Presentation Description: The University of Northern Colorado's Archives Department created its Dearfield Collection more than decade ago with donated original Oliver T. Jackson personal, legal, and business documents and historic photographs. A second series of Dearfield materials, including oral history cassettes and historic photographs arrived at UNC with the purchase of Paul Stewart (Black American West Museum founder) of African Americans in the West theme historic materials, many directly or indirectly related to Dearfield. Each year, more documents, photographs, and historic artifacts are added to the university's Dearfield History collections. UNC Archivist Jay Trask provides an update on the growing content and public on-line availability of those collections and their expanding importance to Dearfield public and academic scholarship and legacy.
