This collection contains materials collected by the history committee of the Hispanic Association for Cultural Enrichment at Rice (HACER) to document the history of Hispanics at Rice University.

Series I contains written biographical and autobiographical material of Hispanic alumni as well as photographs, newsclippings, memorabilia, rosters, and information on alumni activities in the early 2000s.

Portions of this collection were received from Hispanic students of Rice from the 1940's and 1950's in response to a 2001 written invitation from HACER to write and/or tape record their experiences at Rice, while information from the 1920's and 1930's was largely obtained working with the Niño and Gonzales families.
