The Colorado Beekeepers Association (also known more recently as the Colorado State Beekeepers Association) was organized in 1938 and has provided information and resources for commercial beekeepers as well as hobbyists. To support better beekeeping methods and a more unified system of apiculture in the state, the association invited local and national experts to speak at annual association meetings, promoted legislation related to apiary inspections and honey marketing, and cooperated with agricultural college entomologists to produce the B Notes newsletter. The collection consists of minutes, correspondence, financial records, newsletters, and reference files. Digitized materials include B Notes newsletter ranging from 1950-1988.
