“Roosevelt Collins (1905-1978) was the first black hired by Colorado College in a position other than janitor or domestic worker. He began working for the college’s athletic department in 1935. During his 35 years with the college, he became an expert athletic trainer. He was a friend and confidant to both students and faculty, as well as a popular figure in the black community. His professional fame spread, and he was once offered a job with the Brooklyn Dodgers.” Story appeared in the Colorado Springs Gazette on February 12, 1992, page B-1. Photo not used.
