Observations from the archives, 1963: Jill Hultman is crowned Viking Queen
1913, 100 years ago: The big event toward which you have been looking begins! Alexandria Chautauqua "brings a bundle of joy to the people," including a magnificent singing orchestra. "Get away from the daily grind of work. Take a change from the same old thing. The arch enemy of human progress is the rut. The Chautauqua is a great advertisement for the town. The Chautauqua affords a real vacation and does it at very small cost." $2 buys a season ticket good for entire assembly (four days).
