    Title: Flores Magón Documents
    Identifier/Call Number: MSS 0582
    Physical Description: 0.6 Linear feet (2 archives boxes)
    Date (inclusive): 1907-1911
    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.

    Historical Background

    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.
