Architectural plans and drawings of the Denver Museum of Natural History by Denver Museum of Natural History ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
These plans and drawings reflect the history of the Denver Museum of Natural History. The Museum opened to the public in 1908 in a classical revival building that housed glass cases filled with gems, minerals, fossils, taxidermied birds and mammals, and artwork. The first structure of the Museum was the East Wing, finished in 1903, for which no plans or drawings seem to exist, and which only contained a workshop, a heating plant, and collection storage areas. The North Wing addition, also called the Standley Memorial Wing because Mrs. Joseph M. Standley contributed funding in memory of her husband, was added in 1918. The William H. James Memorial Wing, also called the South Wing, was dedicated in 1928. Phipps Auditorium was started in 1938 and completed in 1940. In 1948, the name of the Museum was changed from the Colorado Museum of Natural History to the Denver Museum of Natural History. The new west building was opened in 1953. Southwest and Northwest Wings were added in 1968. An IMAX theater was installed in Phipps Auditorium in 1983. The Northeast and Southeast Wings, also called the Service Building Addition, were completed in 1987; this project included a boiler building, a new north entrance, and atria connecting and enclosing the older building spaces

Rogers, who was a preparator in and later curator of the Colorado Museum of Natural History's Mammals division. (The CMNH is now the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.) The papers date from 1917 to 1958. Among the papers are official "Large Mammal Records" for various species, showing a diagram, measurements, sex and other characteristics for collected specimens. There also are copious amounts of correspondence, typewritten and handwritten, discussing the Mammal Division's field work, including a 1918 letter from Museum director Jesse Figgins designating Rogers the Museum's representative for work in Alaska and the Yukon. A folder from 1949 contains a group of handwritten letters from sixth graders at Denver's Beach Court School, thanking Rogers for a recent tour. The files also contain newspaper clippings, plant and animal lists, equipment lists, exhibit planning notes and procedures files for, among other things, making plaster casts. Rogers also served as building superintendent at the Museum. The files contain letters related to that work (one discusses repairs to the ladies' toilet), along with diagrams (one shows the location of fire extinguishers in the Museum) and floor plans. The second part of the collection, seven folders of Zoology Dept. records dating from 1876 to 1979, contains a mammal accession ledger, historical mammal acquisition records, historical mammal catalog and specimen ledger, documents of historical collections transactions and plans from the 1970s for a butterfly exhibit
