HIS 350L: Chile: From Revolution to Counterrevolution

Benson Chilean Primary Resources

Benson (and Briscoe) Archival Primary Resources

Some of our classtime was spent looking at documents from some of our archival collections. Here are links to the Finding Aids of our relevant archival collections, in addition to the materials from several of those collections. Don't forget that you can search the Texas Archival Resources Online for other archival materials in archives across the state, including the Benson Latin American Collection.

Papers of Joyce Horman and Edmund Horman, wife and father of Charles Horman who was abducted and executed during Pinochet's September 1973 coup d'état in Chile. The Hormans sued Henry Kissinger and Nixon Administration officials over Charles Horman's wrongful death and its concealment.
