Colorado Heritage Magazine - Spring-2020

In this issue, a smart comedy about ordinary people was just the ticket for theatergoers in the wake of World War II. Two Colorado women joined forces to make it happen, garnering a Pulitzer Prize in the process. Read a study in contrasts as the towns of Silverton and Gunnison respond to the so-called Spanish flu of 1918 and '19, thanks to fresh takes from today's historians and the hosts of our Lost Highways podcast. See how Coloradans have organized in times of crisis, and find out how History Colorado is documenting this historic moment for future generations while reaching out in new ways to connect with today's audiences.
