Froebel: ethnography of an urban school (1974) part 2 / by Nicole Marroquin

If I could have anything, it would be to have access to an archive of all of the Spanish-language newspapers that covered local news on the Near West and Lower West Sides in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Thing is, these newspapers have not been collected, and there is no archive of Spanish Language newspapers in Chicago. (trying not to shout.)  I found two issues of El Informador at the Chicago History Museum and I found issues from 6 various newspapers in the Walter Reuther Library's collection of the Chicago UFW Strike Office. There were at least 7 Spanish Language newspapers that covered the 1973 Froebel uprising, according to Bishop, who took note of what reporters were present.

Here is his bibliography, including the newspapers that were on the scene. There's a side to this story I have not read, and it's in these newspapers.  

Bishop observed the students closely and drew this diagram of a 1973, noting that boys rarely initiated a dance, and stayed together throughout most of the evening, which sounds like a middle school dance to me. He reports that there was a female DJ at this dance, and I want to know everything about her! What exactly did she spin? What made the students run out on the floor? What requests were made?
