Biographical Sketch

A descendent of immigrants, José Garcia De Lara was born in San Antonio, Texas on May 19, 1940. He graduated from San Antonio's Central Catholic High School in 1958. With his family unable to financially support his higher education and the death of his father in 1962, Garcia De Lara self-educated himself over a ten year period by using the resources found at the San Antonio Public Library. When not studying at the library, Garcia De Lara could be found working with several architects, including his mentor O’Neil Ford. In 1972 he passed a four-day test administered by Texas Board of Architectural Examiners to become a registered architect in the state of Texas. Later, he became head of his own architecture firm, De Lara Architects, Inc.

José Garcia De Lara first became a member of LULAC when he joined San Antonio’s Westside Council 602 in 1975. Working himself through the ranks he eventually became president of the council. During his tenure as president, Council 602 organized the 53rd Annual LULAC National Convention held in San Antonio in 1982. In addition he took the Council’s treasury from a few hundred dollars to over $20,000.

In 1983 Garcia De Lara became chairman of District XV’s Special Issues Committee. By 1984 he had become Director of District XV. During his first year as district director Garcia De Lara successfully defended Mario Cantu’s restaurant against eminent domain efforts before the San Antonio Development Agency. Consulting with San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros and other city officials, the district played an influential role in the city’s revision of its affirmative action plan. During this period the South San Antonio School District became the first district in Texas to adopt the concept of single member districts. Garcia De Lara’s group was also in the forefront in the fight against the San Antonio River Authority’s method of electing its board members. Under his leadership District XV greatly expanded its membership.

In November 1985 Garcia De Lara announced his candidacy for state director. Running against Eusevio Morales from Lubbock he won the election at the 57th Annual LULAC State Convention held in Bryan, Texas in May, 1986. He was re-elected to the state office in 1987. Upon entering office he placed a greater emphasize on public issues through a more robust activism. Education was a major issues confronted by Garcia De Lara while state director. Early in 1987 he coordinated the Texas Educational Conference to bring attention to the issue of Latino dropouts. He was also a leader in the struggle against the “English Only” movement in Texas. One of the more controversial suggestions from this period was for LULAC to take over the guardianship of the Alamo. Garcia De Lara was re-elected to a third term as the head of the state organization at the 1988 annual state convention. A few weeks later he would announce his candidacy for the national presidency.

It was soon after the death of his friend and political ally Willie Velasquez that Garcia De Lara made the decision to run for LULAC National President. Announcing his intentions in late June, he became the fourth candidate seeking the national office. Garcia De Lara was elected LULAC National President at the 1988 national convention held in Dallas, Texas. He was re-elected to the presidency in 1989.

When he took over in 1988, the national organization had a debt that had been accruing interest since 1974. Fixing LULAC’s finances became his first priority. In his two years as national president, Garcia De Lara was able to reduce the debt of previous administrations by $565,000. He was also able to obtain title to La Hacienda Apartments in Corpus Christi and get HUD to release $90,000, which was used to pay part of the debt owed to the Alvarado Construction Company. Although still large the debt was more manageable.

Garcia De Lara also initiated a number of changes to LULAC’s functional and organizational structure. With the incorporation of the LULAC National Annual Convention Committee in 1988 he brought the planning, organization, and running of national conventions under the umbrella of the national organization, local councils would no longer play the central role. Some divisions within LULAC were treated by their members as being completely autonomous, not as a subsidiary of the national organization. These groups were to be brought back under national control. The LULAC National Foundation is one such example. Garcia De Lara attempted to restructure the Foundation’s board. Shortly six of the Foundation’s directors filed a lawsuit against LULAC’s national leadership. In reaction, the old Foundation was disbanded and a new LULAC National Foundation was incorporated in 1989. With representatives from the six national regions, a new board of directors was seated. Garcia De Lara lost his bid for a third presidential term at the 1990 LULAC National Convention held in Albuquerque, New Mexico to Nevada’s José Velez.

Scope and Contents Note

Arranged semi-chronologically, and reflecting the organizational structure of LULAC, the documents in this collection detail José Garcia De Lara’s years in LULAC from council member to national president. This collection is divided into seven series. The first four parts, which form the heart of this collection, correspond to the council, district, state, and national levels of LULAC. The last three series are Activities and Organizations, Subjects, Oversized Materials.

Documents from Garcia De Lara’s own Council 602, as well as several other councils, can be found in the first series, LULAC Councils. In addition to items from his time as president, the sub-series Council 602 also includes material from Garcia De Lara’s chairmanship of the Committee for the Advancement of American Citizens. Material on the voting rights lawsuit Hernandez vs. Woodard can be found under Council 502. The question of Sal Quintero is detailed in three folders under the section for Council 2863. By far the largest section in this series is Council 2. In the Council 2 sub-series one not only finds administrative documents for the council, but a large amount of material covering its scholarship committee and the conflict that ensued over who controlled “EL Rey Feo” and the corresponding festivities.

The geographical focus of the next series, Texas Administrative Districts, is exclusively on the state of Texas. This series provides details on eleven of the districts representing different regions of Texas. A particular area of interest is District VIII’s Latino Learning Center controversy, as detailed through correspondence and numerous court documents. Information on the Alton school bus accident and its personal and legal aftermath can be found among the documents from District XIII. In addition to operational documents like the district’s by-laws and executive board meeting minutes, the series District XV has a number of files dealing with issues pursued during the Garcia De Lara directorship. Included among the issues covered are heavy metal concerts, San Antonio River Authority board member elections, and eminent domain efforts against Mario Cantú’s restaurant.

The third series is State Administrations. As expected, the bulk of this series deals with Texas LULAC under the leadership of Garcia De Lara. Administrative and operational documents are similar to the previous series but are greatly expanded in their number. Topics documented include 1987’s Texas Education Conference, San Antonio’s Park South Village Apartments, "rising-junior" tests, and the 1990 census. Correspondence is divided into two parts, a chronological numerical component and a much smaller alphabetical grouping. Lastly, there are the files of directors from other states.

The last, and largest, of the core series is LULAC National Organization. Although the material covers a greater expanse of years, this series is almost exclusively dedicated to the Garcia De Lara LULAC national presidency. It is here that LULAC’s organizational structure and finances come to the forefront. Financial documents are a prominent feature, and are scattered throughout a number of series and sub-series. Among the administrative documents of the national organization are found the records of the National Board of Directors and National Office. LULAC sponsored national organizations, like the National Annual Convention Committee and National Foundation, are also covered. A number of national conventions, stretching from 1982 through the early planning stages for 1992 convention, are included. Issues take on more national characteristics and include areas such as immigration, voting rights, and education. Also found among the national LULAC documents is a small amount of material from other LULAC Presidents, especially Oscar Moran and José Velez.

José Garcia De Lara’s non-LULAC activities and memberships, like the Neighborhood Advisory Committee and the Council for the Advancement of Citizenship, are found in the series Activities and Organizations.

The series titled Other Publications contains issues of Hispanic Link Weekly Report and IDRA Newsletter.

The Texas Association of American Cultures, San Antonio’s Applewhite Reservoir, and the Wild Horses Project are some of the files found under the series Subjects.

Lastly, large format items are located in the series Oversized Materials.
