Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
This file group consists of correspondence from various colleagues, publishers, family, and friends. Frequent and notable names found throughout the correspondence include Octavio Paz, Juan Vicente Melo, Carlos Fuentes, José Miguel Oviedo, Sergio Galindo, Félix Grande, Guillermo Cabrera Infante, Homero Aridjis, Carlos Monsivaís, Rosario Castellanos, José Bianco, Vicente Rojo, Hugo J. Verani (University of California, Davis), Saúl Sosnowski (University of Maryland at College Park), Juan Armando Epple (University of Oregon), Bruno Arcudi (State University of New York at Buffalo), Manuel Andújar (Alianza Editorial), Mario Muchnik (Muchnik Editores and Ariel/Seix Barral Editoriales), Fernando Vidal Buzzi (Editorial Sudamericana), and many others. Given the disorganized state of the material upon receipt in the repository, the correspondence has been arranged chronologically (by decades), and only the correspondence that arrived in groupings or was easily identified has been separated, including that of Octavio Paz, Juan Vicente Melo, Carlos Fuentes, José Miguel Oviedo, Sergio Galindo, Bruno Arcudi, and the family correspondence, chiefly Pacheco´s wife, daughters, and mother.
Additional description of names identified throughtout the correspondence was provided by PU gradudate student, Miguel Domínguez.
As no original order was discernible, materials were arranged in file groups by type of materials. Additionally, a large number of the writings were undated, untitled, unattributed, and in many cases, drafts and fragments mixed together, which were impossible to separate and identify given the disorganized state of the material upon receipt.
No materials were removed from the collection during 2019 processing beyond routine appraisal practices.
