Builder and Benefactor
Joyce B. Lohse
Joyce B. Lohse’s seventh Colorado biography covers the larger-than-life story of Spencer Penrose—mining magnate, developer, philanthropist, and so much more.
Spencer Penrose: Builder and Benefactor describes the many projects and accomplishments of Penrose and his wife Julie including the Pikes Peak automobile road, a rodeo arena, polo grounds, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun, and The Broadmoor Hotel. From his wealth came the El Pomar Foundation that for almost eighty years, has benefitted non-profit organizations and individuals in Colorado.
