History
ITEM ORIGINALLY BELONGED TO DONOR'S FATHER, EDWARD BUCHANAN. EDWARD WAS A STAND-IN FOR THE EXECUTIONER AT THE LETHBRIDGE JAIL. EDWARD WAS PRESENT AT THE EXECUTION IN WHICH THIS ROPE WAS USED, IN THE LATE 1940S. THE EXECUTIONER SHOWED UP SO EDWARD DID NOT HAVE TO PERFORM THE EXECUTION HIMSELF, BUT KEPT PART OF THE ROPE THAT WAS USED. EDWARD WAS A MEMBER OF THE ALBERTA PROVINCIAL POLICE FROM 1919 UNTIL 1932 WHEN HE TRANSFERRED TO THE ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE. HE WAS A SENIOR STAFF SARGEANT, ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE AT LETHBRIDGE FROM MAY 1944 TO NOV. 1950. HE RETIRED IN 1950, THEN BECAME DIRECTOR OF CORRECTIONS FOR THE PROVINCE OF ALBERTA. FOLLOWING RETIREMENT EDWARD BECAME A MEMBER OF THE ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE VETERAN'S ASSOCIATION IN EDMONTON IN 1950/51, AND REMAINED A MEMBER UNTIL HIS PASSING; HE ALSO SERVED AS PRESIDENT OF THIS ASSOCIATION. SEE P20020090001-GA FOR COMPLETE BIOGRAPHY OF EDWARD BUCHANAN. *** NOOSE LABEL COPY BELOW SUBMITTED TO LETHBRIDGE LIVING MAGAZINE ON 11 FEBRUARY 2013 AS PART OF MAGAZINE’S WHAT’S IT FEATURE. COPY WAS AUTHORED BY COLLECTION VOLUNTEER KIRSTEN CHRISTOPHERSON AND DEVELOPED WITH ASSISTANCE FROM NOOSE DONOR TED BUCHANAN WHO PARTICIPATED IN A GALT INTERVIEW ON 18 JANUARY 2013. TO READ OR VIEW ENTIRE INTERVIEW, PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE. IN NOVEMBER 1948 CHIEF JUSTICE W.R. HOWSON DELIVERED THE SENTENCE THAT CONVICTED MURDERER STANLEY DONALD MCLAREN WAS WAITING FOR; “YOU WILL BE TAKEN FROM HERE TO THE PROVINCIAL JAIL AT LETHBRIDGE AND CONFINED TILL MARCH 30, 1949, AND ON THAT DATE YOU WILL BE TAKEN TO THE PLACE OF YOUR EXECUTION AND HANGED BY THE NECK UNTIL YOU ARE DEAD. AND MAY THE LORD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL.” THREE YEARS PRIOR TO HIS SENTENCING MCLAREN WAS ROBBING A STORE IN CALGARY WHEN HE GOT INTO A STRUGGLE WITH GROCER LUM YUM WING, FATALLY STRIKING HIM WITH A REVOLVER. A YEAR OF INJUSTICE PASSED UNTIL MCLAREN WAS ARRESTED IN TORONTO FOR A SEPARATE, UNRELATED INCIDENT. UPON ARREST, HIS WIFE PROVIDED INFORMATION TO AUTHORITIES ON HIS PREVIOUS CRIME, LEADING HIM TO CONFESS TO MURDER. NOOSE DONOR AND EXECUTION WITNESS TED BUCHANAN IS THE SON OF THE LATE MR. EDWARD BUCHANAN, A FORMER LETHBRIDGE RCMP STAFF SERGEANT. IN 2013, THE JUNIOR BUCHANAN TOLD THE MUSEUM THAT A LOCAL SHERIFF WAS ASSIGNED RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE 1949 LETHBRIDGE HANGING. “THIS SHERIFF”, SAID TED, “WAS VERY UNEASY THAT IF THE HANGMAN COULDN’T DO HIS JOB THEN HE WAS GOING TO HAVE TO [DO IT]. HE ASKED IF DAD WOULD STEP IN FOR HIM AND DAD AGREED. DAD (THEREFORE) HAD SOME AUTHORITY AND HE WAS …RESPONSIBLE FOR WHO WAS THERE. HE ASKED ME ONE NIGHT… ‘WOULD YOU LIKE TO COME UP TO THE JAIL AND WITNESS A HANGING?’ AND I THOUGHT ABOUT IT FOR A MINUTE AND I SAID, ‘SURE.’” IT WASN’T UNTIL ABOUT A DECADE LATER WHEN EDWARD UNLOCKED A TRUNK FULL OF MEMORABILIA FROM HIS TIME WITH THE RCMP THAT TED LEARNED THAT HIS FATHER HAD TAKEN THE NOOSE HOME WITH HIM. SAID TED IN 2013, “THE REASON HE BROUGHT IT OUT WAS BECAUSE I WAS A WITNESS TO THIS HANGING AT THE JAIL. AND THIS WAS THE ROPE THAT WAS AROUND THE NECK OF THE FELLOW.” TED RECALLED “[DAD] THOUGHT THESE THINGS WOULD BE INTERESTING TO PUT INTO A MUSEUM SOMETIME. …HE SAID THESE THINGS CAME FROM LETHBRIDGE, FIND OUT IF [THE GALT MUSEUM & ARCHIVES] WOULD BE INTERESTED IN THEM.” AS PER EDWARD’S REQUEST, TED DONATED THIS PIECE OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE HISTORY AND OTHER RELATED ARTIFACTS TO THE MUSEUM IN 1999.

ACCORDING TO INSPECTOR BILL KAYE, WHO USED THE LEASH IN CONJUNCTION WITH HIS POLICE SERVICE DOG, ZORKO, THE LEASH WAS USED FOR TRACKING. HE SAID, "IT ALLOWED YOU TO GET BEHIND THE DOG BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE DOG FOR INDICATIONS. IF YOU'RE TOO CLOSE YOU CAN'T SEE THEM SO YOU GET BACK, BUT YOU WANT TO BE CLOSE ENOUGH THAT YOU CAN STILL CONTROLL THE DOG, YOU NEED TO SEE HIM AND STUFF."

IT'S THE CONCEPT OF THE CHOKE CHAIN. JUST LIKE THE METAL ONES BUT IT'S QUIET, IT DOESN'T JINGLE. IT DIDN'T MAKE THAT NOISE. IT JUST GAVE YOU SOMETHING YOU HAD TO HANG ONTO.

WE HAVE ACTUALLY GONE AWAY AND WE ARE NOT USING THEM ANYMORE FOR THAT EXACT REASON. WE THINK THAT SOME OF OUR DOGS' ELBOW JOINT AND HIP JOINT OR LEG PROBLEMS ARE COMING FROM THOSE SUDDEN MOVEMENTS SO WE HAVE GONE BACK TO A PREDICTABLE BALL."

History
ACCORDING TO DONOR BILL LINGARD AT TIME OF DONATION, "(THE TAG WAS) IN A BOX OF DIVERSE ITEMS... THEY MAY HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO MY OLDER BROTHER BUT WERE MINE AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER." LINGARD RECALLED, "THE TAG WAS WORN BY A GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG, 'REX' OWENED BY MY LATE UNCLE, DONALD N. LINGARD. WHEN DON WENT INTO THE ARMY, THE DOG REMAINED AT MY GRANDPARENTS' HOME AT 505 14TH ST. S. WHICH LATER BECAME OUR HOME. THE DOG JUST SORT OF WENT WITH THE HOUSE. I KNEW THE DOG AS A CHILD, HE WAS A SELF APPOINTED GUARDIAN OF NEIGHBORHOOD CHILDREN, WITH US WHEN WE PLAYED, ALWAYS BETWEEN US AND THE STREET. THE DOG WAS QUITE POSSESIVE OF THE FAMILY, FOR EXAMPLE, MY MOM HAD CALLED MR SCOTT, A PLUMBER, TO THE HOUSE TO DO SOME WORK - ON COMPLETION OF THE JOB SHE WAS STANDING AT THE FRONT STEPS TALKING WITH HIM. MR. SCOTT WAS STANDING ON THE FRONT YARD SIDEWALK. THE DOG WAS WALKING BACK AND FORTH AND MY MOM NOTICED THAT MR SCOTT WAS NOW AT THE CITY SIDEWALK. EACH TIME THE DOG WALKED BY HIM, HE GAVE MR. SCOTT A SLIGHT BUMP, MOVING HIM BACK A STEP." IN 1941, DOG LICENSES WERE SOLD BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE (C.L.P.).
