CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – An important milestone in the year-long project to improve access to the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Papers has been achieved with the release of an online exhibit that provides an overview of the life and accomplishments of the Corpus Christi physician and champion of Mexican American civil rights. The exhibit, which went live Thursday, Dec. 1, can be accessed at http://tamuccgarcia.omeka.net/.

In partnership with History Associates Inc., the historical research company selected to assist with processing the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Papers housed in the Special Collections of the Mary and Jeff Bell Library, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is leading the project that will organize and selectively digitize Garcia’s papers. The website will allow historians across the nation, students doing research papers and the general public to see and more easily find documents that are among the most valuable resources on the Mexican American experience during the last half of the 20th century.
