About the Casper Chronicles
The Casper Chronicles is a Ken Burns’ style of history telling. The writings portray immediacy that only personal remembrances can provide. The tales bring to life the early times of Casper and relive the struggles and commitment that brought the land fromsage brushprairie to a thriving metropolis in the middle of Wyoming. These first and second hand accounts of the building of Casper, relating the struggles and perseverance of the community fathers are important perspectives to remember. The majority of the memories are dated from the late 1880’s to 1910’s. Except for the dedication of the women of the Zonta Club to compile and publish the Chronicles, these tales would have been lost forever.

The book is in the authors’ own words, style, grammar, and punctuation to preserve its historical and colloquial significance.Only minor changes for significant typographical errors were made.

The Cadoma Foundation is committed to preserving tales and memories of the generations that followed. Sequels to the Chronicles are planned that will share stories of subsequent generations that saw Casper “roar” in the 1920’s, bust in the ‘30’s and rise again. If you have personal and family stories that should become a part of these publications, please contact us.
