From Sanatoriums to Sun City

SUPPORT

The founding of Sun City, Arizona in 1960 created the ideal of “active retirement living” and popularized age-restricted retirement communities. Its planning innovations have been replicated thousands of times in dozens of countries around the world. Sun City represents a pivotal moment in the transformation of how we define health, aging, and death. Why did the sun-city phenomenon originate in Arizona? Who were the first people to live there? And how did the residents of Sun City get along with neighboring communities? Join historian Paul V. Dutton on Wednesday, March 10 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. for a presentation and Q&A about the underlying forces and events that made Sun City possible and whether its vision of aging is as good for health as its creators promised. Dr. Dutton is Professor of History at Northern Arizona University and Adjunct Professor of Health Sciences at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona.
