The Arizona Historical Foundation held a conference “Goldwater at 100: His Politics, Ideology and Legacy,” November 13, 2009, at University Club of Arizona State University. Barry Goldwater (1909-1998) was a five-term United States senator from Arizona (1953-1965, 1969-1987) and the Republican Party’s nominee for president in the 1964 election. The first panel discussion, titled “Goldwater’s Arizona & Arizona’s Goldwater,” examined how his conservative politics were shaped by his Southwestern roots. Each panelist presented a paper, sometimes accompanied by slides. Then the panelists responded to questions from members of the audience. Conference Chair Jeff Roche moderated.

The papers presented were: Micaela Anne Larkin on “Southwestern Strategy: Mexican Americans and Republican Politics in the Arizona Borderlands;” Andrew Needham on “The Conscience of a Conservationist?: Barry Goldwater and Environmental Change in Postwar Arizona;” Jason LaBau on “Mr. Arizona: The Impact of Barry Goldwater on the Arizona Republican Party;” and Elizabeth Tandy Shermer on “From Boardrooms, to the Senate, to the High Court: Phoenix Republicans in and their Impact on National Politics.” close
