Abstract

Carlos Larralde depicts Josefina Fierro de Bright (1913-1998) as a colorful individual who was indispensable to the Sleepy Lagoon Defense Committee for her influential contacts, promotion, and fund-raising. Other scholars have accorded less prominence to Fierro and more to the late Alice McGrath (1917-2009). Larralde bases his account heavily on his notes of oral interviews with key figures, notes that are of limited accessibility to other researchers (though currently under discussion with the Huntington Library). In an Afterword, Dr. Larralde challenges the McGrath school and its sources. We hope, in publishing this article, to initiate a dialogue on the relative historiographical value of various categories of sources, (merry. ovnick@csun.edu)
