Archive of the literary Latin American magazine SUR now available through the Claremont Colleges Libraries


SUR, 1931-1992

The library now provides online access to the archive of the literary Latin American magazine SUR for 1931-1992, via the Archives Unbound platform. SUR was founded in 1931 by Argentine intellectual Victoria Ocampo (1890-1979). The digitized version of SUR contains images of the complete magazine, including covers, photographs and advertisements; a comprehensive index correcting mistakes and inconsistencies; manuscripts from the first issue; and unpublished letters by Victoria Ocampo. SUR features the writings of the leading figures in literature, philosophy, history and the plastic arts not only from Latin America, but also from North America and Western Europe.
