The Role of Social Factors in the Successful Adjustment of Mexican-American Families to Forced Housing Relocation: A Final Report of the Chamizal Relocation Research Project, El Paso, Texas.
Stoddard, Ellwyn R.
Since 1,155 families living in the Chamizal area of El Paso were forced to relocate after the 1963 signing of the Chamizal Treaty, this report represents a 5-year post-relocation study of 80 of the Mexican American families. The report provides a description of the Chamizal residents, their attitudes and reactions to the relocation process, and major determinants of successful readjustment to mass housing dislocation. A background description of the Chamizal Treaty provisions and of the machinery created to implement them is also included, as well as recommendations for further housing relocation programs. Empirical data are contained in the 40 pages of appendices. (JB)
