FRANCIS JOSEPH VAUGHAN, Secretary to the Speaker in the House
of the First State Legislature, was born in Brooklyn, New York,
January 5, 1858, and is the son of Patrick J. and Frances McDonald
Vaughan. He was educated in the public schools of his native city,
from which he was graduated, and later attended St. Peter's Academy
of the same city. In 1873 he joined the navy, from which he was
honorably discharged after serving his term, and in 1877 he came to
Arizona. He first located at Prescott, but after a short time re-
moved to what is now Cochise County, and lived at Charleston, Ben-
son, Tombstone and on a ranch in Galluro Mountains, working suc-
cessively as school teacher, cattleman, railroader and painter, and on
several occasions he acted as guide for the soldiers during Apache
uprisings. In short, in those times he lived the life of the Arizona
frontiersman. He has always been a Democrat of the progressive
type, and as member of the Cochise convention in August, 1910,
helped write the platform of that county. Mr. Vaughan is the sole

TAMES P. FALM.I. did his first \vork in Gila County in December,
1883, for Doctor James Douglas, at the mines now known as the
Christmas mines, and later at the Old Dominion mine; and he is one
of the group of miners whose pictures were taken about the year 1888.

On Thanksgiving Day, in 1890, he put the
first pick in the ground for the Phelps Dodge
Company at the Hoosier mine, and was fore-
man for that company for several years, leav-
ing their employment in 1896 when the treaty
was made with the San Carlos Indians for the
opening of the San Carlos Strip. Here he
and H. C. Hitchcock were the original
locators of the central portion of the group of
mines now held by the Copper Reef Consol-
idated Mines Company, and are large stock-
holders in the same. Mr. Faull owns
a group of ten claims, these being the east
extension of the Christmas mines, at the

end of the Winkelman railroad, which contain several veins of iron
copper sulphide ore, and also carries good gold values. He also
owns the California group of four patented mines, the name of which
are the California, Arizona, Monitor and Upper Notch, and these
are almost surrounded by the United Globe mines, which are owned
by the Phelps Dodge Company, and are situated between the Grez
shaft, the Kingdon shaft, the Buckeye shaft and the StonewaU mine.
Leasers have worked on this group for many years, and it is said that
the California vein is the strongest vein known in the Globe Mining
District. Outside of the Old Dominion and the United Globe veins
there are several other strong veins in this group. All of these veins
are running directly toward the ore bodies in the United Globe
ground.




ENRIQUE V. ANAYA, Mexican Consul, Tucson, was born in the
City of Los Angeles, November 30, 1880. He is the son of Jesus
and C. G. Cordova Anaya. His father was a pioneer of California
and for some years did freighting between that Slate and points in
Arizona. The family removed to Sonora in 1884, but Mr. Anaya
later returned to Los Angeles, to attend the public schools, and there
he received his English education. He subsequently attended the
State College in Hermosillo, and the Institute Baz., Mexico City,
where he completed his education. From 1903 to 1907 he was
official Spanish interpreter for the District Court and the County of
Pima, and from April, 1907, to June, 1908, he was Assistant Cashier
for Banco de Sonora, at Chihuahua, Mexico. He has also served as
Land Attorney and Deputy United States Marshal for Arizona, and

as Secretary to the Yaqui Peace Commission in Sonora. Being an
American citizen by birth, it was necessary that Mr. Anaya take out
citizenship in Mexico in order to fill the post of Consul, to which he
was appointed in March, 1912. He is a Mason of the 32nd degree,

and member of the Mystic Shrine ; also of the K. of P., W. O. W.,
T. F. B., Eagles, I. O. R. M. and Alianza Hispano-Americana, in

his home at present in Tucson, with his wife, formerly Miss Jesus
Lscobosa, and their two children, Eva Zcairna and L. Henry.

David L. Edwards



DAVID L. EDWARDS, Road Superintendent of Gila County, was
born in Kentucky in 1848. His father, Alfred Edwards, a native of
Kentucky, was a farmer, and David followed in his footsteps, his
first occupation having been as a tiller of the soil. He came to Ari-
zona in 1891 and settled in Globe, where he engaged in mining and
smelting. Gila County has long been noted for the interest mani-
fested by its residents for a better system of highways, and as the
turnpikes of Kentucky w r ere remembered by Mr. Edwards, he was
anxious to see the same grade of roads in his new home county. Too
busily occupied otherwise to enter the political field, the dream of some
day having charge of the roads was, however, not given up by him,
and at the solicitation of his friends he entered the contest for his
present position at the last primary election and won by a handsome
majority with eleven candidates in the field. At the polls this story
was repeated, and Mr. Edwards defeated his opponent, one of the
best known and strongest men in the county. Mr. Edwards was
married in 1875 to Miss Polly Henderson, and to the couple have
been born ten children, all of whom are matured and well known
throughout the county, except George, who is attending the High
School at Globe.

part of the state, and while his efforts in the main have been devoted
to his practice, he has done much to improve sanitary conditions since
his residence in Douglas. He has served as Health Officer, Council-
man and Mayor of the city, and through his efforts a scavenger system
has been established and a set of regulations governing the Health
Department introduced by him and a public sewer installed. These
have formed the nucleus about which has developed a sanitary condi-
tion in the City of Douglas which causes it to be acknowledged
throughout the Southwest as the cleanest, most sanitary and most
beautiful city of the section. In politics, a Democrat, he has served
several years as Chairman of the Central Committee of Cochise
County, and is always actively interested in the party's workings.
Dr. Greene is a member of the Sons of The American Revolution,

Dr. Munson is the son of John Munson and May Charlotte Johnson,
and was horn in Donovan, Illinois, in 1875. His parents were among
the pioneers of that section, which was but a swamp when they took
up their residence there in 1873. By dint of well planned and dili-
gent work, however, these sturdy pioneers succeeded in making of the
swamp what it is today one of the best farming districts of the
country. Here Dr. Munson attended the common schools and later
took a seminary course, which formed the basis for his technical work
in the School of Optometry in Northern Illinois College, from which
he was graduated. This was supplemented by a course in the College
of Opthalmology and Otology in Chicago. Mrs. Munson, w r ho,
prior to her marriage in June, 1905, was Miss Rae Evelyn Callahan,
is a well known member of the Woman's Club of Phoenix, and is
actively engaged in the work of the W. C. T. U. and in church and
charitable work in the city. They have two children, Alberta Anna,
aged seven, and Earnest Raymond, aged five.

that city June 27, 1872, was educated in the public schools and took
her degree from the University of Chicago. During her residence
in Arizona she has been an ardent worker for the cause of woman
suffrage, and was one of the many workers who felt amply repaid for
their sincere efforts when the cause became triumphant at the last
election. Though a professional woman and withal a home maker,
Mrs. Schell finds time to take an active interest in matters of general
importance, and is at present Secretary of the Arizona Humane So-
ciety, with which she has been intimately associated since its re-
organization in 1905. She is also Lady Commander of Ladies of
Maccabees of the World, Pueblo Hive No. 6. With her husband,

ST. MARY'S HOSPITAL AND SANITORIUM is a delightful home in
the "Land of Life-Giving Sunshine." It was the first hospital estab-
lished in Arizona, and for more than a quarter of a century the only
one in Tucson, and was opened for the care and treatment of medical
and surgical cases in May, 1880, by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Caron-
delet. Since then, however, the original building, a two-story stone
one, has been many times remodeled and enlarged to meet the require-
ments of constant advancement in modern surgery and therapeutics.

The hospital is situated among the foothills overlooking the City of
Tucson, and at a considerable height above the surrounding country,
thereby commanding an excellent view of one of the most picturesque
portions of Southern Arizona. All about are the mountains, re-
splendent in their various colorings, and enclosing the broad, level
plains of the Santa Cruz Valley, which are being converted into fields
and gardens productive of almost every variety of sub-tropical vegeta-
tion. Owing to the moderate altitude, the dry, exhilirating moun-
tain air and the glorious sunshine, Southern Arizona is a natural sani-
