Scope and Content

From the Collection: The collection, amassed at the AGIF of New Mexico Albuquerque office, documents the activities and advocacy of the AGIF of the United States and the AGIF of New Mexico from 1948-2009. Charters, constitutions, correspondence, meeting minutes, annual and mid-year conventions/conferences, newsletters, press and publicity comprise the bulk of materials in the collection. National and New Mexico files are generally interfiled.

The collection begins with organizational and background documents for the National and New Mexico organizations. Next, general files are arranged by decade. Subject specific series include Education; SER Jobs for Progress; Kirtland Air Force Base. These series span the decades. The final series contains oversize materials.

Prominent themes throughout the collection parallel the organization’s main objectives. Education (literacy dropout rates, English only, scholarships), civil and human rights (voting rights, equal opportunity, discrimination), employment, legislative action, women, and youth

Records of the Hispanic Education Foundation and SER/Jobs for Progress, founded by AGIF, are contained in the collection. There is a plethora of materials relating to discriminatory practices at Kirtland Air Force Base, prominently, the death of Theresa Maxine Trujillo-Lucero.
