Become Part of Our History:
Join Centro’s 100 Puerto Ricans

To encourage individuals and organizations to record and document their experiences for future generations, Centro and a group of community volunteers have launched the 100 Puerto Ricans Campaign. The goal is to urge those who have made a difference in our community to donate their important documents to the Centro Archives and to fill gaps in our collections.

Tribute to Edward González, Jr., Dr. Helen Rodríguez Trías, and Carlos González

Edward (Eddie) González, Jr. was a labor organizer and community leader. His wife, Dr. Helen Rodríguez Trías, was a prominent doctor.

Centro is now putting a spotlight on this couple in a traveling exhibit, curated by senior archivist Pedro Juan Hernández, as a way of bringing awareness to the Centro Library & Archives collections, which include the papers of these two outstanding Puerto Ricans.
