Pablo Macedo Collection of Mexican Notarial, Mining and Colonial Documents

About this Collection

Mexican colonial documents relating to land tenure in the Itzmiquilpa region of Mexico. Highlights include inspection reports from Mexican mines dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries; two papal documents, dated ca. 1805 and 1811; a handwritten supplement to a manual of Mexican agriculture, dated 1869; and an autograph letter signed by Pablo Macedo in 1908. The materials are written in Spanish and relate largely to Mexican legal matters and mining interests. The documents were the property of Pablo Macedo y González Saravia, a lawyer and professor of political economy at the Escuela de Leyes (School of Law), and were possibly collected by family members in an effort to prove the family's title to the estate Hacienda of Nuestra Senora del Rosario (Our Lady of the Rosary).
