Jeff Broome, class of 75, graduated from the University with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and psychology, and went to Baylor on scholarship in 1976 for his master’s degree in philosophy. After working as detention counselor with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department and program director for the Salvation Army Rehabilitation Center in Denver for a decade, Jeff enrolled in the Ph.D. program at CU, Boulder where he earned another MA in 1995, and his doctoral degree in philosophy in 1998.
During his study, Jeff began teaching philosophy at Arapahoe Community College in Littleton, Colorado, where he remains today. In addition to his many publications on philosophy, Broome has also published several articles on Indian wars history, as well as a 368-page book entitled Dog Soldier Justice: The Ordeal of Susanna Alderdice in the Kansas Indian War, which sold out quickly, and is now in its second printing (and in third printing in 2009, University of Nebraska Press).
A 5th generation Coloradoan, his family roots extend to the Pueblo region as early as 1859. Many Puebloans will remember the prominent camera/card stores known as Broome Brothers.
