    Biographical/Historical note

    Daniel del Solar (June 13, 1940 - January 13, 2012) was a prominent Latino media activist, photographer, videographer, documentarian, and poet who succeeded in contributing a remarkable amount to the Latino culture throughout his life. Born to the Venezuelan painter Luchita Hurtado Mullican and the Chilean Time Magazine journalist Daniel del Sorel Morel, del Solar grew up in Mexico, New York, Mill Valley, and Santa Monica, California, where he graduated from Santa Monica High School before attending Harvard University and going on to establish a career in public media.
    In the early 1970s, he joined the Berkeley KPFA-FM Comunicación Aztlán Collective. This was an offshoot of the Freedom Archives, an organization committed to the preservation and distribution of over 5,000 hours of audiotape recordings from the late 1960s to the mid-1990s focused on social and cultural transformation. By the mid-1970s, he became the National Director of Training and Development at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in Washington D.C. He worked with KQED-TV as Community Resources Coordinator for “Open Studio,” an experiment giving more people access to the tools of media production, and served as General Manager of KALQ-FM in San Francisco from 1985 to 1992 as well as General Manager of WYBE-TV in Philadelphia from 1992 to 1995. He was also on the national board of Citizens for Independent Public Broadcasting and was Development Director of the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts.
    Settling in the Bay Area, del Solar actively participated for the next four decades in politics and art, writing poetry and documenting the movement towards progressive public media in the area. He co-produced a weekly radio program entitled “Reflecciónes de la Raza,” which aired on KPFA-FM, and contributed to the current KPFA weekly program “La Raza Chronicles,” which follows Latin political culture. He was a founding co-editor of “Tin-Tan,” a Chicano/Latino cultural magazine in San Francisco, contributed to the literary magazine El Tecolote Literario, and co-produced “Chile: Promise of Freedom,” an audio CD distributed on worldwide radio by the Freedom Archives. His photos have appeared online and in books, including one entitled The “Woman Factor” in the Stepwells of Gujarat, written by his friend Purnima Bhatt.
    Perhaps one of del Solar’s most enduring legacies was his involvement in many Latin American social justice and solidarity movements. His involvement was on a somewhat personal level, as one of his cousins in Chile disappeared during the reign of military dictatorship following Allende, and the junta in Santiago had one of his friends killed in Washington. He traveled widely, reporting on events in Cuba, Chile, and Nicaragua in addition to the work of Venezuelan leftist leader Hugo Chavez.
    Del Solar died in Oakland, California at the age of 71 after a long battle with metastatic prostate cancer. His marriage to Diane Diamond ended in divorce, and his second wife, Susan Miriam Castellon, died November 22, 2003. He has four half-brothers, John and Matt Mullican and Jim and Rodrigo Gill. His mother resides in Santa Monica.

    Scope and Content

    Del Solar's papers cover Latin American interests in the political and artistic area from the 1950s to the 2000s. Public broadcasting, U.S. activities in Latin America, and Latin American politics are mixed in with his personal daily activities. Del Solar was part of the early vanguard of minorities involved with public broadcasting in the United States. Summits and conferences with African Americans involved in Public Broadcasting and writing are also recorded in his papers with videos, and photos. Del Solar's exploration of his life, his work and passions are expressed through the many media modes and creative avenues available during his lifetime.
    These papers are as yet unprocessed. The audio and video portions are processed. The audio files are organized by title. The video files have been organized first by media type and then by title. In the cases where Del Solar has given his audio and video files a catalog number we have put the number in the title to maintain his catalog order.
    The remainder of the collection has been reviewed and accessioned. There are many versions of photos in different media along with videos and audio files on CDs, and DVDs. Digital files on external hard drives and some of the CDs and DVDs have been saved on the Special Collections server. The series in this guide outline the contents of his collection. For the current location of the materials there is an accession report which gives first the date when the box was accessioned then a box number. Some items listed in the series outline can be located by doing searches through the accession list. The nine series are: Biographical, Subjects, Writings, Posters, Artwork, Mexican antiquities, Photography, Audio and Video.
    The Biographical Series lists some of the many significant family members and friends who are represented in his papers. His family was involved in collecting South west, indigenous, and Latin American art. Many friends and family members were artists, collectors, poets, writers and activists. The collection includes exhibit information, movies, and photos of family members’ artwork. Photos of his family’s homes over time are of interest in the context of a family who lived with and created art.
