFF IN 1934. OUR SON GRANT WAS BORN IN 1936.” ARTHUR DUFF PASSED AWAY IN LETHBRIDGE ON SEPTEMBER 15, 1976 AT THE AGE OF 85 YEARS. LOIS DUFF PASSED AWAY ON MARCH 18, 2004 AT THE AGE OF 99 YEARS.

DONOR SAYS PHOTOGRAPH PRESENTED TO HIS FAMILY FROM BARONESS COUTTS AT TURN OF CENTURY. *UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT THE DONOR, DICK COOK, WAS FOUND IN HIS LETHBRIDGE HERALD OBITUARY. AUSTIN DICK COOK WAS BORN IN 1922 TO CHARLES AND MARJORY COOK OF LETHBRIDGE. HE ENLISTED IN THE ROYAL CANADIAN AIR FORCE AFTER HIGH SCHOOL AND PILOTED HALIFAX AND LANCASTER HEAVY BOMBERS ON 22 MISSIONS IN EUROPE. AFTER THE WAR COOK STUDIED AGRICULTURE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA AND, RETURNING TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1955, WORKED FOR THE CIVIL SERVICE OF CANADA IN VETERANS LAND ADMINISTRATION AND SOCIAL ASSISTANCE AND OLD AGE PENSION DEPARTMENTS. HE EARNED THE RANK OF MAJOR IN THE ARTILLERY RESERVES AND WAS ACTIVE IN THE AIR FORCE ASSOCIATION. COOK WAS MARRIED TWICE AND HAD THREE SONS. HE DIED ON MARCH 26, 2006. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR HARDCOPY OF COOK'S OBITUARY. LIMITED INFORMATION WAS FOUND ON DICK COOK'S PARENTS, CHARLES WILLIAM AND MARJORY, AND NO CONNECTION BETWEEN THE FAMILY AND THE BARONESS BURDETT-COUTTS WAS MADE. ACCORDING TO AN ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE APRIL 29, 1963 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, CHARLES COOK DIED THAT MONTH AT THE AGE OF 75 - NO OCCUPATION IS LISTED, AND NO OBITUARY FOR MARJORY WAS FOUND. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY OF THE SUBJECT OF THE PHOTOGRAPH ON THIS ARTIFACT WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM THE WEBSITE OF THE GALT HISTORIC RAILWAY PARK, AND THE NOTABLE NAMES DATABASE ONLINE. ANGELA GEORGINA BURDETT-COUTTS WAS BORN IN LONDON IN 1814, THE DAUGHTER OF SIR FRANCIS BURDETT, A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT, AND SOPHIA COUTTS, DAUGHTER OF WEALTHY BANKER THOMAS COUTTS. AT AGE 23 ANGELA CAME INTO AN ANNUAL INCOME OF $400,000, AND REFUSED NUMEROUS OFFERS OF MARRIAGE, DEVOTING HERSELF TO PHILANTHROPY. SHE FUNDED NUERMOUS CHURCHES, SCHOOLS, HOUSING PROJECTS, RELIEF FUNDS FOR REFUGEES, AND ESTABLISHED ENGLAND'S NATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF THE CRUELTY TO CHILDREN IN 1883 AND THE ROYAL SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. BURDETT-COUTTS WAS RECOGNIZED BY QUEEN VICTORIA FOR HER BENEVOLENCE AND GIVEN THE TITLE BARONESS OF HIGHGATE AND BROOKFIELD, MIDDLESEX IN 1871. IN 1883 SHE MARRIED HER PERSONAL SECRETARY, AMERICAN WILLIAM ASHMEAD-BARTLETT, WHO WAS 40 YEARS HER JUNIOR. WILLIAM TOOK ON HER LAST NAME AND INVESTED HER MONEY INTO THE NEW BUSINESS VENTURE OF THEIR SOCIETY FRIEND AND CANADAN'S HIGH COMMISSIONER TO ENGLAND, SIR ALEXANDER GALT. WILLIAM PARTNERED IN GALT'S NORTHWEST COAL & NAVIGATION COMPANY, AND HE AND THE BARONESS WERE COMMEMORATED IN THE NAMING OF VILLAGES, VESSELS, AND STREETS THROUGHOUT SOUTHERN ALBERTA, THOUGH NEITHER EVER TRAVELLED TO CANADA. THE BARONESS LIVED TO THE AGE OF 92, DYING OF BRONCHITIS IN LONDON IN 1906. SHE IS BURIED IN WESTMINSTER ABBEY. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR HARDCOPIES OF SOURCE MATERIALS.

History
THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY OF THE ARTIST, JESSIE REDD URSENBACH, WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION PROVIDED BY RUTH DAW, DONOR OF OTHER WORKS BY URSENBACH TO THE GALT MUSEUM, AND THE REDD-URSENBACH FAMILY HISTORY COMPILED BY EPHRAIM HATCH, JESSIE URSENBACH’S SON-IN-LAW. JESSIE REDD WAS BORN IN NEW HARMONY, UTAH ON AUGUST 15, 1895, TO WILLIAM AND VERENA BRYNER REDD. SHE LIVED IN UTAH UNTIL 1905, WHEN THE REDD FAMILY MOVED TO CANADA. JESSIE WAS EDUCATED IN RAYMOND, GRADUATING FROM THE KNIGHT ACADEMY IN 1912. SHE ATTENDED SUMMER SESSIONS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA & THE ALBERTA NORMAL SCHOOL IN CALGARY, AND TAUGHT ART IN SCHOOLS IN RAYMOND, CARDSTON, AND GLENWOOD. JESSIE REDD MARRIED OCTAVE WILLI URSENBACH ON FEBRUARY 21, 1918, AND THEY RAISED FIVE CHILDREN – VERENA, WAYNE, CARMEN, GERALD, AND MARILYN. THE FAMILY LIVED IN LETHBRIDGE WHERE OCTAVE WORKED AT ELLISON MILLING CO. JESSIE WAS A FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE LETHBRIDGE SKETCH CLUB & HANDLED CLUB PUBLICITY FOR MANY YEARS. SHE ATTENDED THE BANFF SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS IN THE SUMMER OF 1937 ON A SCHOLARSHIP, AND CONTINUED PAINTING PROLIFICALLY FOR THE NEXT 11 YEARS UNDER THE DIRECTION OF PROFESSOR H.G. GLYDE. JESSIE ALSO RECEIVED ART TRAINING UNDER A.Y. JACKSON (GROUP OF SEVEN ARTIST), AND STUDIED AT THE ONTARIO COLLEGE OF ART IN TORONTO, STUDYING MODERN ART UNDER RODY COURTICES (THOUGH SHE PREFFERED THE MORE TRADITIONAL STYLES OF LANDSCAPE AND STILL LIFE). SHE WAS AFFILIATED WITH THE CANADIAN FEDERATION OF ARTISTS UNDER WHICH SHE EXHIBITED FROM COAST TO COAST, INCLUDING IN NEW YORK CITY AND CALIFORNIA. JESSIE TUTORED A LARGE CLASS OF PRIVATE PUPILS IN LETHBRIDGE FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS UNTIL SHE BEGAN THE VOCATION OF MATRON AT THE LATTER DAY SAINTS TEMPLE IN CARDSTON. JESSIE REDD URSENBACH DIED ON MAY 11, 1987. IN 1985, JESSIE URSENBACH WAS RECORDED LOOKING THROUGH THIS ALBUM ON VIDEO.

History
THIS OUTDOOR CHRISTMAS DECORATION SET, INCLUDING SANTA CLAUS, RUDOPLH, EIGHT REINDEER AND SANTA'S SLEIGH, WAS BUILT BY STEVE LEONARD, THE FATHER OF THE DONOR DON LEONARD, FOR THE FAMILY’S YEARLY OUTDOOR CHRISTMAS DISPLAY AT THEIR LETHBRIDGE HOME AT 828 12 ST NORTH. IN OCTOBER 2013, GALT MUSEUM COLLECTIONS TECH KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED DON LEONARD ABOUT HIS FATHER’S DECORATIONS AND THEIR MEANING FOR HIS FAMILY. LEONARD SAID: “[THE SET] WAS MADE IN THE MIDDLE 50S I BELIEVE BY MY DAD. IT’S WON SEVERAL AWARDS FOR BEST CHRISTMAS DISPLAY, BEST LIGHT DISPLAYS IN LETHBRIDGE, AND IT WAS A LOT OF HEART AND LOVE PUTTING INTO THAT DISPLAY AND MY PARENTS LOVED TO DO THE CHRISTMAS DISPLAYS EVERY YEAR THEY COULD. THEY COULDN’T WAIT TO GET THEM UP AND THAT IT’S REALLY A PART OF ME AND I COULDN’T THROW IT OUT AND I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT I WAS GOING TO DO. I HAVE MY OWN DISPLAY… IN THE U.S. THAT THEY BUILT FOR ME, IDENTICAL TO IT, SO YOU CAN SEE THE LOVE THEY HAD IN MAKING THESE DISPLAYS… I CAN ACTUALLY REMEMBER MY DAD DRESSED UP AS SANTA CLAUS ONE YEAR AND I CAME HOME AND HE WAS SITTING IN THE SLEIGH… I WAS KIND OF SHOCKED WHEN I CAME HOME AND SANTA CLAUS WAS IN THERE STACKED UP WITH PRESENTS… [DAD] DID A LOT OF WOODWORKING. EVERYTHING IN THE HOUSE HERE PRETTY WELL HE BUILT… THE REST OF THE HOUSE WOULD BE DECORATED IN LIGHTS AND THEY ALWAYS LIKED TO DO TWO RED, TWO GREE, TWO RED TWO GREEN OVER THE WHOLE HOUSE. AND ALSO BEFORE THAT, LATER ON, THERE WAS A CANDY CANE MADE OUT OF A STOVEPIPE… I HELPED THEM PUT THE DISPLAYS OUT UNTIL I WENT TO COLLEGE, YEAH UNTIL ’68… IT WAS PROBABLY IN THE TOP TEN BEST DECORATED HOUSES IN THE CITY EVERY YEAR FOR PROBABLY FOR TWENTY/TWENTY-FIVE YEARS. IT WAS OUTSTANDING THEY ADDED SOMETHING NEW EVERY YEAR, MORE LIGHTS, CHANGED THE COLOURS, CHANGED HOW THEY DID IT. THE WHOLE HOUSE WAS DECORATED: EVERY WINDOW, THE ROOF, THE CARPORT, SOMETIMES THE BUSHES. I MEAN IT WAS BIG TIME DECORATION, THEY LOVED TO DO IT. THEY HAD A LOT OF FUN DOING IT… IT WAS A GREAT ATTRACTION. I CAN REMEMBER COUNTING HUNDREDS OF CARS COMING BY AT NIGHT, STOPPING AND LOOKING AND TAKING PICTURES, PARENTS TAKING THEIR KIDS OUT OF THE CAR AND PUTTING THEM IN THE SLEIGH AND TAKING PICTURES WITH THEM. MY PARENTS JUST LOVED SEEING THAT HAPPEN… MY DAD LIKED, AND MY MOTHER TOO, BUILDING STUFF. HE LIKED BUILDING DISPLAYS, HE HAD, DURING THE SUMMER, HE DID RABBITS AND SHEEP AND PUT THEM AROUND ALL THE PLANTS. AND THEY TOOK A LOT OF PRIDE, AS MUCH AS YOU COULD EVER TAKE IN YOUR YARD. THEY’RE WINNERS OF AWARDS FOR THE BEST YARD IN THE SUMMER, BEST FLOWERS. THEY JUST TOOK A LOT OF PRIDE IN HOW THE HOUSE LOOKED… YOU JUST THINK OF WHAT THEY DID FOR YOU, IT WAS HOW THEY BROUGHT YOU UP; IT WAS HOW THEY WERE GENEROUS TO OTHER PEOPLE AND HOW THEY LOVED EVERYBODY… IT IS JUST THE GENEROSITY THEY GAVE TO EVERYBODY AND WANTED TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE OUT AND HAVE THE FUN TIME ENJOYABLE. MORE THAN THE SANTA CLAUS IT WAS A RELIGIOUS HOLIDAY FOR THEM TOO… I AM JUST SO HAPPY KNOWING THAT SOMEBODY CAN HOPEFULLY ENJOY IT FOR MANY MORE YEARS… IT WOULD MAKE THEM UNBELIEVABLY HAPPY.” FOR FURTHER INFORMATION AND A TRANSCRIPT OF THE INTERVIEW, SEE PERMANENT FILE.

GIFT FROM JAPAN DURING AN OFFICIAL VISIT. ACCORDING TO S.E. ASIAN CUSTOMS, IT IS REQUIRED THAT DURING AN OFFICIAL VISIT TO ANOTHER AREA, A GIFT IS BROUGHT TO THE HOST COUNTRY. THIS IS ONE OF THESE GIFTS FROM JAPAN. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING THOSE INITIALLY GIVEN TO THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE THROUGH VARIOUS EXCHANGES WITH CITIES IN JAPAN. LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM 1992, 1997, AND 1998 DETAIL THREE SEPERATE EXCHANGE PROGRAMS WITH HIKARI, SEKI CITY, AND KUROHONE-MURA, JAPAN. LETHBRIDGE CITY COUNCIL DECLINED HIKARI'S OFFER OF AN OFFICIAL TWINNING ARRANGMENT IN 1992 DUE TO BUDGET LIMITATIONS AND BECAUSE OF PRIOR TWINNING WITH OTHER CITIES INCLUDING SAINT-LAURENT, QUEBEC, CULVER CITY, CALIFORNIA, AND HENGSHUI CITY, CHINA. ST. FRANCIS JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL RAN A STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM WITH SEKI CITY FROM 1993 TO 2003 AND LETHBRIDGE COMMUNITY COLLEGE HOSTED STUDENTS FROM THE VILLAGE OF KURHONE ANNUALLY FROM 1994 TO 2006. DURING THESE EXCHANGES, DELEGATES FROM THE JAPANESE CITIES REGULARLY MET WITH LETHBRIDGE MAYOR DAVID CARPENTER AND GAVE CEREMONIAL GIFTS, AS IS CUSTOM IN JAPAN.
