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.

Javier Benedet’s Spanish Civil War Collection

The recently acquired Javier Benedet collection contains significant materials relating to the Spanish Civil War and to fundraising efforts in Northern California on behalf of the Republican side in that conflict. The Benedet papers also provide documentation on the plight of Republican refugees in the aftermath of the Civil War and on the political life of the Spanish anti-fascist diaspora in France, Mexico, and other countries. In terms of volume, the Benedet papers now constitute the second largest collection (after the Burnett Bolloten papers) in the archives pertaining to the Spanish Civil War.
