Student Tours

24 Jun

One of our favorite things to do is have high school students come into the archives and try out archival research! These students investigated topics on mining in Arizona and found some great material on the Bisbee Deportation, mining ghost towns, and the Greenways. We were thrilled to have them visit!

Map Musings: Unveiling the Lenon Collection

13 Dec

In early December the Library and Archives welcomed what may be the single largest archival collection to be acquired in at least 50 years – and perhaps in the history of the archives! We are excited to announce the newest collection at the Arizona Historical Society: The Robert Lenon Map Collection! This collection will be an amazing resource for people interested in mining and minerals, geography, family and property history, and Arizona history as a whole. We will post periodically about this new addition, including our adventures in transporting a 600-cubic-foot map collection from Patagonia to the Arizona Historical Society in Tucson, so keep an eye out here for more information!
