Sheila Goff and Rae Todd present “Mesa Verde Collections at History Colorado” for our March program.
The “Mesa Verde Collections at History Colorado’ presentation will focus on the two museum collections that were the result of
the Wetherills (including how they arrived, who they are, etc.), as well as what has been learned from them and what there is left to learn.
Sheila will briefly mention the others who have contributed to the Mesa Verde collection, as well.

Shelia Goff has a Master’s of Science degree in Museum & Field Studies from the University of Colorado
Boulder. Her museum focus was collections management and her cognate area is southwest archaeology. Sheila’s thesis
centered on temper studies for Rio Grande glazeware produced in the Pueblo IV period. She has worked at History Colorado since
November 2007 after assuming the position of NAGPRA Liaison. She coordinates the agency’s NAGPRA
compliance. She was given additional responsibilities as Curator of Archaeology in 2014. Sheila curates the archaeology and
American Indian ethnographic collection. She has also worked on the Ancestral Puebloan section of
Living West in the Denver Center, as well as the Ute exhibit at the Ute Indian Museum in Montrose.

Rae Todd is a fifth-generation Coloradan. Her family arrived in southeastern Colorado by wagon
train, homesteading south of Holly and creating the town of Lycan – named after the first appointed
female postmistress and schoolteacher, her second great aunt. Rae holds a bachelor’s degree
in Technical Journalism from Colorado State University, as well as Provisional Surveyor, Scholar, and
Certified Surveyor I certifications. She has participated in archaeological projects, including the Red Butte Battleground near
Casper, Wyoming and Fossil Creek in Fort Collins, Colorado. In addition to laboratory work for UW,
UNC, CSU, and PAAC, she has experience in several excavations in Colorado and Wyoming.
