1. Whittington, William Chase. The Bracero Program in the Arkansas Delta: The Power held by Planter Elite.

Degree: MA, 2017, University of Arkansas

This paper examines the Bracero Program and its implementation from the start of World War II to the end of the program in 1964. Farmers and planters in America needed a sufficient labor supply once the war started, and Mexico became the main supplier. The Bracero Program was initiated as a war effort and meant to only last until the end of the war, but the planter elite had far different intentions once they realized how productive and inexpensive the program could be. This paper identifies the leading causes for how the Bracero Program was able to last over twenty years. Advisors/Committee Members: Jeannie Whayne, Michael Pierce, Patrick Williams.

Subjects/Keywords: Arkansas History; Bracero Program; Lee Wilson & Company; Agricultural Economics; Economic History; United States History
