History

Operation Pedro Pan was the largest migration of unaccompanied minors in history, totaling more than 14,000 children who immigrated to the United States from Cuba under the auspices of the Catholic Welfare Bureau from 1960-1962. Masterminded by Monsignor Bryan O. Walsh, James Baker with Cuban notables Ramon and Polita Grau among many others, they worked to secure visa waivers for the children to leave Cuba. Once in the United States, Monsignor Walsh organized the housing of those children with no relatives or friends to stay with, resulting in various notable Camps around the Miami Area, most notably Camp Matecumbe, while many other children were relocated to various other homes and schools throughout the United States.
