Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Collection is divided into three series: History Courses, Court Cases, and the University Committee on Minority Issues (UCMI). The History Courses series contains teaching materials from Camarillo's courses, most of which focus on race and ethnicity, urban history, and the Mexican American and Chicano experience in the American West. The Court Cases series contains case files from Mexican American civil rights cases in which Camarillo provided assistance. The University Committee on Minority Issues (UCMI) contains working group files and drafts, as well as final reports.
Al Camarillo was appointed to the faculty in the Department of History at Stanford University in 1975 after receiving his Ph.D. from UCLA. He has published and co-edited eight books and over three dozen articles dealing with the experiences of Mexican Americans and other racial and immigrant groups in American cities. He is widely regarded as one of the founders of the field of Mexican American history and Chicano Studies. Over the course of his career, Camarillo has received many awards and fellowships. Fellowships include a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship and a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship; he was also a fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, The Huntington Library, and at the Stanford Humanities Center. His awards for teaching and service at Stanford are numerous. He is the only faculty member in the history of Stanford University to receive the six highest awards for excellence in teaching, service to undergraduate education and Stanford alumni, and university-related public service.
