A bronze statue of five-term senator and Arizona favorite son Barry Goldwater became the newest addition to the US Capitol’s Statuary Hall this week. The eight-foot statue was unveiled at the Arizona State Capitol last year.
The Goldwater statue joins a statue of Father Eusebio Francisco Kino, a Jesuit priest and Southwest missionary, as the other representative from Arizona. Goldwater is replacing a statue of John Campbell Greenway, a businessman and soldier who, at the time selected, represented the ideal Arizona man.
