These papers consist of notes, photos, drafts and research gathered in preparation for Lisa Godfrey's thesis, "Mining the Colorado Plateau: The Story of Calamity Mesa 1910-1970." The thesis is an examination of a mining community in southwestern Colorado, and was prepared as part of an application to designate the area as a national historic site. Copies of the thesis are available on micro-form, both in Special Collections and in the USU library's micro-form area.
The first four boxes contain research files and drafts of the thesis. Boxes 6 and 7 are interviews on cassette tapes. The last box holds tapes, notepads and slides of Colorado.

Acquisition Information :
These papers were donated to Special Collections following the completion of Lisa Godfrey's USU MA thesis in History in 1991 by Dr. Ross Peterson, who was the major advisor for this project. Partial funding for this project came from the Bureau of Land Management. Research support also came from the Museum of Western Colorado, located in Grand Junction. As a result of this support, both the BLM office in Denver and the museum in Grand Junction also have copies of Ms. Godfrey's interviews and transcripts of them. Their holdings, however, do not necessarily exactly duplicate what is housed in this collection.Processing Note :
