Arizona Historical Foundation
The Arizona Historical Foundation occupies a unique niche in the collecting community by virtue of its founders, its holdings, and its relationship with the Hayden Library. AHF is committed to preserving Arizona material of enduring historical value while providing access for Arizonans and the world at large.
Our holdings now include nearly 200 manuscript collections, 60,000 photographs, ephemera, books, artifacts, film, videos, oral histories, political cartoons, microfilm and several distinctive card catalogs. While some material dates back to the 1860s, the bulk of the collections document 20th and 21st century life in Arizona.
