For some of the most colorful, detailed, and useful primary documentation on immigration history, experienced researchers consult autobiographical materials, including memoirs, family chronicles, and oral histories. American Immigrant Autobiographies focuses exclusively on autobiographical manuscript materials, thus opening for researchers largely untapped areas for study. The initial part of this series features over 50 unpublished autobiographical manuscripts from the Immigration History Research Center at the University of Minnesota. Spanning the period from the late 19th century to the 1960s and representing the major ethnic groups of Eastern and Southern Europe, these autobiographical writings provide details on immigrant attitudes on such topics as politics, ethnic solidarity, cultural adaptation, and the roles of the sexes.
