The Bolivian collections center on the modern period. They include the papers of trade unionist and politician Juan Lechín Oquendo and the collection of Elisabeth Burgos-Debray, which includes documentation on the trial of Régis Debray, a French writer accused of participating in the guerrilla campaign of Che Guevara in Bolivia in 1966–67. Other collections concern agricultural and educational assistance provided by the United States.
