Papers of Argentine Juan Atilio Bramuglia, President of UN Security Council during the Berlin Blockade

Friday, December 3, 2010

The Hoover Institution has long had the best collection in any public archive in the world on Juan Domingo Perón and Peronism in Argentina. An important part of the Peronism collection, which relates more directly to world politics than most other Perón materials, has long been the personal archive of Juan Atilio Bramuglia (d. 1962), which was recently been strengthened by the acquisition of new materials related to the Berlin Blockade that began in 1948. This collection now includes cables and private correspondence between Bramuglia and Perón on the Berlin crisis and other materials, including speeches, interviews, and photographs, relating to international and Argentine domestic affairs.
