Description
A brass and steel controller used for opening and closing cell doors at Oakalla Prison. The top is composed of a brass plate and is round in shape. A brass handle is present in the center of the plate and rotates to aim a pointer at any of numbers 1 to 9 and the letter A at the beginning of the numbers. The handle is spring loaded and can rotate whenever it is pushed down releasing it from a pin. Under this brass plate are two steel gears held within a steel frame all of which are held together with locking nuts. Markings on the top of the brass plate: "A" and the numbers in consecutive order from "1" to "9" . The numbers 7, 8 and 9 have been stamped in and appear to have been added later whereas the numbers "1" to "6" are present in raised format. The number "7" appears twice likely since the handle only locks at that point in between the two "7s" Markings on the bottom of the brass plated: Scratched is "OAKALLA BVM" Markings on the small gear: "KANA" "NK 40B 15".

Ross joined the Oakalla staff full time as a Presbeterian Minister in 1971, employed by the BC Correctional Services Branch. He worked there as Chaplain until 1991 when Oakalla closed. He was often called in from home to help with high pressure situations that arose at Oakalla to help defuse incidents like hostage taking and other high pressure conflicts. Ross collected several items from Oakalla when it closed, but some were given to him because of the significance of his time there.
