    Title: Pablo Macedo Collection of Mexican notorial, mining and colonial documents,
    Date (inclusive): 1600 - 1908

    Abstract: Papers probably collected by the family of Pablo Macedo, Mexican lawyer and professor of political economy, mostly relating to his father Mariano's claim to the Hacienda de Nuestra Senora de las Rosarios (a.k.a. "Los Reyes"). The materials, written in Spanish, include colonial documents, called "mercedes," relating to land tenure in the Itzmiquilpa region of Mexico, dated from the seventeeth century and signed by Spanish viceroys. Also included are inspection reports from Mexican mines, dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries; two papal bulls, dated 1711 and 1806; a handwritten supplement to a manual of Mexican agriculture, 1869; and an autograph letter signed by Pablo Macedo, 1908.

    Historical Background

    Pablo Macedo was born in Mexico City on February 1, 1851. His father may have been Mariano Macedo (d. 1869), a minister in the government of General Mariano Arista. A disciple of Gabino Barreda (1818-1881), Pablo Macedo became a lawyer and served as a professor of political economy at the Escuela de Leyes (School of Law). He was the author of "La evolucion mercantil," "Communicaciones y obras publicas," and "Tres monografias que dan idea de una parte de la evolucion economica de Mexico" (Mexico: J. Bollesca, 1905). He died in Spain on December 25, 1918.
    Based on a letter from Pablo Macedo, found in the collection, it can be assumed that the materials belonged to the Macedo family. How the papers came to UCSD in unknown. The materials were originally enclosed in a rustic leather portfolio and found in the vault of the Mandeville Department of Special Collections in 1986. It is possible that the papers may have been included in one of the many book collections acquired by the UCSD Library.
