Abstract

Description

"The Lubbock Entertainer is a new and unique publication idea devoted to and dedicated to the entertainment activity of the community. Its purpose and objective is to stimulate interest and fulfill the need for a one-stop consolidated printed reference easily available."
The collection is focused on periodicals published by Leandro Rivera regarding Tejano music acts. It also includes numerous other publications relating to Hispanic Texas and its business community in Lubbock during the late 20th century.
The publisher and entrepreneur Leandro "Lee" Rivera was prominent in the founding of several West Texas business associations for Hispanic merchants. In addition, he was active in community events, scholarship fundraising and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). After moving from Lubbock to East Texas in the 1990s, he has recently retired to Mexico.
Newsprint periodicals have been separated to prevent deleterious impact on other materials. Publications are grouped by title and placed in date order. The collection is in good condition and is part of the Crossroads of Music archive.
