Dave Bailey Retires from Museum of the West!

Curator of History David Bailey’s Retirement

I have enjoyed being the Curator of History for the last 28 years at the Museums of Western Colorado. The countless exhibits, research projects, publications, expeditions, events, and tours bring back so many great memories. I am deeply indebted to the Directors, staff members, volunteers, and interns who contributed their time and dedication for over two decades to our History Division projects. However, it is time for a new generation of museum professionals to take over and I have decided to retire at the end of 2020.I wish all the best for Director Michaelis, her staff, and volunteers in their future endeavors. – David Bailey
