Historical Note

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is the oldest active organization of Hispanics in the United States. It was established in 1929 in Corpus Christi, Texas, when three organizations—the Order of the Sons of America, the Knights of America, and the League of Latin American Citizens—joined together to stand up for full social, political, economic, and education rights for Hispanics in the United States.

The first Phoenix council, number 110, was formed in 1940 and the Tempe Council, number 360, first met in 1960 and was officially formed in 1961.

The organization has a complex administrative structure with various levels: National, National regions (like LULAC Far West Region), State, Districts, and local councils. It is a national organization with a National President that breaks down in smaller branches by state, where there is then a State Director. Each state is divided into districts, where there are District Directors, and each district is made up of councils where there are Council Presidents. As LULAC grew, National Region offices were added to the administrative structure; also junior councils, young adult councils, youth councils, and senior citizen councils formed at the national, state, and local levels. These sub-groups came to convene their own conferences.

Provenance

The LULAC Collection is a compilation of three accessions: LULAC Records, Raúl P. and Mary López Papers, and the Jesús and Narcisa Espinoza Papers. The LULAC Records were donated by Julia Zozaya in 1995 (Accession #1995-01533). The Raúl P. and Mary E. López papers were donated by Raquel López in 1997 (Accession #1997-01833); and Narcisa Espinoza made donations to the Jesús and Narcisa Espinoza papers in 2000, 2003 and 2009 (Accession #2000-02266, #2003-02647, and #2009-04346).

Processing Note

The collection's arrangement is aimed to reflect how the organization functioned as a whole. As such, not everything is in its original order. Series I and IV are artificially arranged, whereas Series II and III follow provenance and what the donors believed should be kept together more accurately.

Arrangement and description of this collection was made possible by the generous support of the Council on Library and Information Resources and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
