Through Don Taylor, A History Not Forgotten

The history of southern Alberta is in many ways the history of the Calgary Stampede. It’s one of characters and cowboys. It’s one of perseverance and determination. It is a history written by the people, too often forgotten, who pioneered Canada’s west. Don Taylor stands for the values that have defined this history: A pride of place and its people. Perseverance. An entrepreneurial spirit. And a colourful character.

Thanks to the incredible generosity and vision of this true Calgarian, the characters who defined our past will forever be in our future. Don Taylor’s $15 million donation to the Calgary Stampede Foundation will ensure the history of Stampede and southern Alberta be displayed in the new SAM Centre for generations to come. 

The SAM Centre, named for Taylor’s father, will be a western interpretive centre that transforms the traditional museum setting into an interactive educational experience for youth and adults. Through the Stampede archives, permanent and temporary galleries and classrooms, the SAM Centre will tell the stories of the Stampede and Southern Alberta while connecting urban and rural audiences.
