Attended the Banff School of Fine Arts. Quadravision paintings (can turn it any way), he has the past present and future in on painting – centennial symbol, beautiful colors. Most of his work incorporates Indian scenes – portrait of an Indian child “kid.” Some of his paintings for sale at the Trading Post. Starts with one thing turns it around until finished – quadravision technique. East side of “Clinic” (?) Lake. His own people like his painting. One picture is supposed to give you a feeling of warmth, moon is at the horizon, Indian person making a peace-pipe offering. The buffalo skull depicted in painting represents danger. Frank Kaquitts Indian name is Sitting Wind. He Sketches outdoors, paints indoors – works only in oils. Description of his painting of a Chinook arch. Painting of centennial symbols – 10 of them to represent the ten provinces. Another painting of a flying saucer and rocket. Talks about the difference behind the different colors of the different Indian designs. “All Indian people are different in a lot of ways” Designs are of the mountains, flowers, etc. Designs of the old people sometimes were a different color, but the design was the same. Frank has a “modernist approach.” Frank’s paintings are on sale at Fort Chiniki or in Banff.

History / Biographical
The Wardle family was comprised of husband and wife, James Morey Wardle (June 26,1888 - May 18,1971) and Maud Leette (Roney) Wardle (May 24,1889 - December 1,1969), and their one child, Dorothy Hope Wardle (May 23,1919 - July 20,2003). James Wardle, born in Chiliwack, British Columbia, was a civil engineer and public servant. He was the Superintendent of Banff National Park from 1918-1921, Chief Engineer for Parks Canada from 1921-1935, and Deputy Minister of the Interior from 1935-1936. He is primarily known as a highway design engineer, particularly for building the Banff-Windermere, Banff-Lake Louise, and Banff-Jasper highways. He was a councillor for the Municipality of Rockcliffe Park in Ontario and he was the President of the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies in Banff from 1925-1929. Mount Wardle in Vermillion was named after him in 1921. James married Leette on November 4, 1913, with whom he had one child, Dorothy. Born in Calgary, Alberta, Dorothy (also known as Dot and Dorie) grew up in Banff, Alberta and Ottawa, Ontario, due to her father's position with the federal government. She was educated at the Mountain School in Banff and at the Elmwood School in Ottawa. All three family members were graduates of Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. James graduated in 1912 with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Leette graduated with a Bachelor's degree, and in 1942, Dorothy also earned a Bachelor's degree. Dorothy was prominent in student life and active in athletics. In 1941, Dorothy became the first woman elected as President of the Alma Mater Society and during her academic career, Dorothy was a member of the Levana Intercollegiate Debative, University Centenary Committee, and Queen’s War Aid Commission. Dorothy spent her career as a freelance writer however, upon graduation she served as the first Secretary-In-Charge of Records at Carleton College (now Carleton University) from 1942-1944 in Ottawa and in the mid-1950s worked as a secretary for the Glenbow Foundation in Calgary. Dorothy pursued a lifelong interest in traveling, art, and antiques. Although she was fiercely proud and protective of Banff and the Park, and remained a volunteer and patron of the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Dorothy eventually settled in Sidney, British Columbia and shared an apartment with Sheila Iris Ritchie, with whom Dorothy travelled extensively. After her death in 2003, Dorothy, "Dorie," was laid to rest alongside her parents in the Old Banff Cemetery.
