Rose Mofford Collection leaving the Mining & Mineral Museum
Former Arizona Gov. Rose Mofford published an op-ed piece in the Arizona Republic this morning announcing plans to move the Rose Mofford Collection of historical and personal items from the Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum (AMMM) to museums in Globe and Miami.
The AMMM closed at the beginning of the month in preparation for its conversion to the Arizona Experience museum in celebration of the 2012 centennial.
The Mofford Collection fills one large room in the AMMM and includes the former governors collections of kachinas, memorabilia, gifts, and awards (among many, many other items).
