“the pyramid of papago”
Hunt's Tomb is a tomb in the shape of a small white pyramid behind a fence at the top of a hill within Papago Park, Phoenix, Arizona, United States. George W.P. Hunt (Arizona's first governor) had the tomb built in 1931 to entomb his wife. He was placed there after his death in 1934. Their daughter and his wife's family are also buried there. The tomb was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008. Calling himself the "Old Walrus", Hunt was 5 feet 9 inches tall, close to 300 pounds, bald, and had a drooping handlebar moustache. Politically, he took on aspects from the populist, and later progressive, movements who supported reforms such as women's suffrage, secret ballots, income tax, free silver coinage, and compulsory education. Hunt was also an opponent of capital punishment and a supporter of organized labor.
