Abstract

The papers of Herman Baca, a National City, California, Chicano rights activist and prominent member of the Mexican-American community, document the contributions and accomplishments made by Herman Baca and the Committee on Chicano Rights. Since the 1960s, Herman Baca has been educating and representing the Chicano community and the rights of undocumented immigrants by means of organizing protests, encouraging self-determination, and defending human rights. The papers embody the organizational elements of the Committee on Chicano Rights, the Mexican-American Political Association, and La Raza Unida Political Party in the form of meeting minutes, correspondence, press releases, writings, membership materials, and articles of incorporation and bylaws. Biographical materials illustrate both Herman Baca's efforts as an individual and his work as a business owner, the latter reflected in the Aztec Printing production files; subject files; legal case documentation; conferences and events both organized and attended; writings of others; a visual component including videorecordings, photographs, individual artist's work and Chicano movement art, and a large portion of newspaper clippings dated 1964-2006.

Biography

Herman Baca was born to Nicholas and Eloisa Carrasco Baca on April 5, 1943, in Los Lentes, New Mexico, a small agricultural community outside of Los Lunas. When he was eleven years old, his family moved to National City, California, where Baca attended Sweetwater Union School District schools through high school. Starting in the printing trade business after high school, he worked in a few local shops before opening his own private business, Aztec Printing, in 1969.

With the emerging Chicano movement in the 1960s, Baca became involved in local electoral politics with a Chicano perspective. His father's (Nicholas Baca) participation in New Mexico's intense electoral politics influenced his development and transformation in California from a believer in the two-party political system into an independent Chicano activist committed to self-determination and human rights.

Having previously worked as a block captain for the 1968 Richard Nixon presidential campaign, Baca organized the National City chapter of the statewide Mexican-American Political Association (MAPA) in 1968 and served as its president and southern region director until 1974. Despite the opposition of the local Democratic Party, Baca successfully managed Peter Chacon's primary election bid to win a seat to the California State Assembly; Chacon went on to author the state's bilingual education bill. Baca also managed the campaign of Ben Moreno, elected as a Southwestern Community College trustee, as well as other Chicano candidates.

In 1970, prompted by the lack of Chicanos represented by either the Republican or the Democratic parties, Baca organized the San Diego County chapter of La Raza Unida Party, a national third-party effort to increase the participation of the Chicano commmunity as both registered voters and political candidates. That same year, he served as the Southern California representative to the National Congreso de la Raza Unida, the party's national convention. Also in the early 1970s, while chairman of the board of "War on Poverty" programs such as the Mexican American Advisory Committee, now the Metropolitan Area Advisory Committee (MAAC), and NEPSI, a narcotics education and prevention program, Baca organized and served as the chairman of the board of Casa Justicia, a community-based social service agency providing support for undocumented persons dealing with immigration issues.

Not long after working on Peter Chacon's campaign, Baca helped organize the Ad Hoc Committee on Chicano Rights, representing thirty-two organizations in the Chicano community, with a purpose to address issues affecting the Chicano communities' civil and constitutional rights.

Finally in 1975, in reaction to the co-option of the government-funded community organizations by the traditional political apparatus, he reorganized the Ad Hoc Committee as the Committee on Chicano Rights (CCR). With Baca as its chairman, the CCR established itself as a community-based, non-profit, non-government funded, volunteer membership organization committed to developing social and political awareness in the Chicano/Mexicano/Latino communities.

Herman Baca currently operates Aztec Printing, resides in National City, and continues to address issues and be involved in local politics within the community, representing the Committee on Chicano Rights.
