Lois B. Hayna receives the Colorado Authors’ League Lifetime Achievement Award

May 21, 2014

On May 8th, 2014 at the age of 101, Lois B. Hayna received the Colorado Authors’ League Lifetime Achievement Award (see Her papers are in the Library’s Archives and Special Collections and contain extensive writings from her college days to poems written this year. Hayna did not begin writing poetry steadily until she was in her sixties, and spanning the richness of her life’s experiences, she has not stopped yet. Her topics are extensive and cover her trials and joys that change over time because of youth, [Wild Strawberries] age, [The Nonagenarian Gets A Buzz on] death, [The Necessary Rain] because of culture, [No Warning Signal] and because of circumstances [Wild Honey] and attitude [Why I Dance].

A spectrum of America is reflected in Lois Hayna’s writings, both fiction and non-fiction: rural life in the early 1900s; the Depression, feminism, the changes begun the 1960s, and the corporate world of today. Truly she has won a “lifetime Achievement”.

Santo subject collection pages

June 22, 2009

From the Regis University Santo Collection web page there are now links to six subject categories.

All the saints represented by New Mexico santeros from the eighteenth century until the end of the nineteenth century are listed in the following six categories: divine subjects, titles of Mary, angels, male saints, female saints, and other. Each listing gives pertinent biographical and devotional information about the saint or holy person, his or her iconographic properties, and any information about patronage. The lists are illustrated with examples from the Regis University Santo Collection.

We continue to work on photographing more works in the collection to fill some of the subject gaps, and at the same time are working to enter images and records into the Regis University Digital Repository. Stay tuned as we continue to make progress.
