Biographical / Historical

Fred Mazzulla was born in Trinidad, Colorado in 1903. He grew up in Salida, Colorado. He graduated from University of Denver in 1929. He became an attorney in the 1930s. Mazzulla and his wife, Jo, published several small history booklets that were sold in tourist shops. He collected images of the Old West including photographs of the women who worked in bawdyhouses and executions. His historical work was controversial, and he is quoted as saying: ''I'm no stickler for historical accuracy. Sometimes it takes showmanship to make history interesting.'' Mazzulla died in January 1981.
