Since 1915, Colorado State University has used its Pingree Park Mountain Campus, located approximately two hours west of Fort Collins, Colorado, between Rocky Mountain National Park and Roosevelt National Forest, for field studies and research in natural resources management. In 2015, the university renamed the site CSU Mountain Campus. The Pingree Park Collection is an amalgamation of donations by several individuals connected to the campus. Current and retired faculty of the Warner College of Natural Resources provided historical photographs, oral history transcripts, articles, clippings, publications, student projects, DVDs and floppy disks, and audio and video cassette tapes. Facilities personnel added grant proposals, drawings, and project plans for the historic restoration of numerous buildings. This digital collection, with materials dated 1950 to 2013, contains photographs of the campus from the 1950s and four groupings of summer session posters covering 1970 to 2013.
