ITEMS WERE CONTAINED IN A TRUNK BELONGING TO THE DONOR'S MOTHER, WHO WAS BORN IN 1902 AND WAS RAISED ON A DOUKHOBOR COMMUNE UNTIL SHE AND FRED EVDOKIMOFF LEFT WHEN THEY WERE 18 YEARS OLD TO GET MARRIED. MANY OF THE ITEMS DATE BACK TO THE EARLY 1900'S, WHILE OTHERS ARE MODERN AND DATE TO THE 1980'S. DONOR'S PARENTS MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1952. MRS. EVDOKIMOFF DIED IN 1986 AT THE AGE OF 84 YEARS OLD. *UPDATE* NICOLE HEMBROFF, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT, MET WITH DONOR WALLY EVDOKIMOFF IN 2010 TO DISCUSS HIS DONATION OF THE TRUNK AND ITS CONTENTS. SEE BELOW. ACCORDING TO EVDOKIMOFF, THE APRON WOULD HAVE BEEN WORN AS PART OF THE TRADITIONAL DOUKHOBOR COSTUME. HE SAID, "CLEARLY YOU WOULDN'T COOK IN SOMETHING LIKE THAT, THAT WAS FOR DRESS." HIS MOTHER WOULD HAVE WORN THE APRON FOR SPECIAL OCCAISIONS AND WHEN SHE WAS STILL LIVING IN THE DOUKHOBOR COLONY. HE SAID, "ONCE MY MOM WAS OUTSIDE THE COLONY, I WOULD NEVER SEE HER WEAR SOMETHING LIKE THIS, EXCEPT IF, MAYBE, THEY WENT TO SOME OF THE FESTIVALS. EVEN THEN, IT'S MORE OF A MEMORY OF WHAT IT WAS LIKE WHEN THEY WERE KIDS..." SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION. *UPDATE* IN 2018, COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF BOXED TEXTILES AND ACCSSORIES, INCLUDING A TOILET SET AND JACKET DONATED BY WALLY EVDOKIMOFF. DURING A PHONE CONVERSATION WITH PUNDYK IN 2018, EVDOKIMOFF STATED HIS FAMILY LIVED IN YORKTON, SASKATCHEWAN AND BRILLIANT, BRITISH COLUMBIA. THEY WERE MOST LIKELY A PART OF THE DOUKHOBOR COMMUNITIES IN THOSE AREAS. HE CONFIRMED THAT HIS PARENTS FIRST ARRIVED IN ALBERTA IN 1952.

GLADYS CLAY WAS RAISED ON A FARM OUTSIDE OF LETHBRIDGE AND ATTENDED SCHOOL IN A ONE ROOM SCHOOL HOUSE IN CRYSTAL LAKE. AT THE AGE OF 14 SHE WAS SENT TO LETHBRIDGE TO LIVE WITH HER GRANDMOTHER SO THAT SHE COULD ATTEND LETHBRIDGE COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE. ON NOVEMBER 17, 1945 GLADYS WAS MARRIED TO DONALD “DON” CLAY.

ALICE WAS MARRIED TO OSCAR WILLETS ON SEPTEMBER 30, 1919. SHE WAS THE DAUGHTER OF ALBERT ARNOLD AND ALICE MATILDA ARNOLD (MAIDEN NAME UNKNOWN). ALICE WILLETS PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 85 ON AUGUST 26, 1982. ALICE MATILDA ARNOLD (MAIDEN NAME UNKNOWN) WAS BORN IN HAVERSHAM, KENT, ENGLAND AND MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE IN 1910. SHE PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 82 IN AUGUST 1957. ALBERT ARNOLD PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 50. AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE HERALD ON JULY 31, 1924 RECOUNTS THE ACCIDENT THAT CAUSED HIS DEATH: “THE DEATH OF ALBERT ARNOLD … AN EMPLOYEE OF THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT, OCCURRED LAST NIGHT AT 9:45 AT THE GALT HOSPITAL. MR. ARNOLD WAS ENGAGED IN TRIMMING TREES IN FRONT OF 649 12TH ST., WHEN HE FELL FROM THE LADDER ON WHICH HE WAS WORKING AND STRUCK THE SIDEWALK WITH HIS HEAD, BEING RENDERED UNCONSCIOUS, FROM WHICH STATE HE NEVER EMERGED. HE WAS TAKEN TO THE GALT HOSPITAL WHERE AN EXAMINATION REVEALED A SLIGHT FRACTURE OF THE SKULL. HE WAS OPERATED ON IN THE AFTERNOON IN AN ATTEMPT TO TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF HIS BRAIN CAUSED BY THE FRACTURE, BUT WITHOUT SUCCESS, AND HE DIED AT 9:45PM. MR. ARNOLD, WHO WAS FIFTY YEARS OF AGE, HAD BEEN IN THE CITY THIRTEEN YEARS AND HAD BEEN EMPLOYED BY THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT ON AND OFF FOR SEVERAL YEARS. ONLY THE DAY BEFORE HE HAD CELEBRATED THE THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF HIS MARRIAGE.” ANOTHER ARTICLE FROM AUGUST 1, 1924 DISCUSSES THE ACCIDENT FURTHER: “AT AN ENQUIRY HELD ON THURSDAY AFTERNOON BEFORE MAGISTRATE BARKER AS TO WHETHER AN INQUEST ON THE DEATH OF ALBERT ARNOLD WOULD BE NECESSARY, THE MAGISTRATE DECIDED THAT IT WAS A CASE OF ACCIDENTAL DEATH. ACCORDING TO THE EVIDENCE GIVEN, DECEASED ON HAD A 13 FOOT FALL FROM THE POINT OF THE LADDER ON WHICH HE WAS STANDING AT THE TIME HE WAS CUTTING TREES ON TWELFTH ST. SOUTH. GEORGE EDWARDS, WHO WAS HOLDING THE LADDER FOR THE DECEASED, DEPOSED TO HIS HAVING A STRONG GRIP ON IT AND TO ITS NOT SLIPPING. THE DECEASED WAS PRUNING OFF THE LIGHT BRANCHES WITH A PRUNING HOOK AND WAS NOT USING A SAW. ANYTHING OF THE THEORY OF HIS BEING ELECTROCUTED BY THE ELECTRIC WIRES WAS DISSIPATED BY THE EVIDENCE OF ED THEOBALD OF THE CITY ELECTRIC DEPARTMENT, WHO SAID THAT THE WIRE WAS AWAY ABOVE THE TOP OF THE TREE. IT IS PRESUMED THAT DECEASED, WHO HAD NOT BEEN VERY WELL LATELY, HAD A SUDDEN FIT OF VERTIGO. DEATH, ACCORDING TO THE MEDICAL EVIDENCE, RESULTED FROM HEMORRHAGE OF THE BRAIN CAUSED BY THE HEAD OF THE DECEASED STRIKING THE CURB.” SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR COPIES OF THE ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND A FUNERAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM MARTIN BROTHERS FUNERAL HOME.
