The Department of Special Collections and University Archives at Stanford University Libraries is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed a CLIR Hidden Collections grant project—Documenting Mexican American and Latino Civil Rights: Records of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) and California Rural Legal Assistance, Inc. (CRLA). This project has been one of the largest and most ambitious processing efforts ever undertaken by Special Collections. In the course of the two-year grant, the project team processed 2045 linear feet of MALDEF records and 406 linear feet of CRLA records. Access to these rich collections will give scholars from a wide range of disciplines a major resource for analyzing the civil rights struggles faced by Mexican Americans in the mid-to-late-20th century and will further establish Stanford’s Department of Special Collections as one of the most significant repositories containing collections that document all aspects of the Mexican American and Latino experience.
