(Retired Lt. Colonel in the Texas National Guard; community leader) Recollections of Cleofas Calleros and his defense of the Mexican American. There are also collections of his papers at UTEP and at the Border Heritage Center (EP Public Library downtown) see our Calleros guide in Potential Topics for more info. http://www.epcc.edu/nwlibrary/borderlands/Topics/cleofas_calleros_sources.htm

I think that this is a good place to start on researching Mr. Calleros. Also, I think that we could get Cesar Caballero email and he may have more information. Mr. Caballero is a librarian who was very active in establishing a Chicano Studies Department at UTEP and was very active in Mecha, the Mexican American Student activist organization in the 1970s and 1980s.
