This collection consists of audio cassette tapes which contain either interviews or lectures which are relevant to the history of Jews who settled in the American Southwest or to more general Jewish topics.
The Fred Rochlin Papers contain material relating to his research on the southwestern Jewish community. The collection includes material relevant to the history of Jewish individuals, commercial operations, and communal institutions in Arizona, principally southern Arizona.
This collection was compiled between 1949-1989 by Rabbi Floyd Fierman, Ph.D. (1917-1989), who served Temple Mount Sinai of El Paso, Texas from 1949 to 1979. He was also dedicated to interfaith education and communication and to tracking the history of Jews in the binational southwest.
