The Erl H. Ellis papers represent his work with the Westerners International from the late 1950s through the early 1980s.
Erl H. Ellis was born on April 10, 1888 in Garden City, Kansas. His family moved to Denver soon after his birth, where his father, Daniel B. Ellis, went into law practice. Erl Ellis's grandfather, Lyman A. Ellis, was also a lawyer. Erl Ellis attended Denver public schools as a young child and adolescent. He received a B.A. from the University of Colorado in 1910 and a law degree in 1912. He practiced law in Denver until his retirement, except for a brief period when he was a naval aviator in World War I. He and his wife Scotty had one son, Robert, who also earned a law degree. He became a banker in Pueblo, Colorado.
