UPON DONATION TO THE MUSEUM, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN ASKED MEMBERS OF THE GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING (GSN) ALUMNAE TO PROVIDE WRITTEN ANSWERS ON QUESTIONS PERTAINING TO EACH ARTIFACT DONATED IN THE COLLECTION. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS COME FROM THOSE RESPONSES CORRESPONDING TO EACH INDIVIDUAL ARTIFACT. THIS IS A SMALL GLASS BEAKER THAT WAS USED TO MEASURE FLUID MEDICATIONS. IT WAS USED IN THE “PHARMACY AND MED ROOMS TO MIX MEDICATIONS.” ACCORDING TO HISTORY, THIS ARTIFACT WAS USED FROM 1945 TO THE 1960S. “NURSES USED THIS INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE MEDICATIONS IN C.C.’S [CUBIC CENTIMETERS].” OF THIS ARTIFACT, IT WAS WRITTEN, “THIS SHOWS HOW THINGS HAVE PROGRESSED FROM GLASS TO PLASTIC. IT WAS ESSENTIAL TO GIVE MEDICATIONS.” THE WRITING ON THE BASE OF THE BEAKER LINKS THIS ARTIFACT TO THE PHARMACY IN 1921. THIS ARTIFACT IS AMONG A COLLECTION DONATED NEAR THE END OF 2014, BEING THE SECOND WAVE OF GSN ARTIFACTS ACQUIRED BY THE MUSEUM THAT YEAR. WITH THE FIRST WAVE OF GSN ARTIFACTS COLLECTED IN SUMMER 2014, MACLEAN INTERVIEWED THE PAST ARCHIVISTS OF THE GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING COLLECTION, SHIRLEY HIGA, ELAINE HAMILTON, AND SUE KYLLO, ABOUT THEIR INVOLVEMENT WITH THE GSN ALUMNAE ASSOCIATION AND THE HISTORY OF ARTIFACTS DONATED. FOR THAT INFORMATION, PLEASE REFER TO P20140006001. PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE FOR MORE INFORMATION.

NO IDENTIFYING MARKS. MANUFACTURER UNKNOWN. *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.

THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION WAS COMPILED USING ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. THE DONOR, SHARON DERRICK, IS THE NIECE OF AGNES SHORT. AGNES CHRISTINA SHORT WAS BORN ON APRIL 20, 1916 TO WILLIAM H. AND BERTHA SHORT (MAIDEN NAME UNKNOWN). SHE GRADUATED FROM LETHBRIDGE COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE AND THEN ATTDNED THE CALGARY GENERAL HOSPITAL FOR NURSING TRAINING, WHICH SHE GRADUATED FROM IN 1939.

SEE PERMANENT FILE FOR COPIES OF THE ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. *UPDATE* IN 2018 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF BOXED TEXTILES AND ACCESSORIES INCLUDING A NUMBER OF ARTIFACTS DONATED BY SHARON DERRICK. ON 1 MARCH 2018, PUNDYK INTERVIEWED DERRICK REGARDING HER DONATION. THE INFORMATION BELOW HAS BEEN EXTRACTED FROM THAT INTERVIEW: A NUMBER OF ARTIFACTS DONATED WERE CONNECTED TO THE DONOR’S AUNT, AGNES SHORT AND HER CAREER AS THE SENIOR NURSE AT THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE HEALTH UNIT AND AT THE GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING. “[THE NURSING ITEMS] WOULD HAVE BEEN FROM THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE HEALTH UNIT, [WHERE] MY AUNT WAS THE SENIOR NURSE AT THE HEALTH UNIT… I HAVE NO IDEA [WHY SHE HELD ONTO THESE THINGS]. PROBABLY WHEN THERE WAS BIG MOVES, AND THEY PACKED EVERYTHING IN BOXES, AND MAY BE SOME OF HER PERSONAL STUFF WAS IN BOXES. I DON’T KNOW. [SOME THINGS WOULD ALSO] BE FROM THE GALT SCHOOL OF NURSING.” THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS BEEN TAKEN FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HISTORY BOOK TITLED, “LEGACY OF LETHBRIDGE WOMEN,” WRITTEN BY GEORGIA GREEN FOOKS, PATRICIA HAGEN, AND MARY OORDT AND PUBLISHED IN 2005: “AGNES SHORT’S LEGACY TO LETHBRIDGE STEMMED FROM HER EXEMPLARY CAREER IN NURSING AND FROM HER MANY OTHER SERVICES TO THE COMMUNITY. THE DAUGHTER OF BERTHA AND WILLIAM SHORT, AGNES WAS RAISED IN THE MARRIED QUARTERS AT NO. 2 FIRE DEPARTMENT. AFTER GRADUATING FROM THE LETHBRIDGE COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE SHE STUDIED NURSING IN THE THREE-YEAR PROGRAM AT THE CALGARY GENERAL HOSPITAL. SHE THEN RETURNED IN 1939 TO BECOME SUPERVISOR OF THE GALT HOSPITAL AT $35 A MONTH. IN 1945 AGNES BECAME HEAD OF THE NURSING STAFF OF THE LETHBRIDGE SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 51, MOVING THEN TO THE DIRECTOR OF NURSING AT THE LETHBRIDGE HEALTH UNIT. THERE SHE SAW THE FIRST USE OF PENICILLIN IN LETHBRIDGE AND WAS ONE OF THE FIRST MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS TO GIVE THE SALK VACCINE FOR POLIO. AGNES RETIRED FROM NURSING IN 1980 AFTER 42 YEARS ON THE JOB. APART FROM HER PROFESSIONAL LIFE, AGNES WAS INVOLVED IN MANY ORGANIZATIONS… AGNES EARNED A WOMAN OF DISTINCTION AWARD FROM THE YWCA AND A GOLD AWARD FROM THE CANADIAN RED CROSS. AT ONE PUBLIC FUNCTION SHE SAID, ‘LETHBRIDGE AND ITS CITIZENS HAVE BEEN WONDERFUL TO ME.’ UNDOUBTEDLY, AFTER A LIFETIME OF DEDICATION TO PUBLIC SERVICE, AGNES RETURNED THE FAVOUR.” WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE REASON FOR THE DONATION OF HER FAMILY’S ARTIFACTS DURING THE 2018 INTERVIEW, DERRICK EXPLAINED, “I WAS THE EXECUTOR FOR MY AUNT’S WILL AND WHEN SHE PASSED AWAY SHE [WAS LIVING IN] MY GRANDMOTHER AND GRANDFATHER’S HOME. ALL THIS STUFF HAD BEEN LEFT IN THE HOUSE, SO WHEN WE WERE CLEANING IT OUT FOLLOWING HER DEATH, WE CAME ACROSS ALL THESE THINGS. WHILE I KEPT SOME AS MEMENTOS, MY SISTER AND I [DECIDED TO DONATE OTHER ITEMS TO THE MUSEUM].” PLEASE PERMANENT FILE P19950037001, FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION AND COPIES OF ARTICLES REGARDING THE FAMILY HISTORY.
