Collection Title Barry Matchett University Park Oral History Collection, Oral History Tapes
Date Created 1986
Creator(s) Breck, Allen duPont
Description Dr. Allen Breck discusses the University Park neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. Breck notes that although a number of professionals still live in the area, there are not as many University of Denver faculty members with homes in the neighborhood as there were in past years. He speculates that this may be due to the fact that University Park houses are more expensive. He discusses schools in the area, and the positive effect that living in the neighborhood has had on his life. He also discusses zoning issues and how the community and the University of Denver fought changes that they perceived would have a negative effect on the area. He concludes with a brief history of the origin of the neighborhood, as the Union Colony started by John Evans in 1886.
