The archive of Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez (1927–2014) opens Oct. 21 for research at The University of Texas at Austin's Harry Ransom Center, a humanities research library and museum.
Finding aids for the archive are available in English and Spanish. Also available is a selection of digitized materials from the archive.
"This archive, strengthening UT's world-class humanities collection, not only offers research opportunities to our students and to Texans, but will attract a global research community to Austin," said UT President Gregory L. Fenves.
More than 75 boxes of documents constitute the archive of the Colombian-born author, journalist, screenwriter and key figure in Latin American history and politics. Researchers will have access to manuscript drafts of published and unpublished works, correspondence, 43 photograph albums, 22 scrapbooks, research material, notebooks, newspaper clippings, screenplays and ephemera.
