Colorado State Hospital

Bibliography and Special Thanks

A special thank you to the Pueblo County Western History Archives, whose staff helped our project get off the ground and directed us to other useful archives. The Denver Public Library Western History Archives also helped to provide a number of images and helpful information for the project.  The online archive Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection helped us track down pdf versions of newspapers we found referenced in other media or found scraps of in the Rawlings Library Archives. We had the opportunity to take our own photographs of hospital equipment and imagery at the Colorado State Hospital Museum, which is open every Tuesday.

Thank you, to the staff at the Pueblo County Western History Archives, for allowing us to look though the useful archives of the State Hospital and push our project into the right direction, and for being my Main recourse to this project. Also, a thank you to the manager at the Colorado State Hospital Museum, she allowed us to walk around freely as we took a look at all of their primary sources that had been put on display for the public to see. I also want to take a minute to thank my partner Alex as he helped greatly in getting the project where it is.
