Scope and content
Booklet titled: "Diamond Jubilee of Confederation - June 30, 1927 - 'Let us now praise famous men.'" Below the title it notes: "Department of Education-Alberta."
The front cover is brown construction paper, on which a red border has been drawn. The top contains the Albertan coat of arms, and the interior has a picture of the fathers of confederation in b&w. The picture looks to have been done in ink, and there is a British flag and globe, along with a stem of maple leaves behind the photo. The back cover contains a photo of the Union Jack and a poem titled: "The Union Jack." The interior contains the details of the programme to be carried out during the school day, including the raising of the flag, the singing of the national anthem, and a pageant for Canada’s 60th birthday. Also contains a music score for The Maple Leaf, and a picture of His Majesty King George V.
Program is in good condition, with a small amount of yellowing apparent on the pages and cover.
