Arizona Highways magazine was born in the early 1920s. As automobiles emerged as the preferred mode of transportation in the U.S., a handful of states throughout the country developed magazines to entice motorists to travel newly developed roads. Sponsored by the states' departments of transportation, these magazines provide a unique resource for examining how the automobile changed the history of travel and helped to shape identities of place in America. Of these magazines, none date as far back or have featured the iconic photography that has made Arizona Highways a national treasure.
5/15/2020 - the Arizona Highways collection on the Arizona Memory Project is outstanding and appreciated but not complete especially for early issues. Magazines are downloadable as PDFs.
