You are invited to check out the collection of Historical Materials on the section website. Materials include Meeting Reports from (almost) all meetings between 1917 and 1998, narrative summaries by David Ballew, and another narrative, with emphasis on Colorado College, by Bill Ramaley.
This is still a work in progress! Those with time, energy, and interest are invited to study these materials and contribute to understanding the history of our section.
