Richman: From Peasant to Migratory Farmworker: Haitian Migrants in U.S. Agriculture.From Associate Director Terry L. McCoy:
The contents of Occasional Paper No. 3 originated in 1982. Dr. Latortue gave his paper at a mini-seminar on Haiti held at the University in July. He returned a year later as a Visiting Scholar with the Caribbean Migration Program. Dr. Rocheleu’s paper was done as a part of a joint research Project conducted with Florida International University under the State STAR grant to investigate the impact of immigrants and refugees on Florida. Karen Richman’s paper is derived from her work on Haitians in the domestic migrant stream.
