Overview

This volume provides the researcher with an excellent tool for investigating the history, politics, and culture of Paraguay. Although various libraries, museums, and archives in the U.S. contain documentary collections of interest to Paraguayanists, they are little known and thus underutilized. Whigham and Cooney help correct this problem. Not only do they describe the most famous collections in such libraries as the University of Texas at Austin, the Library of Congress, and the Oliveira Lima Library at Catholic University, they have also uncovered some obscure materials. From the Museum of Russian Culture in San Francisco to the Mennonite Archives at Bethel College in Kansas, they have run the gamut of available resources.

This guide discusses diplomatic correspondence, genealogical materials, missionary records, political reports, and unpublished personal reminiscences. The authors also offer hints and advice on working in the various repositories and suggest research themes that might be developed using particular collections. An attractive format and a thorough subject index make this volume easy to use as well as informative.
