Notes

Summary:
This is an oral history interview with Mary Fontanills, the daughter of Manuel Aparicio, one of the most famous lectors, or readers, in Ybor City's cigar factories. Aparicio came to Tampa when he was fifteen and quickly became a lector; the workers liked his ability to give each character a distinct voice. He was also involved with local theatre groups as an actor, director, and writer. After the factories banned lectors, Aparicio had a radio program and a newspaper, and eventually went to New York, where he worked as a translator for the United Nations. In this interview, Fontanills shares her memories of her father, discusses her own life in Ybor City, and comments on some of Tampa's Latin politicians.
Venue:
Interview conducted July 26, 1983.
Statement of Responsibility:
interviewed by Gary Mormino.
