1. 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).
