This World Wide Web version of looking into the westside: untold stories of the people 1900-1997 was prepared by staff at the University of Arizona Library, October 15, 1997. It is hoped that by making looking into the westside available on the Internet, it will reach countless new audiences in Tucson, throughout the United States and Mexico, as well as around the world.

The project and stories brought forward are inspirational.
