NOMA. USED BY DONOR FOR MANY YEARS ON FAMILY CHRISTMAS TREE. REPLACED WITH MORE MODERN STRING. "WHEN 1 BULB BURNT OUT, ALL WENT OUT UNTIL THE BURNT OUT ONE WAS REPLACED." *** INFORMATION BELOW PROVIDED BY DONOR AT THE REQUEST OF THE GALT IN 2010. “THIS ORIGINALLY CAME FROM 'THE BOWLADROME'. WORKED THERE AS A PIN SETTER IN THE EARLY FORTIES, AND WAS GIVEN IT BY HARRY WILLIAMS WHO WAS THE MANAGER OF THE BUSINESS AT THAT TIME. (HARRY WROTE TEAM NAMES AND ALLEY INFORMATION ON A BLACKBOARD. HE HAD BEAUTIFUL HANDWRITING.)” *** *UPDATE* IN 2018 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN ARTIFACT SURVEY, INCLUDING A NUMBER OF ARTIFACTS DONATED BY IRMA DOGTEROM. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WAS ESTABLISHED THROUGH ARCHIVAL RESEARCH: “IRMA [DOGTEROM] WAS BORN IN LETHBRIDGE ON OCTOBER 3, 1930,” HER OBITUARY ON THE MARTIN BROTHERS FUNERAL CHAPELS WEBSITE STATES, “AFTER GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL SHE MET AND MARRIED JAKE DOGTEROM (1926-2015). THEY SET UP HOUSE ON THE FARM EAST OF LETHBRIDGE [IN 1950] AND CORAL, JAN, DAVE, AND NANCY SOON FOLLOWED.” ACCORDING TO JAKE’S OBITUARY, THE COUPLE MOVED INTO LETHBRIDGE IN 1988, THOUGH JAKE CONTINUED TO COMMUTE TO THE FARM TO WORK. THE OBITUARY STATES THAT SHE WAS A TWO-TIME RECIPIENT OF THE QUEEN’S JUBILEE MEDAL. FURTHER LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARCHIVAL SOURCES SPEAK ABOUT HER PASSION FOR LOCAL HISTORY, WHICH HAS BEEN ILLUMINATED THROUGH HER INVOLVEMENT OF NAMING THE STREETS AFTER SIGNIFICANT WOMEN FROM LOCAL HISTORY IN THE LEGACY RIDGE DEVELOPMENT IN NORTH LETHBRIDGE. IRMA DOGTEROM PASSED AWAY IN LETHBRIDGE ON AUGUST 5, 2014 AT THE AGE OF 83 YEARS. INFORMATION ABOUT THE BOWLADROME WAS LEARNED THROUGH ARCHIVAL RESEARCH. A LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED ON OCTOBER 8, 1940 PRIOR TO THE OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE NEWLY RENOVATED “HARRY’S BOWLADROME.” THE ARTICLE STATES THAT THE FACILITY WAS OWNED BY LEE AND GORDON BREWERTON OF RAYMOND AND CARDSTON AND WAS MANAGED BY HARRY WILLIAMS. THE RENOVATION RETAINED THE BOWLING ALLEY’S ORIGINAL LOCATION IN THE BAALIM BLOCK ON 6TH STREET SOUTH, BUT ADDED THE UPPER FLOOR TO THE BUSINESS. THE ARTICLE PROVIDES A DESCRIPTION OF THE FACILITY, INCLUDING A DESCRIPTION OF THE “MODERN MOTIF” EVIDENT IN THE DESIGN ELEMENTS. READERS ARE TOLD, “PRESENT INDICATIONS POINT TO THE BIGGEST YEAR BOWLING HAS EVER ENJOYED IN LETHBRIDGE.” A HERALD ARTICLE FROM 1951 STATES THAT THE BOWLADROME WAS “THE LARGEST ESTABLISHMENT OF ITS KIND IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA.” THIS ARTICLE PROVIDES A HISTORY OF THE BUSINESS, STATING THAT IT WAS FIRST OPENED BY HORACE BARRETT AND JAMES K. MOSSEY IN 1928. IN 1934, BARRETT SOLD HIS INTEREST IN THE BUSINESS TO HARRY CHAPMAN, AND IN THE LATE 1930S THE BREWERTON’S PURCHASED THE BUSINESS FROM THE PARTNERS. IN 1947, JOHN ACHTEM PURCHASED THE BUSINESS FROM THE BREWERTON’S. FOLLOWING A RENOVATION, ACHTEM SOLD THE BOWLADROME TO KURT GALLSTROM AND CLARENCE “KEG” BROWN. LETHBRIDGE HERALD RESEARCH INDICATES THAT THE BOWLADROME CLOSED AROUND THE MID TO LATE SEVENTIES. PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE P19920004001 FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE BOWLADROME, INCLUDING LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES. PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE P19930068001 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE FAMILY, INCLUDING FULL OBITUARIES AND LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES.

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.

MUSEUM OBTAINED ITEMS FROM LETHBRIDGE EATON'S STORE IN 1999. DUE TO COMPANY BANKRUPTCY, EATON'S STORES ACROSS CANADA WERE CLOSED, INCLUDING THE LETHBRIDGE LOCATION IN PARK PLACE MALL. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH THE T. EATON COMPANY STORES IN LETHBRIDGE. THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF LETHBRIDGE'S EATON'S STORE WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM GALT ARCHIVES AND LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM THE FALL OF 1988. THE T. EATON COMPANY WAS FOUNDED IN TORONTO IN 1869 BY TIMOTHY EATON. THE FIRST LETHBRIDGE EATON'S 'TECO' STORE WAS OPENED IN 1927 IN THE BASEMENT OF THE DOMINION BLOCK ON THE CORNER OF 4 AVENUE AND SIXTH STREET SOUTH. AFTER A FIRE, THE BUILDING WAS RENOVATED AND COMPLETELY TAKEN OVER BY THE EATON'S STORE, WHICH OPERATED IN THAT LOCATION UNDER PERIODIC RENOVATIONS FROM 1929 UNTIL THE OPENING OF THE PARK PLACE MALL IN 1988, IN WHICH EATON'S WAS AN ANCHOR RETAILER. IN 1989 A PORTION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE ART COLLECTION WAS TEMPORARILY PUT ON DISPLAY IN THE VACANT EATON'S BUILDING, AND PROPOSALS WERE MADE TO MAKE THE INSTALLATION PERMANENT, BUT EVENTUALLY THE PROPERTY WAS SOLD AND DEMOLISHED TO MAKE WAY FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BANK OF MONTREAL BRANCH. IN 1999 THE EATON'S STORE IN PARK PLACE MALL CLOSED JUST PRIOR TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE BANKRUPTCY OF THE LARGER T. EATON COMPANY LIMITED.

ART DECO INFLUENCE. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE DONATED AS PART OF THE ING ESTATE (P19950073023). SHE EXTRACTED THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ON THE ING FAMILY FROM PERMANENT FILE P19950073001, WHICH CONTAINS A TRANSCRIPT OF THE INTERVIEW COLLECTIONS TECH KEVIN MACLEAN CONDUCTED WITH HAROLD ING JR., SON OF HAROLD AND MYRA, IN HIS ROOM AT THE LETHBRIDGE HOTEL IN SEPTEMBER 2005. MYRA WAS BORN IN GOLDEN B.C.

"IN 1906 MY DAD [HAROLD ING SR.] LEFT HONG KONG FOR VANCOUVER, HE COULDN'T SPEAK ENGLISH... HE'S GOT TO BE A WAITER, A BUSBOY... AND HE LEARNED ALL THE WAY UP, IN THE MEANTIME PICKING UP ENGLISH... WENT TO WINNIPEG. THIS IS BEFORE ME. BY THEN HE KNEW THE WHOLE SYSTEM OF RESTAURANTING." MYRA AND HAROLD SR. MARRIED AND ADOPTED HAROLD JR. WHEN HE WAS BORN INTO A POOR FAMILY OF ELEVEN IN 1944, IN VANCOUVER. "ME AND MY TWIN SISTER WERE SOLD BECAUSE THERE WERE JUST TOO MANY. SO DAD, MY MOM PICKED ME AND DAD SAID YES THAT'S GOOD... I DON'T KNOW WHERE MY SISTER IS... THERE'S NO WAY OF FINDING OUT." THE ING FAMILY SETTLED IN LETHBRIDGE IN THE LATE 1940S, AND HAROLD SR. OWNS AND OPERATES THE NEW MOON CAFE AND TWO GROCERIES, WHICH ARE RUN BY THE FAMILY AND NEW CHINESE IMMIGRANTS THAT HAROLD SR. SPONSORED. "AT APPROXIMATELY FIVE YEARS OLD [MY FATHER] INTRODUCED ME TO THE NEW MOON CAFE, AND I WAS A BUSBOY AT THE AGE OF FIVE... IN 1951 HE SHOWED ME MY FIRST HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL... BECAUSE HE WAS THE OWNER... HE'D WAKE UP AT FIVE IN THE MORNING TO GO TO THE CAFE, OFF AND ON TO THE GROCERY STORE AND MIGHT BE DONE AT EIGHT AT NIGHT, SUPPER AND IMMEDIATELY TO CHINATOWN [FOR] GAMBLING, PUTTING DOWN MAH JONG." HAROLD JR. ATTENDED WESTMINISTER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DURING THE DAY, AND CHINESE SCHOOL AT THE CHINESE NATIONAL LEAGUE IN THE EVENINGS - HIS FATHER WAS THE PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL LEAGUE, AND THE ORGANIZATION RAN THE SCHOOL, CULTURAL CELEBRATIONS, FILM SCREENINGS, AND BANQUETS, FUNDED BY MEMBERSHIP FEES. HAROLD'S YOUNGER BROTHER, CALVIN, "GOT SENT TO A BOARDING SCHOOL SOMEWHERE. HE WAS GIFTED, BUT HE HAD A BYPASS SURGERY, HE HAD SOMETHING WRONG WITH HIS HEART. HE COULDN'T HANDLE PUBLIC SCHOOL, SO THEY SENT HIM TO B.C." AFTER HIGH SCHOOL AND A BRIEF STINT IN CALGARY, HAROLD JR. RAN ING'S GROCERY FOR HIS FATHER, AND IN THE LATE 1960S AND EARLY 70S ALSO WORKED AS A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND A SALESMAN AT SEARS. BOTH HAROLD SR. AND MYRA ING PASSED AWAY IN THE 1990S, AND THE OBJECTS ENCOMPASSING DONATION P19950073001-231 WERE COLLECTED FROM THE FAMILY HOME.

PART OF KEY/PUNCH FINGERPRINT SYSTEM; USED WITH ITEMS P19960112025,27-GA. FINGERPRINT CHARACTERISTICS WERE IDENTIFIED ON CARD BY PUNCHING TAB IN CODED BOXES AROUND CARD EDGE. KEY WAS SLOTTED THROUGH STACK OF CARDS, WHICH WAS SHAKEN OUT TO IDENTIFY MATCHING CHARACTERISTICS AMONG CARDS, WHICH COULD THEN BE FURTHER NARROWED BY REPEATING PROCESS. USED BY LETHBRIDGE POLICE BEGINNING IN 1984. HOLES PUNCHED ON THE EDGE OF THE CARDS IDENTIFIED THE MAIN FEATURES OF EACH PRINT. BY INSERTING THE RODS THROUGH STACKS OF CARDS AND SHAKING THE PILE, INVESTIGATORS ELIMINATED PRINTS UNTIL A MATCHING CLASSIFICATION WAS FOUND. RESULTS WERE THEN CONFIRMED BY A FINGERPRINT TECHNICIAN. NO TWO FINGERPRINTS HAVE EVER BEEN FOUND TO BE IDENTICAL IN EVERY DETAIL. FINGERPRINT EVIDENCE IS THEREFORE "THE MOST COMMON, MOST SOUGHT AFTER, POSITIVE AND VALUABLE OF ALL TYPES OF EVIDENCE ENCOUNTERED IN CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS" ACCORDING TO IDENT OFFICER GLEN MICHELSON. THE CARD SYSTEM WAS REPLACED BY THE AUTOMATIC FINGER IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM (AFIS), WHICH OFFERS LOCAL INVESTIGATORS ACCESS TO A COMPUTERIZED DATABASE IN CALGARY. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON MICHELSON'S IDENT CAREER, SEE P19960112027. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME DONATED BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICES.

THE LIGHT FIXTURE WAS TAKEN OUT OF THE MARQUIS HOTEL BEFORE ITS DEMOLITION IN 1988. EMIL GUNDLOCK A MORTGAGE BROKER WORKED WITH THE HOTEL'S OWNERS ,JOANNE AND BOB CORBET, TO REFINANCE THE HOTEL FOR IMPROVEMENTS. GUNDLOCK SAID, HOWEVER, THAT THE ROYAL BANK WOULD NOT APPROVE THE REFINANCING AND, SUBSEQUENTLY, TOOK OVER THE HOTEL'S MANAGEMENT. DISCUSSING THE FUTURE OF THE HOTEL OVER A DRINK (WHILE THE BAR WAS STILL IN OPERATION), CORBET AND GUNDLOCK DECIDED IT WOULD BE A "SHAME" TO SEE THE HOTEL'S ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS DESTROYED AND LOST AND, THUS THEY DECIDED TO REMOVE SOME OF THE HOTEL'S FIXTURES, DOORS (ELEVATOR), ETC. GUNDLOCK CLAIMED IT WAS ENOUGH TO FILL A "TRUCKLOAD". RBC, HOWEVER, LEARNED OF THE SALVAGE OPERATION AND DEMANDED THAT THE ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS BE RETURNED. GUNDLOCK KNEW SOME OF THE MATERIAL WAS RETURNED, BUT SOME WAS ALSO RETAINED. GUNDLOCK BELIEVED THAT THE MATERIAL ENDED UP IN THE RBC BANK MANAGER'S HOUSE. GUNDLOCK RECOGNIZED THE LAMP AND BOX THAT IT WAS PACKAGED IN, WHEN HE VISITED THE GALT IN EARLY 2007. SOMEHOW, THE FIXTURE CAME INTO POSSESSION OF TED STILSON WHO LATER PASSED IT ON TO THE DONOR IN 2005. GUNDLOCK WAS CONFIDENT THAT THE STYLE OF THE LAMP, IF NOT THIS VERY LAMP, WAS INSTALLED IN THE ROOM ATTRIBUTED TO SENATOR GLADSTONE WHO WAS THE FIRST NATIVE SENATOR AND FROM THE BLOOD RESERVE. THE ART DECO HOTEL OPENED IN 1928. IN ADDITION TO BEING THE FIRST BUSINESS IN LETHBRIDGE TO UTILIZE NEON SIGNAGE, THE HOTEL BOASTED AN ORIGINAL SEVENTY-EIGHT BEDROOMS AND A BANQUET AREA CAPABLE OF SEATING 250 PERSONS.

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 PRACTICED WITH DOCTORS DEVEBER AND CAMPBELL IN LETHBRIDGE FOR FIVE YEARS BEFORE JOINING THE ROYAL CANADIAN ARMY MEDICAL CORPS. 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.

History
*UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE ASSOCIATED WITH LETHBRIDGE MAYOR W. D. L. HARDIE, THE FATHER OF THE DONOR OF THIS ARTIFACT, JESSE MAXWELL OVERTON HARDIE. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY OF W. D. L. HARDIE WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM A TRIBUTE ARTICLE FROM THE JUNE 16, 1942 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. WILLIAM DUNCAN LIVINGSTONE HARDIE WAS BORN NEAR EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND IN 1862, AND THE FAMILY IMMIGRATED TO OHIO THE FOLLOWING YEAR. IN 1885 HARDIE MARRIED MARGARET KIRTLEY, AND THEY HAD FIVE CHILDREN: IANTHE, AGNES, E.W., JESSE, AND INZOLA. HARDIE FIRST CAME TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1889, WHEN HE BECAME THE ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT OF THE GALT NO. 1 MINE. AFTER FOUR YEARS HE RETURNED TO THE UNITED STATES, WORKING FOR MINING COMPANIES IN PENNSYLVANIA, TENNESSEE, AND ALABAMA BEFORE RETURNING TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1896 AS SUPERINTENDENT OF NORTHWEST COAL & NAVIGATION COMPANY. IN 1910 HARDIE LEFT THE GALT-OWNED COMPANY AND WORKED AS THE MANAGER OF THE DIAMOND COAL COMPANY UNTIL 1912, WHEN HE RAN FOR AND WON THE OFFICE OF LETHBRIDGE MAYOR. HARDIE SERVED AS MAYOR UNTIL 1928, WHEN HE WAS REPLACED BY ROBERT BARROWMAN. IN 1930 HARDIE HAD AN UNSUCCESSFUL RUN FOR THE LETHBRIDG SEAT IN THE PROVINCIAL GENERAL ELECTION. HARDIE WAS ACTIVE WITH THE LETHBRIDGE MASONS, THE ALBERTA UNION OF MUNICIPALITIES, AND HAD AN AVID INTEREST IN ASTROLOGY.
