I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to the Calgary Public Library, the City of Calgary’s Corporate Records and Archives and the Archives of the Glenbow Museum for their assistance with this project. These agencies are the repositories of the memories of this City and their staff have been incredibly helpful in the pursuit of this project.
I would also like to express my thanks to the editors and writers of Calgary’s early newspapers. Without these early writers, it would be all but impossible to have an idea as to what was happening during the early days of non-indigenous settlement in this region.
I would also like to express my thanks to Amy Shira Teitel, who’s own live-tweeting of historic events helped inspire this project.
And last but not least, I cannot ever adequately express gratitude to Tim Yarkowsky, Chelsea Parker and Richard Dame. They’re the reason I keep trying. Thank you so very much.
