Before the Wave: Puerto Ricans in Philadelphia, 1910–1945. This book recounts the genesis of the Puerto Rican community in Philadelphia during the interwar years (1917-1945) and connects the origins of this community to the mass migration of the post-WW II years when Puerto Ricans consolidated their presence in Philadelphia (1945-1985).
