The Calgary Stampede: 100 Years of the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth
With the Calgary Stampede celebrating its Centennial in 2012, the Calgary Herald delved into the past, present and future of this event -- the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth. The result is a book brimming with treasured stories; with hundreds of rare and/or historical photos; the 10 most unforgettable Stampede images from each decade of the past 100 years; pages of memorabilia; a collection of the Stampede’s annual posters; and archived editorial cartoons. Also found in this book are chapters exploring ten major themes of the Stampede; stories and photos from the Centennial event itself; a reproduction of the rare program from the first Stampede in 1912 (complete with pictures and text); and writings from Stampede founder Guy Weadick before his death.
The Calgary Herald began publishing in 1883, when Calgary's population was just four hundred people. The Herald is proud to have chronicled the history of one of Canada's most vibrant and enterprising cities and is now one of Canada's most recognized major media brands, a division of Postmedia Network Inc. In addition to the dozens of national and international journalism awards it has received, the Herald was given the 2013 Award for Outstanding Corporate Philanthropist by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.read more
