Tucson has evolved into a harmony of cultures. Indigenous to Spanish and later European and other continents, immigrants have blended together to provide a variety ethnic and fusion populations. With this increase in population many merchants were attracted here to provide goods and services. Among these merchant families were Goldwaters, Steinfelds, and Drachmans, Fruchthendlers and among others. In addition to merchants there were many professionals and restaurateurs and University of Arizona educators. A second wave of population came after WWII with many Jewish and other service people at Davis Monthan Air Force Base. Coupled with the recent profusion of Jews in the area, the Jewish influence is ever preset in Tucson life.
