    The Manuel Rafael Giberga Angulo papers document the political and professional careers of a Cuban American prominent in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Appointed by Richard M.

He acted as general liaison with the Cuban American community for the Nixon administration and was active in enlisting Cuban American support for the Republican Party. Giberga Angulo's papers include significant materials relating to Cuban refugees and to Cuban exile organizations opposed to the government of Fidel Castro. There is also a substantial amount of correspondence and printed matter pertaining to Cuban American community life, especially in Florida.
    Following Giberga Angulo's death in 1974, his wife Lillian Giberga was appointed to succeed him in his official posts, and the papers include correspondence and other materials concerning her activities.
