It contains information on their political careers as well as the various protest movements over lands and elections that were suppressed by the Army during this period. It includes material on the various competing armies during the Mexican Revolution and early activity of the government party in the 1920s. A second part of the collection contains material on the construction of the Mexican state from 1920 to 1945 with materials from the Vicente Toledano archive. A final part of the collection consists of materials on Solidaridad (Pronasol) from 1968-2000, its programs and policies along with material on the Secretary of Social Development (Sedesol).
