Los Conquistadores, 1935/36

"We, the Spanish-speaking students of Arizona State College at Tempe, in order to develop a better understanding between ourselves and others; to gain greater social, cultural and intellectual values through our association with others; to interest others in a college education, especially those of our own nationality, do hereby organize this club. The name of this club shall be 'Los Conquistadores.' Said club shall exist on the campus of Arizona State College at Tempe." (Preamble, 1937).

"Los Conquistadores" was founded on October 1, 1937. Dr. Irma Wilson, Spanish Department, served as the group's first adviser. Los Conquistadores remained an active and visible group on the campus of Arizona State University until 1967.
