A terrible bout of tuberculosis almost killed George I. Sánchez in 1944. It took him over a year to recover. And even then his health was never the same. Upon returning to Austin without his wife and children, who remained in New Mexico, Sánchez experienced several ugly salary disputes with his university administration. This disagreement affected his employment at the University of Texas for decades after. As he divorced his first wife and remarried, George Sánchez engaged in activist research by using GEB funding to create an integrationist pressure group of educators, the Southwest Council on the Education of Spanish-Speaking People (SWCESSP), and a scholarly research center, the Study of Spanish-Speaking People (SSSP).
