Contact Us Fall 1999 Forum Biographies Honorable Marc H. Morial Mayor Marc H. Morial has led a dramatic turnaround of New Orleans and city government since he was first elected in 1994. His tireless energy and enduring commitment to change has continued in his second term, bringing a renewed sense of public confidence, the strongest economy in decades, a modern police force, and revitalized neighborhoods. Ground-breaking programs and unprecedented coalitions have set a new public standard for city government that have made New Orleans the comeback city for the 21st century. Mayor Morial was born in New Orleans, the first son and second of five children of the late Ernest N. "Dutch" Morial and Sybil Haydel Morial. Mayor Morial grew up with a strong background in politics and civil rights as he watched his father rise through the ranks as attorney, legislator, judge and the first African American Mayor of New Orleans. After graduating from Jesuit High School in 1976, Morial studied economics at the University of Pennsylvania and received a law degree from Georgetown University. During college, he worked as a legislative intern to U.S. Senator Russell Long and at Georgetown, he worked as an associate in the United States Attorney's office in New York. He also worked as a legislative assistant to the late Congressman Mickey Leland.

    Born 1962
    Politician, Lobbyist and Civil rights activist National Council of La Raza Controversy Over Welfare Reform On August 22, 1996, President Bill Clinton signed into law the strictest federal welfare reform law in years. It had major implications for legal immigrants who were not citizens. They became ineligible for food stamps and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the latter of which assists aged, blind, and disabled individuals. The cost savings from these cutbacks was estimated to be between 20 and 30 billion dollars over six years. Immigrant advocate groups and charitable organizations, such as the NCLR, Northern California Coalition for Immigrant Rights in San Francisco, and Second Harvest, felt that the law was too harsh and unfair. Immigrants who came to the United States legally yet, who were not citizens, would be cut off from immigrant public assistance programs. This was especially critical to refugees who come to the United States with little money and few possessions, and who typically need several years for an adequate transition to their new surroundings. Advocates claimed it was unfair to change the rules and cut off benefits to those who had come to the United States legally. The Orange County Register.

    Bella Savitzky Abzug born July 24, 1920, the Bronx, New York City died March 31, 1998, New York City US-American politician, Congresswoman "I am a very serious woman." So Bella Savitzky Abzug responded simply and practically to the various characterizations and caricatures made of her. Bella's forthright, forceful manner and flamboyant appearance may often have inspired controversy and criticism in the American political arena, yet this very serious woman spent her lifetime dedicated to public service and activism on behalf of the oppressed and ignored. She gained fame nationally as the first Jewish woman elected to the US Congress and later internationally as a leader in the global women's movement, where she made a lasting impression among younger activists for her "courage and dominating spirit to speak out for women and be heard." (Vanita Nayar Mukhertee in Remembering Bella Bella Savitzky, the daughter of Russian Jewish immigrants, grew up in New York's Bronx, where her father owned the Live and Let Live Meat Market. At the age of 11 she had already decided to become a lawyer; she first practiced her public speaking skills in the subway while collecting money for Zionist causes.

    Beginning Library Research on CHICANO/LATINO STUDIES
    Stanford University Libraries' collections on the historical and contemporary experience of Hispanic Americans, and in particular Mexican Americans, are extensive, making Stanford an excellent place for students conducting research in this area. The project Linking the Americas provides fulltext of most Latin American books published by the Stanford Press, plus other important materials. The interdisciplinary nature of Latino Studies means that relevant titles are dispersed throughout the collections depending upon subject matter. Use Socrates , Stanford's online catalog, to locate books and other materials. Use the library's print or electronic indexes to locate journal articles and published papers. Socrates can tell you what library materials Stanford owns and where they are located, by searching one of the following options: author, title, organization, or subject. When searching Use Socrates , it helps to know the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). One method of identifying the subject headings is by checking the Library of Congress Subject Headings bound volumes. Another (online) method is to locate material you know is on the your topic by doing an author
