Tucson became a part of the US in 1856 and was incorporated in 1877. The University of Arizona was established in 1885 and became a major foundation for the economy and growth of the city. Arizona became a state in 1912 and the city continued to expand. Veterans also moved to Tucson in the early 1900’s to take advantage of the dry air to help with a plague of respiratory problems after World War I. The population almost doubled between 1950 and 1960 and area code 520 has seen steady growth in the past decades. Now Tucson is the second largest city in Arizona and the 33rd biggest city in the United States.
