Past Presidents

Researching the names of past presidents in historical references to Ouray County, such as the histories compiled by historian Doris Gregory, the names read as a Who’s Who of commerce and service industries – all by their husband’s names of course. Women were not named by their own first name (unless they were a widow or spinster) until the year 2000.
