Puerto Rican Migration Research Consortium Collection

Identifier: MSS 97


The Puerto Rican Migration Research Consortium, a non-profit incorporated in 1977, sought to bring together scholars to research immigration and emigration. Under the oversight of Brooklyn College professor Anthony M. Stevens-Arroyo, the organization’s primary accomplishment was the publication and distribution of The Puerto Rican struggle : essays on survival in the U.S. This small collection is made up of correspondence, membership forms and financial information for the organization’s scholarship fund. Documents date from 1977 to 1984.

About the Collections

Our collections consist of personal papers from prominent Puerto Rican artists, elected officials, social activists, writers, as well as the records of community-based organizations. Our largest collection, the Offices of the Government of Puerto Rico in the United States (OGPRUS) Records, measures approximately 2,900 cubic feet and contains an extraordinary amount of information regarding Puerto Rican migrants and the government institutions established to assist them. The collections date from the 1890s to the present, and document Puerto Rican communities in the Northeast, Midwest, Florida, California and Hawaii.
