Tom Noel, “Dr. Colorado” Honored as 12th Recipient of Denver Public Library’s Eleanor Gehres Award
Known as "Dr. Colorado," Tom has been involved with the Library serving on several committees for over 20 years, and has donated numerous materials and photos to the Western History and Genealogy Department. He is also one of the Library’s favorite customers.
“Without the Denver Public Library’s fabulous Western History & Genealogy Department, I and other historians, writers and teachers would be in big trouble,” says Noel. “Nowhere on this planet can you find a more extensive collection of Coloradoiana or a friendlier, more knowledgeable, and more helpful staff.”
