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.

CAKE TOPPER ON THE WEDDING CAKE OF MARG DRUMMOND AND SAM MATHESON ON JULY 7TH 1967. (DONOR TOLD US 7TH, BUT COMMEMORATIVE NAPKIN & MATCHES MARKED 8TH?) *UPDATED* IN 2017 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT RUTHANN LABLANCE CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF CLOTHING, INCLUDING TWO WEDDING DRESSES DONATED BY SAM AND MARG MATHESON. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION WAS COMPILED FROM AN INTERVIEW CONDUCTED WITH THE DONORS. SAMUEL O. MATHESON AND MARGARET MATHESON (NEE DRUMMOND) WERE MARRIED IN JULY 1967 IN MARGARET’S HOME DOWN, MOOSOMIN, SK AT ST. ALBAN’S CHURCH. THEY HELD A SMALL RECEPTION IN THE CHURCH FOLLOWING THE CEREMONY, WITH 100 GUESTS. SAM SAID “THAT’S A SMALL TOWN. WHOEVER KNEW US CAME, I GUESS.” THE COUPLE HONEYMOONED AT EXPO ’67, DRIVING ALL THE WAY TO MONTREAL. MARGARET SAID THAT “IT WAS MORE INTERESTING THAN FUN, BECAUSE WE WERE GOING TO ALL OF THE PAVILIONS, SO IT WAS A LITTLE HECTIC – GETTING USED TO EACH OTHER, AND DOING THIS AT THE SAME TIME, BUT IT WAS GOOD.” MARGARET MET SAM, IN 1965, AFTER SHE LOCKED HERSELF OUT OF HER APARTMENT: “I LOCKED MYSELF OUT OF MY APARTMENT, WHICH WAS ON THE THIRD FLOOR. MY GIRLFRIEND LIVED NEXT TO ME, SO I THOUGHT THAT, IF WE COULD GET A MAN TO JUMP FROM HER BALCONY TO MINE, AND LET ME IN THROUGH THE DOORS – FRENCH DOORS ON OUR BALCONY.” SHE CONTINUED: “SO, I WENT UP TO THE FOURTH FLOOR AND HE ANSWERED THE DOOR AND SAID, SURE, HE WOULD DO IT.” SAM ADDED: “LIKE ONE OF THOSE MOVIES, YOU KNOW. CLIMB ON THE BALCONY, A HUNDRED FEET IN THE AIR … I CRAWLED OVER, BUT THEN MARGARET HAD LOCKED THE DOOR/ THE WINDOWS, AND WE COULDN’T GET INTO HER APARTMENT. THEY HAD TO FIND SOMEBODY TO GET INTO THE APARTMENT THROUGH THE REGULAR DOOR.” SHORTLY AFTERWARDS, THE BUILDING MANAGER CAME HOME AND LET MARGARET INTO HER APARTMENT. NOT LONG AFTER, THE TWO STARTED TO DATE. SAM TOOK HER TO A BINGO GAME. MARGARET SAID: “HE THOUGHT HE COULDN’T TAKE A TEACHER TO THE BAR, SO HE TOOK ME TO A BINGO GAME.” SAM WAS RAISED IN LETHBRIDGE, THE SON OF SAMUEL AND FLORENCE ISABELLE MATHESON (NEE OSGOOD): “I WAS BORN HERE, AND RAISED HERE, AND SPENT MY WHOLE LIFE, EXCEPT ABOUT 10 YEARS. I WAS IN THE AIR FORCE, AND ON THE DEW LINE, AND CAME BACK HOME. IT’S A PERFECT TOWN.” MARGARET, MEANWHILE, WAS RAISED IN MOOSOMIN, SK, THE DAUGHTER OF THOMAS AND MURIEL DRUMMOND, AND MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE FOR WORK: “I WAS A BIOLOGIST, AND THERE WAS AN OPENING HERE FOR A BIOLOGY TEACHER, SO I CAME AND TAUGHT SCIENCE AT WINSTON CHURCHILL. I CAME IN ’63, I GUESS, AND MET SAM IN ’65.” MARGARET CONTINUED TO TEACH AFTER THEY WERE MARRIED, UNTIL THEIR FIRST CHILD WAS BORN IN 1969. A SECOND CHILD FOLLOWED IN 1971 AND BY 1978, MARGARET WAS BACK TO TEACHING. MARGARET HAD THE FOLLOWING TO SAY ABOUT HER DRESS: “ACTUALLY I WAS UP IN EDMONTON, AND MY SISTER-IN-LAW HELPED ME BUY IT; COST ME A WHOLE $100.00. IN 1967 THAT WAS A LOT OF MONEY. I DON’T REMEMBER ANYTHING SIGNIFICANT ABOUT – I LOVED THE DRESS. WE WERE ALL INTO CHASTE THEN. I REMEMBER IT HAD A LONG TRAIN WHICH GOT CAUGHT ON ONE OF THE PEWS, AS I WAS GOING DOWN THE AISLE, BUT SAM’S BROTHER WAS AN USHER, SO HE GRABBED IT [BEFORE IT TORE]. HE SAW IMMEDIATELY WHAT HAD HAPPENED, SO I DIDN’T EVEN FEEL A TUG, BUT BUD TOLD ME AFTERWARDS THAT HE HAD DONE THIS.” MARGARET SAID THAT SHE DIDN’T TRY ON MANY DRESSES BECAUSE “I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS ONE, ALMOST RIGHT AWAY.” ONE OF MARGARET’S SISTERS WAS HER BRIDESMAID AND SHE WORE A BLUE DRESS: “IT WAS KIND OF A SHOT-SILK BLUE. OUR WEDDING COLORS WERE BLUE AND WHITE. SHE MADE HER DRESS. IT WAS LOVELY. AND THEN, OUR NIECE’S DAUGHTER WAS OUR FLOWER GIRL. SHE WORE AN IDENTICAL DRESS TO THE BRIDESMAID.” AT THE END OF THE INTERVIEW, SAM SAID: “WE’VE BEEN MARRIED MORE THAN WE’VE BEEN SINGLE. I DIDN’T GET MARRIED TILL I WAS 35, AND I FIGURED I’D NEVER GET MARRIED, BUT I MET MARG, AND WE GOT MARRIED, AND 50 YEARS LATER, HERE WE ARE.” MARGARET ADDED: “HERE WE ARE – BOTH IN OUR 80’S, AND LOVING IT.” SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR A COPY OF THE INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT.
