Sample text

36 In Cartwright he exemplified his paper’s advocacy of good citizenship by playing football, performing on the horn in the town band, and transporting local boys to baseball games in his buckboard. As local institutions sprang up, he played a prominent role. He was on the executive of the Board of Trade and the Cartwright Rink Company. After selling the newspaper in 1910, Stead moved to High River, where he and a partner established the Alberta Automobile Company, a McLaughlin-Buick agency. This move reflected his passionate interest in modern technology.

Growing up with the region as it evolved from the remote frontier to which the family had journeyed by train through the United States, followed by a 120-mile wagon ride to the homestead, to a land of sophisticated cities and transportation networks, Stead embraced the modern optimism of the settlement era. 39 By 1905 his newspaper featured comics and fashion advice.
