What's Inside this Collection.
The Institute of Texan Cultures presents El Regidor, a weekly newspaper and one of the few Spanish language newspapers published in San Antonio during the late nineteenth century. Pablo Cruz began publishing and editing El Regidor in 1888. Cruz, who was born in Coahuila, Mexico in 1866 and moved to Texas in 1877, was a strong advocate for education, public welfare and civic causes. After Cruz's death in 1910, the family continued publishing El Regidor until 1916.
