AZ Central: Why Barry Goldwater’s granddaughter wants to share his photography with the world

AZ Central: Why Barry Goldwater’s granddaughter wants to share his photography with the world. “By the time he died in 1998 at the age of 89, Barry Goldwater would leave an archive of more than 15,000 images, a handful of cover photos in one of the world’s premier photo magazines and several coffee-table books. His visual legacy also includes a feature film documenting a historic trip down the Green and Colorado rivers in 1940, a time when only 73 others had successfully repeated the journey first undertaken by John Wesley Powell in 1869. Goldwater screened the film dozens of times across the state, which, he would later say, helped build the name recognition he would need to launch a political career.”
