University of California, San Diego – Southworth Spanish Civil War CollectionSince its acquisition by the Library in 1966 under the aegis of Gabriel Jackson, the Southworth Collection has increased in size to over 13,000 books, pamphlets, periodicals, newspapers, posters, and manuscripts. Publications by Republicans, Falangists, Catholics, anarchists, communists, socialists, agrarian reformers, and regional political parties are all represented, as are those by Spanish exiles and partisans outside Spain. The collection holds all works by such prominent writers as Diego Martinez, Juan Negrin, Indalecio Prieto, Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera, and Fernando de los Rios. Also included are commentaries by non-Spanish writers of the period as diverse as Ernest Hemingway and Joseph Goebbels.
