Guatemala

The Guatemalan collections highlight political developments and social conditions. Several contain materials on the civil war from 1960 to 1996, including one (Burgos-Debray Papers) with extensive documentation on the life of the prominent Indian activist Rigoberta Menchú. The Jean Meadowcroft Papers are in part concerned with US educational assistance to Guatemala.
