PHF Contributed to AZ Highways
BourneThe Slusser Library was pleased to grant permission to Arizona Highways to publish a photo of Eulalia Bourne, pioneer schoolteacher. The photo shows "Sister" Bourne at the schoolhouse in Baboquivari, which at that time was on the Aros family's Quarter-Circle DV Bar Ranch. Youth Arturo Aros stands next to Sister Bourne in the photo, which was taken in the 1930s. The Slusser has three books written by Sister Bourne: Ranch Schoolteacher, Nine Months is a Year at Baboquivari School, and Women in Levi's. The photo is part of our Rosa Ronquillo Rhodes Collection and appears in the February 2015 issue of Arizona Highways.

Wilt the Stilt  
WiltChamberlain-Forever-Block2-v7-1x800The contract Post Office located inside the main PHF building still has Wilt Chamberlain stamps for sale. These stamps feature a cool vertical design that mirrors the height of the famed basketball player. The first of two designs shows Wilt in his 76ers uniform, and the second illustrates him as a Laker. The verso side of the stamps contains a miniatuer biography of the legendary player, who still holds several NBA records, including being the only player ever to score 100 points in a single NBA game. Come get your Wilt stamps while they last.
