Winfield Scott Stratton

Yesterday’s Denver Post ran a column by Tom Noel on the generous philanthropy of Winfield Scott Stratton, a late-19th century mine owner.  The article mentions Dr. Noel’s book Colorado Givers, which you can check out from our library.  We also have back issues of Colorado Magazine, which has included numerous articles over the years on the history of Cripple Creek, where Stratton made his fortune. You can also learn more about Winfield Scott Stratton in Colorado:  A History of the Centennial State, also by Tom Noel and available from our library.
