The Development of a Program to Make the Historical Museum and Institute of Western Colorado: Grand Junction, Colorado - An Educational Institution.
Starr, John W., III
Completed by a WICHE intern as part of an effort to bring together community organizations with institutions of higher education, the report compiles and assesses the educational program presently offered by the Grand Junction Historical Museum and Institute of Western Colorado. A major objective was to help the museum develop a program to change its image at the local, state, and federal levels from one of a basic depository to that of an educational institution. The first part of the booklet deals with the museum's present image, available educational services, and possible future services. The major portion of the report is comprised of materials prepared by the writer as a direct outgrowth of the study and consists of: 1) a museum tour guide; 2) a community news release; 3) a pamphlet of samples of materials on display at the museum; 4) a suggested Greenbelt proposal; 5) a discussion of how the museum and institute can be of educational assistance to Mesa College; 6) a paper written for dissemination to the community on the need to support the museum; and 7) an evaluation of what services should/could be offered to the community by the museum and institute.
