About the Author Omar Valerio-Jimnez joined the University of Iowa History Department in 2006. He is currently completing his first book, "Rio Grande Crossings: Identity and Nation along the Mexico-Texas Border, 1749-1890" (under contract with Duke University Press), which combines his research interests in the histories of Chicana/os in the American West and borderlands. His published work has appeared in the "Journal of Women's History," "Estudios Mexicanos/Mexican Studies," "Pacific Historical Review," "Aztln: A Journal of Chicano Studies," and "Southwestern Historical Quarterly." He has also contributed chapters on Latinos, the American West, and the Spanish borderlands to various anthology collections including "A Companion to California History," "America on the World Stage," "Latinas in the United States," and "The Atlas of the U.S. and Canadian Environmental History." He has taught courses on the history of immigration, comparative borderlands, ethnic relations, the American West, Latina/os, and Chicana/os at universities in California, Texas, and New York. Valerio-Jimnez received his MA and PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Carmen Whalen received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1994 and is associate professor of history at Williams College, where she teaches courses in Latina/o history. She is author of "From Puerto Rico to Philadelphia: Puerto Rican Workers and Postwar Economies" (2001), and coeditor of "The Puerto Rican Diaspora: Historical Perspectives" (2005). She has recently assembled a photographic history of Puerto Ricans in Philadelphia for the Images of America series. Her current research focuses on Puerto Rican women, New York City's garment industry, and the International Ladies' Garment Workers Union in the post-World War II era.
