Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
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.
