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.

GIVEN TO MAYOR CARPENTER (1986-2001), BY THE MAYOR ZARATE OF ICA PERU IN 1995. THIS WAS A PERSONAL GIFT. THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE AND ICA PERU HAD A PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM WHICH FOCUSED ON DEVELOPMENT OF THE PERUVIAN CITY. UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS NOT PARTICULARLY SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE OF THE FREQUENCY AT WHICH THE BUREAUCRACY WAS REPLACED. EVERYTIME A NEW MAYOR WAS ELECTED (BY LAW A MAYOR COULD ONLY SERVE ONE TERM), THE ENTIRE BUREAUCRACY WAS REPLACED. THIS MEANT THAT ANYTHING THAT THE PREVIOUS WORKERS LEARNED WAS NOT KNOWN BY THEIR REPLACEMENTS AND SO, ANY TRAINING AND KNOWLEDGE LETHBRIDGE PROVIDED WAS NOT KEPT. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME ASSOCIATED WITH THE EXCHANGE BETWEEN ICA, PERU AND THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM BETWEEN ICA, PERU AND LETHBRIDGE WAS FOUND IN LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM JANUARY 30 AND OCTOBER 16, 1991. IN JANUARY 1991 THE MAYOR AND CITY DIRECTOR OF ICA, PERU VISITED LETHBRIDGE FOR 10 DAYS TO OBSERVE THE OPERATION OF VARIOUS CITY DEPARTMENTS THROUGH THE MUNICIPAL PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROJEXT. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM WAS TO MATCH MANAGERIAL AND TECHNICAL EXPERTS IN CANADIAN MUNICIPALITIES WITH THEIR COUNTERPARTS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. AT THE TIME OF THE EXCHANGE, ICA WAS A COMMUNITY OF 200,000 PEOPLE, WITH AGRICULTURE AND WINE PRODUCTION BEING ITS TWO LARGEST INDUSTRIES. A SECOND PERUVIAN DELEGATION VISITED LETHBRIDGE IN OCTOBER 1991, AND A THIRD WAS MEANT TO ARRIVE IN EARLY 1992, BUT NO ARTICLES WERE FOUND TO SUGGEST THAT THE PROGRAM CONTINUED FURTHER.

THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY OF JOB REED WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM AN ARTICLE ON THE REED FAMILY AND FARM FROM THE DECEMBER 30, 1985 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, REED'S DEATH ANNOUNCEMENT FROM 1906, AND THE GALT ARCHIVES.

REED PURCHASED TWO LOTS ON WHAT IS NOW 6TH AVENUE SOUTH. THE FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED A MARKET GARDEN ON THE PROPERY, AND BUILT A STONE DUPLEX THAT STILL STANDS ON THE 1200 BLOCK OF 6TH AVENUE. REED WORKED AS A COAL MINER TO EARN MORE MONEY TOWARDS INVESTING IN FURTHER LAND, AND RAISED PIGS WITH SCRAP FOOD FROM THE NEARBY RCMP BARRACKS. IN 1901, REED PURCHASED 2.5 SECTIONS OF LAND NEAR PRESENT-DAY GRANUM WITH HIS FOUR SONS AND ONE SON-IN-LAW; HIS SON BILLY LATER TOOK OVER THIS RANCH. REED WAS A JUSTICE OF THE PEACE IN LETHBRIDGE AND A MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL BOARD. IN EARLY 1906, HE PURCHASED EDGEHILL FARM, NEAR SIX MILE COULEE, BUT HE DIED LATER THAT YEAR ON APRIL 25. MARY REED LIVED AT THE FARM FOR YEARS AFTERWARD, AND DIED IN KELOWNA, B.C. IN 1932 AT HOME OF ONE OF HER SONS. BOTH JOB AND MARY REED ARE BURIED IN MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY IN LETHBRIDGE.

DOOR SET IS ONE OF TWO ENTRANCE DOOR SETS TO PARAMOUNT THEATRE CINEMA ONE. DOOR SET WAS REMOVED FROM THEATRE AFTER ITS CLOSURE IN 2007. ACCORDING TO JOEY SHACKLEFORD (GRANDSON OF A.W. SHACKLEFORD) IN 2010, THE PANE OF GLASS ON THE DOOR ALLOWED MANAGEMENT TO SEE WHEN THE LIGHTS WERE COMING ON. THIS FACILITATED THE PROCESS OF SWITCHING FROM THE EARLY VIEWING TO THE LATE VIEWING. THE LOBBY WOULD BE ROPED OFF AND THE PATRONS WOULD EXIT OUT THE SIDE DOOR. NEW PATRONS WOULD WAIT IN THE LOBBY UNTIL THE ROPES WERE TAKEN DOWN BEFORE ENTERING THE THEATRE. FOR MORE INFORMATION, SEE P20070023001 AND PERMANENT RECORD. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING A PORTRAIT OF ALFRED WILLIAM SHACKLEFORD (P20060025001-GA), OWNER OF THE SHACKLEFORD THEATRES. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY OF MAYOR SHACKLEFORD WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM ARCHIVES CANADA ONLINE AND A LETHBRIDGE HERALD TRIBUTE ARTICLE FROM MAY 31, 1992. A.W. SHACKLEFORD WAS BORN IN ESSEX, ENGLAND IN 1899 AND CAME TO CALGARY WITH HIS PARENTS IN 1909. AFTER HIGH SCHOOL HE TRAINED AS A DRAFTSMAN BUT WAS EMPLOYED BY THE FILM EXCHANGE AND FOX FILMS. IN 1921 HE WAS HIRED TO MANAGED THE KING'S THEATRE IN LETHBRIDGE AND BECAME ASSOCIATED WITH MARK ROGERS, A LETHBRIDGE BUSINESSMAN WHO OWNED THREE LOCAL MOVIE THEATRES. SHACKLEFORD ALSO BECAME PARTNER IN THE AMUSEMENT COMPANY THAT OPENED THE HENDERSON LAKE PAVILLION IN 1924. BY 1925 HE WAS PART-OWNER OF THE FORMER EMPRESS THEATRE ON 5TH AVENUE SOUTH, RENAMING IT THE ROXY. HE THEN TEAMED UP WITH THE FAMOUS PLAYERS COMPANY TO REMODEL THE FORMER PALACE THEATRE AND RENAME IT THE CAPITOL. SHACKLEFORD ALSO OPENED THE THEATRE IN THE FORMER COLLEGE MALL, BUILT THE 960-SEAT PARAMOUNT THEATRE ON 4TH AVENUE SOUTH, AND TOOK OVER OPERATION OF THE DIRVE-IN THEATRE AT THE SOUTH CITY LIMITS. SHACKLEFORD WAS HEAVILY INVOLVED IN CIVIC LIFE, ACTIVE IN GROUPS INCLUDING THE CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY, THE GYRO CLUB, UNITED WAY, LETHBRIDGE & DISTRICT EXHIBITION BOARD, BOARD OF TRADE, ST. AUGUSTINE'S CHURCH, AND THE ALBERTA THEATRE OPERATORS ASSOCIATION. HE AND HIS WIFE ADA HAD TWO SONS, ROBERT AND DOUGLAS. AFTER SEVERAL TERMS AS ALDERMAN STARTING IN 1939, SHACKLEFORD FIRST SERVED AS MAYOR FROM 1944 - 1947, AND FOR TWO MORE TERMS FROM 1952 - 1955 AND 1957 - 1961. HE WORKED FOR 68 YEARS IN THE MOVIE BUSINESS, RETIRING AT AGE 90. W.A. SHACKLEFORD DIED IN LETHBRIDGE ON MAY 30, 1992. SEE PERMANENT FILE P20060025001 FOR HARDCOPIES OF SOURCE MATERIAL.

THE DOOR WAS REMOVED FROM THE PARAMOUNT THEATRE IN 2007. ACCORDING TO JOEY SHACKLEFORD (GRANDSON OF A.W. SHACKLEFORD) IN 2010, THE DOOR WAS FROM THE PROJECTION BOOTH. THE BOOTH WAS NEAR A PRIVATE VIEWING AREA ON THE UPPER FLOOR OF THE THEATRE. THE DOOR HAD A HALF CIRCLE WINDOW. HARRY BOYSE, AND RICHARD FURUKAWA WERE TWO OF THE PROJECTIONISTS AT THE PARAMOUNT THEATRE. WHILE SHACKLEFORD SAID MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY WORKED ALMOST EVERY POSITION IN THE THEATRE THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF THEIR LIVES, THE PROJECTIONIST JOB WAS THE “ONLY THING WE NEVER DID BECAUSE IT WAS A UNION POSITION. YOU HAD TO WRITE EXAMS AND PUT IN A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF HOURS BEFORE YOU WERE QUALIFIED.” FOR MORE INFORMATION, SEE P20070023001 AND PERMANENT RECORD. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING A PORTRAIT OF ALFRED WILLIAM SHACKLEFORD (P20060025001-GA), OWNER OF THE SHACKLEFORD THEATRES.
