First woman to hold public office in Arizona. Born as the first white child in Lincoln County, Kansas. Moved with her family in 1882 to Prescott, Arizona, then the territorial capital. She became the Arizona territorial historian in October, 1909 and became the Arizona state historian when Arizona became a state in 1912. Was a Republican electoral college delegate in 1924, supporting Calvin Coolidge. Sharlot's life work was collecting things that told the early history of Arizona. She started the Sharlot Hall museum in Prescott which today contains extensive collections about the early history of Arizona as well as a number of historic buildings, including the original governor's house from when Prescott was the first territorial capital of Arizona in the 1860's. (Museum web site is www.sharlot.org) In 1981, Sharlot Hall was one of the first six women elected to the Arizona Women's Hall of Fame.
