1. Martinez, Valerie A. The Bracero Program in West Texas, 1951-1964.

Degree: History, 2009, Texas Tech University

The Bracero Program has continually captured the research interests of historians. Academics have evaluated the legislative proceedings and the questionable inner structures of Public Law 78 as well as the programs most exploitative aspects. More recent trends have considered the braceros as historical actors as well as themes of identity formation, and gender and class within the program. Most of these works however are nationally based studies with few providing information on specific regions and states. Therefore this thesis will combine two under-researched areas within the Bracero Program by examining PL 78’s effect in the construction of the identity of several West Texas community members and on the braceros themselves. The goal of the thesis is to demonstrate that the braceros and the community participants co-existed and that the construction of their own identities was in direct relation to their perception of the ‘other.’The first chapter evaluates the complex paternalistic and racist attitudes of regional associations and local farmers towards braceros and the program. The second chapter demonstrates the culturally connected but often hostile perspective of Mexican American people towards the braceros and the program and how class influenced attitudes. The third chapter analyzes the experiences of braceros laboring in the South Plains and Trans Pecos areas both in terms of the attitudes and treatment they experienced and felt, and in terms of their own assessment of the experience. Advisors/Committee Members: Iber, Jorge (Committee Chair), Miller, Catherine (Committee Chair).

2. Zamudio-Gurrola, Susan. Housing farm workers: assessing the significance of the bracero labor camps in Ventura County.

Degree: Master of Historic Preservation, Historic Preservation, 2009, University of Southern California

Five farm worker housing camps established in the period of the Bracero Program were assessed for historic significance. The Bracero Program entailed a series of agreements between U.S. and Mexican governments allowing for the importation of Mexican laborers. Originally conceived to supply labor for the agriculture industry during WWII, after revisions and extensions, the program continued for over two decades, from 1942 to 1964. The Bracero Program played a role in shaping Ventura County’s agriculture industry. It created a managed migration of Mexican nationals, fostered their settlement in numerous communities throughout the county, and negatively affected job availability and wages for domestics, thus contributing to the rise of the farm worker movement in the second half of the twentieth century.; The camps have often been overlooked due to their isolated locations, nondescript appearance, a lack of understanding of their significance, or their association with the history of an underrepresented ‘minority’ population. Advisors/Committee Members: Breisch, Kenneth A. (Committee Chair), Starr, Kevin (Committee Member), Barajas, Frank (Committee Member).

3. Butler, Tracy A. Gender, Labor, and Capitalism in U.S.-Mexican Relations, 1942–2000.

Degree: MA, Latin American Studies (International Studies), 2009, Ohio University

This thesis explores how throughout the twentieth century, the U.S. government worked closely with American businesses and the Mexican government to favor profitability over the social conditions of Mexican workers in the Bracero Program (1942-1964) and the Border Industrialization Program, or BIP (1964-2000). In both programs, Mexico’s Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) tailored each program to American employers’ ideals of the most cost-efficient, most productive, and least resistant workforce for each individual program by exploiting gender. While in the Bracero Program, U.S. farmers favored single, male laborers, in the BIP, U.S. employers preferred single, female workers. The author conducted a series of oral history interviews with former braceros and maquiladora workers in order to draw comparisons between their experiences under U.S. capitalism in the twentieth century. Under each program, male braceros and female maquiladora workers shared similar experiences with low wages, substandard living conditions, and other human rights violations. Advisors/Committee Members: Barr-Melej, Patrick (Committee Chair).
