Biographical / Historical

Kaye Briegel, an Emerita Professor of History at the California State University, Long Beach, primarily assembled this collection of Chicano publications.

Publications in this collection include:

  1. El Chicano began in 1968 when the University of California received a grant from the Ford Foundation, and the first issue was published later that year. In 1969 funding for the publication was pulled due to a political cartoon, but was picked up as an independent press by its current owners, Gloria and Bill Harrison, along with Marta Macias Brown and Sam McQueen.
  2. El Malcriado-The Voice of the Farmworker started when Cesar Chavez and Gilbert Padilla wanted to build a movement in 1962. It wasn't until 1964 that the original idea to create the publication became a reality. Bill Esher, a New Yorker who moved to Oakland, helped create and distribute the paper. The publication continued distribution until the early 1970s.
  3. Regeneracion was a monthly magazine previous known as Carta Editorial. Regeneracion was published in Los Angeles until an undisclosed date and focused on issues of inequality, poverty, and war.
  4. El Hispanoa legally adjudicated newspaper of general circulation in Sacramento County and throughout Northern California that was published weekly, every Tuesday.
