Monday, March 2, 2015

The Hoover Institution Library and Archives and the Center for Latin American Studies of Stanford University recently hosted an international conference on the ideas, organization, and political activity of the Peronist movement and of its leader, Juan Domingo Perón, in the period of his exile (1955–73) based on Hoover’s extraordinary collection of Perón’s personal papers from this period. There was such excitement generated by their research in these new materials, that the Argentine scholars decided to meet again for a second time in Argentina for a conference to discuss their findings from their archival work at Hoover.
