Abstract: History professor Sidney Heitman established the Colorado State University Germans
from Russia in Colorado Study Project in 1975. The study project focused on northern
Colorado and conducted extensive interviews with Germans from Russia. The
four-year project focused on the influence Germans from Russia had on Colorado,
since they constituted the state's second largest ethnic group. The development of a
comprehensive collection of material on Volga Germans in Colorado was a high
priority of the project. The collection includes project files, oral history tapes and
transcripts, conference papers, undergraduate student research, clippings, slides, and
sound recordings. Personnel files and some oral histories are restricted.
