Senator Barry M. Goldwater
Senator Goldwater, an associate in the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain and the Photographic Society of America, wrote:
Using a 4″ x 5″ Graflex and a Rolleiflex camera, my picture‐taking now covers a span of 30 years. During this time I have accumulated over 3,000 negatives of Arizona alone, as well as countless others of different parts of the world.
“They have been taken primarily to record what Arizona looked like during my life. I intend that they be deposited with the Arizona Historical Foundation when I am no longer here to add to the collection.”
