  • Letras Femeninas 1974: The Beginning Pat Hollis Smith

    January 16, 1994

    Dear Adelaida:

    . . . With regard to your request for information as to the formation of the

    association, I have enclosed copies revealing dates and people who were a part of the first issues of the journal.

    As well as I can remember, Victoria attended an SCMLA meeting in Houston in the fall of 1974 where she either met or became re-acquainted with three women professors from the University of Colorado: Eva Rudat, Hope

    Hamilton, and Yvonne Barrett. During the course of the conference, Victoria discussed her lifelong dream of publishing a journal devoted explicitly to the

    promotion of the study of works created by feminine Spanish, Hispanic, Mexican and Luso-Brazillian writers with these women who all had this same ambition. Thereupon, the association was formed with Victoria as its founder and the others as the remaining founding members.

    The first two volumes of the journal were published in Colorado; however, it was decided in 1977 to move its publication to the Lamar University Press. Since Kathleen Glenn became a part of the editorial board in the fall of 1975

    (Vol. I, No. 2), and always was one of Victoria's favorite and most respected

    colleagues, I believe she may be able to fill in any information gaps which I was either never privy to or have long since forgotten . . .

    Abrazos siempre,
