The University Archives were originally established upon Chancellor Moore's appeal during AY 1895-96 for copies of University publications issued in previous years, particularly since the resumption of classes in 1880. Various rare book and manuscript collections have been received by the University Libraries at least since the 1920s, and possibly earlier. The Ira M. Beck Memorial Archives (now the Ira M. and Peryle Hayutin Beck Memorial Archives of Rocky Mountain Jewish History) was established in 1976 in memory of Denver businessman Ira M. Beck. It was a joint program of the Rocky Mountain Jewish Historical Society and the University of Cenver Center for Judaic Studies, and in 1992 became a official part of the Department of Special Collections and Archives.
