*UPDATE* IN 2012 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT DAVID SMITH CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MILITARY OBJECTS. HE WAS UNABLE TO RETRIEVE CONTACT INFORMATION FOR ORIGINAL DONOR. NO UNIQUE MARKINGS TO HELP IDENTIFY ORIGINAL OWNER. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING A PAINTING BY BRUCE BAIRNSFATHER, WHOSE CARTOONS ARE REPRODUCED ON THIS TEAPOT. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY ON THE ARTIST, BRUCE BAIRNSFATHER, WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM SPARTACUS EDUCATIONAL ONLINE: BRUCE BAIRNSFATHER WAS BORN IN MURREE IN THE PUNJAB PROVINCE OF PAKISTAN ON JULY 9, 1888. HIS FATHER, THOMAS BAIRNSFATHER, WAS A LIEUTENANT IN THE BENGAL INFANTRY. HE ATTENDED SCHOOL IN INDIA AND STRATFORD-UPON-AVON. BAIRNSFATHER INITIALLY JOINED THE BRITISH ARMY WHEN HE CAME OF AGE, BUT FOUND ARMY LIFE BORING AND ENROLLED AT THE HASSALL SCHOOL OF ART. AFTER GRADUATING HE WORKED IN ADVERTISING, PRODUCING POSTERS FOR PRODUCTS INCLUDING LIPTON TEA, PLAYER'S TOBACCO, BEECHAMS AND FLOWERS BEER. AT THE ONSET OF WWI BAIRNSFATHER REJOINED THE ROYAL WARWICKSHIRE REGIMENT AND WAS PROMOTED TO LIEUTENANT. HE WAS PUT IN CHARGE OR A MAXIM MACHINE GUN SECTION, AND SAW ACTION ON THE WESTERN FRONT. BAIRNSFATHER WAS SO SHOCKED BY TRENCH LIFE HE REFUSED TO TAKE LEAVE, FEARING THAT ONCE HE LEFT, IT WOULD BE TOO DIFFICULT TO RETURN. DURING THE CHRISTMAS OF 1914, HE WAS NEARLY COURT-MARTIALED AFTER JOINING GERMAN SOLDIERS IN WHAT LATER BECAME KNOWN AS THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE. WHILE ON THE WESTERN FRONT, BAIRNSFATHER DREW PICTURES OF TRENCH LIFE THAT WERE PUBLISHED IN THE BYSTANDER MAGAZINE. IN 1915, DURING THE SECOND BATTLE OF YPRES, HE WAS EXPOSED TO CHLORINE GAS AND WOUNDED BY A SHELL EXPLOSION. DURING HIS CONVALESCENCE AT LONDON GENERAL HOSPITAL, BAIRNSFATHER PRODUCED WEEKLY DRAWINGS FOR THE BYSTANDER, WHICH WERE LATER INCLUDED IN HIS BOOK SERIES CALLED 'FRAGMENTS FROM FRANCE'. AFTER REGAINING HIS HEALTH, CAPTAIN BAIRNSFATHER WAS SENT TO TRAIN NEW RECRUITS ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT. DURING THIS PERIOD, HE CREATED HIS SIGNATURE CARTOON CHARACTER, OLD BILL. HIS CARTOONS WERE EXTREMELY POPULAR WITH SOLDIERS IN THE TRENCHES, AND OLD BILL APPEARED IN MANY FORMS, INCLUDING PLAYS, MUSICALS, FEATURE FILMS, COMIC STRIPS, AND ON POTTERY, PLAYING CARDS, POSTCARDS AND OTHER MERCHANDISE. AFTER THE WAR, BAIRNSFATHER TOURED ON THE SUCCESS OF OLD BILL, VISITING VETERAN'S LEGIONS ACROSS NORTH AMERICA. DURING WWII HE WAS APPOINTED AS AN OFFICIAL CARTOONIST TO THE AMERICAN FORCES IN EUROPE. BRUCE BAIRNSFATHER DIED OF COMPLICATIONS RESULTING FROM CANCER TREATMENTS ON SEPTEMBER 29, 1959. SEE PERMANENT FILE P20000047006 FOR HARDCOPY OF BAIRNSFATHER'S BIOGRAPHY AND EXCERPTS FROM HIS BOOK 'BULLETS AND BILLETS' (1916) AND HIS RECOLLECTIONS ON THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE AND THE BATTLE AT YPRES.

ITEM BELONGED TO DONORS MOTHER, OTO KANASHIRO (1906-1992). KANASHIRO WAS BORN ON A SUGAR CANE FARM IN THE SEMI-TROPICAL ISLAND OF OKINAWA AND MARRIED BOKUJIN KANASHIRO IN YOMITAN, OKINAWA, JAPAN IN 1930. AFTER THEY MARRIED, MR. KANASHIRO, RETURNED TO HIS HOME IN HARDIEVILLE, ALBERTA. MRS. KANASHIRO WENT TO OSAKA TO WORK IN A SILK FACTORY AND WAITED HER TURN TO BE ALLOWED INTO CANADA. AT THIS TIME THE NUMBER OF NEW JAPANESE IMMIGRANTS WAS RESTRICTED. IN OSAKA, SHE LEARNED TO CARE FOR SILKWORM COCOONS, SPIN YARN, AND TO WEAVE VERY FINE SILK. AFTER THREE YEARS, MRS. KANASHRIO MADE THE DIFFICULT THREE WEEK JOURNEY TO CANADA BY BOAT, ARRIVING AT HER NEW HOME IN HARDIEVILLE, ALBERTA. SHE CAME TO SETTLE IN THE SMALL COMMUNITY OF APPROXIMATELY 50 OKINAWA FAMILIES. SHE QUICKLY LEARNED TO MANAGE HER DOMESTIC LIFE AND FOUND HER MAIN SUPPORT FROM THE WOMEN IN THE COMMUNITY AND HER EXTENDED FAMILY, IN PARTICULAR HER SISTER- IN-LAW, USHI KANASHIRO WHO TAUGHT HER HOW TO MAKE BREAD. OVER TIME, SHE PERFECTED THE ART OF BREAD MAKING, BAKING FIVE TO EIGHT LARGE LOAVES AT A TIME TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF HER GROWING FAMILY. SHE MADE THE BREAD FROM YEAST, WHEAT FLOUR AND USED LIQUID FROM BOILED POTATOES. SHE USED THE LARGE ENAMEL BOWL WITH THE LID TO MIX THE DOUGH AND ALLOW IT TO RISE. WHEN THERE DOUGH ROSE SEVERAL INCHES ABOVE THE RIM OF THE BOWL, IT WOULD BE PUNCHED DOWN AND LEFT TO RISE ONCE MORE. THE DOUGH WAS SHAPED INTO LOAVES AND PLACED THREE TO A PAN AND TWO FOR THE SMALLER BREAD PAN THEN BAKED IN THE OVEN OF HER COAL BURNING STOVE. FOR VARIETY, SHE WOULD MAKE CINNAMON BUNS OR DINNER BUNS FROM THE SAME BREAD DOUGH. OCCASIONALLY SHE USED THE BREAD DOUGH AND CUT OUT DONUT RINGS, DEEP FRY IT THEN COAT IT WITH SUGAR. SHE ALSO MADE KARINTO WITH THE BREAD DOUGH (SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO MAKE KARINTO). MRS. KANASHIRO BAKED BREAD USING THIS EQUIPMENT UNTIL THE 1960S WHEN HER CHILDREN LEFT HOME ONE BY ONE. SHE STILL OCCASIONALLY BAKED BREAD BUT IT WAS ONE OR TWO LOAVES AT A TIME USING SMALLER KITCHEN BOWLS AND PANS. FOR FAMILY IMAGES, PLEASE SEE RELATED ARCHIVAL DONATION 20091011000. PHOTOCOPIES OF PHOTOS CAN BE FOUND AS PART OF THIS DONATION'S PERMANENT FILE. REYKO NISHIYAMA'S STORY OF HER MOTHER BAKING BREAD CAN ALSO BE FOUND IN THE PERMANENT FILE.

History
USED FOR BEDRIDDEN PATIENTS. TRAY APPEARS MORE MODERN THAN STAND. STAND IS DESIGNED TO ROLL UNDER BED WITH TRAY POSITION OVER THE BED. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE ROY CLINIC. THE FOLLOWING HISTORY OF THE ROY CLINIC WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM GALT ARCHIVES, DR. 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. ROY WAS BORN IN MOOSOMIN, SASKATCHEWAN IN 1888. AFTER RECEIVING HIS EARLY EDUCATION THERE, HE PURSUED MEDICINE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, WHERE HE EARNED A BACHELOR OF MEDICINE IN 1911. AFTER COMPLETING AN INTERNSHIP AT THE ROYAL VICTORIA HOSPITAL IN MONTREAL, FOCUSING ON SURGERY AND PATHOLOGY, DR. ROY MOVED TO ALBERTA IN 1913. 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. THE CLINIC MOVED TO 2ND AVENUE SOUTH IN 1959, AND OPERATED THERE UNDER THE ROY NAME UNTIL BECOMING THE PARK MEDICAL GROUP IN THE LATE 1980S. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR HARCOPIES OF DR. LOUIS A. ROY'S OBITUARY AND RELEVANT PAGES OF MCDOUGALL AND HARRIS' BOOK.
