The first place to go when researching a legislator is Colorado Legislators Past and Present, a database developed by the Colorado Legislative Council. Here you can find a variety of facts about every legislator who's ever served in Colorado. Information in each record includes (if known/applicable):
chambers served in (House, Senate)
district number (for legislators after 1964)
county and city of residence
other government positions held
birth date and place
death date and place
legislative committees served on
Many records contain supplementary information as well. If a legislator was memorialized at the time of their death, the text of the memorial is provided, as scanned from the House and Senate Journals. Other legislators gave oral histories, and these are included in audio form and/or transcript. If a photo of the legislator can be located, it is also included in the record. For those looking for statistical information rather than information on one specific legislator, the data can be sorted by district, party, chamber, or county. The database also includes a search feature, which you can use if, for example, you wanted to find every legislator with occupation "attorney."
