Larry Itliong Papers
In 1956 Larry Itliong founded the Filipino Farm Labor Union in California. With the formation in 1967 of UFWOC (United Farm Workers Organizing Committee) Larry Itliong became Assistant Director to Cesar Chavez in the union that would eventually become the UFW. In January, 1970 he was appointed National Boycott Coordinator of the UFWOC. Itliong resigned from the Union on October 15, 1971. He devoted the rest of his life to improving the lives of retired Filipino farm workers, and to a wide variety of community and civic projects, many of which were Filipino related. The collection consists of a small amount of materials from the early days of farm worker organizing. The bulk of the collection is Mr. Itliong's records of his post-UFW endeavors.
