UNIFORM WAS WORN BY DONOR'S FATHER, ARTHUR BEATON, IN 1946, AS PART OF THE NEW DAYTON INTERMEDIATE BASKETBALL TEAM, THE RAMBLERS. THE START OF BASKETBALL IN NEW DAYTON WAS IN 1909, WITH A BASKETBALL HOOP ERECTED IN ONE OF THE GRAIN ELEVATORS FOR PRACTICE. THEN IN 1917 A LIVERY BARN WAS CONVERTED INTO A HALL PROVIDING A PLACE FOR BASKETBALL, UNTIL 1930 WHEN A NEW STADIUM WAS BUILT. THIS GAVE BIRTH TO HIGH SCHOOL BALL FOR THE BOYS AND GIRLS. IT TOOK ALL OF THE BOYS, OR GIRLS, FROM GRADE NINE THROUGH TWELVE, OF THE NEW DAYTON HIGH SCHOOL, TO MAKE UP A TEAM. AFTER THE WAR, IN 1945, AN INTERMEDIATE BASKETBALL TEAM KNOWN AS THE RAMBLERS WAS STARTED. IN 1946 THEY WON THE SOUTHERN ALBERTA CHAMPIONSHIP, AND WENT TO CALGARY FOR THE PROVINICIALS. THERE THEY WON THE PROVINCIAL INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONSHIP, WITH ALMOST ALL OF NEW DAYTON CHEERING THEM ON. THE TEAM THAT WON THE CHAMPIONSHIP CONSISTED OF DON AND ALLAN DUNCAN, TOM CRONKHITE, ART BEATON, LARRY ATKINS, GRANT AND JOHN CARNINE, ROME MUELLER, DAVE SIEWERT, LLOYD SKEITH, AND PLAYING COACH REX CAHOON. THE HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM IN NEW DAYTON DIED ALONG WITH THEIR HIGH SCHOOL IN 1959. ART BEATON WAS BORN MAY 24, 1918, ON THE MACDONALD FARM AT NEW DAYTON, HE ATTENDED SCHOOL IN NEW DAYTON AND TOOK AN ACTIVE PART IN ALL SCHOOL SPORTS, INCLUDING BASEBALL AND RODEO, AS WELL AS BASKETBALL. ART FARMED WITH HIS FATHER FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, BUT ALSO FOUND OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT HIMSELF AND HIS FAMILY. HE AND HIS BROTHER-IN-LAW, JEROME ROAN, HAULED ICE FOR NEW DAYTON, AS WELL AS COAL, HAY AND OATS. THEY ALSO SHOT RABBITS AND SOLD THE PELTS FOR 15 CENTS A PIECE. ART HELPED BUILD ANNEXES AND REPAIRED ELEVATORS, AND IN 1940 HELPED BUILD THE FRANK O'DOUD HOUSE. ART, ALONG WITH 3 OTHER MEN, WORKED FOR TWO YEARS TO GET IRRIGATION IN NEW DAYTON AND SUCCEEDED IN 1970. IN OCTOBER, 1942 ART MARRIED RETA ELIZABETH QUEENER. THEY LIVED ON ART'S FATHER'S FARM FOR TWO YEARS, THEN BUILT A HOME AND MOVED TO THE FARM THAT WOULD LATER BE OWNED BY THEIR SON JERRY. BECAUSE ART PARTICIPATED AND EXCELLED IN MOST SPORTS HE TOOK HIS TURN AT TRAINING, COACHING AND CHAUFFERING THE NEXT GENERATION. HE SERVED ON THE BOARD OF THE GOLF AND GUN CLUB AND WON TWO SILVER TRAYS IN TRAP SHOOTING. HE WAS ALSO ONE OF THE GROUP OF FOUR WHO INSTIGATED CURLING IN NEW DAYTON. HE SERVED SEVERAL YEARS ON THE UNITED CHURCH AND SCHOOL BOARDS, AND HELPED WITH CUBS AND SCOUTS WHEN NEEDED. HE AND HIS WIFE ALSO DONATED THEIR TIME AND EFFORTS WILLINGLY TO ALL COMMUNITY PROJECTS. ART AND RETA HAD THREE CHILDREN, BILL, JERRY AND JUDY (DONOR). IN 1967 ART, RETA AND THEIR SON BILL MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE, BUT WOULD RETURN TO NEW DAYTON IN 1976 TO LIVE IN A NEW HOME ON THE FARM. THEY FARMED UNTIL 1986. IN 1992 ART AND RETA MOVED TO WETASKIWIN TO LIVE WITH HIS DAUGHTER JUDY AND HER HUSBAND. ART PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 82 ON APRIL 9, 2002, AND HIS WIFE RETA PREDECEASED HIM. DONOR WAS BORN IN NEW DAYTON IN 1949. SHE TOOK NINE YEARS OF SCHOOL THERE AND HIGH SCHOOL IN LETHBRIDGE.

WON BY LETHBRIDGE CROWSNEST LEAGUE, JANUARY 1 1903 - LACROSSE CUP. *UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE DONATED BY THE SAME DONOR AS THIS TROPHY, THE CHINOOK CLUB OF LETHBRIDGE. THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CLUB WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM ALEX JOHNSTON'S BOOK 'HISTORY OF THE CHINOOK CLUB, 1901-1987', PUBLISHED BY THE LETHBRIDGE HISTORICAL SOCIETY IN 1988, AND LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM 1993 AND 2000. THE CHINOOK CLUB WAS A MEN'S SOCIETY AND SOCIAL CLUB FOUNDED BY PROMINENT LETHBRIDGE BUSINESSMEN IN 1901. AT ITS FIRST MEETING ON NOVEMBER 7, 1901, 22 MEMBERS ENROLLED IN THE CLUB, INCLUDING C.F.P. CONYBEARE, DR. F.H. MEWBURN, C.B. BOWMAN, FRED DOWNER, AND CHARLES A. MAGRATH. THE CLUB INITIALLY ADOPTED THE ORIGINAL LETHBRIDGE PUBLIC SCHOOL HOUSE AT THE CORNER OF 7 STREET AND 4 AVENUE SOUTH AS ITS HEADQUARTERS, ACQUIRING THE LAND FROM ELLIOT GALT'S NORTH WESTERN COAL AND NAVIGATION COMPANY. THE CLUB RESIDED AT THAT ADDRESS UNTIL 1944, WHEN MEMBER FRED DOWNER SOLD HIS FAMILY HOME, WESTMINSTER HOUSE, AT 3 AVENUE AND 13 STREET SOUTH TO THE ORGANIZATION. THE CHINOOK CLUB OPERATED OUT OF WESTMINSTER HOUSE UNTIL ITS MEMBERSHIP DWINDLED DURING THE 1980S AND THE BUILDING'S MAINTENANCE COSTS OUTWEIGHED ITS VALUE TO THE CLUB, LEADING TO ITS SALE IN 1993. THE BUILDING WAS MOVED SOUTH DOWN MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE, WHERE IT HOUSED A BED & BREAKFAST AND, AT THE TIME OF THIS SURVEY, IS OWNED BY THE LAND DEVELOPER OF PRAIRIE ARBOUR ESTATES. THE CHINOOK CLUB ALSO OPENED UP ITS MEMBERSHIP TO WOMEN IN 1993, CITING ITS DESIRE TO MOVE FORWARD INTO THE 21ST CENTURY WITH YOUNG PROFESSIONALS OF LETHBRIDGE, BUT BY 2000, HAD CEASED OPERATIONS DUE TO A LACK OF MEMBERSHIP.

THIS ARMBAND RELATES TO THE 2010 OLYMPICS IN VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA. IN AN INTERVIEW WITH ITS DONOR ANINE VONKEMAN, CONDUCTED BY KEVIN MACLEAN IN JUNE 2015, SHE SAID I “WAS HONOURED TO BE ACCEPTED AS A VOLUNTEER, A MEDIA HANDLER VOLUNTEER, ALONG WITH BOB COONEY FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE COMMUNICATIONS AT THE TIME, WHO I REALLY RESPECT AND HE’S RESPECTED BY THE LOCAL MEDIA. AND SO HE AND I WORKED TOGETHER TO BE THE MEDIA HANDLERS FOR THE TORCH RELAY, WHICH IS A HUGE EVENT ... FROM A LOGISTICAL POINT OF VIEW AND IN TERMS OF DEALING WITH MEDIA IN THAT WAY. LIKE WE DO MEDIA PREVIEWS OF OUR EXHIBITS AND THEY’RE JUST TINY COMPARED TO WHAT AN UNDERTAKING THIS IS, BECAUSE IT WAS TELEVISED NATIONALLY AND ALL OF THAT AND ALL THE INFRASTRUCTURE THAT WAS SET UP FOR THE CELEBRATION AT HENDERSON LAKE.” THE ARMBAND ALLOWED ANINE ENTRY TO THE MEDIA PIT AND VOLUNTEER TENT AT HENDERSON LAKE. ANINE CONTINUED, SAYING THAT SHE WAS “EXCITED ABOUT BEING PART OF THE TORCH RELAY AND BECAUSE THE OLYMPICS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A HUGE PART OF MY LIFE AND SPORTS EVENTS IN GENERAL, DUTCH PEOPLE GO A LITTLE NUTS. SO, YOU KNOW, TO BE ABLE TO BE A PART OF THAT AND ALSO TO DEAL WITH THE MEDIA IN THAT WAY, WHICH WAS A BIG DEAL, WAS KIND OF REALLY INTERESTING.” ANINE KEPT THE ARMBAND, SAYING “IT’S AN IMPORTANT REMINDER OF BEING PART OF THAT. AND IT WAS AN IMPORTANT EVENT IN LETHBRIDGE TO BE ON THE TORCH RELAY ROUTE FOR THE OLYMPIC FLAME.” ANINE ATTENDED THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE (U OF L) IN 1986 AND STARTED WORKING AT THE SAAG IN 1992, TWO WEEKS AFTER GRADUATING FROM THE U OF L. SHE BEGAN AS THE PUBLIC PROGRAMS COORDINATOR AND “WAS DOING MEDIA STUFF, VOLUNTEER COORDINATION, SPECIAL EVENTS COORDINATION AND STARTED THE ART AUCTION.” BY 2004, SHE WAS WORKING AT THE GALT AS MARKETING/COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER.

PART OF KEY/PUNCH FINGERPRINT SYSTEM; USED WITH ITEMS P19960112025,26-GA TO COMPARE A PARTIAL FINGERPRINT FOUND AT A CRIME SCENE WITH AN ORIGINAL SET OF PRINTS PROVIDED BY THE ACCUSED. 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. IT IS CLAIMED THAT THE CARDS WERE "SIGNED BY MEMBERS SUCH AS CST. TERRY TOWNSEND AND GORD SCHEURMAN". FOR MORE INFORMATION ON MICHELSON'S IDENT CAREER, SEE ARTIFACT'S PERMANENT FILE. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME DONATED BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICES.

BELONGED TO DONOR. *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.
