Ermilo Lozano

6th president - elected at the 1934 convention held in Corpus Christi, Texas. Served one term.

Ermilo Lozano introduced the governor system to LULAC and advanced the educational program of the organization. "His untiring efforts were repaid by the great increase that LULAC membership made during this time," LULAC News reported.

Lozano helped improved conditions in state prisons. He went to the governor of Texas and explained that it was impossible for Mexican American prisoners that knew no English to understand orders from guards that spoke only English. Consequently, Spanish-speaking prisoners were severely punished for disobedience. The governor agreed that bilingual guards were needed and some were hired.
