Heroes and Characters of Territorial Tucson
Tucson is unique in Southwestern history in that it was not a cattle town, nor a mining boom town. Our leading citizens in territorial days included Jewish merchants, a nationally known best selling author, a future New York City mayor, and an untiring champion of poor tubercular patients. On the other hand we had our share of gamblers, dance hall girls, and stage robbers. Here you will find a collection of thumbnail sketches, half-legends, and some stories that might even be true.
Jim Turner ~ Biography
Jim Turner’s whole Connecticut Yankee family moved to Tucson in 1951 to save little Jimmy from asthma. He attended Peter E. Howell Elementary, Alice Vail Junior High, and Rincon High School. Jim took his first course in Arizona history in 1974 and taught Arizona history at Canyon del Oro High School for his student teaching requirement in 1976. He received his masters degree in U.S. history from the U of A in 1999 and was historian for the Arizona Historical Society from 2001-2009. He retired and became an editor/author for Rio Nuevo Publishers in 2009 and published his first book, Arizona: A Celebration of the Grand Canyon State in 2011. He has since written four books for Rio Nuevo Publishers.  
A Thanksgiving Note From President Jen
Fellow Rotarians,
Thanksgiving is this Thursday and though it may look different than it has in year's past, I am still feeling incredibly grateful.  I am thankful for our Rotary Club. We have an amazing group of kind, inspiring and generous individuals that we are fortunate to call friends. This has been a challenging year for many reasons and you have stood strong with our Rotary club and have offered continued support.
Thank you for continuing to put Service Above Self and making us all proud that we are Rotarians and I want to wish you and your family a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
Jen Hoffman
President 2020-21 
Social Mixer ~ A Huge Success!
Our Social Mixer held on Wednesday evening at Proof on the patio was a huge success!  With COVID restrictions, we had 46 who attended.  Lots of fun, food and drink was had by all.  What a great outdoor venue.  A huge shout out to Bruce Jacobs for his work on finding this venue and working out the details for this social mixer.  Thanks Bruce!!!!

Salvation Army Bell Ringing ~ 2019
