From the Archives: The oddity of the Boyer Small Books Collection

Carol "Connie" Boyer was a genealogical researcher and head of cataloguing at the Denver Public Library until her retirement in 1988. She continued to gather information on her family's ancestry and, in 2006, donated her work to the library, which now houses the Boyer Family Genealogy in the Western History Collection. But there is a small piece of Boyer's life that didn't seem to fit with the DPL -- and that worked out for the Auraria Library Special Collections Department, which had the perfect square foot of space for this shoebox-sized series.
