Men of the World War II 10th Mountain Division
More than 30,000 soldiers served in the 10th Mountain Division during World War II. Now their stories, photos and memorabilia are available at the Denver Library’s Resource Center for visitors to learn about the history of this mountain and winter warfare-trained division.
In 1987 the National Association of the 10th Mountain Division created the “10th Mountain Division Resource Center” located in the Denver Public Library and the Colorado Historical Society. These organizations, in cooperation with the 10th Mountain Division National Association and the Foundation, have created a vast repository of World War II 10th Mountain memorabilia.
In the collection, there are:
- More than 1,000 individual collections of several thousand photographs, records, documents, maps and personal papers
- Three-dimensional artifacts all of which have been donated by 10th Mountain Veterans and their families.
- A database that lists some 33,000 soldiers who served with the Tenth during the WWII period (November 1941 through November 1945)
Extensive information about the collection is now available to researchers, film producers and others through an international database in 16,000 libraries throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Today, the Foundation funds this archival work.
