1 items : letter document box
Scope and Contents
From the Collection: The collection consists of materials related to the writing of Phil Goodstein's book, Exploring Jewish Colorado. The book explores Jewish historical sites and life in Colorado, and was published in March 1992 by the Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society. Much of the material used in the book came from the Ira. M. Beck Memorial Archives. The collection is organized by types of material into seven series: correspondence, questionnaires, secondary sources, drafts, galley proofs, photographic images and illustrations, and a computer diskette. It includes materials dated from 1865 to 1992, with the majority of materials from the years 1991 to 1992. It also includes drafts for an article titled, ''The Jews of Capitol Hill,'' which was published in Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Notes, Summer/Fall 1990. The papers also inclued pamphlets, newspaper clippings, manuscript drafts, and photocopies of photographs as well as illustrations from the book. Newspaper clippings cover Jewish synagogues in Colorado, as well as the Guldman, Friedman and Londoner families. Goodstein donated this collection to the Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society at the University of Denver after publication of Exploring Jewish Colorado. The collection was transferred to Special Collections/Archives, at the University of Denver in 2000. Goodstein retains some materials used in writing the book in his personal collection.
