Excerpt from Nevada, Worlds Fair Commissioners: State Exhibit In order to fully illustrate Nevada's participation, it will be in keeping with the report of the Commissioners to republish a brief sketch of the Midwinter International Exposition, setting forth the object of its inauguration. Following so closely upon the Columbian Exposition at Chicago, which was the grandest the world ever saw, the attempt seemed audacious, for it could not be expected that it would rival it in its colossal proportions, but it was a bright idea that suggested the possibility of transplanting many of the wonderful exhibits of that exposition to the western shores of the United States, and with them bring together thousands of the wonders of the Pacific Coast that could not be placed on exhibition at the World's Fair. Having taken the step with assurances of aid from the foreign countries, it was fittingly named the California Midwinter International Exposition. Although the time was unpropitious, owing to the financial condition of the country, the people of the Coast believed it would be a healthy enterprise if it could be made a success. A capital of$500, 000 was asked of the citizens of San Francisco to make a success of the enterprise. The effort was conducted on a popular scale, and when$300, 000 was assured, the scheme was inaugurated on a beautiful site in Golden Gate Park on the 14th day of August, 1893. The press of the Coast, halting at first in their opinions as to the success of such a gigantic enterprise, wheeled into line, and their generous aid soon changed the current of an adverse sentiment to one of confidence and marked enthusiasm. The large and beautiful buildings seemed to spring up like magic. In chronicling its advancement toward completion, the press stated "there had never been such a display of activity in any country or in any age of the world." This, with all due deference to the astonishing vitality of the people of Chicago. From the day the first stone was laid only four months remained before the day of opening, as announced, was to take place. A proclamation was issued inviting all foreign countries and the States in the Union to participate. The great fair was formally opened January 27, 1894, amid much pomp and great enthusiasm.
