Besides the database, there are many other helpful resources, as well. If the subject of your research held a leadership position, check out Presidents and Speakers of the Colorado General Assembly: A Biographical Portrait from 1876, also produced by Colorado Legislative Council. Here you can find lengthier biographies on the House and Senate leaders from 1876 to 2011, along with photos.
Hundreds of biographies of important Coloradans prior to 1927 are also available online in volumes 4 and 5 of the Colorado Historical Society's History of Colorado. Many of these biographies include photos.
Finally, you can view the official directories of state legislators back to 1972 via our library. These directories include not only names, parties, and Capitol contact information, but also in many cases home addresses, occupations, spouses' names, committee information, and even seating charts for the House and Senate Chambers.
A few legislators, such as Helen Ring Robinson, Richard Castro, and William Hamill, have even had stand-alone biographies written about them, which you can check out from our library. Other information can be found in reports of committees and state agencies; for these and other resources search our library's online catalog.
