About this collection

The H. Chase Stone Photograph Collection contains aerial views of Colorado Springs and pictures of patients and medical staff of the Cragmor Sanitorium.  Henry Chase Stone was born May 5, 1900 at Staten Island, New York, and graduated from Phillips-Exeter Academy and Cornell University.  He studied mechanical engineering and served four years as a naval officer during World War I. Stone came to Colorado Springs in 1925 as a tuberculosis patient and spent 10 years at Cragmor Sanitorium.  He eventually recovered his health and began a career with the First National Bank in 1935.  By 1951 he was the bank president.  During his life, Stone’s impact was felt in nearly every phase of Colorado Springs community life.  He was a leader in the revitalized Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce.  He served as the director of the Broadmoor Hotel and as a trustee of the El Pomar Foundation and Colorado College.  Perhaps his most important legacy is the critical role Stone played in bringing Fort Carson and the United States Air Force Academy to Colorado Springs.  H. Chase Stone died October 9, 1966.
