Irving Andrews should be on this list.

Thank you for your comment. What has been presented in this blog is a short grouping of prominent African Americans in Denver. There are numerous other outstanding African Americans in Colorado, including Irving Andrews, that may be talked about in future blogs.

I continue to be amazed at the vast collection of information that is available about African Americans in Denver, Colorado, and the West; and, is collected and shared by Blair-Caldwell Library. As a black woman born in Sheridan, Wyoming, it really makes me very proud of my western heritage. No more, " I didn't know any black people lived......" Well, they did and they do! Thank you, Annie Nelson

Frank L. Caldwell formerly Franklin Leonard Caldwell, b 6/9/1921 has died 9/18/2016 naturally. A life of firsts for this Denverite. Please contact me at your earliest convenience. 772-871-9289.

Miss Nelson, I hope this will be a regular post on this subject. It is so important to hear more about these powerful Denverites. Thank you.

Mr. Ramsey,

Thank you for your comment. I hope to continue to highlight powerful Denverites in future blog postings. It is important that they be shared with others.

Irving Andrews and Robert Rhone were law partners and have a case dedicated to them on the 2nd floor of the Blair-Caldwell Library. They both earned many accolades. Robert Rhone died at the age of 35 and was a new member of the Colorado State House of Representatives at the time. He has an Inn of Court named after him, the Rhone/Brackett Inn.

Edward J. Dwight, Jr. was the first Black astronaut candidate. He had had many career experiences in life from IBM executive to restauranteer to real estate developer and he is currently a nationally known sculptor. He is the sculptor of the I Have A Dream MLK monument in City Park.

Thank you for your comment.
