SERIES DESCRIPTION

 

SERIES I: PERSONAL PAPERS, 1952 -1973

Scope and Content Note

BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION, 1965 -1973
This sub-series consists of four folders, including clippings, short biographical sketches submitted to publishers, and Fr. Salandini's 1973 curriculum vita. CORRESPONDENCE, 1952 -1974
Approximately one-half linear foot, correspondence has been arranged chronologically with incoming letters interfiled with outgoing carbons. This arrangement maintains the coherence of particular issues and involvements that are subject-related rather than relating specifically to Fr. Salandini himself. Commencing in 1952, most of the correspondence through 1958 concerns parish work in the Diocese of San Diego. There is church business correspondence from Charles F. Buddy, the Bishop of San Diego, and letters from individuals whom Fr. Salandini worked with in the Cardijn Center, the Young Christian Workers (YCW) and Young Christian Students (YCS). Little outgoing material is available from this time period. Correspondence from 1958 concerns farm labor problems; parish work in El Centro is represented during 1959-60. Correspondence from 1965 until 1969 is sparse and pertains mainly to dissertation research. Fr. Salandini's work in Canada on the grape boycott is represented during 1969-70 but there is little thereafter. The correspondence files end in 1974. A list of selected correspondents follows this scope note.*
PARISH WORK, 1952 -1967
Covering the period 1952 to 1967 and consisting of one-quarter linear foot of material, these papers relate particularly to the role of Fr. Salandini vis a vis the structure of the Church and its various lay organizations.
SCHOLARLY WORK, 1961 -1969
Fr. Salandini received his Masters degree in Economics having written his thesis on the labor strikes of the early 1960s in California's Imperial Valley. He continued his research in the area of farming and labor in California and received his Ph.D. in labor
*lacking, 8/11/87 economics. These files (one linear foot) consist of research notes, proposals, papers and articles written from 1961 to 1969.
TEACHING MATERIALS, 1971 -1972
Teaching materials contain one linear foot of student papers, lectures and readings from several Chicano Studies courses taught at Fresno State College, 1971-72. There is also one file of material from his student, Dagmar Seeley, at D.Q. University (Davis, California) 1972-73.
 

SERIES II: REFERENCE FILES, 1949 -1972

Scope and Content Note

Fr. Salandini's reference files consist of three linear feet of publications, reports, articles, and newsclippings on many aspects of Mexican farm labor in California. Fr. Salandini's original file names have been retained. Some subjects are specific, others quite general. Topics such as unionization, the bracero program and the termination of Public Law 78 are well-covered, sometimes under several related headings. Other more specific topics include mechanization, migrant housing, and key labor strikes. The bulk of the material is dated from 1961 to 1972.
 

SERIES III: ADDENDA, 1964-1992

Scope and Content Note

An addition to the papers of Victor Salandini, including duplicate copies of two papers by Father Salandini.
