Lois Borland Collection: Series 9

Collection Information

Collection 1, Series 9 1 records storage box, 1 flat box (2 lin. ft.) Finding Aid Prepared By Jennifer A. Vazquez July 2006

Lois Borland (1877-1967) came to the Colorado State Normal School, Gunnison, Colorado in 1914 as the school’s first English professor. She retired in 1942 from Western State College of Colorado after a long career that included many interests. In addition to literature, she developed an interest in local history and was probably the first person in the area to appreciate the value of saving and preserving historical documents. She also was involved in dramatic productions at the college.
