For political junkies and arm-chair media critics, nothing can be better than Mr. Brown's commentary on the 2008 Presidential Campaigns.

The Goldwater Lecture Series

The Arizona Historical Foundation Board has sponsored a lecture series for nearly 40 years as part of our mission to disseminate Arizona history.  In the past, AHF has partnered with other community organizations such as the Heard Museum and the Junior League of Phoenix.  In 1994, the term “Goldwater Lecture Series” was first used.  Since then, the AHF lectures have evolved into a rich offering of topics with nationally-recognized speakers. 

This year, AHF is focusing on one major event, free and open to the public, on the ASU downtown campus. Our new academic partner is the ASU Cronkite School of Journalism.  The featured speaker is Aaron Brown who will be making his public debut as the Walter Cronkite Professor of Journalism.  His talk will follow a reception at the Virginia Piper Auditorium, at the new College of Medicine. 

In the coming years, we anticipate more changes in the Goldwater Lecture Series as we strengthen our partnership with ASU.  We view these lectures not only as outreach to the campus and Valley communities but also as a public service. Our goal is to continue these offerings in the spirit in which they were first conceived – as a venue for celebrating Arizona’s history.
