DONOR FOUND BOX IN HER HOME WHILE SPRING CLEANING. *UPDATE* IN 2018 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN ARTIFACT SURVEY, INCLUDING A CURLER DONATED BY BETTY ANDERSON. ARCHIVAL RESEARCH FOUND THAT THE DONOR’S FULL NAME WAS ELIZABETH VIVIAN “BETTY” ANDERSON (NEE ROBINSON) (1920-2001). ATTEMPTS MADE TO LOCATE HER NEXT-OF-KIN WERE UNSUCCESSFUL. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION HAS BEEN COMPILED USING ARCHIVAL SOURCES. AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE DECEMBER 29, 1996 EDITION OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD STATED THAT ANDERSON WAS BORN ON SEPTEMBER 17, 1920 “THREE KILOMETRES NORTH OF ETZIKOM, IN A HOUSE MADE MAINLY OF SOD.” FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE FAMILY’S EARLY HOUSE THERE, PLEASE SEE ARTICLE IN THE PERMANENT FILE. ANDERSON WAS BORN TO BILL ROBINSON AND VERA WATSON. HER FATHER EMIGRATED FROM IRELAND TO ONTARIO, AND BY 1908 HE MOVED TO NANTON. IN 1909 OR 1910, ROBINSON MOVED TO ETZIKOM IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA. BY THE TIME BETTY ANDERSON REACHED SCHOOL AGE, THE FAMILY RELOCATED TO THE MCNALLY AREA, JUST SOUTH OF LETHBRIDGE. SHE ATTENDED SCHOOLS IN THE AREA UNTIL 1934, WHEN SHE WAS IN GRADE 11 BEFORE MOVING TO LETHBRIDGE COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE FOR GRADE 12. IN ORDER TO ATTEND SCHOOL IN THE CITY, SHE HAD TO BOARD WITH A LOCAL ORGANIST NAMED RHYDDID WILLIAMS. FOLLOWING HIGH SCHOOL, ANDERSON MOVED TO CALGARY TO ATTEND MOUNT ROYAL COLLEGE FOR TWO YEARS AND RECEIVED HER TEACHING CERTIFICATE. SHE FURTHERED HER EDUCATION AT CALGARY NORMAL SCHOOL (LATER SAIT) AND RECEIVED HER BACHELOR OF EDUCATION FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE. ACCORDING TO AN ADDITIONAL ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, ANDERSON’S TEACHING “CAREER SPANNED FROM THE ERA OF ONE-ROOM SCHOOLS TO A SEMESTER STINT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE.” IN THE ARTICLE, ANDERSON STATED, “MY FIRST JOB WAS AT GOLD RIDGE SCHOOL [IN 1939], OUT NORTH-WEST OF TURIN. THERE WERE 16 KIDS.” IN 1941, BETTY ANDERSON MARRIED GLENN ANDERSON (1922-1995). THE COUPLE LIVED ON A RANCH IN THE PORCUPINE HILLS AND HAD EIGHT CHILDREN – THREE DAUGHTERS, E. JOYCE JANTZ, DOROTHY JOAN ANDERSON, AND P. ELAINE ANDERSON; AND FIVE SONS, RICHARD G., DOUGLAS K., GREGORY B., JAMES D., AND RONALD D. THE HERALD ARTICLE STATES ANDERSON WAS A VOLUNTEER AT THE SIR ALEXANDER GALT MUSEUM AND ARCHIVES FOLLOWING HER TEACHING CAREER. BETTY ANDERSON PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 80 ON AUGUST 26, 2001. SHE IS BURIED AT THE MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY IN LETHBRIDGE. PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING FULL COPIES OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES.
