A Piece of Chautauqua’s Photographic History: A Presentation of Rocky Mountain Joe Tonight

Chautauqua is hosting a talk series including one on Boulder pioneer, “Rocky Mountain” Joe

“In Chautauqua’s early years, many visitors wandered over to the Woodbine photography studio and sat for their portrait. “Have your face tuck, 15 for 15 cts” read the sign on the building. Joseph Bevier Sturtevant was Chautauqua’s first official resident photographer. His alter ego, “Rocky Mountain” Joe, was a mountain man who supposedly had wild adventures as an Indian scout and Civil War soldier. Joe entertained the children at Chautauqua with tall tales around campfires, although what Joe said couldn’t possibly have been true. But his skill in photography was real and thanks to “Rocky Mountain” Joe, we have a documentation of the people and events of the first decade of the Colorado Chautauqua.”
