América Latina en las Bibliotecas Stanford / Latin America at the Stanford Libraries

(Also in English after Spanish text)

La Universidad de Stanford y una biblioteca de 11,000 volúmenes reciben al primer grupo de estudiantes (425 hombres y 130 mujeres) en octubre de 1891.  Desde sus inicios la nueva institución establece vínculos con América Latina al llegar John Casper Branner como jefe del Departamento de Geología al año siguiente.  Branner ya había visitado el hemisferio sur varias veces y lo haría de nuevo con expediciones científicas al Brasil en 1899 y 1911.   No sorprende que las primeras tesis de maestría con enfoque latinoamericano mostraran la influencia de Branner: geología en América Central (1911) o región petrolera mexicana (1912).

I am excited to share that the John J. Johnson papers are now available for research through the University Archives. John J. Johnson (1912-2004) served as a professor of Latin American history at Stanford from 1946 to 1977, and continued to contribute to the field through research publications, journal editorship, teaching, and mentorship long after his retirement. This collection represents the latter part of Johnson’s career.
