In this year leading up to Arizona's centennial, Feb. 14, 2012, we'll reprint a story or excerpts each day from the Arizona Daily Star or Tucson Citizen archives.

Nov. 10, 1912

There were 18 births and 28 deaths in Pima County last month, according to reports received for the month by Dr. George D. Troutman, county registrar of vital statistics. The majority of the deaths were caused by accident, heart trouble and tuberculosis. Those, however, who died from the latter cause were in nearly all cases non-residents. Among the number of deaths is also included those of three Indians who died at the reservation.

Dr. Troutman said yesterday that of late there had been many deaths caused by heart failure of recent arrivals from the East, who were unable to withstand the altitude, but who had been advised by their friends to come to Tucson.
