Death of Ida Mae Stull, nationally recognized as the country’s first woman coal miner - 1980
United Farm Workers of America founder Cesar Chavez dies in San Luis, Ariz., at age 66 - 1993
[Remembering Cesar: The Legacy of Cesar Chavez:
Chavez was a migrant farmworker by birth and by trade. Yet this quiet
and unobtrusive man founded and was president of the United Farm Workers
of America, leading the union during the grape and lettuce boycotts
that drew the attention and support of millions of concerned Americans.
This is a collection of remembrances by those who knew Cesar Chavez
best, a portrait of an uncommonly complex man, both driven and focused,
yet humble, empathetic and exceedingly principled. In the UCS bookstore
