Lecture Series
October 15th 2018 - Borrowed Time
Stephen Batura will discuss the photography of Charles S. Lillybridge (1849–1935) and his own paintings and drawings—which derive exclusively from Lillybridge’s images. Batura isn’t concerned about the differences between life in Denver a hundred years ago and Denver today, he’s interested in the similarities. To the artist, the concerns of each generation are largely the same, and they form familiar patterns. Rather than sentimentalizing another era, Batura believes we should examine what’s still alive from the past and how it echoes in our contemporary world.

November 19th 2018 - Denver Water 100 Years: Past, Present and Future – Water Connects Us All
Do you really know water? Water is Denver’s history. Native Americans camped where the Cherry Creek and South Platte River met; Denver evolved from three towns surrounding that confluence. City Ditch supported gold rush settlers. Lack of hydrants left downtown ablaze, then a deadly flash flood decimated West Denver. Examples abound . . . After decades of private water companies—shady deals, court cases, financial ruin—Denver voted to create a public utility in 1918. Denver Water now serves over 1.4 million customers. That expansion involved land acquisition, contentious decisions, engineering marvels and collegial interactions. Learn about the history and future of water in Denver.

January 21st 2019 - Different Kinds of Minds Contribute to Society
People who were different have contributed greatly to society. Many innovators, such as Thomas Edison and Jane Goodall, had an unconventional path to a successful career. What would happen to them today? Edison was described as an addled hyperactive high school dropout. As a child, Dr. Temple Grandin had autism and no speech. Being a visual thinker helped her to be more observant, in turn helping her in a career in animal behavior. She’ll discuss different kinds of minds: photo realistic, visual thinking, pattern mathematical thinking and verbal thinking.

February 18th 2019 - Spare No Pains: Zebulon Pike’s Adventures in the Rocky Mountains
Jared Orsi, professor of history and director of Colorado State University’s Public Lands History Center, will present from his book Citizen Explorer: The Life of Zebulon Pike. The explorer’s baffling activities in the mountains of Colorado between November 1806 and February 1807 have sometimes provoked charges of conspiracy, espionage or incompetence. Asking new questions of old sources, Orsi takes us back in time to see why Pike’s choices made perfect sense to him in his historical moment.

April 15th 2019 - The Murder of Don Antonio Juarez Chavez
On the Santa Fe Trail near Lyons, Kansas, in 1843, the Republic of Texas militia murdered Don Antonio Jose Chavez, a prominent Republic of Mexico citizen, in cold blood. An international incident on US territory, the murder threatened the emerging commerce between the United States and Mexico. Quick action and swift justice for the murderers helped resolve the situation. Ultimately, President Sam Houston signed a Proclamation of Armistice between Texas and the Republic of Mexico. The border reopened, and merchant traffic on the Santa Fe Trail resumed—with military escorts. Tony Juarez is the fourth great-grandson of Don Antonio Juarez Chavez.

May 20th 2019 - Ancient Light
A thousand years ago, the Ancestral Puebloans built a great civilization in a landscape where even now the sky is a powerful presence. In this presentation, we’ll explore the deep understanding of the sky that’s expressed in Ancestral Puebloan art and architecture. We’ll examine the dance of light and shadow that trace the year at Mesa Verde and Chaco Canyon, and the subtle lunar cycles that were celebrated at Chimney Rock. Today, we see the same stars, sun and moon. By understanding them, we reach across the centuries to these ancient astronomers through our shared heritage of the sky.

June 17th 2019 - The State Historian’s Address: Rethinking Colorado’s Native American Heritage
Join our State Historian, Tom “Dr. Colorado” Noel, as he reflects on five decades of studying Colorado history and how he has seen the field rethink certain aspects of the state’s heritage. He will take us on a journey to look farther back, to the history of the “First Coloradans.” This examination includes some of the disservice done by historians themselves in their retelling of their narratives. From hostile or patronizing historians to others who might write Native Americans out of the story completely, the descendants of those first Coloradans themselves are too often left out of the research and retelling. He’ll explore known events, mysteries remaining, and the realities of the modern world for Native Americans, who are, even today, still writing the stories of the First Coloradans.
