Background
The Rhoades Employment Agency operated at three locations (Denver, Salt Lake City, and Los Angeles) from 1907 to about 1932. It was co-owned primarily by two brothers, Joseph V. and Louis M. Rhoades, both of whom were based in Denver. Joseph Alfredo Pacheco, whose name appeared on the Los Angeles letterhead, owned one-sixth share of the company and served as both Manager and Interpreter at the Los Angeles Office at 606 N. Main Street. The agency specialized in the placement of Mexican laborers.
