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
The Anderson Sisters Orchestra, which included Alice, Florence, Marie and Ruth, became accomplished musicians under the watchful eye of their parents Martin and Ida. The family moved to Lethbridge and the orchestra quickly became a popular draw for dances in Alberta and neighboring provinces. They played to packed houses throughout their career. In addition to a full year-round touring schedule, they had a weekly radio show on CJOC (broadcast live “from high atop the Marquis Hotel”) and performed during the summer months at dance pavilions across the province. Their five-year engagement at Waterton Lakes National Park Dance Pavilion made them one of the longest running attractions at that venue. During the 1940s they also entertained at World War Two training bases and appeared with dignitaries at events to rally support for the war efforts, including the sale of war bonds. Left to right, at CJOC Radio studio for one of their broadcasts are Ruth, Alice, Florence and Marie.

History / Biographical
The Anderson Sisters Orchestra was one of the most popular groups in Southern Alberta in the 1940s. They played in many towns including summers in Waterton Park and once had their own hall known as The Rainbow Hall in North Lethbridge. The sisters were the daughters of Martin and Ida (Johnson) Anderson, originally of Monitor, Alberta. As very young girls, the sisters (Alice, Florence, Marie and Ruth) became accomplished musicians and eventually formed the orchestra, under the watchful eye of their parents. The family moved to Lethbridge and the group quickly became a popular draw for dances in Alberta and neighboring provinces, playing to packed houses throughout their career. In addition to a full year-round touring schedule, they had a weekly radio show on CJOC (broadcast live “from high atop the Marquis Hotel”) and performed during the summer months at dance pavilions across the province. Their five-year engagement at Waterton Lakes Dance Pavilion made them the longest running attraction at that popular venue.
