    June 1972

    The following biography was obtained from the University of Calgary Gazette, May, 1972.

    Mr. Gooderham, born on the Poorman Indian Reserve in Central Saskatchewan began his life among the Indians and throughout his life maintained a very close friendship and working relationship with them. Both the Blackfoot and Blood Bands made him an honorary Chief and he served on the executive of the Kainai Chieftainship, an organization limited to a number of prominent men made Honorary Chiefs by the Blood Indian Band.

    Mr. Gooderham worked for the Blackfoot Indians from 1920, taking over from his father as Agent and later becoming Regional supervisor, a position he retained until his retirement in 1954. In 1955 he launched a new career with the Harvie Foundation, becoming the first employee of the Glenbow Foundation. Here he has put his vast knowledge of the Indian people and their history to work, writing stories and articles and building the Glenbow Collection.

    Now he is working with the Riveredge Foundation, a private Foundation that grew out of the original Glenbow. His interests have touched the whole community, however, and he is past Director of the Provincial Association of the Canadian Mental Health Association, of which he organized the Calgary branch; a past associated Direct of the Calgary Stampede and Exhibition and Stampede Board and a past president of the Alberta Pioneers and Old Timers Association and the Men’s Canadian Club of Calgary.

    In 1961 the Blackfoot Sun Dance was recorded in sound and pictures by the Glenbow Foundation. It was first time such a film had been made.
    In appreciation of what Mr. E.L. Harvie had done for them in this connection, the leading BlackFoot society–The Horns–on behalf of the band, made him an honorary Chief at a large gathering in their Community Hall on 23 April 1962.

    An excellent album of pictures taken during the ceremony has been preserved, and among them is this picture of George Hamilton accompanying Mr. Harvie during the ceremony.
