This collection contains the personal papers of Joseph León Helguera, professor of History at Vanderbilt University for 28 years, specializing in Latin American History. A majority of the collection is unprocessed, but a series on the United States Peace Corps-Colombia project circa 1960-1962 is processed and consists of two boxes.
This collection contains approximately 110 postcards with pictures from around Colombia. Some were sent from approximately 1966-1975. An inventory exists in the box.
An account of births and deaths at Santa Cruz, an enormous royal plantation on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. The table has a section for slaves (born, died, ran off, recovered) and for various types of livestock (cattle, sheep, horses, pigs). At the foot are noted the number of slaves, civilians, and soldiers who were in the plantation's hospital.
This collection contains the papers of Zapata Olivella, noted Afro-Colombian novelist, anthropologist, folklorist, physician and playwright who was known throughout Latin America as the “Dean of Black Hispanic Writers.” The collection provides a unique window on the history and society of Colombia and on people of African descent in the Americas as a whole.
