U.S.-Mexico Border Labor History

A two-year study funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities added 95 interviews with workers on both sides of the Rio Grande, from El Paso-Ciudad Juárez to Brownsville-Matamoros. Interviews chronicle fifty years of employment history along the border. This nationally recognized collection has been utilized extensively by scholars since its completion in 1980.

Images are meant to illustrate content of this collection. They are not photographs of interviewees.
