About the Event

The history of the West is not just the story of men.  It is the story of men and women. In this talk Jack tells us the fascinating story of some of the women on the Arizona frontier who would bring civilization to this land. He focuses on three, an Apache woman, a Spanish woman, and a New England woman. They have three different stories but all poignant to the development of Arizona.  Others include Chinese, African American, Jewish, Mormon, and ranch women. Some of these women were governors, judges, a bridesmaid of Eleanor Roosevelt, the Captain of the “Arizona Navy,” the first territorial historian, a famous painter and architect, and the last stagecoach robber. You will go away amazed and with a new appreciation of the role played by women on the Arizona frontier.
