Juan Gelman (1930-2014) was an Argentine poet, translator, journalist, and
human rights activist. His papers contain handwritten, typewritten, and printouts of
his writings, correspondence, notes, research files, awards and certificates, and
personal photographs. A significant portion of the papers feature analog and
born-digital investigative files relating to human rights investigations and
campaigns Gelman conducted with his spouse, Mara La Madrid, on the forced kidnapping
and death of his son and pregnant daughter-in-law, Marcelo Gelman and María Claudia
García Irureta Goyena. Also included are files on his search to find his missing
granddaughter, Macarena Gelman.
