Overview and metadata sections

James J. Doyle was a student at Temple University in the 1970s. He studied with Dr. William Sharp, focusing on South American history and politics. One figure Doyle researched was Carlos Montenegro, who was a Bolivian nationalist and diplomat, director of the Sintesis Economica Americana, and one of the founders of the Movimiento Nacionalista Revolcinario (MNR).

The collection consists of James Doyle's academic research on Bolivian statesmen and politics, with a particular focus on Carlos Montenegro. Materials include original correspondence to and from Montenegro and other figures; typescripts by Montenegro; photographs; newspaper clippings; Doyle's manuscript notes and drafts; Doyle's correspondence with academic advisors; photocopies of articles and book chapters; audio cassette recordings of interviews; published volumes on Bolivian politics and history by Carlos Montenegro, Augusto Cespedes, and others; and a small number of pamphlets and posters.
