    Historical Context

    Although Phelps Dodge was the largest mining company in Bisbee, Arizona, it was not the only one. The Calumet and Arizona Mining Company organized in March of 1901 and operated several large and profitable mines adjacent to Phelps Dodge's Copper Queen. By 1907, the C&A was the fourth-most productive copper mine in Arizona, and ran its own smelter in Douglas, Arizona.

     

    Eventually, Phelps Dodge won out however, absorbing the Calumet & Arizona Mining Company in 1931.
