Biographical Note

Pastora San Juan Cafferty was born in Cienfuegos, Cuba on July 29, 1940 before moving to Miami in 1948 and settling in Alabama where her mother taught college Spanish. After receiving her BA in English from St. Bernard College in 1962, Cafferty went on to earn her MA and PhD in American Literary and Cultural History from George Washington University in 1966 and 1971, respectively. She worked as a special assistant to the U.S. Secretary of Transportation from 1969 to 1970 and as a special assistant to the General Assistant Secretary in the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development from 1970-1970 before joining the University of Chicago faculty in 1971. While a professor, she also worked as an urban planning researcher at the University of Chicago and the National Opinion Research Center, with a focus on race and ethnicity in the United States. Additionally, Cafferty sat on countless boards for various corporate and non-profit organizations, including Harris Financial Corporation, People’s Energy Corporation, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Rush Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center, Lyric Opera Association, and the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations. Cafferty retired from her professorship at the University of Chicago in 2005, and a lecture series was established in her honor. Cafferty was preceded in death by her first husband Michael Cafferty, former chairman of the Chicago Transit Authority, and her second husband Henry P. Russe, former dean of Rush Medical College and vice president of medical affairs before her own death in 2013.
