As the home of the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Papers, Special Collections & Archives has an exhibit of select documents, photographs, and memorabilia dealing with Dr. Garcia's life and contributions. Presently, display cases feature Dr. Garcia's family background and early years; the origins and development of the American G.I. Forum; the Felix Longoria incident; Dr. Garcia in the political area; and highlights of Dr. Garcia's public service. The exhibit offers a wonderful complement for those persons coming to campus to view the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Plaza and statue.
The exhibit is located inside and directly in front of the Special Collections & Archives reading room on the second floor of the Mary and Jeff Bell Library.
