The passing of a must read author Michele Serros is sad news indeed. She is the author of CHICANA FALSA and HOW TO BE A CHICANA ROLE MODEL, SCANDALOSA!, HONEY BLONDE CHICA and various postings to serial publications. Here is a link to her obituary.
Thank you to Mr. Willie Williams of Detroit for continuing to refresh and update our materials in the Trinidad Sanchez, Jr. Papers. Mr. Williams has for the past 2-3 years contributed materials he has acquired to add to this collection. As a matter of fact, Trino had an ongoing correspondence over the years with Mr. Williams. We now add all his donations to a file under the Williams, Willie folder!
Work by Leroy Chatfield and farmworkers, The Farmworker Movement Documentation Project has found a home at the University of California San Diego Library.

Oral history interviews, documents, realia (like the political buttons collection we have in Special Collections), photographs and other material are made available.
