Famous Coloradans

The State Library’s new website, https://dev.coloradovirtuallibrary.org/, features biographies of famous Coloradans. The bios are written for all ages, particularly so that elementary school students can use them in their Colorado history studies. However, if you find a bio on the website of a person who interests you, but you need more in-depth information, you can always turn to our State Publications collection. Here are a few of the biography subjects and where to find more information within State Publications:

Enos Mills: Drummond, Alexander. Enos Mills, Citizen of Nature. University Press of Colorado, 2002.

Josephine Roche: McGinn, Elinor. A Wide-Awake Woman: Josephine Roche in the Era of Reform. Colorado Historical Society, 2002.
