Biographical history

In 1993, Glenbow curators Frances Roback and Sandra Morton-Weizman undertook an oral history project as research for an upcoming exhibition on childhood --"Growing Up and Away". They were assisted by summer student, Sandi Davis, and Pauline Dempsey who was hired on contract to interview most of the First Nations people. She interviewed primarily members of the Blood tribe, but also included a few members of the Peigan and Siksika. Her husband, Hugh Dempsey, assisted with some of the interviews. Some of these were in English, some in Blackfoot and some in both English and Blackfoot. These were then translated and transcribed.
