Description
This collection contains materials collected on various toxic hazard campaigns and public advocacy committees, primarily in Arizona, by Michael Gregory of Arizona Toxics Information. Includes a wide variety of materials on subjects such as hazardous waste management facilities and the ENSCO plant in Arizona, the San Pedro Water Supply, air and water pollution on the United States-Mexico Border, NAFTA and fair trade, and the effects of pesticide use throughout the Southwest and Northwest.
Background
Arizona Toxics Information is a not-for-profit organization founded by Michael Gregory in 1990. Gregory worked with the United State Forestry Service in the early 1970s and witnessed aerial spraying of herbicides on the forests, which prompted him to start researching and collecting information about the toxic chemicals Arizona residents and those south of the border were being exposed. Gregory worked with the Sierra Club's Grand Canyon Chapter as well and served as Director of Arizona Toxics Information during the period these records document.
