Annie Rockfellow was the first licensed female architect in Arizona. She got her license in the 1920s and the woman who followed was Anne Rysdale who got her license in the 1950s. Rockfellow worked in Henry O. Jaastad's office in Tucson and was relatively well-known during her lifetime. However her name has virtually been scrubbed from history and she has been largely forgotten. This podcast episode brings Rockfellow back into the limelight she deserves with a thorough discussion of her life and work with historian Jennifer Levstik.
