Several women in rodeo outfits from the Westermeier Collection

Out of town for Spring Break with the squad? Bet you don't have this level of style!

The Clifford and Therese Westermeier Papers held at the CU Boulder Archives contain research from Clifford's career in history and art. His specialty was the cowboy, the rodeo, wild west shows, and Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders, extending from the late 19th century to the 1970s. His photographs and postcards of rodeos, cowboys and cowgirls are extensive and reflective of their eras.

The University of Colorado Boulder Libraries will celebrate the centennial anniversary of the Archives on June 6, 2018. This is story #28 in our series: 100 Stories for 100 Years from the Archives!
