O. J. Goldrick awed and stunned the pioneers in the dusty mining town of Auraria (later Denver) when he arrived driving the lead wagon of an ox-drawn caravan. He was dressed in a tall silk top-hat, a cut-a-way coat, kid gloves with a natty matching cravat, and he was instructing the oxen in Latin. The pioneers dubbed him ''Professor'' and began planning the camp's first school with him as teacher. He was eccentric and blunt but also a very kwledgeable charmer. Soon, he was writing as the first roving reporter for the newly formed Rocky Mountain News. He was Colorado's first schoolteacher, first newspaper reporter, helped to establish the first library, and first Sunday school, and was elected the first superintendent of schools for Arapahoe County. Later, he established his own newspaper, the Rocky Mountain Herald. When he died of pneumonia in 1882, everyone knew him, but knew very little about him. This biography tells his story accurately for the first time.
