George I. Sánchez worked hard to embrace the Chicano Movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. But even though he admired this new activist culture and its youthful adherents, he fell short of fully subscribing to all that Chicanismo had to offer. Some of his ideas over civil rights strategy, restrictionism, and other topics were simply too old-fashioned for many young Chicano activists. And Sánchez continued to endure poor health, perhaps connected to his drinking. Sánchez's health declined to such an extent that his academic and activist work fell off significantly. He did aid with the creation of the University of Texas's Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS), but on the whole lived a quieter, more withdrawn life in his final years.
