History / Biographical
Mark Campbell was born and raised in Lethbridge, and he attended the radio arts program at Lethbridge College. Actively engaged in the local fine arts community throughout his life, Campbell worked as a radio broadcaster in the 1970s-1980s. He transitioned to television broadcasting in 1993, working for Global Lethbridge. It was while working at the local radio station 1090 CHEC in the early 1980s that Campbell started the Greetergrammers. The Greetergrammers were a group of friends that could be hired to sing and entertain for scheduled groups around town, and perform to unsuspecting individuals. The group could be hired to perform for birthdays, anniversaries, proposals, going-away parties, or any other special occasion that the client would request. The client would contact Mark Campbell and arrange to have their loved one or friend serenaded by the Greetergrammers at a specific time and place. The group would show up at the arranged location, and surprise the individual, and serenade them with a personalized song based off of a famous tune. As the Greetergram performances started to catch on, Mark Campbell kept schedule books of all of their performances, starting from 1984-2010; however, the Fonds are missing the 2004-2009 schedule books. Information contained in the schedule books include the names of the clients arranging the performances, the unsuspecting individual to be serenated, a few personal characteristics of the individual, and where the performance would take place. The Greetergram performances lasted for approximately 36 years, performing to over 20,000 people.

History / Biographical
In 1996, a group of riding enthusiasts, amateur historians, and community minded volunteers formed the Riders of the Plains Commemorative Troop. The ROTP’s original purpose was to recreate the riding traditions of the North West Mounted Police, with trail rides and commemorative wagon treks, and participation in public events with period uniforms, drills, firearms, and horses and tack. The six original members of the Troop formed a non-profit society in 1996 with two purposes:
To preserve and protect the history of the North West Mounted Police
To advance the education of the public as it relates to the history of the NWMP. Members participated as a commemorative troop in various events across Western Canada and Montana, including:
NWMP Boundary Commission Wagon Trek, 1997 and 1998
RCMP 125 March West, 1999
Due North wagon trek of the Whoop-Up Trail, 2000-2001
Fort Whoop-Up annual Wild West Weekend, one of the largest re-enactments events in Western Canada. The troop participated in several films, including:
Parks Canada production of the “Battle of Batoche”
CBC production of “Canada, a People’s History”
History Channel’s “The Great March West”
A Scattering of Seeds’ “Nevitt”. In addition, the troop travelled to Batoche, Saskatchewan, Battleford, Saskatchewan, Fort Steele, British Columbia, Fort Walsh, Saskatchewan, Rawleigh, Alberta, and Fort Benton, Montana. They were trained in firearms drill, horsemanship and infantry drill. As early as 1997, the ROTP received a lease on the original site of the Macleod NWMP Barracks, which was home to the North West Mounted Police, the Royal North West Mounted Police and the present day Royal Canadian Mounted Police during the period 1884 to 1922. The ROTP immediately began to plan for restoration and preservation of the site, including recreating the historic flagpole, identifying building sites, gathering of artifacts, conducting research, and building a dedicated membership and an array of alliances. ROTP efforts resulted in the declaration and protection of the site as a Provincial Historic Resource in 2001. Subsequently, the ROTP proposal for funding under the Centennial Legacy Program was approved, providing $1.6 million dollars for reconstruction and restoration of site structures to the late 1890’s period. In addition, the ROTP raised $250,000 in various forms to assist the project. Concurrent with the design and construction of the three reconstructed buildings and the development of the site itself, the ROTP worked hard to accumulate historical and interpretive materials relating to the Barracks period. Replica uniforms and saddles were commissioned. The ROTP celebrated the Official Opening of the Barracks in August of 2005. Unfortunately, relationships with the Fort Macleod Historic Area Society and the Town of Fort Macleod began to sour soon afterwards, culminating in an unfortunate lawsuit in July of 2007 against the ROTP, Fort Whoop Up and two individuals. This, in turn, resulted in a forensic audit, completed in July, 2008 by the Government of Alberta, which found no evidence of fraud, personal gain, or illegal use on the part of the ROTP. The audit also indicated that the major inventory items (uniforms, saddles, firearms and wagons) were properly accounted for.
