Stockton Immigrant Women


This collection consists of oral history interviews and other primary source materials pertaining to the history of immigrant women in the Stockton area. The collection is built upon the work of Dr. Sally Miller, who was a Professor of History at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. She organized a conference and three seminars concerning Stockton immigrant women in 1980-81. Miller had her students interview sixty-five women of twenty-seven nationalities ranging in age from twenty to ninety years old. Most of the women interviewed had come to the United States between 1920 and 1950.
