Josefina Niggli (1910-1983)

Niggli came to San Antonio from her home in Monterrey early in life to escape the Mexican Revolution. Travelling between the two cities, she started writing as a teenager, eventually producing Mexican Silhouettes, her first book of poetry. The Mexican-American tone of her work, which included plays, radio and television shows, and novels, laid groundwork for subsequent generations of Latin American artists.
