Q. Do you have a photograph of my grandfather, who went to the School of Mines?


We don't have photographs of all of the students and faculty of the Colorado School of Mines, but if you can narrow down your ancestor's stay here to a range of years, here are some resources that include photos:

  • Prospector Year Book -- Check the class portraits as well as group (sports team, fraternity, etc.) photos. Prospectors usually include faculty photographs too. Some Prospectors have an index of people in the back of the volume.
  • Oredigger student newspaper -- Early issues are available at Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection, a searchable newspaper database. The Library has microform versions available to the public.
  • Class portraits -- Available for the early years of the School of Mines. Usually displayed on the Library Floor 3 Administration hallway.
