Description: In 1992, research at the Tempe Historical Museum focused on the history of Hispanic families in the Tempe area since 1870, in preparation for an exhibit, "The Barrios," which opened in October, 1992. After the first phase of research, it was evident that documentation on the history of Hispanic people in central Arizona was virtually non-existent. The compilation of research materials in this area has continued through the Tempe Oral History Project. With the cooperation of the Barrios Exhibit Advisory Committee and Los Amigos de Tempe, the Tempe Historical Museum maintains an ongoing project to locate and interview members of Hispanic families from Tempe. In addition, numerous supporting documents have been collected, including genealogies and photographs.
