Marshall Trimble: State Historian

Often referred to as "the Will Rogers of Arizona", this writer, convention speaker, teacher, and folk singer is one of the state's most popular and colorful personalities. Marshall Trimble grew up in the small town of Ash Fork, Arizona, a small cattle-shipping and railroad community on the Santa Fe mainline, and believes his small-town roots are responsible for the homespun humor of his stories and books. He has taught college level courses on Arizona and Western history for twenty-five years. An avid outdoorsman, Trimble has seen most of Arizona's spectacular country from the back of a horse.

Considered the dean of Arizona historians, Trimble is the author of more than a dozen books, and his stories and cowboy poems have appeared in such magazines as Arizona Highways, Western Horseman, and The American Cowboy. The project documents his career with biographical text and a copy of his most recent book, Arizona 2000: a Yearbook for the Millennium.
