Contributed by Archives of the Catholic Diocese of Tucson
The Images collection consists of photographs of bishops and priests who served Catholics of Arizona from as early as the 1860s. Most of the earliest priests and bishops came from France through the recruitment of Archbishop Salpointe and Archbishop Lamy, of Santa Fe. The collection includes some later priests, those ordained in the 1920s and 1930s, who, like Rev. Msgr. Don Hughes, were active in building and improving the Diocese as Arizona began to grow.
