The papers support research in important areas of Puerto Rican history, as well as in North American participation in international human rights. While they are exceedingly rich in insight and information about the development of the Nationalist Party of Puerto Rico and its leader, Pedro Albizu Campos, they also contain materials on other independence movements in Puerto Rico, on repression and political prisoners, and on the colonial relationship of the United States to Puerto Rico. There is also information on the history of the University of Puerto Rico and student movements. The collection consists of awards, correspondence, writings, subject files, clippings, flyers, notes, programs, publications, photographs, secret files known as carpetas and audiocassettes.
