The Comite Patriotico Mexicano de Sur Chicago (Mexican Patriotic Committee of South Chicago) was already in existence in the 1930s. According to journalist and Southeast Chicago native Sue Ontiveros, leaders in the early South Chicago organization were E. Peraita, Luis Comejjo, Justino Cordero, Alfonso Juarez, Ruben Flores, Filemon Dianda and others. The group sponsored a range of community activities including this Halloween Dance with local musical groups and prizes. This image was donated by the Cordero family.
