About the Author
Barbara Snobble was born in 1926 to a wealthy, bright, and affluent family living in Highland Park, Illinois. She excelled in school graduating from high school at the young age of sixteen. Ever the socialite, she would sneak out to Chicago’s night clubs thus contributing to her lifelong love of jazz and blues. She attended Vassar Women’s College and majored in liberal arts while contemplating a law degree. Always the looker, she had her choice of men; but, it was a Dartmouth ski team captain who swept off her feet. Next thing she knew she was married in Aspen while on a skiing vacation. With the end of the WWII, she and Jack, her husband, toured Europe, enjoyed meager rations of wine, cheese, and bread, and visited the hidden and bomb-resistant treasures of art throughout the reawakening Europe. Upon returning to the US, she and Jack lived in Washington, DC until Jack’s dream job came along with the establishment of a progressive start-up school in the mountains of Colorado. There both she and Jack taught at the then-new Colorado Rocky Mountain School in Carbondale and later at Colorado Mountain College, Spring Valley Campus in Glenwood Springs. She is identified as one of the "Pioneer Women of the Roaring Fork Valley." Barb served on many boards active in community programs and still supports historical groups and the arts in between a whirl wind of activity and travel. After retiring, Barbara has been able to go through her myriad of photos, slides, and archived presentations. Bazley West Studios / JimConna, Inc. is proud to help her produce her memoirs and welcome many more “Barbara Snobble Remembers...” books and videos.
