ANNOUNCEMENT: The History Committee of Operation Pedro Pan Group (OPPG) is about to embark on a book publishing project, namely the publication of a photographic or pictorial history of the operation. As initially conceived, the book will be divided into three major parts, namely (1) life in the Miami-Dade shelters and transit stations, (2) life in the orphanages and foster homes, and (3) Pedro Pan reunions. The primary objective of the project is to preserve and disseminate in book form the history of the operation. Any net benefits, accruing from the sale of the book after publication costs are recovered, will be used to continue carrying out the not-for-profit mission of the organization. The OPPG’s History Committee is comprised of several distinguished scholars, including Drs. José Azel, Carlos Eire, and Victor Triay, to name a few. If you have photographs and/or documents that you would like to have included in the book, please do not hesitate to contact Carmen Valdivia, Director and Chair, Operation Pedro Pan Group History Committee or Carmen Romanach, President, Board of Directors, Operation Pedro Pan Group, Inc. Both can be contacted at Arrangements would have to be made for copyright purposes prior to publication. Upon publication, we will seek to permanently store donated photographs and documents with the Operation Pedro Pan Collection of the University of Miami's Cuban Heritage Collection, where they will be used periodically to mount exhibitions in different venues and will also be made available for research purposes to students, writers and academics. The University of Miami Library is uniquely qualified in the preservation of historical documents and materials as it enjoys the proper facilities and technology required of the task. We look forward to your participation in the project. José Amaro, Member, Operation Pedro Pan Group History Committee.
