The collection consists of approximately 350 photographs of Mexican revolutionary and President Venustiano Carranza, including
depictions of Carranza on national tours and in areas being attacked by Revolutionaries during his time as Mexico's president
(1917-20). Photographs in the collection also include portraits of Carranza and other prominent Mexican figures, including
Isidro Fabela and Álvaro Obregón.
Venustiano Carranza Garza was born in 1859 in Cuatro Ciénegas, Coahuila, Mexico, to a wealthy cattle-ranching family. He attended
good schools and used his wealth to rise in the political scene, where he gave his support to Francisco Madero's revolution
in 1910 and became Madero's Minister of War in 1911. Carranza returned later that year to Coahuila, where he was elected governor
and implemented a wide array of judicial, labor and tax reforms.
