Latin American History

Latin American historical materials can be found both in the Ayer and Greenlee collections of the Newberry Library. One can find information covering the discovery and colonization of different countries in the Americas and many different areas of Latin American history. The collection also dates back to Mayan and Mexican archaeology. One particular movement that is strongly documented in this collection is the spread of Catholicism in Middle and South America between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries.

Providing that I would be able to access materials in the Newberry, I would love to use the Latin American History and Linguistics collections for some sort of research before I graduate from Elmhurst. I think I would love seeing some of the artifacts and documents that the library owns.
