SEE BELOW. ACCORDING TO MORRIS, THE BEDSPREAD WOULD HAVE BEEN MADE BY ELIZABETH (NOHORNOFF) WISHLOW SHE WOULD HAVE DONE ALL OF THE WORK BY HAND. BLANKETS OF THIS TYPE WERE NOT USED FOR WARMTH. THEY WERE USED FOR DECORATION OVER TOP OF A MORE UTILITARIAN BLANKET. MORRIS REMEMBERED THAT THE HOUSES HAD GREY, MUD-PLASTERED WALLS. DOUKHOBORS USED ITEMS MADE FROM VIBRANT COLORS IN ORDER TO BRIGHTEN UP THEIR HOMES. FOR MORE INFORMATION SEE PERMANENT FILE. *UPDATE* IN 2017 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT RUTHANN LABLANCE CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF CLOTHING, INCLUDING AN APRON DONATED BY ELIZABETH KONKIN. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION WAS COMPILED USING ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. ELIZABETH KONKIN AKA ELSIE MORRIS IS THE DAUGHTER OF WILLIAM KONKIN AND ELIZABETH P. KONKIN (NEE WISHLOW). ELSIE WAS MARRIED TO TERRANCE GORDON “TERRY” MORRIS. TERRY PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 88 ON OCTOBER 25, 2012. WILLIAM KONKIN PASSED AWAY MARCH 3, 1977 AT THE AGE OF 72. ELIZABETH KONKIN (NEE WISHLOW) WAS BORN IN CANORA, SK ON JANUARY 22, 1907, THE DAUGHTER OF PETER AND ELIZABETH WISHLOW (MAIDEN NAME UNKNOWN). AT THE AGE OF 6 SHE MOVED WITH HER FAMILY TO A DOUKHOBOR SETTLEMENT AT BRILLIANT, BC, THEN LATER HER FAMILY MOVED TO A DOUKHOBOR SETTLEMENT AT SHOULDICE, AB. IT WAS HERE THAT SHE MET AND MARRIED WILLIAM KONKIN. IN 1939, THE COUPLE MOVED TO THE VAUXHALL AREA TO FARM UNTIL THEIR RETIREMENT, AFTER WHICH THEY MOVED TO LETHBRIDGE. ELIZABETH PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 93 ON APRIL 8, 2000. SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR COPIES OF THE ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. THE KONKINS WERE A RUSSIAN-SPEAKING FAMILY FROM THE TOWN OF SHOULDICE, ALBERTA, NEAR CALGARY. THEY AND MANY OTHER RUSSIAN FAMILIES COMPOSED THAT TOWN'S DOUKHOBOR COLONY.

DONOR RELATES THAT THIS BEDSPREAD WAS USED WITH A QUILT THAT WAS UPON HER MOTHER'S BED IN COALDALE. THE NAKAYAMA FAMILY WAS ORIGINALLY FROM VANCOUVER BUT MOVED TO COALDALE FOLLOWING THE SECOND WORLD WAR WHEN THEY WERE INTERNED AT SLOCAN CITY IN THE INTERIOR OF BRITISH COLUMBIA BY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT. THE DONOR'S FATHER, REV. CANON G.G. NAKAYAMA, WAS AN ANGLICAN MINISTER IN VANCOUVER, AND THEN ESTABLISHED THE CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION IN COALDALE IN 1945 WHERE HE SERVED UNTIL 1970.

UKRAINIAN HERITAGE ARTIFACT *UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, INCLUDING THREE DONATED BY THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION OF LETHBRIDGE. THOUGH THE ASSOCIATION HAS DISBANDED, SHE WAS ABLE TO DETERMINE THAT IT IS LIKELY THAT THIS OBJECT AND 81 OTHERS DONATED BY THE ASSOCIATION IN 1973 WERE ORIGINALLY PART OF THE GALT MUSEUM'S 'UKRAINIAN ROOM' EXHIBIT. ACCORDING TO LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM 1969 AND 1976, AND PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE GALT ARCHIVES (199110764419, 1991107612370, 199110764421, AND 199110764422) THE UKRAINIAN ROOM WAS INSTALLED IN 1966, WHEN THE MUSEUM WAS MOVED FROM THE BOWMAN CENTRE TO THE GALT HOSPITAL BUILDING. THE ROOM WAS FURNISHED WITH OBJECTS DONATED BY THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION, AND THE GROUP HELD ANNUAL TEAS THERE. THOUGH THE CATALOGUE NUMBERS OF THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION DONATION REFLECT A 1973 DONATION DATE, THE INITIAL ACQUISITION YEAR LISTED IN HARDCOPY FILES IS 1966, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE OPENING DATE OF THE UKRAINIAN ROOM. IN ADDITION, ARCHIVAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE ROOM DEPICT OBJECTS THAT ARE NOW HELD IN COLLECTIONS (P19738277001-GA, P19738277002-GA, AND P19738277003-GA CAN BE CLEARLY IDENTIFIED, WITH OTHER OBJECTS IDENTIFIED SPECULATIVELY). IN 1984 THE MUSEUM DISMANTLED ALL ITS DISPLAYS IN PREPARATION FOR THE BUILDING'S RENOVATION AND EXPANSION, AND ACCORDING TO BRAD BROWN, GALT EXHIBIT DESIGNER, WHEN THE FACILITY REOPENED TO THE PUBLIC IN 1985 ALL THE EXHIBITS HAD BEEN REWORKED, AND THE UKRAINIAN ROOM NO LONGER EXISTED.

HERB'S VISION OF REHABILITATION INCLUDED "MEANINGFUL" WORK FOR PRISONERS, RESULTING IN FIELD WORK GROWING VEGETABLE CROPS AND WHEAT, RAISING CATTLE AND HOGS, AS WELL AS WORKING IN THE PRISON BUTCHER SHOP, BAKERY, CANNERY, AND CREAMERY. IN ADDITION, PRISONERS BEAUTIFIED THE GROUNDS BY WORKING ON FLOWER BEDS AND BUILDING STONE FENCES, CREATING AN ATTRACTIVE PARK IN THE "FRONT YARD" OF THE JAIL. HERB WAS MADE AN HONOURARY CHIEF BY THE PEIGAN NATION IN 1949 FOR HIS EFFORTS TO PROVIDE MEANINGFUL WORK TO NATIVE INMATES. HERB WAS APPOINTED MAGISTRATE IN AND FOR THE PROVINCE OF ALBERTA IN AUGUST 1950, AND HELD THIS POST UNTIL HIS DEATH IN 1959. ADA HOLT (NEE MOYER) WAS BORN IN ONTARIO IN 1907; HER PARENTS MOVED OUTSIDE FORT SASKATCHEWAN IN 1909 WHERE THEY HOMESTEADED ON A FARM. AS A YOUNG WOMAN ADA WORKED FOR FIVE YEARS AT THE GENERAL STORE. ADA MET HERB IN FORT SASKATCHEWAN, AND THEY MARRIED IN 1935. ADA CONTINUED TO CALL LETHBRIDGE HER HOME AFTER HER HUSBAND'S DEATH UNTIL 1998 WHEN SHE SUFFERED A STROKE. SHE PASSED AWAY AT THE BEVERLY CENTRE IN JANUARY OF 2000.
