This collection is comprised of seven audio interviews with parishioners, nuns and clergy concerning the history of some of Houston’s predominately Mexican-American Catholic parishes from the 1910s to the 1970s.  These interviews were conducted for Trevino’s research when developing his book "The Church in the Barrio: Mexican American Ethno-Catholicism in Houston”. Trevino interviewed Teresa Villagómez Zavala and Hope G. Jimenez, Joe E. and Raquel A Gonzales, Petra Guillen, Mary C. Villagomez, Sister Dolores Cardenas, Esther Garcia, and Bishop John E. McCarthy.
