  • Oral History Project

    captures the life stories and careers of 50 Luminarias whose bar admissions and work are historically significant to the United States. Beginning Spring 2020, these Luminarias will be professionally videotaped in the beautiful Hughes Rare Book Room at DU Sturm College of Law.  Each individual video will be available to students on-line and as a compendium, creates a unique educational program.

    • During the years 1880 (or earlier) through the end of 1980
    • Admitted* to a state bar or Puerto Rico from 1880 (or earlier) to 1980

     

     Visiting Scholar Atencio welcomes the following types of materials:

    • Photographs, professional and personal, from birth through her career
    • Articles written by or about the Luminaria
    • Other writings by the Luminaria (poems, stories, books, etc.)
    • Correspondence, professional or personal, to or from the Luminaria
    • Resumes and biographies

    • Videos about the Luminaria or videos in which the Luminaria appeared
