Francisco Garcia Calderon's bound manuscript (1896) entitled "Replica al Alegato del
Ecuador" and two preliminary drafts were compiled between 1892 and 1896 to document the
history of border disputes between Peru and Ecuador over the provinces of Mainas, Jaen
and Tumbes. Also included is a bound file (1876-1909) related to a contract between the
Peruvian government and Nicolas Federic Barbier and Tranquille Stanislas Fenestre, French
citizens, for the construction of lighthouses along the Peruvian coast. The collection is arranged in two series: 1) BORDER
DISPUTES and 2) LIGHTHOUSE DISPUTE.
Francisco Garcia Calderon was born in Arequipa, Peru, in 1834. After finishing a degree
in law, he pursued a career in public service and worked in the Ministerio de Hacienda,
served as president of Arequipa's constitutional congress, and was a key figure in the
final peace accords between Peru and Chile.
