The research for this report was conducted as a result of an interdisciplinary course of Anthropology and History at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley during the Fall semester of 2020. During the pandemic, we shifted from conducting this course through group projects and students instead produced individual primary source research. This occurred simultaneously as students and the rest of the populace sought to make sense of their experiences in the very changed framework of the COVID-19 world. The effort epitomizes the importance of recording history in real time, especially within a region that was as so negatively impacted by the coronavirus as the Rio Grande Valley of Texas was in the Summer of 2020.
