Halloween Part Two!

31 Oct


Every year, the archivists pick a costume that incorporates archives’ signature white gloves. This year we picked Minnie Mouse! We even have a Minnie Mouse connection in the archives – The Fox Theater hosted the Tucson chapter of the Mickey Mouse Club in the 1930s. Check out the adorable photo of some Tucson Mouseketeers at an event at the Fox below.



Fox Theater Photograph Collection – PC 173. Circa 1931-1932. According to the back of the photo, the mouse dolls were won in a drawing at a Mickey Mouse Club event at the Fox Theater.

The Brawny Towel Man and 3 lovely mimes!

The Brawny Towel Man and 3 lovely mimes!

Happy Halloween from the archivists at the Arizona Historical Society in Tucson! If you come to the reference desk today you might catch a glimpse of one of our rare talking mimes (kind of hard to work on the reference desk without talking) or possibly even the Brawny Towel Man and his elusive mustache.
