50 Years of Historical Treasures

Get decked out in 60s-70s clothes and join us for a celebratory reception. Enjoy heavy hors d’ oeuvres and a DJ spinning groovy tunes while perusing an exhibit of 50 years of CMC history. CMC Leadville archives and plans for organizing, preserving and providing online access for years to come will be exhibited.

  • 1:30 – 3:30pm – 50th Anniversary 50hm (5k) races
  • 1:30pm – Skate Ski 5k Race
  • 2:15pm – Fat Bike 5k Race
  • 3:00pm – Snowshoe 5k Race

As one of the first campuses, archives extend back to the planning and founding of CMC. Attendees will enjoy seeing some of the historic images from the founding of CMC and learning about how these will be digitized and be made available through our library system, Marmot. Jordan Fields from Marmot will explain how that will work and show some examples from the digitization project. John Major, an archivist from CMC Steamboat Springs, will show how he is helping the CMC libraries get their archives in order and accessible, Christine Whittington (library director) and Bob Hartzell (retired faculty) will present items from the collection, and Ed Chusid will discuss historic items from Central Services.
