ASU grads begin to fill stadium for Obama address

TEMPE – The first of more than 9,000 Arizona State University graduates are beginning to file onto the field at Sun Devil Stadium as they prepare to hear a commencement address from President Barack Obama.

A sea of white chairs fills the football field for them, and it is so hot that many aren’t yet wearing their caps and gowns. They’re using fans handed out by volunteers.

The president isn’t expected to make his address to an expected crowd of more than 60,000 until nearly 8 p.m.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
