Kevin Smith
Curator of Photography @History Colorado
Kevin Smith is the Associate Curator of Photography at History Colorado. He earned a Master’s degree in History from University of Colorado Denver, where he specialized in 20th Century American History and the Cold War. He has also received an Archivist Certification from the Academy of Certified Archivists, coordinated through the Society of American Archivists.

Katie Bush
Digital Imaging Studio Manager @History Colorado
Katie Bush is currently the Digital Imaging Studio Manager for History Colorado. Katie is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Library and Information Sciences at the University of Denver, an ALA-Accredited institution, with a focus in digitization, digital curation, and digital preservation. Although Katie is new to History Colorado, she has worked in a museum and archival environment for over five years, in which she has managed extensive digitization projects. Prior to her work in museums and archives, Katie received professional training in photography during her undergraduate career. This particular skill set has been very beneficial to her position as Digital Imaging Studio Manager because it allows for Katie to be able to digitize artifacts and other collection items that are too fragile to be placed on a flatbed scanner. Katie is able to document all details of such collection items with high resolution DSLR cameras that are available in the Digital Imaging Studio.
