Collection: Women in Colorado: Hidden Faces

The “Hidden Faces” collection consist of interviews with women living in all parts of Colorado. Most of the interviews were with women over seventy years of age who have recollections of life in Colorado before 1920. The purpose of the project was to provide Coloradans with exposure to the “missing half” of state history and to reassure women that they are very much a part of history. The interviews were collected in the 1970s.
