This is a last call for tickets for the Harry Adair Horse Drive Open Air Play and Barbecue! We have about forty left from our top number of two hundred tickets.
And here’s another story about Harry Adair.
This is the best photo we have of Harry Adair. It is called “Paying an Election Bet” (SPRA 032.08.08.0585) and is dated July 2, 1917. Harry was involved in politics at many levels. He was on the first Council for the Rural Municipality of Bear Lake when it was formed in December 1912, and he ran in the Provincial Election in 1917 but lost to banker William Innes. You can read about it in the news clipping below.
What surprised me, though, was his support of feminist politician and social activist Nellie McClung. The clipping here, dated October 5, 1920, gives a taste of community life at the Adair ranch.
