History in Documents
The written word plays a uniquely significant role in America's history. Special Collections holds letters and manuscripts associated with John F. Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt, Sam Houston, J. Edgar Hoover, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., among others. This selection of letters and manuscripts includes documents of historical and personal significance that reveal a brief glimpse into the lives of these well-known Americans.
Also, a petition from Fray Buenaventura de Armadea, attorney general for the Franciscan Provinces in New Spain, to abolish a decree preventing missionaries in Zacatecas from collecting alms to purchase holy oil and wine, and ministering. The document was prepared in Mexico City on September 20, 1696. The petition was granted. This document is about a land dispute (c. 1716). Although it mentions Viceroy Zuñiga, petitions of this kind often addressed viceroys or other high-ranking officials, but were inspected and approved by mid-level bureaucrats.
