In 1948, University of Texas Professor George I. Sanchez was interested in commissioning a set of photographs for his forthcoming "Study of the Spanish-Speaking People of Texas". The study was a socioeconomic work aimed to educated public officials and bureaucrats about the growing Spanish-speaking populace of the Lone Star State. Sanchez was a firm believer in the power of photographs to portray various social milieus, so he contracted with photographer Russell Lee to craft such a collection of images. This site presents over 900 photographs taken by Lee, along with information about Lee and his work. Visitors can read a biography of Lee here, and look at some photo essays organized by city, including Corpus Christi and El Paso. The site also provides a selection of lesson plans for teachers and a finding aid.
