A Life of Service: The Mari-Luci Jaramillo Collection, 1905-2007

The Mari-Luci Jaramillo Collection provides an unparalleled look at a life dedicated to and distinguished by service to community, state, and the nation. A native New Mexican and daughter of laborers, Mari-Luci Jaramillo grew from a studious child in La Vegas, NM to become a teacher, a leader in education reform, a national advocate for civil rights, and the first Latina Ambassador of the United States to Honduras.

This archival collection of correspondence, speeches, articles, photographs, and artifacts highlights her family history, early adulthood, and extensive career in higher education and government. It reflects the central beliefs of Mari-Luci Jaramillo’s life and career: family and community, pride of heritage, and that service to others is important.
