"The Man Who Saved Orwell"
by David Jacobs via Hoover Digest
The Spanish collections concentrate on twentieth-century political history. Many relate to the Spanish Civil War and include memoirs of US volunteers who fought for the Spanish Republic. Of particular significance are Burnett Bolloten's collected research materials, which are extensive. Other collections pertain to US diplomats in Spain during the Franco era and groups opposed to Franco's dictatorship.
