Located in Denver, Colorado, the WWII 10th Mountain Division Resource Center was established in 1987 in a cooperative effort of the National Association of the 10th Mountain Division, Denver Public Library, and History Colorado. The goal was to have a single, official repository where 10th Mountain Division veterans and their families could send documents, photographs, films, maps, scrapbooks and other ephemera. Artifact donations include skis, boots, uniforms, climbing equipment, and more. The Resource Center now houses over 800 individual collections, generously submitted by over 1100 donors, making it the largest collection of its kind. Historians, collectors, authors, producers, genealogists, students, and 10th members and their families are just some of the people who have accessed the Resource Center. To round out its collection, the Resource Center is seeking unique items from individual soldiers, especially those who served in the artillery, medical, signal corps, or military police areas.
A display of the Resource Center’s donations has been installed in the WWII 10th Mountain Division Room, located on the fifth floor at the Denver Public library. Papers and photographic materials donated by WWII 10th Mountain Division veterans and their families, make up much of the display. Many artifacts are also stored at History Colorado.
