Name of creator
The City's RCMP Centennial Committee was established in February, 1973. The Committee was composed of members of Civic administration, the RCMP, and members of the community. They worked separately from the Provincial RCMP Centennial Committee.
The City's RCMP Centennial Committee was responsible for planning commemorative celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Northwest Mounted Police (later the Royal Canadian Mounted Police) in 1873, and the 100th anniversary of their arrival in what is now Alberta in 1874.
Scope and content
This series contains the records created by the City's RCMP Centennial Committee. It includes meeting minutes, correspondence, and photographs relating to the activities undertaken by the Committee in celebrating the RCMP's 100th anniversary. Events included commemorative markers, a display at City Hall, artwork by sculptor John Weaver, a special event at Fort Edmonton Park, and a commemorative church service at All Saints' Anglican Cathedral. The Committee also became responsible for a delegation sent to Calgary to honour that municipality's 100th anniversary as a City in 1975.
