Historical League Arizona Historymakers

Historymakers are men and women who have distinguished themselves with noted achievements in such diverse areas as the arts, athletics, communications, community service, education and entertainment, and who have maintained their ties to Arizona.
Members of the Central Arizona Chapter of the Arizona Historical Society and members of the Historical League nominate living men and women for this honor. The names are submitted to a panel of notable Arizonans, who are of diverse backgrounds, for final selection.
The Historical League has hosted the Historymakers Gala and Recognition Program since 1992 with the purpose of
- Raising funds for education, exhibits, and other programs that assist the Arizona Heritage Center at Papago Park.
- Contributing to the museum’s artifact, oral history and photograph collections.
- Increasing public awareness of the 80,000-square-foot history museum.
- Recognizing and honoring outstanding living Arizonans and celebrating Arizona’s statehood day, February 14, 1912.

These selected honorees were honored at the Historymakers Gala on Saturday, February 23, 2019. The highlight of the evening was a video program telling each Historymaker’s unique life story and accomplishments.
