Rosa Ronquillo Rhodes: The Life of the Redington Ranch Postmistress
Rosa Ronquillo Rhodes (1894-1982) was the postmistress on a ranch in Redington, Arizona (Pima County) from 1922 to 1936. Of Mexican descent, she was the first child in her family to become literate, and held a position that was central to the ranching community in which she lived. This collection of photographs, postcards, and postal documents portray her life as a postmistress, as well as offering a glimpse into ranch life in rural Arizona during that period.
