The "Father of Interstate River Compacts," Delph E. Carpenter served the state of Colorado as a lawyer, state senator, and river commissioner. He drew on his family's pioneering, farming, and irrigating experiences to conceive new ways for arid western states to share their rivers. The compacts he wrote, negotiated, and promoted are still in place today--and are still debated.
Delphus Emory Carpenter was born May 13, 1877, the second son of Leroy S. and Martha Bennett Carpenter, who were among the original pioneers of the Union Colony of Colorado. Delph grew up in Greeley working on the family farm and graduated from Greeley High School in 1896. Having an interest in water law, he attended the University of Denver's night law school, graduating in 1899. After being admitted to the bar the same year, he returned to Greeley to practice law, preferring to work on water-related issues, but taking other cases to make ends meet. In 1907, he successfully defended an accused murderer, Charles Simonson, and gained increasing notoriety in the community. He also served as attorney for the towns of Ault, Eaton, and Evans.
Long having an interest in politics, Carpenter ran for state senator in the seventh district in 1908 and won, becoming the first such officeholder to be a Colorado native. He served from 1909 until 1913, losing his 1912 bid for re-election. While in the senate, Carpenter was a member of its committee on agriculture and irrigation and the judiciary committee among others. He had many achievements while in office, perhaps the most significant being the Carpenter Reservoir Bill (1911), which protected senior rights of reservoir owners against ditch companies with junior rights.
Concurrent with his senatorial service, Carpenter served as the attorney for the Greeley-Poudre Irrigation District. The District's construction of a tunnel to divert water from the Laramie River into the Cache la Poudre River prompted Wyoming to file a lawsuit against Colorado, immediately accepted by the United States Supreme Court. Carpenter was appointed lead counsel for Colorado. Preparations began in 1911, and Carpenter argued twice before the Supreme Court (1916 and 1918), but the Wyoming vs. Colorado decision did not come until 1922. This involvement and time span, in addition to a suit brought by Nebraska, led Carpenter to consider ways other than litigation to solve interstate water conflicts.
Following his senatorial service, Carpenter was appointed Colorado's interstate streams commissioner. By 1920, the idea of invoking the U.S. Constitution's compact clause (Article I, section 10) to solve interstate water disputes was forefront in Carpenter's mind. His guiding precept became equitable apportionment of interstate streams through compact agreements. He first publicly proposed this idea in August 1920 at the League of the Southwest conference in relation to the Colorado River. The League approved Carpenter's proposal, and he then began preparing for the negotiations.
The seven Colorado River Basin states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming) each named a commissioner, and Colorado River Commission meetings began in January 1922 with Herbert Hoover, Secretary of Commerce, as the federal government's representative. The meetings continued throughout the year and concluded November 24th with the signing of a compact adopted by the commissioners. Seven more years passed before six of the states and Congress ratified the Colorado River Compact. (Arizona ratified in 1944.) Carpenter spent these years traveling widely to testify, interpret, and advocate in its favor, as well as writing and negotiating other compacts, including ones on the La Plata, Arkansas, Laramie, North Platte, Rio Grande, Republican, and South Platte rivers--some of which never came to fruition.
Carpenter served as Colorado's compact commissioner until 1933. By that time, his slowly failing health had deteriorated to a severe point. He suffered almost constant pain from 1922 with a neuritis giving symptoms of Parkinson's disease. From 1934 on, he was bedridden at his home in Greeley, cared for mainly by his wife. He died at the Island Grove Park hospital on February 27, 1951.
Delph Carpenter received the University of Colorado Medal of Honor in 1923 for distinguished public service as well as an honorary LL.D. from the same institution in 1927. Carpenter was religiously a Methodist and politically a Republican. He was also a Mason and a member of the Royal Arcanum as well as a breeder of registered shorthorn cattle, on his Crow Creek Ranch, fifteen miles northeast of Greeley. With all his other activities, he found time to serve as the secretary/treasurer for the Union Colony of Colorado for a number of years. Carpenter enjoyed hunting and occasionally wrote short stories, poetry, and other creative pieces.
The woman who stood by Carpenter throughout his life was born Ann Michaela Hogarty in 1878 and went by "Dot" later in life. She was the fifth and youngest child of Union Colony pioneers Michael J. and Sarah Carr Hogarty. She, like Delph, was a member of Greeley High School's Class of 1896, and she earned a degree from the Colorado State Normal School (now the University of Northern Colorado). She married Carpenter in 1901 and they had four children: Michaela Hogarty (1902-1997); Donald Alfred (1907-1993); Sarah Hogarty (1909-1994); and Martha Patricia ("Patsy"; 1914-1990). She was active in church and charity work in between traveling with and caring for her husband. Dot died in Greeley in 1980 at age 101.
Donald followed in his father's footsteps, earning his law degree in 1931 from National University in Washington, D.C., becoming a lawyer and working with his cousin in Texas. He returned to Greeley in 1934 but six years later was appointed secretary to Congressman William Hill, causing another move to Washington. Following army service during World War II in both Europe and Asia, Donald again returned to Greeley. He then served as county judge in Weld County from 1946 to 1952 and was elected district judge in 1952, holding that office as well as water court judge until 1978. He maintained a private law practice after retirement from the court. Donald married Evelyn Ward in 1941, and they had two children: William (1948) and Ward (1952). Following Evelyn's 1963 death, Donald married Doris Piedalue Baney (1924-2014) in 1965. Donald and Doris were honored as grand marshals of the Greeley Independence Stampede Parade in 1979.
The pioneering spirit of both the Carpenter and Hogarty families tells something of the influences on Delph and Dot during their upbringing, and in turn on Donald and his siblings. Leroy Carpenter (1843-1927) and four of his twelve siblings (Peter, Sarah, Silas, and Mattie) moved to the Union Colony from Tipton, Iowa, in 1871 with their father Daniel (1796-1884) and his second wife Nancy Scott Carpenter (Leroy's mother; 1809-1886). Daniel, born in Vermont, had served as a soldier in the War of 1812 and later lived in New York, Ohio, and Iowa. Once in Colorado, the Carpenters established a farm based on irrigated agriculture. In 1872, Leroy returned to Iowa to marry Martha Bennett (1854-1930), a teacher, who then joined him in Colorado. They were actively involved in their burgeoning community and its Methodist Episcopal church, and they raised three children: Alfred Bennett (1873-1953?), Delphus Emory (1877-1951), and Fred George (1881-1963), who in turn collectively raised twelve grandchildren.
The Hogartys exhibited similar westward peripatetic tendencies. Born in Ireland, Michael J. Hogarty (1836-1925) lived in several locations in the eastern United States and in 1863 joined the 141st New York Volunteer Infantry as a private to fight in the Civil War. Wounded in the eye in 1864, he was discharged within a few months and returned to New York to marry Sarah Carr (1844-1918) the same year. Hogarty reenlisted in 1865 and after the war continued to serve in the regular army as a lieutenant in New York and the Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) until 1870, when he retired on account of his wound. He was later promoted to the rank of captain. The Hogartys had five children, the youngest three born after their move to the Union Colony in 1871: Harriet Carr ("Hattie"; 1869-1948); Mary Tuttle ("Mame"; 1870-1910); William Patrick (1872-1944); Barry (1876-1961); and Ann Michaela ("Dot"; 1878-1980). Mame married Bruce Eaton, son of Colorado governor Benjamin Eaton, in 1891, and had five children with him. The Hogartys farmed near Greeley until 1904 when M. J. and Sarah moved to National City, California.
Many of the family members are buried in Greeley's Linn Grove Cemetery, including four generations of Carpenters: Daniel and Nancy, Leroy and Martha, Delph and Dot, and Donald, Evelyn, and Doris. For biographical information about various family members, the best sources are found within this collection as well as The History of Colorado, S. J. Clarke Publishing Company, 1918-1919, a five volume set. The only book-length biography of Delph Carpenter is Daniel Tyler's Silver Fox of the Rockies: Delphus E. Carpenter and Western Water Compacts, University of Oklahoma Press, 2003, which relied heavily upon this collection.
The Papers of Delph E. Carpenter and Family consists of documents dated 1827 to 1992, with the bulk falling from 1870 to 1951. The focus of the collection is Delph Carpenter's work on interstate river compacts (primarily the Colorado River Compact) and legal cases (primarily Wyoming vs. Colorado). However, the documentation goes far beyond these to include other professional activities, personal life, and family members. Carpenter's service as a state senator is documented more minimally than his cattle breeding business. His school years, creative writings, speaking engagements, and home life are represented by various kinds of documents. Notable family members represented in the collection are son Weld County Judge Donald A. Carpenter, pioneer father Leroy S. Carpenter, and father-in-law and Civil War veteran Captain Michael J. Hogarty. Significant documentation related to the Union Colony of Colorado exists as well. Further subjects beyond water rights adjudication and interstate river compacts this collection can inform include Colorado state politics, the role of the federal government, pioneer life, family relations, and women's activities. Predominant material types include correspondence, minutes, legal briefs, financial papers, reports, publications, speeches, diaries, clippings, photographs, maps, certificates, scrapbooks, and artifacts.
The materials in the collection have been arranged into series primarily by material type, with three series of Delph Carpenter's documents further separated out. Subseries and categories were created as necessary for additional clarity. Extensive attention was given to arrangement of files and even items in some series.
The collection consists of 10 series in 150 boxes, 3 flat files, and 9 tubes:

Papers of Delph E. Carpenter and Family, Water Resources Archive, Colorado State University.


The Papers of Delph E. Carpenter and Family was donated to the Water Resources Archive by brothers William and Ward Carpenter in May 2004. An addition of photographs, a map, and a program was donated on behalf of William and Ward Carpenter by Doris Carpenter in October 2010. A further addition from Mrs. Carpenter came in February 2013 and consisted of a set of hydrographs (Box 129) and some rare books. The latter, along with further similar gifts, were added to Special Collections, except for duplicates which were returned. Three further additions were donated by the Carpenter brothers in 2015 following Mrs. Carpenter's death. These materials can be found in boxes 130-149 as well as five oversize folders.


The only materials appraised for retention decisions were publications, including books, reports, government documents, newspapers, and clippings, as well as a few oversized items. Any of these materials having no clear evidence of use or relation to the family or their usual subjects of interest were not retained. Some novels and other light reading also were not kept, as was the case for some moldy items beyond salvage. Many federal government documents on compact-related subjects were not retained as they are easily accessible elsewhere. A partial list of books not kept is available. These materials went through the normal library selection process to be added to the main stacks or Special Collections as appropriate.


Work on this collection began in May 2004 with a condition inspection, primarily to identify the presence of mold. Some materials had gotten wet during a flood in the Carpenter family basement in 1992, causing mold growth sometime following that and/or during storage at the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District in Loveland (1993-2003). Evidence of mold was found to a greater or lesser extent in nearly two-thirds of the original boxes, and though the mold was dormant, any materials not weeded in those boxes went through a complete cleaning process performed by the Libraries' Preservation Services Department. A contracted conservator cleaned and flattened a portion of the oversized materials.

Processing involved removing metal fasteners, rubber bands and binders; plastic clips were used where needed. Also completed: unfolding folded documents, sleeving or encapsulating fragile items, photocopying newspaper clippings, inserting acid-free paper on either side of acidic documents, and segregating photographs. Exact duplicates beyond two copies (occasionally three) were removed. Mailing envelopes were discarded unless needed for context. All materials were rehoused in acid-free containers. Rolled and some folded oversized items were prepared for storage in flat files or in tubes if extra-large. Photographs were sleeved when possible, otherwise were protected with polyester sheets. Nitrate negatives were scanned and discarded. Glass plate negatives were placed in paper envelopes in padded boxes. Framed items were removed from their frames whenever possible. One deteriorating photo album was disassembled. Wrappers were created for fragile bound volumes. Artifacts were given special storage. The audio reel was digitized by a vendor. Processing was completed in September 2005 with the assistance of students.

Materials donated in 2010 were incorporated in October 2011. One framed photograph was removed from its frame and the map was flattened. At the same time, photocopies created from collection items, mostly Leroy Carpenter diaries, were added to the collection in one box at the end. The hydrographs donated in 2013 were incorporated in July 2014.

Processing of the materials donated in 2015 was completed in January 2016. Generally, all previous processing actions were applied, with the exception of photocopying newspaper clippings. Several published maps and one newspaper issue were removed to be added to Special Collections. Any duplicates or unnecessary items removed from the collection were returned to the donor. Materials originally part of this collection but used by biographer Daniel Tyler and retained in his own files were extracted from his collection (WDTP) and added in July 2017 in Box 150.

Related Collections

The Carpenter family donated a portion of Delph E. Carpenter's papers (3 linear feet; 1922-1945) to the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library, West Branch, Iowa, in 1975. Those materials largely relate to the Colorado River Compact and the North Platte River Compact. The family also donated some of M. J. Hogarty's military papers having to do with Fort Ontario in Oswego, New York, to that organization in 1992. The Carpenter family house and some of their possessions were donated in 1976 to Centennial Village in Greeley, Colorado. In 2015, the family donated one box of materials related to the Union Colony to the Greeley Museum. In the Water Resources Archive, the Papers of Daniel Tyler contains the biographer's files of his work on Carpenter family members in Series 3 and 4.

Series 1: DEC correspondence, 1895-1949 and undated (9.5 linear feet)

This series contains the bulk of Delph E. Carpenter's correspondence. His only correspondence not found here is that with relatives (see Series 4) and that on behalf of the Union Colony (see Series 6). Carpenter corresponded with numerous people and organizations on a variety of topics. Some of the correspondence was filed in an orderly manner, and some was loose throughout the collection, causing the creation of two subseries. The two are each divided into five subject categories, arranged alphabetically: cattle, compacts and rivers, legal, personal, and political. In addition to the letters and telegrams, items sent as attachments are located here, including reports, legislation, drafts, clippings, maps, and the like. All attached photographs were relocated to Series 9; some of the bulkier items such as long reports or folded maps were also relocated. Any attachments relocated are cross-referenced in the files.
Box Folder
Subseries 1.1: Filed correspondence. 1905-1939.
In the early twentieth century, filing of papers was performed utilizing boxes designed with alphabetical dividers. Nearly thirty of Delph Carpenter's box files remained intact and together make up this subseries. The boxes were grouped by subject into five categories: cattle, compacts and rivers, legal, personal, and political. Each category is further arranged chronologically, with the exception of the compacts and rivers category, which is arranged alphabetically and then chronologically. Within a given box file, the correspondence was kept alphabetically by correspondent (person or organization) and often chronological (or reverse) within a letter of the alphabet. Groups of non-correspondence items, such as advertisements or accounting information, that were filed in the boxes were largely kept in place (filed under "A," for example); the exception was publications, which were placed in Series 7.
The cattle correspondence largely relates to buying, selling, and breeding Bates Milking Shorthorns as well as to the financial aspects of the Carpenter Cattle Company. Correspondents found in this category are mostly individuals from Colorado, though also included are ranchers from throughout the West, such as H. T. Groom of Texas, as well as the American Shorthorn Breeders' Association. Carpenter held a dispersal sale in October 1928 but retained a few animals until 1933.
The compacts and rivers category is the largest in this subseries and has significant quantities of files relating to the Colorado River and the Rio Grande among others. In addition to addressing broad issues of the rivers involved and compacts in general, specifics are often addressed, such as meeting times and places and wording of the compacts. Additional topics are legislation, court cases, and power generation. Correspondents include commissioners, governors, U.S. senators and representatives, other federal and state officials, engineers, lawyers, and other people with interest in compact or river issues. In this correspondence, much of the background, politics, and negotiation of compact development can be found.
The legal correspondence is largely copies of only the outgoing letters of both Carpenter and his law partner Herbert M. Baker. The wide scope of their practice is covered, but significantly includes water-related cases as well as the Walter Rising murder case. Filed separately is correspondence concerning the Greeley-Poudre Irrigation District, Carpenter's client which was named as a defendant in the Wyoming vs. Colorado lawsuit.
The personal correspondence covers a variety of subjects, including finances and real estate, politics, religion, Carpenter's children and other family members, his health, and compact issues. Correspondents include many of the same people as in the compacts and rivers category with whom he became friends, but also many others.
The political category contains correspondence related to various aspects of Carpenter's political life. The senate letters are constituent mail to Carpenter while he was a Colorado state senator. They typically ask for his support or opposition to a bill in question; Carpenter's responses are not included. Copies of bills can be found here as well. The remainder of this category is Carpenter's political correspondence, largely after he left office, though some 1912 re-election campaign materials exist. Subjects concern his feelings about his defeat, his support of other candidates, and other topics.

Subseries 1.2: Loose correspondence. 1895-1949 and undated.
This subseries contains Carpenter's correspondence found unfiled in the collection. As many of the same subjects are covered, the same Subseries 1 categories are utilized: cattle, compacts and rivers, legal, personal, and political. The only difference is here the personal category is split in two: "by person" and "by subject." Preference was to organize the personal correspondence by subject, but when a letter concerned several subjects or no subject in particular, it was grouped into "miscellaneous" folders. Frequent correspondents were separated into their own folders. Each category is arranged alphabetically. Loose correspondence that overlapped the filed correspondence on topic and by date was interfiled there.
Included in the cattle correspondence is information on finances as well as reservoir withdrawals. As in the previous subseries, the compacts and rivers category is the largest, with the Colorado being the most written about river. Photocopied Colorado River correspondence is filed after original copies by year. The photocopies do not duplicate the contents of this collection; they were probably created by Donald Carpenter before he donated materials to the Hoover Presidential Library, as evidence indicates they duplicate the Hoover Library materials, though possibly only in part. The "Compacts" folders contain correspondence concerning more than one compact or the topic in general.
The bulk of the legal category is correspondence with Carpenter's client, the Colorado Water Users Association. Personal correspondence concerns a variety of subjects, including honors received, family topics, and past reminiscences. Most of the personal correspondence is letters received by Carpenter, with few copies of his replies existing. The political category contains a variety of topics, but is best represented by correspondence on the Carpenter Reservoir Bill.

Series 2: DEC professional papers, 1880-1950 and undated (10+ linear feet)

This series contains Delph E. Carpenter's working papers, separated into five subseries. Four of these represent a major area of his working life (cattle, compacts and rivers, legal, and political) and the fifth contains oversized materials on the same subjects. The materials were either created by Carpenter in the course of his work or were received by him in relation to his work. While the documentation of his cattle business is modest, few papers exist relating to his political career, though some here are significant. Materials related to compact issues and legal cases are more voluminous.

Subseries 2.1: Cattle. 1904-1933.
This subseries documents the Carpenter Cattle Company, mainly through breeding and pedigree records and registry certificates, along with booklets and papers related to dispersal sales. Also included are the stock brand certificate, the advertisement for the 1933 sale, check slips describing the animals, and a program for the 1920 Colorado Stockgrowers Association conference, at which Carpenter spoke. The items are arranged alphabetically by folder title, with one folder related to swine at the end.

Subseries 2.2: Compacts and rivers. 1889-1950 and undated.
This subseries represents the main focus of Carpenter's career: creating, negotiating, and promoting interstate river compacts. The materials are categorized by river and therein arranged alphabetically. The exception is compact drafts, which are arranged as chronologically as possible; often the drafts are undated and unnumbered, making determinations as to sequence difficult. The river compacts documented at length here are the Colorado, North Platte, Rio Grande, and South Platte; the Arkansas, La Plata, Little Snake, and Upper Colorado compacts are documented to a lesser extent. There is also one file related to the Laramie River. Materials related just to the Platte or to the Platte and its branches (North/South) are filed under South Platte. Carpenter's historical research on the South Platte and Platte in Nebraska in 1918 in part led to the formulation of his compact idea. The statements listed are interviews with people recounting their memories of the river.
Documents related to the general subject of compacts are filed in the Compacts category. This also includes federal legislation related to the compacts. Various documents on irrigation or general water issues are grouped into the Water category. Document types on each river can include the following: drafts, reports, court documents, maps, data, legislation, articles, speeches, minutes, notes, and more. The minutes of the 1922 Colorado River Commission meetings are complete in original or in photocopy except for the 26th meeting. The papers found in files titled "Photocopies" in the Colorado River category were found with the photocopied correspondence (see Series 1, Subseries 2), the originals of which may be in the Hoover Presidential Library's Carpenter collection.

Subseries 2.3: Legal files. 1895-1938 and undated.
This subseries of Carpenter's legal papers is divided into three categories: criminal cases; water cases and clients; and legal materials. The criminal cases category contains documentation related to three cases, those of Charles Simonson (also spelled Simonsen; 1907), Walter Rising (1910), and Mrs. Olive Peters (1913). In each case, Carpenter served as the defense attorney for the accused murderer. The files are arranged alphabetically.
The largest of the categories is the second, water cases and clients. The materials are arranged alphabetically either by the client's name or by the case number/title (simplified version). The bulk of the materials relates to the Greeley-Poudre Irrigation District, which led to Carpenter's involvement in the Wyoming vs. Colorado case. Documentation of that is filed under the case name. The Greeley-Poudre case argued in the Larimer County District Court is numbered 2031, though some of the documents say 3031; one was corrected by hand, giving evidence of a typographical error. Besides court documentation such as proceedings, briefs, reports, testimony, and the like, there are also notes and other miscellaneous items related to the cases. The published Wyoming vs. Colorado briefs can be found in the publications series (7). Other cases in this subseries involve various water-related organizations which were Carpenter's clients, as well as individuals who had water-related legal needs.
The final category, legal materials, is comprised of materials Carpenter had acquired or created for his legal work but were not necessarily related to a particular client or case. Much of it relates to water matters, but some is on more general legal concepts, such as state sovereignty. Some of it may relate to compact issues, as his thinking for that grew out of his law experiences. The files are arranged alphabetically and include mostly Carpenter's notes but also some other court case documents.

Series 3: DEC personal papers, 1886-1951 and undated (3.6+ linear feet)

Delph Carpenter's papers in this series show his personal and creative side. Some materials relate to his professional life in many ways, especially the diaries, but others document his schooling, his finances and real estate, his interest in writing, and other aspects of his personal and family life. The materials are divided into three subseries: diaries, personal papers, and oversize.
Box Folder
Subseries 3.1: Diaries. 1914-1928.
Delph Carpenter's diaries cover fourteen years of his working life, including the years when he was involved in major court cases and compact negotiations. Carpenter mainly chronicled his work activities--legal cases, compacts, cattle, and politics--and would include the location and topics of the day as well as people with whom he met or phoned. It is an excellent record of how Carpenter spent his time. He wrote about his personal activities to a lesser extent and seldom recorded private thoughts or emotions. The diaries from 1914 to 1918 are on small, loose-leaf notebook paper; the rest are pocket-sized bound volumes. As Carpenter's handwriting gradually deteriorated beginning in the early 1920s due to the onset of illness, he would dictate to someone else, most typically his wife. The diaries are arranged chronologically; some are accompanied by online transcriptions. Loose items found in the diaries were separated and moved to their own folders; these include notepaper, business cards, quotations, and a 1923 fishing and hunting license.

Subseries 3.2: Personal papers. 1886-1951 and undated.
This subseries contains the personal items of Delph Carpenter's life, from his grade school report cards (called pupil's monthly reports) to his marriage certificate to the "Salute" given by Ralph Carr at the 1943 National Reclamation Association conference. In between, it contains materials from his time at Greeley High School and the University of Denver as well as his writings, including articles, poems, and short stories. The importance of his family to him is revealed in "Honey Boy" and "In re matter of the union of hearts 'Michaela and Delpho.'" There are professionally related materials as well, such as address books, appointment books, and business cards. Materials are filed alphabetically by folder title, with categories created for financial and real estate documents. These two categories give some, but not complete, information about Carpenter's financial situation and his property holdings. The real estate category largely relates to his Crow Creek Ranch and the related case Nelson vs. Carpenter et al. Note that Crow Creek Reservoir No. 3 is variously called Drury Reservoir No. 2 and Coal Creek Reservoir. Carpenter's tax documents are filed with the family papers (Series 5) as he shared some property with other family members. Also included in this subseries are speeches, programs from speaking engagements, two medical assessments, a phrenological chart, notebooks, certificates, various passes, and memorials written after his death. Loose items found in bound volumes were separated and usually placed in a folder behind the volume.

Series 4: Family correspondence, 1850-1992 and undated (2.1 linear feet)

This series contains the correspondence of multiple generations of the Carpenter and Hogarty families and related branches. Much of what is here are single letters of a scattered nature, but there are significant sets of correspondence, such as that between Leroy Carpenter and Martha Bennett before they were married, Delph Carpenter with father-in-law M. J. Hogarty, and Sarah Carr Hogarty with her mother Ann Tuttle Carr Shafer. The files are arranged alphabetically by person's last name; when a letter could be filed in two places, it was placed with the person closer in proximity of relation to Delph Carpenter. Each folder is either designated as being from, to, or with a correspondent, or is a subject file; the arrangement under each person's name follows that order. M. J. Hogarty's subject correspondence uses labels assigned by him. Sympathy cards and letters received by various family members upon Delph's passing are filed under "Michaela Hogarty Carpenter and family." The correspondence of women who wrote under their maiden name and later their married name is divided accordingly. Printouts of scanned postcards (owned by the Carpenter family) are filed at the end of the series rather than by correspondent. Items within folders are arranged chronologically.

Series 5: Family papers, 1827-1991 and undated (9.8+ linear feet)

This series documents Delph Carpenter's relatives from multiple generations and multiple branches of the family. Most extensively documented are his father Leroy S. Carpenter, his son Donald A. Carpenter, and his father-in-law M. J. Hogarty. The materials are divided into three subseries: diaries, papers, and oversize.
Box Folder
Subseries 5.1: Diaries. 1862-1930.
The diaries here were written by three people: Leroy S. Carpenter, Michael J. Hogarty, and Sarah Carr Hogarty. The most extensive diaries are Leroy's, documenting 65 of his 84 years, though with some significant gaps. The longest gap is the 10-year period during which he moved to the Union Colony, established a home, got married and became a father. In general, his diaries cover daily life of farm activities, weather reports, and church attendance. The five years of M. J. Hogarty's diaries chronicle his time in Greeley and in National City, California, mostly mentioning business and social activities, as well as his travels, most frequently to New York State, Washington, D.C., and around Colorado. Sarah Carr Hogarty's are from three locations: Elmira, New York; Greeley, and National City, mostly describing household, social and church activities. Her first diary, as a schoolgirl in 1862, recounts school and domestic activities. The diaries are arranged alphabetically by person's name and chronologically therein. Loose items in the bound volumes were separated into their own folders; these materials include clippings, notes, yarn, and hair.

Subseries 5.2: Papers. 1827-1991 and undated.
This subseries contains the papers of five generations of the Carpenter family and two of the Hogarty family as well as some additional branches. The materials are arranged alphabetically by person's name and alphabetically by folder title therein. Materials related to both a husband and wife are typically filed under the husband's name. If materials exist from a woman before she was married, those are filed under her maiden name and those from her married life are filed under her married name. Materials related to a family in general come before specific family members' materials; unidentified materials are found at the end of the subseries. The most extensive materials here are those of Donald A. Carpenter and M. J. Hogarty. Among Donald's materials are documents given to him by others, namely Norris Hundley and William Kelly. Both men were doing their own water-related research and gave Donald photocopies or notes. The Kelly materials in particular are a rich source for Colorado irrigation history information. Donald's materials also contain documentation from several court cases and corporations he worked with or had interest in. M. J. Hogarty's materials are mostly financial records (including 18 years of cancelled checks) and military papers (post-Civil War service). Most of the files here are exactly as found, reflecting his own filing system. Material types include biographical and genealogical information, report cards, certificates, financial and real estate records, court documents, writings, obituaries, announcements and invitations, programs, military records, and more.

Series 6: Union Colony, 1870-1983 and undated (2.5+ linear feet)

Several Carpenter family members were involved as officers for the two organizations represented here: the Union Colony of Colorado and the Society of the Pioneers of Union Colony of Colorado. Delph Carpenter served as secretary and treasurer for the former. Martha Bennett Carpenter served as vice-president (various years) and as president (1917-1928) of the latter. Donald Carpenter also served as president of the latter. Thus, records of each entity were held by the family and make up this series, divided into three subseries, one for each entity as well an oversize one.
Box Folder
Subseries 6.1: Union Colony of Colorado. 1870-1970 and undated.
The Union Colony of Colorado was a corporation formed by Nathan Meeker in 1869 in order to establish a utopian agricultural community in the Colorado Territory. The colonists founded the town of Greeley in March 1870. As a state senator, Delph Carpenter sponsored a bill to extend the corporate life of this and similar entities. He was later the secretary and treasurer for the Colony, thus holding a significant portion of its records. Much of the material found here has to do with financial and real estate transactions as well as meetings and membership. There is also some correspondence, including that conducted by Carpenter for the Colony, and some miscellaneous material, not necessarily relating to Colony business but still relating to Colony life or people. Files are arranged alphabetically by title.

It was formed of the original colonists and their descendants and met annually and held an annual banquet and celebration. Most of the materials in this subseries relate to the big celebrations held by the Society for the fortieth and fiftieth anniversaries of the Colony's establishment. The most significant item, however, is the Society's minute book, which is continuous from its establishment in 1895 up through 1930. The book also contains clippings related to pioneers.

Series 8: Clippings, newspapers, and scrapbooks, 1862-1991 and undated (3.65 linear feet)

Multiple generations of the Carpenter family saved newspapers and clippings, thus the 130-year span of this series. Brought together, they are an excellent chronology of the family's activities and interests, especially those of Delph Carpenter, as well as the Greeley community. The series is divided into three subseries according to format.
Box Folder
Subseries 8.1: Clippings. 1862-1991 and undated.
The clippings in this subseries are divided into three subject categories: Compact, river and water issues; Individuals and families; and Other. Even though any given clipping could be on multiple subjects, each clipping was filed in only one location, thus requiring researchers to check multiple folders to ensure complete coverage of topics. The first category--Compact, river, and water issues--contains much press coverage of compact negotiations. The Colorado River Compact is the one best documented here. Lawsuits regarding interstate rivers are found in this category as well. The Individuals and families category contains clippings on members of the Carpenter and Hogarty families as well as friends, Delph's associates, and Greeley community members. The final category, Other, contains mostly articles on Greeley history, including series written by Grace Allen. Other subjects relate to agriculture, politics, and Carpenter's murder cases (Rising and Simonson). Most of the newspapers represented in this subseries are based in Colorado (especially Greeley), but some from outside the state are included as well. Folders are arranged alphabetically within each category; clippings within are arranged chronologically as far as possible. All of the clippings have been photocopied and the originals removed, except for those in Box 144.

Subseries 8.2: Newspapers. 1862-1920.
Some newspapers were printed on high-quality paper, allowing them to be saved intact. This subseries contains those newspapers, the majority being special issues of The Greeley Tribune concerning Greeley history, often illustrated. Some contain articles by or about Delph Carpenter. The items are arranged in chronological order, with the earliest being a Civil War newspaper saved by James Carpenter. The April 20, 1865, Tipton (Iowa) Advertiser contains news of President Lincoln's assassination. The Country Gentleman contains the article "The Water Oracle of Greeley" by E. V. Wilcox.

Series 9: Photographs, 1850-1979 and undated (15.25+ linear feet)

This series visually depicts the family for more than one hundred years. The majority of the photographs here are portraits, though snapshots are present as well. Photographic processes and formats are widely representative of the period covered, including daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, cartes de visite, cabinet cards, stereographs, glass plate negatives, gelatin silver prints, and more. Very few color prints exist. The series is divided into eight subseries, with one for Delph Carpenter, four for families and other people, one for subjects, and two for formats. Women are listed under their maiden and married names as appropriate, so may be found in different subseries. Oversized, framed, and cased photos as well as those in decorative folders are housed separately, but copy photographs or photocopies stand in so researchers can view all the images in one place.

Subseries 9.8: Glass plate negatives. 1895, 1901 and undated.
Though only some of the glass plates in this subseries state the photographer's name, likely most or all of them were taken by F. E. Baker of Greeley. While most are agricultural or outdoor scenes, there are some pictures of interiors and towns, including Greeley. Agriculture documented includes mainly potato and onion crops as well as sheep and cattle. The items are arranged by size (first box has 4x5 inch plates, second and third have 5x7 inch) and roughly grouped by theme therein. A few copy prints made from the negatives are housed separately but are referenced in the inventory.

Series 10: Artifacts, 1847-1945 and undated (11.5+ linear feet)

This series contains the objects existing in the collection. They are mostly from the Carpenter and Hogarty families, along with several items of unknown provenance. Together with the rest of the collection, these artifacts help round out a picture of the family members' activities and interests. Perhaps of most interest are Delph Carpenter's briefcase and the framed "Testimonial of Appreciation" he received from the National Reclamation Association in 1943. The recordings of the presentation of the latter have been added here as well. Other objects include prints, posters, ribbons, pins, buttons, sewing kits, billfolds, hats, boxes, a pennant, a table runner, and more. Arrangement is according to storage needs.
