Biographical / Historical
The Historic Bank Notes Collection was donated to the University of Denver by the Treasury Department of the United States Government in 1912. According to the accompaying letter from Assistant Secretary Allen, they were part of an assortment of notes found in the Confederate States of America by the Union Army near the close of the War and were turned over to the Treasury Department in 1867. They were presented to the University of Denver in order that they be preserved and used by the patrons of the library for their historic value. As of September 2013, the collection also includes a scrapbook of "Banknotes From Around The World" which was collected by Henry Blackburn (deceased) and donated by his wife, Catherine Blackburn.
