Librarian James gives us an explosive tale (we couldn’t help ourselves!) in this story of the Continental Oil Company (Conoco) refinery conflagration on October 3, 1978.
Librarian Brian’s investigation of Colorado’s self-hanging machine shows us the triumphs and pitfalls of this late 19th century attempt to make executions more humane.
Shelver Chris’s descriptions of hucksters always a delight, but this one about George Hull’s false petrified “giant” reminds us that “fake news” has existed since time immemorial.
Archivist Katie delivers a good old-fashioned ghost story in this true tale of the Gano house, or Bradmar, and its spine-tingling spirit antics.
With a KKK pamphlet in hand, Librarian Alex reminds us that the days, and certainly the language, of the Ku Klux Klan are not as distant as we would hope.
Finally we have an oldie but a goodie from December 2017 (I know, we're kind of cheating). Archivist Katie takes us on a tour through the Daniel’s and Fisher Department Store from the entrance to the tower.
