Auraria Campus

Relevant collections:

  • Auraria History Collection
  • West Side Recorder
    West Side Recorder was one of many community-driven and activist newspapers that supported predominantly Chicanx and Latine neighborhoods of West Denver. It reported everything from neighborhood events, to major municipal issues, to the local appearances of activists like Cesar Chavez. It also served as a voice for the community during the displacement of Auraria neighborhood residents prior to the establishment of Auraria Campus. This collection comprises a decade of West Side Recorder from 1964 to 1974 with only a few issue gaps.
  • Bill Trimble Collection
    The Bill Trimble Collection consists of over 500 images documenting the built environment of the Auraria neighborhood prior to its demolition.
