About

Published from 1915 until the early 1960s, El Tucsonense was one of the most influential and longest-running Spanish-language newspapers in Tucson, Arizona, and cultivated a strong reputation in the Mexican and Mexican American community in Southern Arizona. The paper was founded by Francisco S. Moreno, who had worked as a printer at other Tucson newspapers. Moreno, from Sonora, Mexico, was involved in community organizations, such as serving as president of the mutual aid society, Sociedad Mutualista Porfirio Díaz. When Moreno died in 1929, his wife Rosa Elias de Moreno became owner of El Tucsonense. Over the years, the couple's sons managed the paper with different editors, including Ricardo Fierro, who edited the paper for almost thirty years.
