About Archive Tucson

Archive Tucson is a project of the University of Arizona Libraries and Special Collections to preserve the stories of our neighbors in Tucson and Southern Arizona. Most of our interviews focus on the second half of the twentieth century.

We believe that a knowledge of local history matters: it confers a sense of place, community, and uniqueness. Our goal is to record interviews with a diverse cross-section of Southern Arizonans and ensure that their stories are shared today and preserved for tomorrow. Many of our interviews are online right now, and we’re adding more every month.
