The Los del Valle Oral History Project began in 1992 with the objectives of collecting and preserving the historical recollections of people in South Texas researched by scholars and underdocumented in archives and publlshed research. Some interviewees have received national acclaim, such as folklorist and scholar Americo Paredes, conjunto pioneers Narciso Martinez and Eva Ybarra, writer Carmen Tafolla and Medal of Honor recipient Jose M. Lopez. Also included are Benito Trevino, ethnobotanist from Rio Grande City and Mary Helen Berlanga, educational proponent from Corpus Christi. This is one of the first oral history collections about Mexican Americans in Texas to be preserved on videotape. Thirty edited volumes and numerous unedited profiles are on loan at the Latin American Studies Collection in the Nettie Benson Library at the University of Texas at Austin.
