Two young boys on horses each carrying a travois as part of the Pageant of the Northwest in 1914. Hundreds of spectators watch the spectacle seated near and between the Carnegie Library (at left) and Budge Hall (at right). The Pageant of the Northwest was written by eighteen students under the supervision of Orin G. Libby and Fredrick Koch. The pageant employed several students and a few Native American extras to portray the four successive stages of the exploration of the Northwest.
