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. AT THAT TIME, SHE PROVIDED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT MANY OF THE INDIVIDUAL WORKS OF ART, INCLUDING MEMORIES ABOUT HER LIFE DURING THE TIME OF THEIR PRODUCTION. THE FOLLOWING TRANSCRIPT EXCERPTS ARE ORDERED WITH THE CATALOGUE NUMBERS OF THE ARTWORKS TO WHICH THEY PERTAIN. ONLY THE ARTWORKS TO WHICH URSENBACH DIRECTLY REFERRED ARE LISTED. URSENBACH SAID: “THERE ARE SOME THAT I HAVE KEPT, AND SOME I WANTED TO KEEP, AND DON’T WANT TO DISPOSE OF, SO WE’LL JUST GO THROUGH THEM AND TELL YOU WHAT THEY ARE.

I DON’T THINK I’D CALL IT A VERY BEAUTIFUL ONE NOW, BUT IT WAS THE BEST I HAD AT THAT TIME, AND I THOUGHT IT WAS THE BEST I HAD, AND HE SHOULD HAVE THE BEST. AFTER I WAS MARRIED, HE GAVE IT BACK TO ME AND I PUT IT IN MY SCRAPBOOK SO I COULD KEEP IT.” P20130022000.7-GA “THIS SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.

DONOR RECOVERED THE CUT OUT EAGLE FROM P.O.W. CAMP 133 IN LETHBRIDGE, MONTHS AFTER THE EVACUATION OF THE CAMP. IT CAME FROM A DESERTED MEDICAL BUILDING. DONOR WAS 13 AT THE TIME, AND LIVED ONLY BLOCKS FROM THE CAMP. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MILITARY OBJECTS, INCLUDING THOSE DONATED BY MIKE PROKOP. INFORMATION ABOUT THE DONOR WAS RETREIVED FROM HIS FUNERAL PROGRAM: "MIKE PROKOP, BELOVED HUSBAND OF LYDIA PROKOP OF LETHBRIDGE PASSED AWAY PEACEFULLY AFTER A LENGTHY ILLNESS ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2004 AT THE AGE OF 71 YEARS... MIKE WORKED MANY YEARS AT LETHBRIDGE BATTERY PRIOR TO OPERATING HIS OWN BUSINESS, GENERAL TOY & HOBBY CRAFT. MIKE WAS A MEMBER OF THE 32ND TECH SQUADRON R.C.E.M.E.

HE WAS A LIFETIME MEMBER OF THE ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION SERVING AS POPPY CHAIRMAN AND FIRST VICE." FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, SEE PERMANENT FILE. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON DEVELOPED THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF PRISONER OF WAR CAMP 133 WITH INFORMATION FROM THE GALT MUSEUM BROCHURE "LETHBRDGE'S INTERNMENT CAMPS" AND THE LIBRARY AND ARCHIVES CANADA WEBSITE. DURING WORLD WAR II THERE WERE 40 PRISONER OF WAR (P.O.W.) CAMPS CONSTRUCTED ACROSS CANADA TO HOUSE THE LARGE NUMBER OF INCOMING POWS - ENEMY MILITARY PERSONNEL THAT WERE CAPTURED IN COMBAT. CAMPS WERE BUILT IN ONTARIO, QUEBEC, THE MARITIMES AND ALBERTA. THE CAMPS IN LETHBRIDGE AND MEDICINE HAT WERE THE LARGEST, TOGETHER HOUSING 22,000 MEN. THE LETHBRIDGE CAMP, NO. 133, WAS BUILT IN THE SUMMER OF 1942, AND BY NOVEMBER OF THAT YEAR HOUSED 13,341 PRISONERS. THE CAMP WAS DIVIDED INTO SIX SECTIONS, EACH WITH SIX DORMITORIES, MESS HALLS, KITCHENS, AND ENTERTAINMENT FACILITIES. MEALS WERE IN SHIFTS WITH PRISONERS SERVING AS COOKS. TAILOR, BARBER AND SHOE REPAIR SHOPS WERE ALSO STAFFED BY PRISONERS, AND NON-COMBAT POWS PRACTICED THEIR PRE-WAR PROFESSIONS AS MEDICAL DOCTORS AND DENTISTS. HOUSING AND RATIONS WERE THE SAME STANDARD AS FOR THE CANADIAN ARMED FORCES, WHICH SOMETIMES CAUSED RESENTMENT AMONG LETHBRIDGE CIVILIAN RESIDENTS, WHO WERE UNABLE TO OBTAIN MANY OF THE SAME SUPPLIES ON THEIR STRICT WARTIME RATION ALLOWANCES. WITH MANY YOUNG LOCAL MEN AWAY AT WAR, LOCAL FARMERS BEGAN TO REQUEST LABOUR ASSISTANCE FROM THE CAMP, ESPECIALLY FOR THE SUGAR BEET INDUSTRY. BY 1943 AN AGREEMENT WAS REACHED AND SOME OF THE PRISONERS WORKED ON FARMS THROUGHOUT SOUTHERN ALBERTA. MOST OF THESE PRISONERS WENT FROM THE CAMP TO THE FARMS DAILY, BUT SOME WERE KEPT AT 'LODGES' AT THE MORE DISTANT FARMS FOR DAYS AT A TIME, WITH MINIMAL GUARDING. FOR THEIR LABOUR, THE PRISONERS WERE PAID 50 CENTS PER DAY. WITH WAR'S END, CAMP 133 CLOSED IN DECEMBER 1946 AND ITS PRISONERS WERE SENT BACK TO GERMANY. THE AREA WHERE THE CAMP STOOD EVENTUALLY BECAME AN INDUSTRIAL PARK AND PART OF THE FEDERAL AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH CENTRE.
