The Cree and Weiser families were associated both as pioneers in Georgetown, Colorado and as early supporters of the University of Denver. John Cree was a Methodist minister, a founding trustee of the University of Denver (Colorado Seminary), and Postmaster of Georgetown. Dr. Reuben Bossart Weiser was a Colorado State Senator, Georgetown dentist, and Dean of D.U. Dental College. The papers contain biographical and genealogical material about those men and their families.
The University of Denver was a participant in the Urban Observatory, a collaboration of city officials and colleges and universities to study the research resources and needs of an urban city. The project began in 1970 with support from the National League of Cities and funding from various Federal Agencies. The reports of the project describe the economic and social situation in Denver, studying attitudes of the citizens to various urban problems.
