GOVERNOR ALBERT W. McINTIRE of COLORADO

This lot includes three items, all related to Governor McIntire: 1) a silver-plated whiskey flask with English hallmarks on its base; engraved into face, "From Gov. A. W. McIntyre, Happy New Year, 1896"; 2) Biennial Message of Governor Davis H. Waite and Inaurgural Address of Governor Albert W. McIntire; and, 3) original portrait of Frank Webber of Golden, Colorado, recipient of the silver-plated flask from Governor McIntire; photograph by either Mr. or Mrs. Charles Bohm, Denver. Photograph dimensions: 4 inches by 8-1/4 inches.

To-date, this presentation flask appears to be the only extant example of its kind given out by Governor McIntire. The flask design is of a Victorian style, common for the period; however, the fact that a Colorado Governor was handing out such flasks speaks to the prevalence and acceptability of the "liquor-politics" of the time and/or of the close relationship between Albert McIntire and Frank Webber.

 

 

Publication: Biennial Message of Governor Davis H. Waite and Inaurgural Address of Governor Albert W. McIntire.  Original printed covers; 99 pages.  Denver, Colorado: The Smith-Brooks Printing Co., State Printers, 1895.  Near fine condition.

Governor Albert W. McIntire served from 1895 – 1896; graduated from Yale in 1875 with a law degree.  He moved to Denver, Colorado in 1876.  In 1880, McIntire moved to Colorado’s San Luis Valley, acquiring a ranch near La Jara.  Governor McIntire, a Republican, had his inauguration at the Tabor Grand Opera House and reception at the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver.  McIntire was the first Colorado governor to be voted on via universal suffrage.  He strived to bolster women’s government services; restricted gambling establishments; and improved the State Insane Asylum in Pueblo.  McIntire was also in favor of State oversight of banks and the upgrading of Colorado’s road system.

JIMTOWN, three months old, Colorado.  E. F. Hilton, Art., 1891

In 1889-1890, a silver rush began in the Creede Mining District of Colorado.  Its mining camps grew at an incredible rate.  After the discovery of the Last Chance Mine, the number of buildings in the narrow Willow Creek Canon expanded so rapidly further “subdivisions” had to be platted.  Jimtown (actually known as “gin town”) was one of these overflow settlements, established down valley from the original Creede mining camp.  E. F. Hilton, a photographer with an Alamosa studio, recognized opportunity, and in 1892 established the Castle Rock Gallery in Creede.  The original cabinet card image offered here was taken shortly before a fire that destroyed the new mining camp.  Photograph (7-3/4 inches by 4-1/2 inches) No. 8 mounted on original Castle Rock Gallery card.  A small hole punched in card at each corner; light water-staining on back (does not negatively impact photographic image).
