Back Cover: Stockton, California. Mexican agricultural laborers who have come to help harvest beets eating their lunch. Photograph by Marjory Collins, May 1943. Library of Congress, Farm Security Administration - Office of War Information Photograph Collection, LC-DIG-fsa-8d29107.

A mere 75 years ago, Marjory Collins documented early arrivals of Mexican guest workers ready to support the success of American agriculture. Official agreements between Mexico and the United States—collectively known as the Bracero Program—provided much-needed assistance to the U.S. during labor shortages from 1942 to 1964.

These photographs are from Stockton, California, founded in 1849 by German immigrant Charles M. Weber (born Karl David Weber and also known as Carlos Maria Weber). The City of Stockton describes itself as "the first community in California to have an English name; every other community up to that point had been Spanish or Native American in origin." Weber originally called the town Tuleburg, renaming it to reference Commodore Robert F. Stockton of the U.S. Navy, who became the second Military Governor of California after taking the land during the Mexican-American War. Robert Stockton later became a U.S. Senator for New Jersey, much like Richard Stockton (Robert's father) and John P. Stockton (Robert's son), who each also served as U.S. Senator for New Jersey. Richard Stockton (Robert's grandfather) was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, while John Stockton (Robert's great-grandfather) was a landowner in Princeton, New Jersey, and was instrumental in establishing what is now known as Princeton University.

While the Stockton family history is recorded extensively, less is known about the history of those who lived in the Stockton area. Prior to California statehood, the area was part of Rancho Campo de los Franceses (Camp of the French Ranch), a Mexican land grant named for the numerous French-Canadians who camped there during trapping expeditions. The system of ranchos across California developed during Spanish colonization of land originally occupied by Native American tribes, including the Yatchicumne of the Northern Valley Yokuts, whose village of Pasasimas was located in present-day downtown Stockton. Awarded the status of "All-American City" on several occasions, Stockton truly demonstrates "U.S. and International Interconnectedness"—one of the themes explored in this edition of The History Teacher.
