Arizona Sen. Barry M. Goldwater’s granddaughter, Alison Goldwater Ross, has launched the Barry & Peggy Goldwater Foundation to curate, restore and preserve her grandfather’s work through the digitizing of more than 15,000 negatives and 25 miles of film taken by the late senator, a gifted photographer.
Goldwater Ross has curated the exhibition, titled “Photographs by Barry M. Goldwater: The Arizona Highways Collection” presented by SRP at the Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West. The exhibition features the largest collection of the senator’s photographs of Arizona’s native people and landscapes. It also includes intimate family photos and many personal items.
