The Hope Stories Bibliography features titles discovered over the course of research in Las Cruces, New Mexico, initially intended to highlight source titles to be used for a final annotated version. While annotation did not happen, archive materials, both print and digital, exist for review upon request.
In collecting newspaper and journal articles, book titles and archival source material, even webpage screen-shots, it became clear that these research tasks required close, trim-and-cut, reading and writing.
Genuine Thanks and appreciation go to Circulation, Inter-Library Loan, and Archives and Special Collections at the NMSU Library in Las Cruces. Without support from Doña Ana County Historical Society, and the sixteen gracious narrators of the project who allowed me to repeatedly contact them between 2017-2020 about their contributions to the Mesilla Valley Community of Hope, the project would never have been possible nor preserved for future research.
Take note that complete interviews and transcripts are available at NMSU Archives and Special Collections.
