Saturday, March 5th, Gunnar Thude along with his daughter, Elma Sanudo, were inducted into the Arizona Farming and Ranching Hall of Fame (AZFARE.org). It was a great evening, and it was amazing that so many of the members of the two families were able to attend, even two from Denmark and Gunnar’s hometown. A few pictures from the event.
I was honored to be able to help these two families get nominated and inducted into the Arizona Farming and Ranching Hall of Fame. If you want to read more on this family, please see an earlier blog.
It came to my attention a few years ago that the sheep industry in Arizona was disappearing. I love history, traveling to new places and research. These have been combined in researching this history. I am an independent researcher and speaker and also part of AZ Speaks with the Arizona Humanities. I hold a BA in Anthropology, a MA and Ph.D. in geography. My masters was in land use geography and the Ph.D. was more in historical geography. I love to travel and have visited all seven continents and more than 50 countries. I am a member of the Women Writing the West.
