Scope and content
This collection contains research notes, reports, documents, pamphlets, and 3D objects from Stephen Stein, a history professor at the University of Miami. Most of his research captures the history, traditional, and political climate of South America in the 20th century with a focus on Peru as a center of study. The Peruvian retablos are from the master retablo maker, Nicario Jimenez Quispe, who inherited his skills from a long line of retablo makers in Alcamenca in Ayacucho, Peru, which is located in the Andes.
