Keota, CO

and James A. Michener's Centennial

 
Images from The Collections of
The City of Greeley Museums, Greeley, CO
Website created and hosted by
The James A. Michener Special Collection, University of Northern Colorado
Scope Note:
 
The images in these exhibits are from the collections of the City of Greeley Museums, Greeley, Colorado and have been chosen because they relate to the town of Keota, Colorado and are a part of the historical background for the setting of James A. Michener's novel, Centennial.    
 
The material from the City of Greeley Museums comes from a number of photographers and collectors including: Hazel E. Johnson, Flo Hinz, G. N. Allen, Skeets Calvin, Catherine Devereux, Orville Smith, and Robert E. Hanna.  It includes both color and black & white prints, as well as color and black & white negatives and transparencies. In addition, materials from the City of Greeley Museums in other formats have been used, including black & white and color printed material, handwritten and other manuscript material, and drawings.  Images might appear in more than one exhibit.
 
Of special assistance in this project has been Peggy Ford, Research Director of the City of Greeley Museums.
