The papers of Hernán Cubillos Sallato document several aspects of the Pinochet era in Chilean politics. Cubillos Sallato's
tenure as Chilean foreign minister included negotiations between Argentina and Chile after a severe dispute developed between
the two countries over the Beagle Channel. An end to the conflict, which verged at times on warfare, was mediated by Pope
John Paul II. Cubillo Sallato's position as cabinet minister meant that he was also near the center of decision making on
other matters under Pinochet, including the wholesale adoption of free market economic principles. He also played a key role
as manager of
El Mercurio and all its holdings during the Allende period.
