Biography

Joan Maria Jensen was born on December 9, 1934, in St. Paul, Minnesota, the daughter of an Italian immigrant father and a first-generation German American mother. She moved to California with her family in 1940 and attended Pasadena Community College and UCLA where she earned her M.A. and Ph.D. in history.
Jensen taught at California Western University, later U.S. International University, in San Diego from 1962-1971. She was a visiting professor at Arizona State University at Tempe and UCLA. From 1976 until 1992, Jensen taught history at New Mexico State University where she also directed the Women's Studies program.
Jensen's research interests include the study of feminism, women's history, multiculturalism, individuals from underrepresented communities, and multiethnicity. Her essay entitled "The Gentle Tamers Revisited: New Approaches to the History of Women in the American West," published in PACIFIC HISTORICAL REVIEW, won the Coalition for Western Women's History prize for outstanding scholarship on gender and the experiences of women in the American West.
Jensen became professor emerita from New Mexico State University in 1992.

Scope and Content of Collection

Joan Jensen's research notes on Asian Indians created for her book entitled PASSAGE FROM INDIA: ASIAN INDIAN IMMIGRANTS IN NORTH AMERICA (1988). Materials include handwritten notes, card file bibliographies, photocopied source articles, and microfilms of immigration and naturalization documents and other related research documents. The materials are arranged in three series: 1) NOTES, 2) AUDIO CASSETTE RECORDINGS, and 3) MICROFILM.
SERIES 1: NOTES
The bulk of the NOTES series contains manuscript and typescript notes on half page paper and arranged by chapter. Each group contains a bibliographic citation for the source and notes from numbered pages. The series begins with Jensen's general biblography and her specific bibliography containing sources for her book. Also included are loose-leaf notebook pages of photocopied journal articles and Jensen's notes arranged by chapter and an audio cassette tape of an interview, mostly in Punjabi.
SERIES 2: AUDIO CASSETTE RECORDINGS
The AUDIO CASSETTE RECORDINGS series contains a 60 minute, audio cassette tape interview with Tuly Singh. Most of tape is in Punjabi with little translation.
SERIES 3: MICROFILM
The MICROFILM series contains documents relative to Joan Jensen's research of immigration and relocation of East Indians pre- and post-World War I. The series is arranged in four subseries: A) National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), B) University of Michigan, C) Public Archives of Canada, and D) Dissertations.
A) Included in the microfilm from NARA are records of the German Foreign Ministry captured by the British during World War I and held in the United Kingdom at Whaddon Hall. During the 1950s, the American Historical Association sponsored a microfilming project to film the archive. Also included is a microfilm of the typescript catalogue by the AHA listing documents and the different locations of ministry records, including the University of Michigan. Other record groups represented include U.S. State Department records.
B) The University of Michigan microfilm reels contain German policy records held at that institution.
C) A single reel from the Canadian Governor General's office.
D) The Dissertations subseries contains miscellaneous doctoral dissertations on Asian Indian immigration.
