One of the most distinguished Hispanic scholars, Dr. George Isidor Sanchez devoted his adult life to the educational and social needs of the Spanish- speaking. While at the University of Texas, he dedicated 40 years to lecturing, consulting and directing projects and programs on bilingual, bicultural and minority education. His efforts are responsible for most of the bilingual and bicultural programs today. He also was an expert in Latin American education. He authored several works and his ideology has been published in hundreds of articles. Active with the League of United Latin American Citizens and president from 1941-1942, Sanchez was a leading spokesperson against discrimination and educational segregation until his death in 1972.
