This blog began with the premise that the Arizona Historical Society is not qualified to be in possession of the state mineral collection. Over time, evidence appeared suggesting that the AHS is currently not even capable of preserving Arizona history. A short quiz to test the AHS’s historical competency follows:
Why did the AHS celebrate its centennial in 1984?
( ) It took the AHS so long to plan for the centennial that it celebrated its centennial 20 years late.
( ) It took 20 years longer than expected to raise the necessary funds.
( ) The AHS was actually founded in 1884, not in 1864 as it currently claims.
( ) No one was paying attention and they missed it.
( ) It took members 20 years to agree on a venue for the celebration.
