El legado documental de Roger Mansell por Yolia Tortolero

Mexican historian Yolia Tortolero has just published a profile of my dad's research: "El legado documental de Roger Mansell" (PDF) in Diario de Historias, which goes out to Spanish-speaking librarians and archivists. My dad passed away in 2010 but he left his archive of books, documents, film and more about POWs of the Japanese during WWII to the Hoover Institution. He also left his book, expertly edited by historian Linda Goetz Holmes, Captured: The Forgotten Men of Guam (Naval Institute Press).

Tortolero, by the way, is the author of the hands-down best book about Francisco Madero's Spiritism, El espiritismo seduce a Francisco I. Madero, a book which was quite difficult to find but is now, quite wonderfully, available on Kindle. I'll be blogging more about her work anon.
