Los Gallos

Salvador Roberto Torres Papers, CEMA 38, Department of Special Collections, University Library, University of California, Santa Barbara.

Los Gallos emblem and jacket.

Many jacket clubs in the area included a reference to “Logan Heights” below their club symbol. With the advise of Al Johnson Los Gallos chose to claim “San Diego” on their jacket in hopes of extending themselves to a larger community. Their jackets became a “shield” for the members, while also making them a target of the San Diego police.
