Photographs from a 2017 exhibit and event at Colorado State University Libraries depicting the 1992 and 1998 Crosier Mountain, Colorado, prescribed fires. Text, which accompanied the photographs, is included. The event and Archives and Special Collections exhibit showcased the contributions of Paul Gleason to the field of wildland fire science. After retiring from a career as a wildland firefighter, leader, and strategist, Gleason became a faculty member at Colorado State University's Department of Forestry and Natural Resources. He served as an adjunct professor for the Wildland Fire Science program at CSU. Gleason was heavily involved in three significant fires: the Loop Fire in 1966, the Dude Fire in 1990, and the Cerro Grande Fire in 2000.
