Father Luis Olivares, a Biography: Faith Politics and the Origins of the Sanctuary Movement in Los Angeles

By Mario T. García | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

In writing a full-length biography of an individual such as Fr. Luis Olivares, there are many people to thank. First and foremost is Henry Olivares, Fr. Luis’s older brother, who, through these many years of my research and writing of this story, has provided incredible support, both materially and personally. I owe a debt to Henry and his wife Lillian for their encouragement and prayers. I also want to thank the other members of the Olivares family in Texas who assisted through allowing me to interview them. They include the late Damaso Jr., Teresa, Sister Victoria, and Socorro. Oral history was indispensable for this project and those who were kind enough to grant me interviews are listed in the bibliography, but I want to tell them how grateful I am for their time, support, and, in some cases, access to their personal collections related to my research. For giving me access to key archival materials, I want to single out the staff at the Claretian Provincial House in Los Angeles for allowing me to look at Fr. Olivares’s collection, which they retained. At La Placita church, I want to thank Fr. Steve Niskanen, C.M.F., the then-pastor, who likewise permitted me to examine the collection of materials that belonged to Fr. Olivares, which were kept at the church. In addition, Fr. Mike Kennedy, S.J., as then-pastor of Dolores Mission in East Los Angeles welcomed me to research the extensive collection of documents related to Fr. Olivares and the sanctuary movement in Los Angeles in their church archives. Furthermore, I am grateful for the assistance I received at the Chancery Archival Collection, Archival Center, Archdiocese of Los Angeles at San Fernando Mission for documents on Fr. Olivares; the Daley Library at the University of Illinois, Chicago, for material related to the United Neighborhoods Organization (UNO); the staff at the Briscoe Center on American History at the University of Texas at Austin for related material on UNO; and the staff at Special Collections in the Hesburgh Library at the University of Notre Dame for materials on Fr. Olivares and PADRES. For photos used in the book, I am grateful to the Department of Special Collections at the Charles E. Young Research Library at UCLA; Henry Olivares; Fr. Juan Romero; Debra DiPaolo; and María Valdivia.
