Quick Overview

Sharlot Hall fourth from left front row in group photo at 16th annual Conference of the Agricultural Extension Service in Tucson, AZ. Edwin S. Turville is man with glasses above lady at right end of front row.
In 1882, Sharlot Mabridth Hall (b. 1870, d. 1943) moved from Lincoln County, Kansas to Lynx Creek, Arizona, 12 miles southeast of Prescott, with her father, James Knox Hall, her mother, Adeline Susannah Hall, and her brother, Edward V. Hall (Ted). She became a poet, penning a book of poetry, Cactus and Pine, and a journalist, also serving a stint as editor of Out West Magazine. In 1909, she became the first woman to hold public office in Arizona when she was appointed Territorial Historian. After leaving office in 1912, she cared for her aging parents at their farm, Orchard Ranch, until their deaths, returning to public life in 1924 when she was selected as elector to carry Arizona's vote to Washington, D. C. In 1927, her long-time dream was realized when the original Territorial Governor's Mansion was leased to her for life, and she became the steward of the museum that now bears her name. During this period she also was a popular speaker before civic and professional groups throughout Arizona. She died on April 9, 1943, and her funeral was a large affair held at the museum, with the Governor giving the principal address.
Edwin S. Turville (b. December 2,1877, d. March 13,1964) was born in Ontario, Canada and moved to Arizona in 1918 with his wife, Louise McEachron. He worked for the Arizona Agricultural Extension Service in Tucson and Casa Grande before moving to Prescott in 1930. He served as Yavapai County Agent until 1941 when he was appointed County Agent-at-large. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Prescott Garden Club and the Yavapai Cattle Growers Association, and in 1848 he was awarded an honorary Master’s degree by the University of Arizona.
