Mexican-American Oral History Project
Description In 1975 the Minnesota Historical Society began a two-year Mexican-American History Project under the direction of Ramedo J. Saucedo to collect the historical resources of this ethnic group: personal papers, records of organizations, photographs, articles, and other material, including 74 oral history interviews with people living throughout the state. A description of the full materials available at the Society is contained in "Mexican Americans in Minnesota: An Introduction to Historical Sources", compiled by Ramedo J. Saucedo and published by the Society in 1977. COMMENTS ON INTERVIEWS: Some of the interviews were conducted in Spanish; each Spanish-language interview is noted on its individual description sheet. Each transcript is in English, either as the language used in the interview or as a translation of an interview conducted in Spanish, except for the following interviews, which are transcribed in Spanish: Dagoberto Aguilar, Maria Antonia Alvarado, Concepcion Huerta, Angelita Martinez, Matilda Mejia, Maria Garcia de Palomo, and Federico Saucedo, Sr.
