Biographical Note

Morris Goldwater, esteemed uncle of Senator Barry M. Goldwater, was born to Michel and Sarah Goldwater in London, England in 1852. At the age of two, along with his mother, older sister Carolyn (b. 1850), and aunt, Morris came to San Francisco, California via the Isthmus of Nicaragua. His childhood was spent with his family in California, where he studied and apprenticed to become a merchant.

In 1867, Morris Goldwater came to Arizona in the footsteps of his father, Big Mike. He aspired to become a merchant like his father and assisted in the operations of the Goldwater stores in La Paz and Ehrenberg. In 1872, the Goldwaters opened their first Phoenix store. As manager of this location, Goldwater donated part of the store to the federal government to act as the first telegraph office in Phoenix and worked as the operator without pay. It was during his stay in Phoenix that he made his first foray into politics. He ran for the territorial legislature as a Democrat but withdrew after recognizing his campaign was hindering the election of the Democratic front runner. Despite the false start, Goldwater remained active in Arizona politics all his life.

In 1876, after the closure of the Phoenix store, Morris Goldwater and his brothers Henry and Baron opened a store in Prescott, Arizona. It was here that Goldwater settled and became active in civic affairs and Masonry. Goldwater was the mayor of Prescott on and off for a total of 20 years. His political career also included roles as councilman of Prescott, member of the 12th Territorial Council of Yavapai County, Chairman of the Territorial Democratic Central Committee, Supervisor of Yavapai County, President of the 20th Territorial Legislature, and Vice President of the Arizona Constitutional Convention.

Goldwater was also very active in the Masonic community in Arizona. He organized the Order of the Eastern Star of Arizona and was elected Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Arizona and Grand High Priest of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of Arizona. In 1903, Goldwater received the Honorary 33° of the Scottish Rite Masons, one of the highest ranks available. For over 50 years, his role as a mason assisted him in business and politics.

In 1906, Goldwater married his long-time landlady Sarah (Sally) Shivers Fisher and was happily married until her death in 1934. They had no children, but Morris devoted much of his time to nurturing his nieces and nephews. He worked closely with nephews Bob and Barry Goldwater as they managed the Goldwater store in Phoenix. Goldwater stayed active in business, banking, politics, and Masonry until his death on April 11, 1939. In 1964, Senator Barry M. Goldwater honored his uncle by nominating him as "Man of the Century" during the Prescott Centennial celebration. Morris Goldwater was awarded the honor and a plaque was placed in his memory.
