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.
