THE GIFT THAT GREW AN ART COLLECTION
A dynamic and forward-thinking group of citizens, an enlightened City administration and a bold regional planning commission strongly recommended that a site west of the Oldman River, mostly on the land bordering the coulee, was the ideal location for the University of Lethbridge.
Straddling the sixth and seventh floors of the University Centre for the Arts, Moses exudes the strength and confidence of one who has watched the world change around him. The eye-catching sculpture has the distinction of being the first piece of artwork acquired for the renowned University of Lethbridge Art Collection.
Taking the lead, the City of Lethbridge purchased approximately 1,800 acres of land across the river in 1968 with the intention of donating some of it to the newly founded University of Lethbridge. In October of that same year, city council voted in favour of donating 315 acres to the University, making the City of Lethbridge the U of L’s first donor. Since then, the City and the University have partnered on many projects to improve the personal well-being of individuals and families, and enhance the quality of life in local and regional communities. Today, the Max Bell Regional Aquatic Centre, the 1st Choice Savings Centre for Sport and Wellness and the U of L Community Sports Stadium benefit our community as a result of the U of L’s partnership with the City.
An integral part of the University’s history, 17-foot tall, 1,800 kilogram Moses was brought home by Dr. Van E. Christou (LLD ’84) following a family vacation at Expo 67 in Montreal. “When we were walking around Expo I was really struck by the art throughout the site, and I noticed that each sculpture was owned by the House of Seagrams,” says Christou, who was a member of the University’s original Board of Governors. “I called up our president, Sam Smith, and asked if he could get me a meeting with one of their representatives. The next day I spent an afternoon with Charles Bronfman, the CEO. At the end of our talk, I asked him what they were doing with all the sculptures when Expo was finished and he said they had no plans.” So Christou made his pitch, telling the story of the new centennial university in southern Alberta and how a significant art piece would make a
wonderful gift to celebrate its opening. “He said go ahead, choose whatever one you want,” says Christou, who eventually chose Moses because he thought it worked best with Arthur Erickson’s design of University Hall. Moses was originally installed at the University’s Lethbridge Junior College campus before being moved to the west side in 1972 and mounted outside the entrance to University Hall. For more than four years Moses braved the weather as best he could, but even 4,000 pounds of bronze can buckle when confronted with southern Alberta chinook winds that vibrated it so consistently, it developed a series of cracks in its base. In the fall of 1977, Moses was taken down and shipped off to Dressor Clark Industries for substantial repairs. A heavier base was constructed, cracks in its exterior were sealed and Moses was ready for his next, and final, journey. In 1981, as the Centre for the Arts was nearing completion, he was lowered through an unfinished roof to his current resting place. Today the U of L art collection includes more than 14,000 works of art. The U of L embraces its role as a major collecting institution and the collection plays a central role in research, learning and community engagement at the University.

BOOSTER CLUB MA K E S ATHLETICS A P R I O R I T Y
Joseph Dorner passed away 12 years before the University of Lethbridge opened its doors, but a visionary gift in his name continues to impact U of L students today.
In 1990, the University of Lethbridge began the process of planning for the Library Information Network Connection (LINC), a state-of-the-art library that would address the needs of a growing student population.
The 1993-94 Pronghorns men’s hockey team was not considered a championship contender. Moreover, following a year of controversy over the priority of funding athletics at the University, the hockey program faced the prospect of being cut from the U of L athletic landscape completely.
Dorner was born in Austria and immigrated to North America in the late 1800s. First settling in North Dakota, he eventually travelled to Alberta and purchased some land in the Granum area, where he farmed for many years. Dorner passed away in 1955, leaving his estate to his second wife Leopoldine. With her death in 1989, she kindly made a bequest in her will for student awards at the U of L, with the intent to support a student from rural southern Alberta. Considered the U of L’s first estate gift, the Joseph Dorner Memorial Award has resulted in more than $97,300 in student awards to date. The U of L has always placed students at the heart of everything we do and increasing support for the more than 8,400 students attending the University continues to be a priority. Last year, the U of L received $4.5 million in funding for student awards from donors like you, helping provide opportunities that otherwise may have been out of reach.
Funding for LINC came from many sources, but U of L students were the largest single contributor, providing $1.5 million to the project. Led by Students’ Union President Poul Mark (BA ’94) in the largest student referendum at that time, U of L students overwhelmingly voted in favour of a $2.50 per course levy to go toward the new library. The $34 million project took 12 years to complete and officially opened in the fall of 2001. “It shows we’re willing to invest in our education,” said Students’ Union President Matt McHugh when interviewed at the grand opening. “Not only for ourselves, but for future students.” As one of the first universities in Canada to have students sit on the Board of Governors, the U of L has long involved students in the decision-making process. However, student support for the library project set a new precedent, proving that U of L students were willing to put their money where their mouth was. U of L students have contributed to a variety of projects, including the Students’ Union Building and the 1st Choice Savings Centre for Sport and Wellness, and continue to play a key role in determining the future of the University.
Board members, alumni and hockey fans throughout southern Alberta joined forces to establish the Pronghorns Booster Club, which provided essential support to University Athletics, including men’s hockey. And then finally, in March of 1994, the U of L Pronghorns proved they were the fittest species on the ice when they claimed the CIAU University Cup at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, Ont. For an institution struggling with the pain of budget cutbacks and restructuring, the Horns’ triumph boosted morale across campus. In addition, the establishment of the Pronghorns Booster Club helped turn U of L athletics into a University, student and community partnership that continues today. Programs such as Operation Red Nose, Adopt-a-Horn, Lux Bucks and the Pronghorns Annual Fund help the U of L maintain a level of athletic excellence that makes the University, our alumni and our fans proud.
