Series 7

The Stampede (rodeo events). - 1919-1950. - 3.3 m of textual records. - The Stampede, a contest of traditional cowboy athletic skills and a celebration of Western culture, was successfully held in 1912, and again in 1919. In 1923 it was held in conjunction with the annual Calgary Industrial Exhibition, and was so popular that it became an annual event, with the Exhibition being eventually renamed the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede. Initially the Stampede Parade and window display contest were also organized by the Stampede Committee. Eventually the Stampede events came to be known simply as the "rodeo events". The Stampede Managers (title later changed to Arena Director) included Guy Weadick (1912, 1919, 1923-1932), Jack Dillon (1932-1947), and Dick Cosgrave (1947-1970). - This series includes score sheets and results of Stampede events, as well as financial records, employment records, records of livestock used in events, and correspondence of the Stampede Manager or Arena Director.
