One of the first things Jonathan Rothschild brought into his office after being elected Tucson mayor eight years ago were photographs of his childhood heroes, baseball player Willie Mays and boxer Muhammad Ali.

The two sports legends’ photos were hung in a rarely seen corner of his office on the 10th floor of City Hall. Still, the native-born Tucsonan credits his success to another set of heroes he met decades ago long before he ever considered getting involved in politics — Arizona Congressmen Mo Udall and Stewart Udall.

Rothschild met the Udalls as a child, as they were friends of his father, well-known Tucson lawyer Lowell Rothschild.
