The Steiner Papers include the personal and professional papers of Stan Steiner covering the time period from 1940 - 1987 and occupy 69 linear feet. They document the personal and intellectual activities of a writer, a social historian, a moralist, a folklorist, an anecdotalist, and a myth-teller. His writingsrsome twenty books and countless articlesdare a continuing search for vanishing cultures and the histories of forgotten people, specifically of the American West. To that end, Steiner wrote about Native Americans, the Chinese who helped build the West, Mexican Americans, New Mexico and New Mexicans, ranchers, farmers, cowboys, and Islanders. His goal was to disabuse his readers of stereotypes and misinformed images of the West by telling the complicated, nuanced, and elemental stories of these people in their own words, what Steiner called "testimonials." His manuscripts provide multiple draft copies of many of these testimonies as well as typed manuscripts and photostats of typed drafts and published works by Steiner.

The slogan Yes we can!"-in the form Si Se Puede!"-predates Obama's 2008 presidential campaign by more than four decades. It was the coinage of the United Farm Workers' cofounder Cesar Chavez: a man who led his organization to many victories and secured collective bargaining rights for California farm workers. A charismatic leader who continues to inspire much controversy, Chavez built the United Farm Workers into a major force and a voice for the Mexican-American community, previously excluded from national politics.
