  • Notes 
    • From ASF, great-granddaughter, in email:

      Joseph D Kopsho and his brother Albert ran a movie theater in Denver, starting sometime around 1906. In 1916 they were doing at least one showing on the road, using a car for power. Albert was the projection engineer. The theater appears to have been called the Electric Theater Co.

      He appears to have been living in Lodge Pole, Nebraska, and visiting his family in Buckingham, CO in 1911. His movements are a little confusing - he's listed as being "of Esmond, Illinois" in 1912. […]

      They had two children, Lucy and Joe. Joe was born in Denver in 1923. By the 1930's they were in Anaheim, CA. Sometime in the 1940s he went to Stanford as a graduate student in electrical engineering. He was certainly there in 1948, helping to run the radio station.
