A. Rolando Andrade Collection - MS 1071
The Professor A. Rolando Andrade collection covers the date range 1959-2007. The collection consists of 7.75 linear feet of subject files, screenplays and other literary productions, scrapbooks, books and other printed material, photographic material, and audio recordings.
The material was donated to the Center for Archival Collections in August 2007 by A. Rolando Andrade. Additional material was donated by Professor Andrade in June 2008. All property, literary and duplication rights of the collection have been conveyed to the Center for Archival Collections and to the public for historical research. Copyrights for the screenplays in the collection are held by Kevin R. Andrade and only he may issue permission for their use.
The register was prepared by Dana Nemeth, Library Associate I, in September 2007 and revised in July 2008.
Dr. A. Rolando Andrade was an Associate Professor in Ethnic Studies at Bowling Green State University. Andrade was born and raised in Mexico by his parents. His Venezuelan mother grew up in Panama and his father was a minister in Mexico and the United States. Andrade holds two bachelor's degrees from Phillips University in Enid, Oklahoma and worked as a pastor in Kansas and Oklahoma before beginning his academic career. His master's and doctoral degrees are from the University of Oklahoma, where he taught for two years before coming to Bowling Green.
Professor Andrade began his career at BGSU as an assistant professor in 1977 and he was promoted to associate professor in 1982. From 2001 until his retirement in 2008, he taught in the Chapman Learning Community/Chapman Community at Kohl. During Andrade's tenure at BGSU, he developed a "Summer in Mexico" program, during which he took students for a two- to six-week academic exploration of Mexico and its culture. He established and was the liaison for a cooperative program between BGSU and the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara.
His other accomplishments include being the founder of Educators in College Helping Hispanics Onward, organizing the Latino Network Committee of BGSU, and serving as chair for BGSU's Human Rights and Cultural Diversity committees. He is also the former chair of the Bowling Green Human Relations Commission, and the city's 1992 Citizen of the Year. He was president of the Bowling Green Rotary Club in 2001-2002.
Kevin R. Andrade, a BGSU graduate, is A. Rolando Andrade's son. He lives in California and is pursuing a career as a Hollywood screenwriter.
The material in the collection relates primarily to Andrade's career at BGSU, the Kansas Youth Missions tours and the BGSU student trips to Mexico that Andrade chaperoned, his involvement with Rotary International, and his research interests.
One of Professor Andrade's career-long interests was the study of Mexico's political plans, especially during the historic period of La Reforma. Included in the collection are his research files and an unfinished manuscript on this topic. The research files contain copies of over thirty political plans, all in Spanish. Some of the files include English translations and Andrade's comments. The manuscript contains three near-complete chapters, while the rest of the sections are in various forms of completion. Several books on the Mexican constitution in the collection complement this series.
The collection also includes correspondence and news clippings regarding Baldemar Valasquez, founder of the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC), and a file illustrating Andrade's nomination of Valasquez for a BGSU honorary degree. Other items of interest are a speech on the Day of the Dead traditions in Mexico, books on Panama, FLOC publications, two Mexican Rotary publications, and an educational guide to Latino music culture of Toledo, Ohio. There are also fifteen audio tape cassettes of interviews, radio broadcasts, and other conversations with Andrade covering Latino issues, such as religion, labor, and education. It should be noted that some of the correspondence, publications, and audio tapes are in Spanish.
Also of interest is Andrade's typewritten reminiscence of the first Kansas Youth Missions Tour that he chaperoned in 1960, along with four scrapbooks for subsequent Kansas Youth Missions trips to Mexico that he also chaperoned in the early 1960s. There are two planning files for the "Chapman in Mexico" programs that Andrade developed as well as seven photograph albums of the BGSU summer in Mexico programs that Andrade chaperoned.
A particular strength of the collection is the over 1,200 color slides, mostly taken by Andrade, of Mexican cities, art, architecture, scenery, and people, covering the date range of 1959-1990. Note that the slides in boxes 7-10 were removed from a cardboard box labeled "Mexico slides." The images were arranged by subject and their original subject categories have been maintained in the inventory. The slides in box 11 were stored in individual bundles or small boxes and were labeled by subject, while one folder in box 11 contains slides of Mexico City taken ten months after a 1985 earthquake, which were removed from a carousel slide tray. The original order of these images has also been maintained. Although no scrapbook exists in the collection for the 1960 Kansas Youth Missions Tour, there are color slides in the collection from that trip.
Researchers of Mexican folk art may find a rare book on the artist José Guadalupe Posada in the collection of interest. One should also note that almost all of the publications in this collection are oversize and are in Spanish.
The screenplays in the collection were written by BGSU graduate, Kevin Andrade, A. Rolando Andrade's son. It does not appear that any of them have yet been produced.
Material related to the Bowling Green Rotary club and District 6600 was moved from the Andrade collection to MS-934 (Bowling Green Rotary Club collection) in September 2007. Material related to the BGSU Latino Student Union was moved from the Andrade collection to the University Archives Latino Student Union collection in September 2007 as well.
