    Arizona Historical Foundation Biography Files

    The AHF biography files contain material relating to over 1750 individuals who influenced Arizona, dating from Territorial times to the present. The individuals span race, age gender and class. New files and additional material are added on a regular basis. The files are an excellent resource for genealogists or students needing ready reference. The initial files in the collection were intended to capture information about early settlers of Arizona. AHF developed a four-page Pioneer Biography form which contains sections on parents, siblings, spouses, children, education, work history, religious affiliation, and military service. In addition the form asks for descriptions of when and how the individual arrived in Arizona, and memorable experiences while living in Arizona. The forms were filled out by the individual, usually with assistance from a family member or student. Over a third of the files contain the forms, and are marked in the list below. The files vary widely, from one article in a folder to multiple folders for an individual. The files contain newspaper clippings, obituaries, student research papers, resumes and journal articles. Files may also contain original material such as correspondence, certificates, receipts, court documents and photographs. Below is a browsable list of the files. The biography files also are catalogued in the Arizona Historical Foundation Index, available through the Arizona State University Libraries website: CONTAINER LIST:
