10th Mountain Division Resource Center – Preserving Our Stories

The 10th Mountain Division Resource Center, established at the request of veterans in 1987, is divided between the Denver Public Library Western Genealogy Department and History Colorado.

The library houses military documents, correspondence, photographs, oral his- tory recordings, film, maps and other such “flat” materials, and the museum houses three-dimensional artifacts in- cluding uniforms, equipment and even a Studebaker M29 Weasel.

As archivist of the 10th Mountain Division Resource Center, Keli Schmid maintains collections and ensures the preser- vation of materials. “I process new acquisitions, assist with research requests, and I help descendants and historians fill in the stories of individual soldiers and the time they spent with the Division.” The best way to contact Keli is by email at kschmid@denverlibrary.org.
