Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Collection consists of newspapers from Southern California and Baja California, Mexico reporting on border issues in 1911 and 1926-1927.
In the 1920s, there were many disturbances along the United States-Mexico border stemming from prohibition. These incidences were especially common at the San Diego-Tijuana border. The tension was made worse by murders and smuggling issues which led to the border being temporarily closed in 1926.
