Father of Colorado’s Irragation Code

Ledru R. Rhodes, born in Ohio in 1849, was educated in the public schools and taught when he was 16 years old. In 1865 he went to Iowa where he studied law and was admitted to the bar. He commenced practise in the district court of Fremont Co., NE. In 1872 he came to Colorado, settling in Larimer co. on a farm, but in 1874 opened a law office in Fort Collins where he remained 4 years, and was elected to the state senate from Larimer co. on the republican ticket, and interested himself in the passage of the irrigation law. In 1885 he was elected district attorney of the 2d judicial district, consisting of Arapahoe, Larimer, and Weld counties. He was employed by the Cattle Growers' association on a salary of $2,500, and by the English Irrigation co. He was one of the original members of the Denver Chamber of Commerce.
