Historymaker Frank Barrios honored with Al Merito Award

 2023 Arizona Historymaker™ Frank Barrios (1942-2023) continues to be remembered. Historymaker interviewer Zona Lorig writes, “I was at the AHS Annual Meeting Sept 29 to accept the Al Meritorious Award on behalf of Frank Barrios. Norma Jean Coulter is the Historical League member who worked with Frank since he was named a Historymaker. She did two oral histories, gathered all his photos, gave them to the Heritage Center and asked me to accept it in his memory.”

We will also honor him at the Turquoise & Treasures Historymakers Celebration October 14.
