Mexican American Component

While its holdings reflect the spectrum of South Texas culture, Special Collections & Archives places particular emphasis on Mexican-American topics. Its book collections contain materials on the Mexican-American experience and include titles by Alonso S. Perales, J.T. Canales, and other distinguished authors.

In addition to the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Papers, the division includes the papers and books of such civic leaders as Rafael, Sr. and Virginia Galvan, Dr. Clotilde P. Garcia, E.E. Mireles and Jovita Gonzalez Mireles, Tony Bonilla, Ruben Bonilla, Jr., Antonio Rodriguez Fuentes and Josephina Barrera Fuentes, Eddie Cavazos, Rodolfo and Dora Cervera Mirabal, and Oscar G. Flores, as well as records of such groups as the American G.I. Forum, the Spanish American Genealogical Association (SAGA), the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), and the Westside Business Association.

We invite questions and/or comments and look forward to hearing from you. Please contact us at or (361)825-4500.
