Local History


The University Archives includes several manuscript collections of more general Pueblo and Colorado interest. These include:

Oral History Program

The CSU-Pueblo Archives, with the assistance of CSU-Pueblo classes and community members, has an on-going oral history program. We seek to preserve the personal narratives of Latino men and women who served on the home front and overseas during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the nation's most recent conflicts; Chicanas and Chicanos who were active in the Colorado Chicano Movement, especially in Pueblo, CO; Interviews relating to the Ludlow Massacre; and life histories of Pueblo community members conducted by students at Pueblo West High School.

Ludlow Massacre

The Elias Baca Sound Recordings include an interview with the Ludlow Massacre survivor, as well as corridos he wrote and performed. It also includes interviews with his descendents. 

The Fawn Amber Montoya Collection includes interviews with Ludlow descendents Linda Linville, and the Costa and Bongiorna families. 

Life Histories

The Pueblo West High School Oral History Project files include the life histories of community members conducted by PWHS students.
