PHOENIX – The History of the Arizona Legislature 1912-1966 collection, the newest addition to the Arizona Memory Project, started as a twenty-volume set of three-ringed binders and microfiche that were digitized through a grant from the Library Services and Technology Act.
Originally compiled by J. Morris Richards, professor, newspaper editor and State Senator, the History of the Arizona State Legislature is a chronological compilation that begins with statehood and continues through the adjournment of the 27th legislature in 1966. The collection summarizes major legislation from 1912 through 1966 and discusses policy issues, politics and news coverage.
It is a great resource for political, governmental and legislative researchers interested in how Arizona government has historically created legislation.
Additional materials related to the Arizona Legislature can be found at the Polly Rosenbaum History and Archives building and on the Arizona Memory Project. The History of the Arizona Legislature 1912-1966 and other State of Arizona Research Library collections will be available indefinitely for viewing on any digital device at http://go.azsos.gov/kn8m.
