Prof. Jim Walsh
Historian of the Irish in the Western U.S.
Drawing on his research of an abandoned cemetery high in the Rocky Mountains, historian Prof. Jim Walsh tells the tale of the Irish miners who migrated to work hard and die young in Leadville, Colorado, the highest incorporated town in America.
Jim is working to build the Leadville Irish Miners’ Memorial in hopes that their stories might continue and reveal the plight of migrants with few options in life doing their best to survive, themes that resonate still today.
