Description
This collection contains audio interviews, transcriptions, and related newspaper clippings of immigrant women in Stockton.
Background
Sally Miller was a Professor of History at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. She organized a conference and three seminars concerning Stockton immigrant women in 1980-81. Miller had her students interview sixty-five women of twenty-seven nationalities ranging in age from twenty to ninety years old. Additional group interviews were conducted at the conference in May 1981. Most of the women interviewed had come to the United States between 1920 and 1950. They worked on farms, in canneries, as dressmakers, as restaurant workers and as teachers. A summary of the Stockton Immigrant Women project was published in The Californians in 1986.
