First Fridays: Tracking the Life of Enrique Garfias

October 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Event Navigation

Enrique “Henry” Garfias was elected the first city marshal of Phoenix in 1881 and served five consecutive terms. Garfias’s life and career in law enforcement was marked by trials and tragedy and, ultimately, by the modest triumph of competence, courage, and perseverance over bigotry and bias.


Join author Jeffrey Richardson in discussing his book, Dogged Pursuit: Tracking the Life of Enrique Garfias, the First City Marshal of Phoenix, which provides an understanding of the important role of the Hispanic community in our shared American history.


Program included with admission to the museum. Discounted admission begins every Friday from  4-8 p.m. Free validated parking available in the Main Gate garage.
