- The Zinacantan photographs document the people and places in and around Zinacantan, Mexico in 1971.
- The Orange County Housecleaners photographs document the working lives of housecleaning staff in Orange County, California from 1971-2002.
The collection is available at UCISpace @ the Libraries at http://ucispace.lib.uci.edu/handle/10575/10875.
