Legislator Biographies





This online database provides legislative information on former and current Colorado senators and representatives appointed or elected to the Colorado territorial or state legislature. The Colorado Joint Legislative Library staff developed these legislative profiles with these information fields.


This database was developed as a research tool, and while each Colorado legislator is represented, this database is a work in progress.  The library does not guarantee the accuracy of the information in the database.


Sources used to compile information include; legislative manuals; legislative journals; session laws; abstracts of votes cast; directories; press books; obituaries; news clippings; The Denver Post newspaper files; Denver Public Library Western History collection, and family supplied information. 

If you have more information on any legislator here, please e-mail us  or send a letter with documentation to:
