Antonio Regalado Calvo and Maria de la
Luz Mendez Calvo were immigrants from the Mexican state of Sonora. They immigrated to
the San Fernando region of California where they met and married during the Mexican
Revolution. The collection gives a glimpse into the lives of a Mexican-American family
in the Los Angeles area during the mid-20th century.
Antonio Regalado Calvo (1900-1973) was born in Alamos, Sonora, Mexico. Maria de la Luz
Aguilar Mendez (1896-1982) was born in La Colorado, Sonora, Mexico. Both of them,
independently, moved north during the time of the Mexican Revolution. Antonio and Luz
married in 1926 and after living near downtown Los Angeles for a short time, moved to
San Fernando, where Luz had extended family.
