Riding with the Duke: John Wayne in Arizona

March 13, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

| Free

John Wayne was born in Iowa and lived for most of his adult life in California. Yet, he spent many years exploring, living, and investing in Arizona, where he produced his own films, raised cattle, operated a game ranch, and was seemingly everywhere at once. Wayne remains an iconic presence in American popular culture. In this presentation, McNamee looks at the Duke’s long career in Arizona and the memories he left behind.
