Tucson Cactus and Succulent Society
The Tucson Cactus Club was the dream of Cactus John Haag, Curator of Plants at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. His position at the Museum provided him with an opportunity to talk with many local visitors. They convinced him in 1960 to advertise in the local newspaper, to invite the public interested in cacti to a meeting at his home on November 13, 1960. So many people attended that there was standing room only for this first organizational meeting.
