A museum that tells an untold story. One that has never been told, not even by the world’s most famous museums. One that touches every person and culture... even life itself. One that is tied to the respective fortunes of both Arizona and Clarkdale; producing over 100 billion pounds of copper. One focused on what happened to all of Arizona’s copper, and its incredible journey that spanned the globe. One that makes perfect sense to this community and the Copper State.

Richard was a 1949 Douglas High School graduate who went on to work for NASA.
