    Scope and Content of Collection

    Correspondence, writings, serial issues, clippings, photographs, and miscellany, relating to Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional guerrillas in Nicaragua. Includes writings and letters by the Sandinista leader Carlos Fonseca Amador, widely (but incorrectly) reputed to be the founder of the FSLN in Nicaragua.
    The collection also contains unpublished materials by Fonseca and several letters from Sandinista defense minister Humberto Ortega in addition to more than three hundred mostly informal photographs of leaders and other members of Mexican, Nicaraguan and other Central American leftist groups and parties between the 1960s and the 1990s. A recent increment consists of twenty-three letters written to Fonseca in 1969-70 by his wife, Maria Haydée Terán, while he was in prison in Costa Rica.
