Compiled to increase communication and interaction among the Spanish surnamed people of the United States, this directory lists 1,887 officials who held a publicly elected position at the Federal, State, or local level during 1973. Names and addresses of officials are listed alphabetically by State, county, and city. Political affiliation and year in which the official leaves office are given by each name. Spanish surname was used to include Chicanos, Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Latin Americans, Spanish Americans, and Cuban Americans. Names were obtained through personal letters sent to persons identified as Spanish surname in the State, county, and elected officials roster from each state. A follow-up letter, questionnaire, and a preliminary draft of the roster were sent to each person identified. Letters were also sent to organizations and non-elected officials for cross-referencing and expansion of the list. (NQ)
