This paper provides historical background and analysis of the crafting of the Arizona Constitution at the Constitutional Convention in 1910, which went into effect on the admission of Arizona to statehood in 1912. Still in effect, as amended, the document reflects many principles of the Progressive Movement, which was at its zenith in 1910.
