SERIES DESCRIPTION

 

SERIES I: PERSONAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Scope and Content Note

This brief series contains personal correspondence, resumes, Ruiz's notes on several of the organizations whose records are included in this collection (written when the collection was donated to Stanford University Libraries), and miscellany. Among the biographical items are: Ruiz's applications for employment with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Civil Service Commission during World War II, correspondence with his long-time friend Eduardo Quevedo pertaining to Ruiz's induction into the Mexican American Political Association in 1963, and the program for the installation of Ruiz as a member of the United States Commission on Civil Rights.
 

SERIES II: WRITINGS OF MANUEL RUIZ, JR.

Scope and Content Note

The second series contains drafts of writings, speeches, articles published in the Los Angeles Daily Journal (a legal newspaper), transcripts of radio programs (1942, 1943), and an oral history interview on Mexican land grants in California (1972). One article of particular interest is "Latin-American Juvenile Delinquency in Los Angeles: Bomb or Bubble!" (Crime Prevention Digest, Vol. 1, no. 13, Dec., 1942), which emphasized Ruiz's concerns and solutions for the problems of Hispanic youth in the wake of the Sleepy Lagoon Murder trial.
 

SERIES III: POLITICAL FILES OF MANUEL RUIZ, JR.

Scope and Content Note

Ruiz was a member of the Republican Party and was involved in the presidential campaigns of both Nelson Rockefeller and Barry Goldwater in 1964. Although Goldwater appointed him National Chairman, Hispanic Division, of the Republican National Committee, there is only a single folder on the campaign. He supported Evelle Younger in his campaigns for public office in Los Angeles and California in the 1960s. The political records include correspondence, reports, notes, campaign ephemera and newsclippings.
 

SERIES IV: ORGANIZATIONAL RECORDS

Scope and Content Note

The fourth series, which is by far the largest of the six, consists of records resulting from Ruiz's participation in numerous community organizations. The series is divided into the following sub-series: Cultura Panamericana, Inc., the Coordinating Council for Latin American Youth, other organizations, 1931-1956, Mexican American Political Association, War on Poverty, Inc., and other organizations, 1964-1969.
Cultura Panamericana, Inc. was founded in Los Angeles in 1940, and numbered among its members Latin American consular representatives and United States citizens who were interested in cultural exchange among their respective countries. Included in this sub-series are the articles of incorporation and by-laws, correspondence, financial and membership records, printed programs, and the planning documents for an inter-American cultural center and school for Los Angeles. Ruiz was a founder with Eduardo Quevedo of the Coordinating Council for Latin American Youth. The founding documents, correspondence, financial and membership records, minutes, newsclippings, notes and printed programs demonstrate the breadth of issues which CCLAY strove to address. Under CCLAY's auspices, adult and teen-age representatives from many groups dealt with matters such as defense employment, job training, recreational facilities and housing for minorities, police-community relations, and plans for community organizing in the post-war period. CCLAY functioned from 1941 to 1948, and Ruiz served as its secretary and attorney from 1941 to 1946. Other Organizations, 1931-1956 sub-series includes such youth, civil rights and cultural groups as the California Committee on Youth in Wartime, 1943-1945 (later the California Youth Committee, 1945-1947); Circulo Mexicano, 1940-1943; Citizens' Committee for Latin American Youth (to which Ruiz was appointed by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors), 1942-1944; Los Angeles County Committee for Interracial Progress, 1943-1946; Los Angeles Youth Project, 1942-1947; Mexican Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles, 1943-1953; Southern California Council of Inter-American Affairs, 1943-1945; the President's Committee on Fair Employment Practice, 1941-1946; and the Statewide Committee for a California Fair Employment Practices Commission, 1945-1946. Ruiz's membership in the Mexican American Political Association dates from its incorporation in California in 1963. Records from the state organization include by-laws, the constitution, convention programs, correspondence, records of the MAPA Executive Board, rosters, and records pertaining to the newspaper, The Voice of The Spanish-Speaking People, 1965-1966. There are folders on braceros, meetings with Governor Edmund G. (Pat) Brown, civil rights, the Mexican-American Study Project at the University of California at Los Angeles, and the Delano Grape Strike. Records from the regions and chapters are mostly limited to membership rosters, although there are correspondence, newsletters and programs from the chapters in Los Angeles' 40th and 41st assembly districts. The largest of the Organizational Records sub-series is entitled War On Poverty, Inc. Ruiz helped to found this non-profit organization which was established in 1965 for the purpose of initiating programs to aid low-income persons in urban and rural areas. War on Poverty, Inc. was successful in attracting start-up funding from the United States Department of Labor and the Office of Economic Opportunity, and Ruiz, as secretary of the board of directors and legal counsel, was instrumental in negotiating contracts and keeping projects in compliance with government guidelines. There are records from two of these programs, the Educational Resources Information Service and the Manpower Opportunities Project. ERIS was a small-scale, demonstration project operating in Los Angeles, which assisted young people in participating in post-secondary education and job training programs. MOP, headed by Hector Abeytia, offered southern and central Californians job training and placement services. The records from War on Poverty, Inc. and its projects are primarily contracts, correspondence, financial records, minutes and reports. The final sub-series, Other Organizations, 1964-1969, contains single folders on three groups: the Fair Employment Practices Commission, 1964-1969; Neighborhood Youth Corps, 1966-1967; and Youth Opportunities Foundation, 1964-1966. All reflect interests which Ruiz had maintained since his early days as a community organizer in the 1940s.
 

SERIES V: SUBJECT FILES

Scope and Content Note

The fifth series is divided into the following sub-series: Civil Rights; Miscellaneous Subjects, 1933-1957; Mexican Americans and Education; Police-Community Relations; Administration of Justice; and Miscellaneous Subjects, 1967-1977. The Civil Rights section consists of correspondence, reports, and newsclippings concerning racial discrimination, school segregation and legislation about civil rights matters. There is some material pertaining to the Sleepy Lagoon Murder Case and the Zoot Suit Riots (Box 16, folders 5 and 6). Mexican Americans and Education, 1963-1978, contains correspondence, notes, reports and newsclippings pertaining to the university teaching career of Dr. Manuel H. Guerra. As an outspoken critic of discrimination against Mexican Americans in academic hiring and tenure decisions, he either resigned or was released from the University of Southern California, Arizona State University and California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Ruiz became his confidant and supporter, and their correspondence and notes from 1963 to 1977 provide insight into the problems experienced by a Mexican American professional some thirty years after Ruiz himself was denied access to employment with an established law firm. The remainder of this sub-section is concerned with the United States Commission on Civil Rights work in the areas of bilingual education and school desegregation. The next sub-series, Police-Community Relations, 1967-1978, is notable for the information it provides on the death of Ruben Salazar, a Los Angeles Times reporter who was killed when struck by a police tear gas container while covering the Chicano Moratorium Day riots in East Los Angeles in August, 1970. At that time, Ruiz was a commissioner-designate of the United States Commission on Civil Rights and was instrumental in convincing the Commission to make an inquiry into Salazar's death. The Commission's report, "Police-Community Relations in East Los Angeles" (1970), and minutes of the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations Law Enforcement and Police-Community Relations Committees, 1971-1972, are also located in this sub-series. The treatment of prisoners, especially minorities, was an issue of particular interest to Ruiz. The Administration of Justice sub-series focuses on this topic and on the USCCR's report entitled "Mexican Americans and the Administration of Justice in the Southwest" (1970). There are also newsletters from the Mexican-American Self Help Group at McNeil Island Federal Penitentiary in Washington state (1971-1973), information on the National Prison Project (1973-1974), and Ruiz's correspondence with prison inmates (1969-1971).
 

SERIES VI: PHOTOGRAPHS

Scope and Content Note

There are three group photographs which include Manuel Ruiz, all dating from 1968 to 1977. The photographs of the Los Angeles Public Library, circa 1940, were removed from the Cultura Panamericana, Inc. subseries. Cultura Panamericana considered securing space there for its Latin American library and cultural center.
