Mimi Lozano Holtzman is a genealogy enthusiast, educator, and puppeteer. Most of the collection reflects her interest in genealogy
and her role as a co-founder of the Society of Hispanic Historical and Ancestral Research and editor of its journal,
Somos Primos. There is some documentation of her puppetry career and her teaching in Orange County secondary schools. Particularly well-documented
are the language and cultural educational materials she helped developed for Vietnamese refugees. There is also some material
about veterans' groups and on her participation in the civic life of Orange County, California.
Nohemi "Mimi" Lozano was born October 18, 1933. She earned a Master's degree in physical education from UCLA in 1957. In the
1970s she taught puppetry at Golden West College. She also got her secondary education teaching certificate and began teaching
in Orange County high schools, specializing in bilingual education and English as a second language. Her great interest in
genealogy led her to be one of the co-founders of the Society of Hispanic Historical and Ancestral Research in 1987. She served
as the group's president and editor of its journal Somos Primos. She has also been active in a number of Orange County civic organizations.
