Abstract

My research centered on the UFW-Texas Records at the Walter P. Reuther Library at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. My aim was to uncover the nature of a dispute that took place between César Estrada Chàvez, head of the United Farm Workers, and Antonio Orendain, his top representative in Texas from 1966-1975. Orendain split with Chàvez in 1975, dividing the farmworkers' movement in Texas for approximately the next decade.
