Series VI: Trip to Latin America, 1907-1908

Correspondence received by Ferrero family when travelling through Argentina and Brazil in 1907 comprises the bulk of this series. Correspondents include intellectuals and public figures of the time, such as members of the Academia Brasileira de Letras (Academy of Letters of Brazil) and statesmen who were engaged to introduce Ferrero to the Literary and Historical institutions in Brazil. There are two letters from Brazilian writer, Machado de Assis, arranging for a series of Ferrero lectures in Brazil.

It should be noted that Ferrero's speech, La Culture Latine a L'Epoque Actuelle, given in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1907 can be found in Series VII: Addendum, Published Articles and Essays.

Also here are clippings regarding the Ferrero's trip and the repercussions of the trip in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, and a small amount of ephemera such as menus, announcements of talks and invitations received.
