Livestock and Rodeo Clubs Collection
In the spring of 1912, George F. Morton, head of the animal husbandry department, gathered junior and senior student members together to organize the CAC (Colorado Agricultural College) Livestock Club. The organization was pivotal in the founding of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) and sponsored events such as the Skyline Stampede Rodeo and the Little National Western Livestock Show. The Rodeo Club was formed in the mid-1940s and existed alongside the Livestock Club, eventually taking over the sponsorship of the Skyline Stampede Rodeo. Materials include photographs, meeting minutes, correspondence, newspapers, newspaper clippings, newsletters, books, event programs, brochures, flyers, and pamphlets.
Digitized items in the Repository include: Skyline Stampede programs.
