José Martí, Cuban Patriot

By Richard Butler Gray | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

I AM MAINLY INDEBTED in this study to two persons: Dr. William S. Stokes, Professor of Political Science at Claremont Men's College, and Dr. Gonzalo de Quesada y Miranda, Director of the Martí Seminar at the University of Havana. During the twenty months that I spent in Cuba, Professor Quesada gave me many hours of his time and the hospitality of his home, as he furnished me with valuable information from his extensive knowledge of the life of Martí, original documents, and rich interpretations of the Cuban scene. It is difficult to imagine how the work would have progressed without their advice. I am also deeply obligated to Dr. Charles H. Backstrom, of the University of Minnesota, for his numerous helpful suggestions in emending the manuscript, and to Dr. Eduardo NealeSilva, of the University of Wisconsin, for his assistance.

Many persons in Cuba aided in this investigation of Martí. I am particularly grateful to Ernesto Mercado of the Fragua Martiana for his help in making books and other materials available. The staff of the National Library of Cuba must be credited with many hours of work on my behalf.

I am very grateful to the Cuban Ministry of Education, which, in cooperation with the United States State Department, made my stay in Cuba from 1955 to 1957 possible through an award under the Buenos Aires Convention for the promotion of inter-American scholarship and understanding. For his aid and consideration in this program ray appreciation also goes to Mr. Francis J. Donahue, who was Cultural Affairs Officer of the American Embassy. My sincere gratitude, in addition, must be extended to the Cuban people in general,
