Arizona Heritage Chairs

This program establishes endowed Arizona Heritage Chairs at Arizona State University to honor the men and women who devoted significant periods of their lives to enterprises that helped shape the state and the communities of the Salt River Valley. Each chair is named after an individual prominent in business, government, journalism, mining, architecture, the fine arts, medicine, law, or farming and ranching. ASU and its community partners obtain the endowments from founding families and companies of the state.

Originally submitted by: Matt Salmon, Representative (1st District).
