Why Arizona? is a multi-year collaboration of archivists from the University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University and Arizona State University to support the forthcoming celebration of the Arizona Centennial in 2012. This digital library provides access to archival materials that tell us stories about how and why people came to Arizona, why they stayed, and why they left - from ancient times to the present. Through the use of archival photos, audio recordings, videos and texts--we will connect with individuals and families who chose Arizona for employment, religious freedom, ethnic communities or recreation.
The project is supported with funds granted by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records Agency under the Library Services and Technology Act, which is administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Why Arizona? The Arizona Migration Digital Library is grateful to the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission for its official designation of Why Arizona? As an Arizona Centennial Legacy Project. You may contact us by email at azcentennial[at]gmail.com
