Extended Description

FROM THE DUST of the territory's new capital, Phoenix, The Arizona Republican arose in 1890 to ultimately become the state's largest newspaper. Fighting for business, publishers of the area's early papers often dueled for readership with colorful, sometimes combative language and sensationalized stories. In one instance, it went further than words; someone actually shot at Edwin S. Gill, one of the Republican's first editors.

Delivering news about a changing world to its readers, The Arizona Republican focused on local and national politics and ways to make the territory a better place to live. It was instrumental in the campaign for Arizona statehood, which was achieved in 1912.

Reporting on events taking place shortly after the surrender of Apache Chief Geronimo and the fighting of the Mexican Revolution, to America's entry into World War I, the founding of the Grand Canyon National Park, and the roots of today's immigration debates, this historical newspaper provides readers and researchers with a unique view of history from a Southwestern perspective.
