[About the Great Lives biography series.]

Charles Boettcher was born in Germany in 1852 who came to America to join his older brother in Cheyenne, Wyoming, in 1869. Charles opened a series of hardware stores in the Colorado Territory and became wealthy. He moved from Leadville to Denver where he retired in 1900.

Energetic and entrepreneurial, Charles returned to work and started the Great Western Sugar Company and the Portland Cement Factory. In 1937, Charles created the Boettcher Foundation to fund arts, community groups, and schools.
