General Note:
From Inventory: "San Luis Institute of the Arts and Crafts in San Luis, Colorado. Classes began in 1943. 'The new San Luis division called the San Luis Institute of the Arts and Crafts sort of grew up like Topsy. Few Coloradans probably know of its existence. Dr. (Ira) Richardson (Adams State College president) had an old community WPA building given to the state and around this structure he built a college serving a population that is 90 percent Spanish-American...the amazing thing about this unique college is that the building was acquired without cost to the state, built or improved upon partly by the faculty, students and volunteer help.' Excerpt taken from Mexicans and Hispanos: In Colorado Schools and Communities, 1920-1960, by Ruben Donato, p. 111, 2007."
