Remembering Dr. Arnulfo D. Trejo 1922-2002

By Bob Diaz

I wrote this biographical sketch of Dr. Trejo in May, 2014 for the finding aid for the Arnulfo Trejo Papers, MS 515, which are housed in Special Collections at the University of Arizona Library. Following the bio are a couple of articles about Dr. Trejo, including one where I appear on the cover of the REFORMA National newsletter. I wrote a corrido in honor of Dr. Trejo and performed it at a tribute given to him at the American Library Association Midwinter conference in Philadelphia in January, 2003.
