Scope and content

The Elián González Collection consists of copies of newspaper clippings and court orders documenting the case of the Cuban refugee child Elián González.  In 1999 when he was five years old, González was rescued at sea off the Florida coast. His mother had drowned during their passage from Cuba on a raft.  Relatives in Miami took custody of him and fought to keep him in the United States instead of being returned to Cuba with his father. In addition to clippings, the collection also includes memorabilia and photographs.  Clippings have been added to the collection following up on González, who returned to Cuba with his father in April 2000 after a months of court cases and protests in Miami's Cuban-American community.
