Biographical Note

Lionel Garcia was born in San Diego, Texas, on August the 20th, 1935, deep in the barren brush country. He was raised in an extended family filled with colorful characters which included his parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles and transient relatives-close and distant, who came in and out of his grandmother's house without warning. He was affected deeply by the Hispanic story telling tradition. Most of his work is about the Mexican American experience in deep south Texas brush country, an area so different and unique that is still part United States and Mexico, an area of a mixture of Catholicism and witchcraft in which nothing thrives except plants with thorns and animals with fangs.

During his early years he was sent to live with his grandfather who worked on a remote ranch far in the scrub. There they tended goats and a few cows and struggled to raise whatever little crops the weather would allow. To this day he can hear the cowbells ring at night, hence the title of his fictionalized autobiography, I Can Hear the Cowbells Ring.

He began writing in grammar school. His first published stories were in 1956 in a literary magazine at Texas A&M University, from which he graduated. His award winning stories have dealt mostly with Mexican American life in the United States.

As a child of the Great Depression, his philosophy and attitudes are shaped by the strength, love and loyalty he experienced in the face of extreme poverty and prejudice. He inherited his sense of humor from his strong family who managed to confront and solve problems of monumental proportions with common sense and total acceptance.

In 1983, he was asked to read from his works at a bohemian coffee house in Houston. The response was so positive that he is now in demand nation-wide as a reader and speaker before a wide range of audiences--from literary and corporate groups to kindergartners. He captures audiences with engaging stories laced with generous helpings of humor and wisdom which makes for an immediate connection with his audience.

He is married to Noemi Barrera and has three children, Rose, Carlos and Paul. He has one son-in-law, Robert Filteau and a grandson, David, a daughter-in-law, Judi, and a grand-daughter, Jamie. He is a practicing veterinarian and devotes his night time to writing. Additional information about Dr. Lionel Garcia can be accessed at: http://www.lionelgarcia-novelist.com

Scope and Content Note

Dr. Lionel Garcia, noted author of Mexican-American fiction and a veterinarian by training, published his first literary works while at Texas A&M and continues to write about the Mexican-American experience in deep south Texas brush country. The Lionel Garcia Papers include first editions, hand-written and typed manuscripts, photographs, correspondence, literary reviews, memorabilia, and personal papers that document the life of this native Texan. The collection contains multiple manuscripts for most works, allowing researchers to see the work at different stages and to trace Dr. Garcia’s writing process which entails frequent revisions. Received with no particular organizational structure, the papers were organized into seven series and numerous sub-series as detailed below:

Organization of the Papers

This collection is organized into 7 series:
Series 1. Correspondence, 1959-2004. The first series includes written correspondence through both traditional postal mail and electronic mail (email). Correspondence is conducted between a wide variety of individuals and organizations on topics such as literary accomplishments, manuscript submissions, personal congratulations, and miscellaneous other topics.
Series 2. Written Works, 1956-2004. This series is comprised of the many published and unpublished writings created by Dr. Garcia throughout his career. These works were further broken down into sub series of books, manuscripts, articles, and notes.
  • Sub Series 1. Books, 1983-2004. Books authored by Lionel Garcia and books that feature his short stories are arranged by title in this sub series and labeled with a corresponding item number.
  • Sub Series 2. Manuscripts, ca.1952-2004, n.d. Arranged alphabetically by manuscript title, this sub series contains the many published and unpublished manuscripts of short stories, novels, poetry, and speeches written by Lionel Garcia. Many pieces include hand written revisions and numerous rewrites leading up to the final completed work. The following prominent title changes should be noted, as each manuscript is filed under the working title at its time of creation: Other Years, Other Times, Father Story, and Family Story all evolved into Hardscrub, Remembrances of Childhood became I Can Hear the Cowbells Ring, Tejas is renamed A Shroud in the Family, and A Door at the House of Cards is a play based on The Day They Took My Uncle.
  • Sub Series 3. Articles, 1958-2004. This sub series is the collection of published articles authored by Lionel Garcia, appearing in both newspapers and magazines and are arranged by date of publication. Subjects include short story fragments, social commentary articles, and Mexican American culture.
  • Sub Series 4. Notes, 1983-2003, n.d. Organized by the title of the written work they correspond to, the notes of Lionel Garcia showcase his early hand written drafts as well as the collection of development notes on various written works. Note collections on Father Story (11/17-20) and Leaving Home (11/33-34) contain a variety of materials grouped together by Garcia prior to processing.
Series 3. Personal and Biographical, 1932-2000, n.d. Materials within this series pertain to areas of Lionel Garcia’s personal life and background. Educational achievements, wedding announcements, birth records, military records and related materials can be found in this series, organized by family member’s name or by date if the information was shared by more than one individual or unidentified.
Series 4. Photographs, 1913-2004, n.d. Series four is the photograph collection of Lionel Garcia, his family, and miscellaneous other subjects. Initially sorted by date when applicable, with the remaining photographs arranged by subject matter.
Series 5. Memorabilia, 1956-2005. The memorabilia series is composed of all plaques, awards, certificates, or other personal items with nostalgic value possessed by Dr. Garcia. These pieces are listed by item number and placed in chronological order. The memorabilia items are housed in an oversized box to accommodate the larger pieces.
Series 6. Electronic Media, ca.1980-2005. The electronic data series is a collection of floppy disks, zip disks, CDs, and other forms of digital files that store copies of Garcia’s writings. The material in this series was organized into a variety of disk boxes which were assigned an item number. The descriptive listing of each item’s contents are listed below in the descriptive listing section. A large portion of the data is stored on 5¼-inch floppy disks unique to the 1970s-1980s microcomputers and cannot be accessed in most modern day computers. Dr. Garcia’s manual to one of his word processing computers can be found in folders 16/122-123 and a itemized report of files from Garcia’s harddrive can be located in folder 11/6 to further aide research in this series.
Series 7. Collected Writings, 1964-2005. The final series is a collection of written works in the Lionel Garcia Papers that are not personally authored by Dr. Garcia including literary reviews, biographical articles, promotional materials, and event programs. This series is organized into the following sub series to better separate the writings into material written about Garcia’s work, his life, and material collected by Garcia for research purposes.
  • Sub Series 1. Reviews, 1985-2001, n.d. All literary reviews published on the writings of Lionel Garcia are organized into this sub series by date of the review’s publication, and were sorted by newspaper or magazine name when a date could not be determined.
  • Sub Series 2. About Garcia, 1964-2005, n.d. This sub series is organized by the publication or event date the particular piece corresponds to. Within this sub series you will find articles about Garcia’s life and accomplishments, programs from awards and literary events at which Lionel Garcia is featured, and various promotional materials supporting his writings.
  • Sub Series 3. Research, 1983-2003. Also arranged by date of publication, this sub series is an assortment of articles or programs not specifically about Lionel Garcia or his work. Some pieces collected provide research for his writings and others are collected based on a personal interest in the subject matter or connection to the author.
