dc.description.abstractLetters and reports from Charles A. Lory, state and federal agencies, companies, and individuals. C. G. Sargent wrote many letters to Lory over the year, concerning his manuscript on the consolidation of Colorado rural and village schools. Sargent sent the manuscript's table of contents to Lory. In April, Lory wrote of having read the manuscript and provided Sargent with some of his family history: moving to Loveland in 1888, teaching in one room school houses, farming in Johnstown, homesteading just south of Windsor, and attending the State Normal School. Lory also wrote of his daughter Anna's illness and 58-day hospitalization. Sargent visited with the State College of Education (SCE) President William R. Ross, who indicated that he might be open to SCE cooperatively funding publication with the Boettcher Foundation. Sargent asked Lory to send his copy of the manuscript to Dr. Oliver Leonard Troxel at the SCE. Sargent spoke of Mr. Thomas Mahoney, who originally wrote and introduced a consolidation law into the Colorado General Assembly in 1909 that started the process of school consolidation. Troxel wrote Sargent a letter indicating that he thought the manuscript only had local historical value, not current value to the school consolidation process. As a result, SCE did not support publication. Ross wrote that he would speak to Dr. Robert Lawrence Stearns, President of the University of Colorado, to encourage a grant from the Boettcher Foundation for printing Sargent's manuscript. B. F. Coen wrote Lory concerning retirees and included a report: A brief of the case of the earlier retirees of Colorado's institutions of higher education asking for increased retirement payments, in support of House Bill, submitted to members of the Legislature of the 1954 General Assembly of Colorado, January, 1954. Fort Collins City Utilities Manager, G. H. Palmes, wrote to Lory of meetings with Ralph Parshall, a new water extension, and promoting a site for the proposed U. S. Air Academy in the bench land just north and east of Loveland Circle, near the Oklahoma Reservoir in Weld County. Geo. T. Cochran wrote Lory concerning receiving pamphlets related to the Colorado commission, the task force of the Hoover Commission, and included his statement report on ground water effecting fertility of soil as member of Pacific Northwest Development Association.
