Series 3: Guatemala Files

Divided into three alphabetically arranged subseries, this series encompasses general files and the work of two individuals involved in AmW's Guatemala projects. Represented in the first sub series (1966-1988) are the general files. The second subseries (1978-1984) holds Eliecer S. Valencia's Guatemalan refugee project files collected during the research for his volume, "Guatemalan Refugees in Mexico, 1980-1984" (AmW, 1984). Embodied in the third subseries are Frank E. Howard's efforts as a legal consultant (1989-1990) on behalf of AmW handling asylum cases.
