In this 80-page fall issue of Arizona Contractor & Community magazine, we’re focused on four individuals that helped create Arizona’s infrastructure: contractor Paul Brock, masonry specialist Marion J. Evertsen, architects Kemper Goodwin and Melverne Ensign. On the lighter side, we spotlight the many drive-in theaters that kept residents entertained after World War II in the Valley.
Copies are available via the ACC website or at Books on 7th Avenue in Phoenix, or the Ignite Sign Museum in Tucson.
