Bryan, H. F.
H. F. Bryan - Huerfano World - October 31, 2002 – 1913 La Veta Massacre - Excerpted from article published October 31, 2002. Four men met sudden death on Nov. 8, 1913 outside of La Veta. The incident occurred near the beginning of the 1913-1914 coal strike which lasted over one year. One day a scab in Oakview named William Gamblin needed to see a dentist. The nearest one being in La Veta, Gamblin walked into town and received care. He then phoned to the mine and requested a ride back. Capt. H.F. Bryan, Driver Luke Ferry, W.H. Whitten and R.G. Adams, drove into town and picked up Gamblin. As they began their trip back to the mine, just as they began to drive up the incline just west of town, a fusillade of gunfire rained down upon them. An unknown number of men were secreted behind Lougheed dam on the top of the hill, and they continued firing until the four mine guards were still. All four guards were killed, but Gamblin somehow survived the attack without injury.

The dead - Harry Bryan, 1832 Ogden street, Denver, captain of guards; Walter Whitten, Carlton hotel, Denver, guard; Luke Terry, Colorado Springs, chauffer. The Wounded - R. G. Adams, Arriba, Colo., shot through left arm and right foot; William Gamblin, miner, shot through right lung. The place where the shooting took place is ideal for an ambush. The road winds out of La Veta and runs along and up a hill. At the right of the hill, where the road starts up, is the Loughhead reservoir held in by a dirt embankment. It was from this embankment that the strikers did their firing. The riddled automobile stood Saturday night in the same spot where the stiffening hands of the chauffeur had stopped it. Terry slipped down in his seat still holding the wheel. Fifty yards back Captain Bryan lay face downward with his gun under him. Whitten, twenty yards back of the machine lay on his back. The machine was riddled with bullets. Gamblin is at the Owen ranch. He is not in a dangerous condition. R. G. Adams was taken to the office of Dr. Lamme. General Chase Says Situation Critical - Trinidad - Adjutant General John Chase regards the situation in the strike zones of southern Colorado as most serious following a day of bloodshed and violence. The streets of Trinidad and every section of the strike district are being guarded by militiamen to prevent further outbreaks. One non-union miner shot and killed and one striker wounded at Aguilar; a mine clerk, assaulted, beaten and left for dead by strikers at the McLaughlin mine three miles south of Trinidad; two miners beaten by strikers at Starkville; a camp marshal captured by strikers, disarmed and driven from Segundo; and a skirmish between strikers and military guards at Forbes, is the record of twenty-four hours in the Las Animas county district since General Chase left Denver for his military headquarters here. Five bridges of the Denver & Rio Grande main line between Cucharas and Rouse Junction have been burned. Strikebreaker Is Slain Near Aguilar - Pedro Armijo, 52, a non-union miner from the Ravenwood mine in Huerfano county, was shot and killed on the outskirts of Aguilar by one of a group of six strikers from the Aguilar tent colony who, it is reported, had followed and surrounded him on his way to Lynn station to take a train for Walsenburg. Terror Rules Coal District - With R. G. Adams, the fourth of the men shot in the ambuscade near La Veta Saturday afternoon, dead in the hospital at Pueblo, the feeling of horror in this district over the killing has intensified. That the reign of terror is on again is freely expressed by citizens. The strained feeling that pervaded both La Veta and Aguilar during Saturday and ended in killings was felt at Walsenburg up until a late hour Sunday night. It broke once when strikers caught Neal McDermott, fire-boss from the Maitland mine, before the Star theatre and beat him. Yuma Pioneer – November 21, 1913 – Chas. Richards, Chas. Shepard, Edward Krupa, Peter Rich, Daniel and Edward Richards all reported to have confessed to shooting from ambush R. G. Adams, Harry Bryan, Walter Whitten, Luke Terry and William Gamblin, at La Veta, on the 8th.

Bryan, M. Elaine
M. Elaine Burton Bryan - Pueblo Chieftain - February 05, 2004 - M. Elaine Burton Bryan died at her home in Pueblo, Colo., on Feb. 2, 2004. She was born in Bartley, Neb. All eight grades were spent in a one-room rural school near her farm home. After graduating from Bartley High School as valedictorian, she attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney from which she graduated with honors. Her teaching career consisted of teaching English and business for two years at Palisade, Neb., and four years at Benkelman Nebraska High School. She married a fellow teacher, Jack Bryan, in May 1952. They spent 51 wonderful years together. In 1957, the Bryans moved to Pueblo, Colo., where Elaine first taught English and business at Central High School before becoming a high school counselor. She spent the next 30 years loving every minute at the "Big Blue." Her husband finally convinced her to leave teaching so they could continue to explore the world. Delta Kappa Gamma, the American Association of University Women, Assistance League, and PEO all received the good fortune of having Elaine work to make each organization better. She held state board positions in both Delta Kappa Gamma and AAUW. She served as president of Beta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, AAUW, and her PEO chapter. Elaine also held various offices in these organizations. Traveling the world became a dream come true as she visited all 50 states, and more than 50 foreign countries. Elaine sailed on 27 cruises. Nightly news programs often showed places she had explored. Cancer finally claimed Elaine, who spent the last 11 years fighting the disease. Hospice gave her much support in her final days. She leaves behind her husband, Jack; her brother, Merwyn and his wife, Norma; her sisters-in-law, Donna, Rosalie, Linda, and their husbands, Clarence, Bill and Mike. Her niece, Paula and her nephew, Clark, were especially dear to her and she to them.
