Abstract Jess Agraz (b. 1940) outlines his family genealogy and recalls growing up in Laredo, Texas. The family moved to Salt Lake City, where his father was attached to the Mexican consulate. He talks about going to school in Salt Lake and playing basketball before returning to Laredo to finish high school. He returned to Utah to attend the University of Utah and remained in Utah. He discusses his experiences at various places his father was assigned, contact with the Mormons, working at the Hotel Utah while going to college, and meeting his future wife.
