Administrative history

Mrs. Armstrong Junior Studio Club was a group of piano students of Mrs. Charles E. (Minnie F.)
Armstrong. Members were under 15 years of age. There was also a club formed for the piano students that were over 15 years old, called Mrs. Armstrong Senior Studio Club. These clubs were formed on January 25, 1924 at the home of Mrs. Armstrong, 152 Athabasca St. E.
The first officers elected by ballot for the Junior Club were Helen Ogilvy, president; Gertrude McIntosh, vice-president; Helen MacBean, secretary; Patricia Criushanks, treasurer; and social committee Nancy Horns, Mary Leask, Charlotte Hannah, Archie Hill and Maurice Schull. Each member paid fifty cents for a six month membership to cover cost of refreshments. Meetings were held once a month (no meetings in the summer months) at Mrs. Armstrong’s home, followed by a recital and then refreshments were served. Every second month parents and friends were invited to attend. The last written account of this club was in 1931.
Mrs. Minnie F. (nee Ruttan) Armstrong, formerly of Winnipeg, MB was married to crown prosecutor Charles Ernst Armstrong. He unexpectedly died from pneumonia on Christmas day in 1916. They had six children. There is no record of Mrs. Armstrong in Moose Jaw after 1938. It is believed she married an Alex Barrie who passed away in 1956. Minnie passed away in North Battleford in 1957. They are all buried in Moose Jaw.
