Woke Up in Arizona: The Mim Walsh Diary
Experience Arizona in the early twentieth century through the words of someone who lived it: meet Mim Walsh, an Irish immigrant who came to Arizona in 1916. Through her diary Mim documents the state's early history, including the Bisbee Deportation, the Spanish Flu epidemic, and Prohibition. Explore 1920s popular culture, immigration, politics, and more. This presentation is offered by the Arizona Historical Society. It would work well with a journal writing activity for adults.
