The reaction of Charis and Edward to the Goldwater brand of "not our brother's keeper" Western Republicansm was a VERY negative response. Apparently they had to bite their tongues a lot. (Charis, of course, was eventually married to a California Union Organizer.)
My favorite story about Goldwater was when asked about what he and his wife did in retirement, he said, "We just sit on the front porch a lot, looking at the sunset, and hum Hail to the Chiel."
As a photographer, Goldwater was at least as good as most of those professional landscapers who contributed to "Arizona Highways."
