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.
