New Exhibits: Arizona Historical Society Celebrates 150 Years!

8 Sep

The Arizona Historical Society is celebrating its sesquicentennial this year, and there are some great pieces commemorating those one hundred and fifty years of collecting and preserving Arizona’s past on display at the Arizona History Museum in Tucson. The Arizona 150 exhibit showcases some of the staff member’s favorite 150 items ever collected by AHS and includes works of art, clothing, photographs, and objects from Arizona’s rich history.

This brand certificate from the Burruel family papers (MS 1143) is featured in the AHS 150 exhibit and celebrates Arizona's ranching roots. If you'd like a copy of this image, please contact ahsref@azhs.gov for permissions.

The Library and Archives in Tucson has recently opened a new exhibit in the reading room with highlights from the Society’s 150-year history, including photographs of the first AHS buildings, founding members, and ephemera from a century and a half of celebrating Arizona’s history through events, exhibits, the Arizona History Convention, and many other unique traditions. Please come down and celebrate the Arizona Historical Society’s 150th birthday by checking out these great exhibits!

The Arizona Historical Society Library and Archives would like to alert our users that we will be closing early this Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 2:00pm. We are excited to welcome the University of Arizona’s School of Information Resources and Library Science (SIRLS) summer class on Preservation to tour the Library and Archives and talk about issues in preservation with representatives from AHS, the Arizona State Archives and the SIRLS instructor and Preservation Librarian at the University of Utah’s Marriott Library.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. In the meantime, please enjoy this lovely photo of a deer.
