El Paso, the Mexican Revolution, and the History of the Lydia Patterson Institute
12:45 pm - 1:30 pm

First Lady of El Paso Adair Margo joins along with artist Gaspar Enriquez to discuss Voices of La Lydia, a comprehensive and illustration-rich history of El Paso’s Lydia Patterson Institute, founded in 1913 as both a ministerial school for Spanish-speaking boys and a mission that provided services for many fleeing the Mexican Revolution. Tune in as Margo talks about the institute’s notable alumni, including Abel Gomez, who rode with Pancho Villa; how Laura Bush brought the institute wider attention; and about what’s next for the institute.

Regrettably, Gaspar Enriquez will not be available to join this discussion.
