    Biographical history

    Douglas Allan Gaudette was born in Granum, Alberta in 1915, the son of Clifford Francis Wilfred "Frank" Gaudette (originally Gandetta) (1889-1945) and Edna Luchia (1894-1971). Frank was a druggist who managed the drug store in Granum before purchasing it in 1912. The family moved to Lethbridge, Alberta in 1929.

    He received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Alberta and later attended Calgary Normal School. He taught at a Lethbridge junior high school before joining the staff of the Provincial Institute of Art and Technology, later known as the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). He retired from SAIT in 1971.

    Douglas married Orvie Lunde (1913-1975) in Lethbridge, Alberta in 1941, and together they had six children: Barry, Allan, Shelley (Longford), Dawn, Neil and Doug.

    Douglas died in Edmonton in 1981.
