Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
In early 1980 Mario García began work on a seminal biographical piece of American history, to illuminate the lifehistory of Bert N. Corona, a Mexican American labor leader whose life and work embody the remarkable character of Mexican American communities in the United States from the 1930’s and beyond. The career and experience of this pioneer were documented through a series of interviews, then transcribed into what García calls an autobiographical testimonio. The project eventually culminated in the autobiography Memories of Chicano History The Life and Narrative of Bert Corona. This collection documents that work, it’s process and evolution.
