 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.

 Abstract:  Includes song and music books, sheet music, and books, programs, articles, and brochures on folk dances and music, primarily of Mexico; a folk drama; correspondence; outlines and notes for folk dance and posadas productions; choreography for specific dances; and photographs. These materials, dating chiefly from 1935 through 1959, reflect Collier's interest in Mexican folklore, especially folk dance and the tradition of las posadas, and document her work in reviving las posadasand establishing Mexican cultural awareness at Carrillo School. This collection was a 1977 gift to the Southwest Folklore Archives from Mrs. Betty Sagerstrom. This collection was previously titled SWF 005.
