Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Series 2 is comprised of records documenting the 2008 efforts of Latino alumni in their advocacy for the creation of a Latino Studies Program at Princeton. These records, which were maintained and used by Robert L. Hernandez (Princeton Class of 1969), consist of correspondence, meeting notes, and presentation files circulated amongst the alumni involved as well as members of the University administration, including then-president Shirley Tilghman. The advocacy efforts succeeded, resulting in the creation of the Program in Latino Studies in 2009.


No arrangement has been imposed on this series.
