MUSEUM OBTAINED ITEMS FROM LETHBRIDGE EATON'S STORE IN 1999.

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.

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.

PURCHASED FROM ASH TEMPLE LTD. IN CALGARY IN THE 1960S AND WAS USED BY VAN CHRISTOU UNTIL 1987. DR. VAN CHRISTOU WAS BORN AND RAISED IN LETHBRIDGE. HE ATTENDED BOWMAN SCHOOL AND THE LETHBRIDGE COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE. IN 1943 HE BEGAN STUDYING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, AND IN 1948 RECEIVED THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF DENTAL SURGERY. AS A WINNER OF THE PRESTIGIOUS EASTMAN FELLOWSHIP HE COMPLETED 2 YEARS OF GRADUATE STUDY IN NEW YORK IN ORTHODONTICS AND PEDODONTICS. IN 1950 HE RETURNED TO LETHBRIDGE TO PRACTICE WITH DR. J.S. STEWART - ONE OF LETHBRIDGE'S FIRST DENTISTS - WHO BECAME HIS MENTOR. THEIR PRACTICE WAS LOCATED IN THE ORIGINAL BIGELOW FOWLER CLINIC BUILDING ON 7TH STREET SOUTH, WHICH WOULD LATER BE PURCHASED BY CHRISTOU AND MAYOR ANDY ANDERSON AND NAMED THE A-C BUILDING - PRESENTLY IT IS THE GLYN STREET PROFESSIONAL BUILDING. WHEN STEWART RETIRED IN 1951, CHRISTOU BOUGHT HIS EQUIPMENT AND "GOOD WILL" FOR $9,000. CHRISTOU USED STEWART'S EQUIPMENT HIS ENTIRE CAREER. DR. CHRISTOU WAS THE ONLY ORTHODONTIST IN LETHBRIDGE FOR 25 OF HIS 37 YEARS OF PRACTICE. PATIENTS CAME TO HIM FROM SOUTHEAST BRITISH COLUMBIA, SASKATCHEWAN AND NORTHERN MONTANA. HE WAS BOOKED AT LEAST A YEAR AND A HALF AHEAD AT ALL TIMES. DR. CHRISTOU'S PHILOSOPHY WAS TO KEEP THINGS SIMPLE. HE DIDN'T BELIEVE IN HIGH OFFICE OVERHEAD, BOTH IN TERMS OF EQUIPMENT AND STAFFING. HE HAD A RECEPTIONIST AND A DENTAL NURSE, WHO HE TRAINED HIMSELF. HE PRIDED HIMSELF ON PERSONALIZED TREATMENT AND HIS EXCELLENT TRAINING HAD EXPOSED HIM TO STATE-OF-THE-ART DENTAL EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES. EARLY ON, HE PURCHASED A CUTTING-EDGE CEPHALOMETER X-RAY MACHINE, THE ONLY ONE OF ITS KIND IN WESTERN CANADA FOR MANY YEARS. DR. CHRISTOU ALSO CUSTOM MADE EQUIPMENT THAT WAS NOT ON THE MARKET, SUCH AS A MOTOR-DRIVEN WATER SUPPLY AND SUCTION UNIT, SUPERIOR TO THOSE DRIVEN BY THE VENTURI-EFFECT. CHRISTOU WAS ALSO AN ACCOMPLISHED ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER, AND THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER ATTEMPTED TO CREATE LINKS BETWEEN ART AND DENTISTRY. FOR EXAMPLE, HE CREATED A STAINED GLASS U OF L CREST (WHICH HE DONATED TO THE UNIVERSITY) WHICH UTILIZED ORTHODONTIC WIRE. ALONG WITH JIM COUSINS HE DESIGNED THE U OF L CREST AND MOTTO "FIAT LUX". HE SERVED ON THE FIRST BOARD OF GOVERNORS AT THE U OF L AND LATER AS CHANCELLOR (1975), AND RECEIVED AN HONORARY DOCTOR OF LAWS DEGREE FROM THE UNIVERSITY. HIS MANY CONTRIBUTIONS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS ALSO INCLUDE: CHAIRMAN OF THE 1958 YMCA MEMBERSHIP DRIVE; PRESIDENT OF THE LETHBRIDGE & DISTRICT DENTAL SOCIETY FOR 1952-53; PRESIDENT OF THE ST.

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.

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. 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.
