Tales from the Basques in the United States
The William A. Douglass Center for Basque Studies is pleased to announce a new blog series: Tales from the Basques in the United States. These blog posts are the result of research done for the Center's publication, Basques in the United States, compiled by Koldo San Sebastián, with the assistance of Argitxu Camus-Etxekopar, Joxe Mallea-Olaetxe, Jone Laka, José Luis Madarieta, to name a few. The original intent of this book was not to be an encyclopedia, but instead to become a way to share stories and anecdotes about the thousands of Basques who made new lives for themselves in the U.S. To enjoy some of these stories, click here.
