 Title:  Las Posadas Collection, 1943-2007 (bulk 1981-2007) ead 
 Date(s):  1943-2007 
 Abstract:  Las Posadas collection contains material relating to Tucson, Arizona’s Carrillo Elementary School’s long tradition of re-enacting Mary and Joseph’s pilgrimage from Nazareth to Bethlehem in a procession seeking shelter or posada. This event was based on an old Mexican yuletide custom that was first adopted by Miss Marguerite Collier in 1937 to build students’ pride in their Hispanic heritage, and has since then become an annual celebration for all its students and the community.
