Phoenix's 1942 Era of Debauchery and Vice

Imagine Phoenix in 1942. It was a time when the city manager, magistrate and police chief were taking payoffs from pimps and Phoenix was considered a wide-open western town full of vice and violence. Find out how attorney Frank Snell brought 75 business leaders together and worked with the mayor and city commissions to create change. Dr. Jack August tells the story at the October 3 Historical League meeting. RSVP

Save the Date for Esteban

A Holiday Concert with legendary Spanish guitarist Esteban is coming to AZ Heritage Center at Papago Park. Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 10, 2016 from 5-9 pm. Esteban look-a-likes impressed us at the September 12 Historical League meeting. A video showing Esteban and his daughter, Teresa Joy and band members performing got us even more excited about the event.  Featuring tapas from The Dancing Chef, drinks (sangria, wine, beer) and wonderful raffle items, the evening looks to be very entertaining.
