5. Tucson’s Founding Families moderated by Mary Lee Fitzgerald




Tucson is an original. It was created by enterprising pioneers with no available prototype … created out of nothing in the middle of the Sonoran Desert filled with hostile Indians. Its original presidio was built by the Spanish, later claimed by Mexicans before the Anglos arrived creating a rich tri-cultural legacy. Scores of resourceful entrepreneurs invested themselves and their families in the development of a sustainable economic future in territorial Arizona. Come and meet these amazing families and discover the rich heritage they have left behind.
