Abstract: Photocopies of documents collected by the Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores de Mexico and held in the Archivo General de
la Nacion in Mexico City, related to the investigation for violation of neutrality laws, indictment, and extradition of Ricardo
and Enrique Flores Magón, Juan Sarabia, Antonio I. Villarreal, and other suspected associates of the Junta of the Mexican
Liberal Party in the southwestern United States from 1907 to 1911.
Scope and Content of Collection
The Ricardo Flores Magón Documents contain photocopies of materials from the Archivo General de la Secretaria de Relaciones
Exteriores de Mexico, Mexico City, related to the investigation under federal indictment of violation of neutrality laws and
extradition of the Flores Magón brothers and other suspected members of the Mexican Liberal Party from 1907 to 1911. Materials
include correspondence and telegrams of the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations, various Mexican consulates in the United
States, and United States federal officials, including George Wickersham, Attorney General; transcripts of legal affidavits
and depositions; transcripts of the correspondence of the Flores Magón brothers; and clippings of articles and pamphlets published
by and about the Magón brothers.
The documents are arranged numerically by the document numbers from the original ordering system used in the Archivo General
de la Secretaria de Relacions Exteriores de Mexico. Since some documents, such as letters, received only one number even though
they have multiple pages, there are more pages than document numbers.
Ricardo Flores Magón (1873-1922), President of the Junta of the Mexican Liberal Party and publisher of REGENERACIONES, Enrique
Flores Magón, his brother, and other individuals associated with the Junta of the Mexican Liberal Party in Los Angeles, California
were repeatedly imprisoned and investigated from 1907 to 1911 under federal indictment for violating United States neutrality
laws. During this period, the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations, various Mexican consulates in the United States, and
United States federal officials corresponded regularly regarding the evidence of violation of neutrality laws and extradition
of the Flores Magón brothers and other members of the Junta of the Mexican Liberal Party. The original correspondence along
with related materials such as newspaper clippings and legal documents were saved and are stored at the Archivo General de
la Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores de Mexico in Mexico City. Mr. Pablo Martinez photocopied Tomos XVI and XVII of these
records and gave them to the University of California, San Diego.
