This collection contains selected items from the archive of Santiago Tafolla, including Santiago’s 1908 handwritten memoir. The Tafolla archive includes personal and research material related to Santiago Tafolla and his family, including photographs, correspondence, records of military service, and books. Some research material, along with a few personal documents and correspondence, belonged to Fidel Tafolla, grandson of Santiago, who initiated researching and editing Santiago’s memoir. This collection includes multiple handwritten and typed drafts and translations of Santiago’s memoir, which was eventually published in 2009 by Santiago’s great-granddaughters, Carmen Tafolla and Laura Tafolla, as "A Life Crossing Borders."
