Project description: Oral history interviews conducted in 1994-1996 with past and present residents of the Daniels Gardens community by the Daniels-Welchester Homeowners' Association in Jefferson County, Colorado. Daniels Gardens was founded during the Depression years of the 1930s. Interviews include members of former homestead families as well as their children.
Thanks to the generosity of the John W. Emery Family, in 2018 History Colorado hired an Assistant Curator of Oral History to manage all aspects of History Colorado’s oral history collections. In October of 2018, an initial survey of the 700 + recordings identified as oral histories began. The goal of the project includes adding the material to the Argus database and increasing its exposure and access.
