On the cover: Leonor Villegas de Magnón (left) and Jovita Idar (right). March 17, 1913. 084-0597, General Photograph Collection, University of Texas at San Antonio, Special Collections - Institute of Texan Cultures. In “Por la Raza, Para la Raza: Jovita Idar and Progressive-Era Mexicana Maternalism along the Texas–Mexico Border,” Elizabeth Garner Masarik argues that the work Villegas de Magnón and Idar performed with La Cruz Blanca caring for soldiers wounded during the Mexican Revolution (shown here) is an example of the maternalism that formed a significant part of Idar’s early twentieth-century activism.
