24 cm, 273, illus., appendix, chapter notes, index. Foreword by Barry Goldwater. Smith was an Arizonan for more than seven decades, a frequent contributor to Arizona Highways magazine, and a book editor for the University of Arizona Press. Barry Morris Goldwater (January 2, 1909 - May 29, 1998) was an American politician, businessman, and author who was a five-term Senator from Arizona (1953-1965, 1969-1987) and the Republican Party nominee for president of the United States in 1964. Goldwater is the politician most often credited with having sparked the resurgence of the American conservative political movement in the 1960s. He also had a substantial impact on the libertarian movement. Exactly 100 years before Barry Goldwater was first elected to the Senate in 1952, his grandfather, Michel Goldwater, and Michel's brother stepped off a ship in San Francisco. The brothers, Jews who had left Poland to escape persecution, were not penniless, but their resources were meager. Over the century that followed, the Goldwaters established themselves as one of Arizona's prominent families. This book chronicles the family's rise. ``Big Mike'' Goldwater turned to selling dry goods in the mining towns of California and, after a few years, the Arizona Territory. His fortunes rose and fell during the early years, and he achieved secure success only in the 1870s, when his son Morris took over leadership of the family business. Under Morris, another son, Baron (Barry's father), and Baron's sons, the Goldwater stores in Prescott and Phoenix ultimately flourished into great emporiums.
