Anonymous Patron writes Digging in for archives: With the turn of a shovel today, Arizona is finally on the way to protecting the priceless and irreplaceable records of our history.

And what a heritage!

Pictures of Geronimo taken by famous Tombstone photographer C.S. Fly. Files from the precedent-setting Miranda case. The state Constitution. A complete set of mug shots of prisoners held in Yuma during territorial days. The meticulously labeled photo collection of the state’s first governor, a window into the early 1900s with the walrus-like figure of George Hunt in virtually every picture.”
