This collection includes ledgers, correspondence, tax documents, newspapers, scrapbooks, photographs, theses and reports from
members of the Board of Trustees, grantees, and staff of the Del Amo Foundation. Subjects include the Spanish Civil War and
research and graduate study in Spain and the United States.
The Del Amo Foundation was established on May 14, 1929, in Los Angeles, California, to oversee the distribution of the Del
Amo Foundation Educational Grant. The Foundation was founded by Dr. Gregorio del Amo (husband of Maria Susan Delfina Dominguez
of the Rancho San Pedro) as part of his interest in supporting the exchange of information between Spain and Southern California.
Earlier, in 1926, Dr. del Amo authorized sufficient funds for the construction of an international residence hall at the University
of Madrid in Spain. The Del Amo Foundation was established separately, though in conjunction with the completion of the residence
hall, the Fundación del Amo.
