Book Review:
“The Man Who Hated Work and Loved Labor — The Life and Times of Tony Mazzocchi” This is a fascinating book about a labor leader who has had tremendous influence on our lives, but whose name is not even known by millions of Americans. Please read my review.

RESUME 9/1/95

Award-winning author HEDDA J. GARZA, educated at Queens College, New York City, was Political Science Consultant for SUNY-Plattsburgh and a consultant and tutor for SUNY-Empire State College. In 1982, Garza’s Watergate Investigation Index: Senate Select Committee Hearings and Reports on Presidential Campaign Activities (Wilmington, Delaware: Scholarly Resources, Inc.) received Choice magazine’s Outstanding Academic Book Award. In 1984, Garza’s companion volume was published: The Watergate Investigation Index: House Judiciary Committee Hearings and Report on Impeachment. Among Garza’s other literary prizes were the New York Public Library Annual Best Books for Young Adults List (1986). Her Joan Baez (1990) was the lead-off volume for Chelsea House’s Hispanics of Achievement series, for which she also wrote Pablo Casals and Frida Kahlo. In 1994 her Women in Medicine and Latinas: Hispanic Women in the United States were published, and in 1995 her African Americans and Jewish Americans and Without Regard to Race were published in Franklin Watts’ Multiculturalism Series. Her Women in Law volume with Franklin Watts is scheduled for publication in late 1995.

A specialist on biography, “lost history” and “multiculturalism,” Garza was the author of numerous articles for national magazines and newspapers. She also conducted the dramatic Harlem street interviews for the prize-winning documentary film No Vietnamese Ever Called Me Nigger (now available on VCR tape).

Garza’s well-reviewed biographies of Trotsky, Franco, Mao, and Allende were published by Chelsea House as part of their “World Leaders” series (preface by Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.). She was working on several books for a new series with Franklin Watts, “Amazing Secrets of Our Multicultural History,” when she died. Those books will nonetheless be completed on the basis of existing drafts and will appear in 1996 or 1997, as will her Latinos in Film book, already near completion. She also had two novels and two television screenplays recently completed and on the way to agents.

Garza lectured and conducted workshops at several major universities on current and historical events. She was a New York State Humanities Series NEH-funded Public Library Lecturer.

Ms. Garza loved playing with children, dancing, gardening, cooking, swimming, fishing, bicycling, and above all, writing her new fiction works.
