Walsh helping memorialize lost Irish buried outside Leadville

"I found myself standing in the midst of all these sunken, unmarked graves. I started checking records and I just knew that this is what I wanted to write about and talk about for my professional career," says Jim Walsh, Associate Professor of Political Science. On October 1, Walsh spoke as part of a commemoration ceremony launching a new memorial project on  Irish immigrants in the Rocky Mountain West at Leadville's Evergreen Cemetery.
