dc.description.abstractBiographical perspective of Dolores Huerta, cofounder and first vice president of the United Farm Workers (UFW). Unlike her compatriot César Chávez, Huerta has received scant attention for her work on behalf of farm workers. What has been written tends to portray her as one dimensional and does not adequately address her leadership role within the union. To rectify these omissions, this thesis focuses on Huerta’s contributions to the union in light of her life experiences as whole. It briefly covers her childhood and young adulthood, 1930-1950, then moves on to her life as a political and social activist in the 1950s and 1960s. Huerta contributed a tremendous amount to the UFW. She was extremely devoted and intimately involved in everything from membership recruitment to political lobbying. Her life experiences are critical to understanding her work and provide an important perspective in evaluating the decisions she made as a leader.
