Summary

Consists of records documenting the administrative activities of Miguel A. Bretos as Counselor to the Secretary for Latino Affairs, 1994-1995, and Counselor to the Secretary for Community Affairs and Special Projects, 1995-1998. While a vast majority of the records predate the Smithsonian Center for Latino Initiatives (SCLI) (established in 1997 and opened in 1998), some records document the work of Bretos as SCLI Senior Scholar, 1998-2001; and even fewer records document the work of SCLI Director Refugio I. Rochin and SCLI Program Manager Judith Campos Scott. Materials include correspondence and memoranda; agendas, minutes, and meeting files; information pertaining to committees, such as the Latino Oversight Committee; program initiatives; professional activities files; news releases; grant proposals; event records; reports; exhibition records; subject files; reference files; budget summaries; and related materials; and some records from the unrelated Smithsonian American Endeavors.
