The 1904 library building that became the CU Theater.

Originally one room in Old Main, the 1877 Buckingham Library at CU was the start of our information services. Pictured here is the freshly finished interior of the 1904 library building that we now know as the University of Colorado Theater. This 1904 image and other the turn of the century campus images can be found in the J. Raymond Brackett Photograph Collection held in the CU Boulder Archives.

On June 6, 2018 the University of Colorado Boulder Libraries will celebrate the centennial anniversary of the Archives. This is story #2 in our series:100 Stories for 100 Years from the Archives!
