To help commemorate Arizona’s centennial on February 14, 2012, a centennial project was begun to inventory and promote the protection of historic cemeteries throughout the state. Historic cemeteries were chosen as the focus of a centennial project because they are important irreplaceable resources many of which are in danger of being lost through neglect, natural erosion, and vandalism. As the Arizona Centennial approached, it seemed appropriate that an organized statewide effort be undertaken to locate, inventory and provide guidance for the conservation and maintenance of these significant properties.

Eleven captive-born and reared animals were released into the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area. In June 2007, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service contracted with D.J. Case and Associates to assist in planning and implementing public input for a scoping process to identify issues to consider in developing alternatives preparatory to development of a new Environmental Impact Statement for the Mexican gray wolf introduction program.

In addition, findings from a previous extensive study of CMSR use conducted by the South Carolina DOT are reported in detail to compare and contrast its results with the original research in this study. The primary objective here was to investigate whether providing potential traffic fine feedback (in U.S. dollars) to drivers of speeding vehicles in a work zone changes their speeding behavior.

Fort Lowell was a supply base for the United States Army “Apache Campaigns” between 1873 and 1891. Following abandonment of the fort in 1891, settlers moved in and used some fort buildings as residences, or stripped the buildings of useful materials. By the 1930s, much of the fort had fallen into disrepair or had been sold off. Eventually, the City of Tucson acquired a large portion of the old fort which became what is today’s “Fort Lowell Park.” A 5.2 acre (“Adkins”) parcel of the former fort containing several original adobe buildings was still in private ownership, and the 2004 ...

Alameda-Stone Cemetery, commonly called the National cemetery, was used as Tucson's first cemetery from about 1860 to 1875. It was the direct successor of the cemetery inside the Tucson Presidio. The City of Tucson closed the cemetery in 1875 in anticipation of the coming of the railroad and the sale of the cemetery land for residential and commercial uses. In 1881, the city directed that all burials be removed from the National Cemetery and re-interred at the Court Street Cemetery. However, many burials were not removed before the land was subdivided and developed. These volumes document the archaeological investigation of ...
