Archive Update: New Collections and Professional Development

This fall, the Water Resources Archive acquired one new donation and finished organizing another. The Archive’s newest collection is all about fish! The Papers of William J. Wiltzius contains the research scrapbooks of author, fishery biologist for the Colorado Game and Fish Department, and expert on early private fish culture in the state Bill Wiltzius. Wiltzius, who recently passed away, decided years ago to give his papers to the Archive when his good friend and fellow Archive donor, Jim Meiman, suggested doing so. He worked on his research up until the end. The updated Papers of Frederic A. Eidsness, Jr. now includes 12 more boxes of speeches, congressional testimony, correspondence, reports, journal articles, and newspaper clippings related to Eidsness’ work on water quality for the Environmental Protection Agency. Eidsness plants to write a book about his time at the EPA using these materials.
