Collection Overview

The Frank Espada Photographs and Papers collection consists largely of photographic prints, contact sheets, negatives, and professional papers, spanning the length of his career as a photographer and community activist from the mid-1950s through 2010. The materials relate to Espada's Puerto Rican Diaspora Documentary Project; his project work on indigenous Chamorro communities in Micronesia, primarily in Guam, Tinian, and Saipan; his involvement in drug abuse prevention programs and HIV/AIDS outreach in San Francisco; and his documentary work and activism on behalf of civil rights, education, and housing rights movements.

A large series of professional papers provides supporting documentation of his life and work as a photographer, activist, community organizer, and teacher. The earliest date is found in this series, and belongs to an essay Espada wrote in 1946, "What democracy means to me."

The largest body of materials, which numbers over 12,000 items and includes photographs as well as manuscripts and over 100 recorded oral interviews, derives from Espada's work with Puerto Rican communities in the U.S. and in Puerto Rico.

Another significan group of materials derive from Espada's activism on behalf of voter registration and school desegregation in New York City from 1962-1970, and later in California in support of anti-poverty, HIV/AIDS and drug abuse prevention and outreach, and housing rights.

Other materials in the collection include research files on documentary and research topics; preparation for his many photography projects and related exhibits; a few videocassettes; teaching syllabi and notes from his photography courses at U.C. Berkeley; awards and memorabilia; and other manuscript and printed materials from his long career in photography.

Each of the photographic project series includes finished prints ranging in size from 8x10 to 24x30 inches; contact sheets and work prints; and negatives, housed in a separate series and closed to use.

Acquired as part of the Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University.

Contents of the Collection

1. Chamorro Documentary Project, 1990

2.5 Linear Feet, 5 boxes, Approximately 1572 items

In 1990, Frank Espada was asked by his friend and colleague from Chicago, Samuel Betances, to photograph the indigenous Chamorro people of Guam, Saipan, Titian and Rota in the Mariana Islands. Modeled after Espada's Puerto Rican Diaspora project, the aim of this project was to chronicle the Chamorro culture as well as the social challenges faced by this group, whose diaspora includes Hawaii and California. Some of the photographs in this series were taken at a Chamorro festival in California, but most were taken on Guam, the island with the largest concentration of Chamorro people. One series of about 290 work prints documents the funeral procession and expressions of protest after the suicide of former Guam governor Ricardo Bordallo in February 1990. Specific projects, programs, and protests are described in the photograph or folder titles. Most titles are retained from the originals.

Images document Espada's long and passionate involvement in early civil rights movements pursuing equal rights in voting, education, access to food, medical facilities, housing, and neighborhood development. He began by photographing voter registration drives in the early 1960s, desegregation protests and rallies, political campaigns by progressive candidates, and blighted, impoverished neighborhoods. Later, he also documented anti-poverty and housing rights actions in California, especially in San Francisco. Specific projects, programs, and protests are described in the photograph or folder titles. Materials are arranged roughly in order by decade. Most titles are retained from the originals.

4. Puerto Rican Diaspora, 1965-1989 and undated

30 Linear Feet, 41 boxes, Approximately 12,323 items

Images from the Puerto Rican Diaspora Documentary Project were taken by Frank Espada in over 30 locations throughout the United States and Puerto Rico in the 1970s and 1980s, chiefly from 1979 to 1981, although his interest in the topic began much earlier. The prints are organized by location: Boston, California, Chicago, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Washington D.C., and Wisconsin (Milwaukee). Reflecting settlement patterns of the diaspora, the largest series are Connecticut, New York, and Pennsylvania. Series include finished prints ranging in size from 8x10 to 24x30 inches, small work prints, and contact sheets.

Subjects range widely and include: many portraits of men, women, and children; family life in Puerto Rican communities; Puerto Rican-American culture and street life in large cities; education, drug rehabilitation, and job training programs; labor issues and Puerto Rican laborers, with one series focusing on mushroom workers in Pennsylvania; and portraits of human rights activists. In addition to his work in the continental U.S. and Hawaii, Espada also traveled to Puerto Rico, documenting emigrants who had returned to their homeland.

The Diaspora project was funded largely through a multi-year National Endowment for the Humanities grant; among Espada's papers in this collection are many files documenting the project's lifespan and its culmination in many exhibits, educational programs, and a book illustrated with many of the photographs, The Puerto Rican Diaspora: Themes in the Survival of a People (2007), also available in Duke Libraries.

Of additional interest are over 100 oral history interviews conducted by Espada with Puerto Rican migrants, and three interviews on videocassettes about his work on the project; his papers also contain many materials concerning the oral history phase of the project.

7. Professional and Personal Papers, 1946-2010

4.5 Linear Feet, 9 boxes

The Professional and Personal Papers Series offers supporting documentation related to Frank Espada's photographic work and teaching career, with an emphasis on the Puerto Rican Diaspora project. The papers comprise correspondence, writing drafts, notes, research files, statistics, reports, book production files, personal papers, and course materials. They are organized in these series: Chamorro Documentary Project; Civil Rights and Community Activism; HIV/AIDS Projects; Puerto Rican Diaspora Project; Personal Papers; and Teaching Materials.

The largest group of materials documents the decades-long lifespan of the NEH-funded Puerto Rican Diaspora Project. Files include preliminary research and planning, the grant application, and the administration of the grant, as well as project newsletters, reports, and extensive documentation on the many site visits in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Multiple folders relate to oral history interviews, including summaries, quotes, and a few transcripts. Another set of files documents exhibit preparation and logistics for the Diaspora exhibits, which traveled to many locations in the U.S. and Puerto Rico over a 15-year period. Other materials include documentation about social and economic conditions in Puerto Rico and the immigrant communities highlighted by Espada in the project.

The Chamorro Documentary Project materials, dating 1989-1990, include information about the different locations photographed by Espada, as well as notebooks and exhibit materials. Some negatives of exhibit panels were removed for preservation reasons to the Negatives Series.

The remainder of the Papers Series includes records from other projects relating to civil rights and community activism, both photographic and research-oriented; personal writings by Espada; biographical materials and photographs of Espada; and several boxes of teaching materials, 1990s-2000s, chiefly deriving from his position on the U.C. Berkeley faculty.

Historical Note

Frank Espada (1930-2014) was an American photojournalist, photographer, activist, educator, and community organizer. He was born December 21, 1930 in Utuado, Puerto Rico as Francisco Luis Espada Roig. His family migrated to New York City in 1939. He attended City College of New York but cut his studies short to join the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. Espada married his wife, Marilyn, in 1952. Together they raised two boys and one girl: Jason, Lisa, and Martín. After the war, he attended The New York Institute of Photography in New York City, where his mentors were W. Eugene Smith and Dave Heath. To support his family he worked as an electrical contractor for ten years.

From the late 1950s, Espada worked as a community organizer in New York City's most vulnerable and impoverished areas, and organized strikes against unfair rent increases, voter registration drives, sit-ins of welfare recipients and mothers, public school boycotts, and marches for civil and political rights. In 1979, he was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to document Puerto Rican communities in the US as well as those who returned to Puerto Rico. From 1990 to 1992, he undertook the Chamorro Documentary Project, documenting life for indigenous peoples in Micronesia.

In 1985, he and his family moved to San Francisco, where continued his activism, chiefly related to housing rights, the eradication of poverty, and education reform; he also worked with Mid-City Coalition for HIV Prevention in San Francisco to document and improve AIDS outreach. He became a teacher of photography, working for University of California, Berkeley, Extension Program, in San Francisco, and taught photography and darkroom techniques at the Academy of Art University and the San Francisco Art Institute. In 2006, he published The Puerto Rican Diaspora: Themes in the Survival of a People, and in 2008, received an honorary Doctor of Arts degree from Lehman College, Bronx, New York

Frank Espada died in New York City, February 16, 2014, at the age of 83. His documentary photographs have been exhibited around the world: at the Museum of Art in Chicago; Museo del Barrio, New York City; Honolulu Hale; and the Museo de Arte in Ponce, Puerto Rico; and Duke University's Rubenstein Library, among others.
