El Paso Museum of History Presents El Paso: The Other Side of the Mexican Revolution

The El Paso Museum of History and the UTEP History Department present El Paso: The Other Side of the Mexican Revolution.

El Paso provided a unique opportunity for both Americans and Mexicans to view – and sometimes participate in – war from the safety of a neutral country. Guest-curated by David Romo (author of Ringside Seat to a Revolution: An Underground Cultural History of El Paso and Juárez: 1893-1923), produced by faculty and fellow graduate students from the UTEP History Department, and in collaboration wit the History Museum staff, the exhibit, El Paso: The Other Side of the Mexican Revolution, looks at this conflict through the eyes and ears of contemporary writers and journalists, film makers, photographers, musicians, tourists, and businessmen, all of whom at some point of their lives had connections to El Paso. On display will be rare books, newspapers, photographs, and other artifacts from the families of actual participants, and the archives of the El Paso County Historical Society, UTEP Library, and the El Paso Public Library. Much of this material has never been seen by the public and constitutes an important part of El Paso’s cultural patrimony.
