Description

Scope and Content

Microfilm copies of manuscripts by Francisco Xavier Eugenio de Santa Cruz y Espejo (1747-1795), early Ecuadorian political figure and precursor of Ecuadorian independence. Espejo, a doctor, helped found the Escuela de Concordia in Quito. Prof. Astuto copied these manuscripts from various governmental and private libraries in Ecuador and Colombia while on a research fellowship from the Organization of American States in 1973 and on a research grant from St. John's University in 1975. The collection includes a printed volume of three of Espejo's works edited by Astuto in 1981 & his typescript (1,184 p., with his corrections) of Las Obras Educativas by Espejo.
