  Duncan Arizona which was founded in 1883 with the coming of what is now the union Pacific Railroad, was named after James Duncan Smith, a director of the Arizona Copper Company (now Phelps Dodge) that began mining in Clifton Area in 1882.


  Our organization was formed March of 2001 with 17 charter members.  The fund-raisers we have presented to the community have given PRIDE SOCIETY the opportunity to improve our way of life through improvements in Duncan.  We thank each of you for your support needed to meet our goals.


  PRIDE has been given some awards for making several community improvements, one of which is a proclamation declaring April 17th as Duncan PRIDE SOCIETY Day.  PRIDE awarded Walter Mars, who is news editor for the Copper Era, a certificate of appreciation for the attention and visibility he has given to the Pride Society in the Copper Era Newspaper.
